Throwback Review: Too Good To Be True by Kristan Higgins

Title: Too Good To Be True
Author: Kristan Higgins
Published: February 1, 2009
Publisher: HQN
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Pages: 384
Source: Harlequin Reader Service
Genre: Contemporary
Characters: Grace Emerson, Callahan O'Shea
My Rating:

When Grace Emerson's ex-fiancé starts dating her younger sister, extreme measures are called for. To keep everyone from obsessing about her love life, Grace announces that she's seeing someone. Someone wonderful. Someone handsome. Someone completely made up. Who is this Mr. Right? Someone...exactly unlike her renegade neighbor Callahan O'Shea. Well, someone with his looks, maybe. His hot body. His knife-sharp sense of humor. His smarts and big heart.

Whoa. No. Callahan O'Shea is not her perfect man! Not with his unsavory past. So why does Mr. Wrong feel so...right?

{This book was read in January 2009; This is the review I posted on Goodreads}

I absolutely loved it! This is the first book I've read by this author but I'm positive it won't be my last. Between Grace, her grandma Meme, and her sister Margs, you'll be laughing out loud from page one. All the characters are well developed and it makes you feel like you're apart of it too. Callahan. What can I say. The almost perfect man, he's looking for the same things she's looking for. There's only one slight imperfection, at least in the eyes of her family. The only thing I didn't like about this story (and there isn't much) was Natalie and Andrew. Without giving anything away, (you can read the back cover of the book to know that Andrew is her ex-fiance who leaves her for her younger sister Natalie) I just felt that Grace was a too forgiving to both of them. Sometimes I just wanted to scream at Grace to stop babying Natalie and helping her plan her wedding to the man you were supposed to be marrying! But other than that, it was a nice lite read that's highly entertaining.
