Review: Too Good To Be True by Kristan Higgins

First line: Making up a boyfriend is nothing new for me.

From the back cover: When Grace Emerson's ex-fiance 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?

My thoughts: This was another fast, light-hearted read by Kristan Higgins, filled with humor and flawed characters that don't always conform to what's normal. Grace has a problem with talking before she thinks and a habit of making up boyfriends. Her foray into the dating scene has hysterical, from blind dates and online dating to taking a "how to get a guy" seminar with her friends. There were so many instances when I was laughing out loud as I was reading, especially with some of the funny sayings that Grace uses - my favorite being "God's nightgown!" A great romance that was believable, funny and not too cheesy. I can't wait to get my hands on another Kristan Higgins book!
