The Theory of Happily Ever After by Kristin Billerbeck

About the Book
According to Dr. Maggie Maguire, happiness is serious science, as serious as Maggie takes herself. But science can't always account for life's anomalies--for instance, why her fiancé dumped her for a silk-scarf acrobat and how the breakup sent Maggie spiraling into an extended ice cream-fueled chick flick binge.
Concerned that she might never pull herself out of this nosedive, Maggie's friends book her as a speaker on a "New Year, New You" cruise in the Gulf of Mexico. Maggie wonders if she's qualified to teach others about happiness when she can't muster up any for herself. But when a handsome stranger on board insists that smart women can't ever be happy, Maggie sets out to prove him wrong. Along the way she may discover that happiness has far less to do with the head than with the heart.

Filled with memorable characters, snappy dialogue, and touching romance, Kristin Billerbeck's The Theory of Happily Ever After shows that the search for happiness may be futile--because sometimes happiness is already out there searching for you.

My Thoughts
Pretty much the only other books I’ve read by this author, were her Perfectly Misunderstood series, but this book sounded cute and fun so I jumped at the chance to read it!
There was witty banter, hysterical (minor) misfortunes, and entertaining relationships. I was laughing out loud quite often while reading!
Maggie was quite the amusing heroine. She’d been dealt a bit of a blow and it was fun to watch as she overcame it and discovered who she really was. There were blunders along the way (that were really funny) but she emerged from it all stronger.
I liked Sam a lot too! It takes a little while to really figure him out (because Maggie has trouble doing the same) but under his, occasionally less than tactful, exterior is a really great guy who wants to help others.
Maggie’s friends alternately amused and annoyed me but in the end they just wanted what was best for their friend.

In short I thoroughly enjoyed this book and it makes for the perfect summer read! So if you’re looking for a book to make you smile while you’re getting some sun this summer, look no further!
