Grace loves her family. She really does. That’s why she lied & told them them that she had a boyfriend.
Actually, it was that… and the pitying stares she was getting. I mean whose fiancé leaves them for their more adorable, perfect little sister? Grace’s did. The worst part? She couldn’t even find it in her to be angry at her sister, Natalie. Especially when she found her crying in the bathroom at their cousins wedding. What was she supposed to do? She found it terrifyingly easy to lie to her sister and tell her that she was way overAndrew because she was dating a pediatric surgeon – who could be more perfect?OK, maybe she did take it a bit far and let it run way to long – but she had to get throufgh this dry spell. She has absolutely no prospects. She’s a teacher at an upscale prep school for goodness sakes and her idea of fun is a Civil War reenactment. What man wouldn’t want that? Well, what man under 40?
While this is a contemporary romance, I really wouldn’t categorize it as such. At least for me, the book was more about Grace coming to terms with being a daughter and a sister. Sort of her realization, that her family were not just the people she loved but also individuals that she really needed to look at from a different angle. I really enjoyed it. The underlying romance was good but not as compelling as her growth as a person.Rating: B+

  1. I love Kristan Higgins' books. I thought that Grace's made up boyfriend thing was a little over the top, but overall I loved the story.

    I recently read The Next Best Thing by Kristan Higgins. At first I wasn't sure I was going to like it when I got the gist of the premise, but you know? It surprised me and I ended up loving it very very much.

  2. I'll be reading more of her books.
    I thought the boyfriend sounded silly, but she made it sound so plausible, it was so something that could have happened!
