Books From A to Z – All I Ever Wanted

For Callie Grey, turning thirty means coming to grips with the fact that her boss (and five-week fling) is way overdue in his marriage proposal. And way off track because Mark has suddenly announced his engagement to the company’s new Miss Perfect. If that isn’t bad enough, her mom decides to throw her a three-oh birthday bash in the family funeral home.

Bad goes to worse when she stirs up a crazy relationship with the town’s not so warm and fuzzy veterinarian, Ian McFarland, in order to flag Mark’s attention. So Ian is more comfortable with animals…. So he’s formal, orderly and just a bit tense. The ever-friendly, fun-loving and spontaneous Callie decides it’s time for Ian to get a personality makeover. But dang, if he doesn’t shock the heck out of her, she might actually fall for Vermont’s unlikeliest eligible bachelor. (via Goodreads)

My views:  Kristan Higgins is fast becoming one of my favourite fun read authors and her All I Ever Wanted (HQN) (Paperback) – Common  didn’t fail to disappoint me either. I love the way she built up the characters especially Ian’s.  How all the of Vermont’s single women attempt to connect with Ian and Callie’s attempts to get him to lighten up, make for a hilarious read.

Chick lit at it’s best!  😉
