Giveaway – All I Ever Wanted

Callie Grey, is a turning thirty and that’s the least of her problems.  Her long-time crush isn’t reciprocating her feelings.  AND he’s her boss, so her work-life isn’t peachy either.  Now, you think you’ve been there?  Here’s something I can guess hasn’t happened to you.  Her mom is throwing her a birthday bash….. in a funeral home!  Don’t you want to read more?

This fun novel by Kristan Higgins is the perfect end-of-summer read.  I laughed out loud so many times, Sean wanted to know what in the world I was reading! I feel like her character, Callie, is my new best friend – she’s warm, funny, and outrageous.  Her muses (who talk to her in her head, don’t yours?) include Michelle Obama and Betty Boop!

“Thirty minutes later, I stood in line at the Department of Motor Vehicles, and the effects of being emotionally run down by the man I loved — and now hated — but still loved — were catching up with me. Michelle Obama had abandoned me, regretfully acknowledging that I was beyond help, and Betty Boop was clamping her lips together and blinking back tears. Trying to keep the choo-choo train of despair at bay, I glanced around. Gray, grimy tile floors. Dingy white walls. I stood in the middle of a line of about ten people, all of us listless and lifeless and loveless . . . or so it seemed.”

Author Kristan Higgins is the 2010 RITA Winner for Best Contemporary Single Title Romance for her previous book, Too Good To Be True.  All I Ever Wanted recently made it to the USA Today’s Bestseller List.

“Real life, true love, and lots of laughs” is the tagline on Kristan Higgins website and perfectly describes her books.  Learn more about Kristan and read the first chapter of All I Ever Wanted at
