The Theory of Happily Ever After by Kristin Billerbeck
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 Take; This was a cute book. It would be a perfect read beside the pool or just as a summer read. I found myself smiling at some of the situations that Maggie found herself in. I didn't like the love triangle which was probably added to add more drama. I didn't think that it needed anymore so it would have been fine without it. If you like romance but don't want to feel like you are loosing brain cells the book for you.
