The Theory of Happily Ever After by Kristin Billerbeck {A Book Review}

The Theory of Happily Ever After by Kristin Billerbeck is one of those books that I wanted to LOVE but honestly, it was not my favorite. The story is of a scientist/author who has written a book about happiness, the science of it, and how people can create their own happiness. 

The book begins weeks after Dr. Maguire has been dumped by someone to whom she was engaged. Her friends "kidnap" her to take her on a trip and the story progresses from there. Will she find love again? Who was the man who dumped her? Is happiness actually a science? Will her friends stick close to her? Will she continue on the course her life is supposed to be on? 

There were parts of the story that were interesting but the vast majority of the story wasn't interesting to me and it was difficult to follow. And the whole things was so slllllooooowwww. This is also considered a christian fiction/romance book and honestly, I don't think it fits in that category. Now, it was clean but the first mention of God or anything related was in chapter 13. I had no issue with that other than the fact that it was categorized that way. 

I'd like to give Billerbeck's books another try but this one was not a win for me!
