"Until There Was You" by Kristan Higgins

My Book Summary : Cordelia (Posey) has always been a 'little thing' throughout her life. When she was younger that was okay, but when she got into high school is when peers would start to rag on her about it, and even though she has always known she was adopted, being so never really helped the situation, so she has always tried to stay in the background. But when she spots Liam during his first day at high school, looking like a bad boy and too cool for the school, her crush on him starts. However, Liam always paid her very little attention, even after he started working for her parents at their German restaurant, but after Posey over hears Liam talking rudely about her to his friends her heart completely brakes.

Now years have passed, Liam is a widower with a teenage daughter and they have moved back to town, and Posey finds herself falling back into a crush (and maybe more) with him. Keeping her distance would be the best idea. However, that seems hard to do, especially when her parents ask him to keep visiting and the usual things that go on when living in a small town. But when Liam starts looking to reciprocate her feelings that should be good, right? Or will Posey's heart get broken all over again?

My Book Review : 5 out of 5 stars!!!!!! Oh My Goodness!!!! This is a wonderful, funny, and sweet novel that I could not get enough of!!! It is by far the best novel I have read of Kristan's, just topping out my old favorite of hers "Too Good To Be True!"

This is the FIRST novel of Kristan's where you get to read from both points-of-view of the main characters, Posey & Liam, and I have got to say I was SOOO Happy about that!! As I love to be able to see what the guy thinks! =0)

Posey is such a great character. You get to read about how timid she was in high school, then how friendly and outgoing she was as an adult.

Liam is great and sounds so hot! I love how you get to read about his memories with his wife and daughter. And how he's now dealing with being a single parent of a pretty teenage daughter. It's all very funny the way he stresses out over the little things, but very endearing as well.

Then we have the great cast of secondary characters from Posey's family (her parents--who are definitely German and proud of it, her brother--who is a surgeon and loves it, her brother-in-law--who is a character in and of himself, her cousin, and her 'Little Sister') to Posey's friends .... they were great and I really appreciated that Kristan wrapped up the secondary plots so nothing was left hanging.

All in all it is a great book, I loved reading it, and I think if you are a fan of Kristan Higgins' books then you will enjoy reading it too!! Or if you like any of Susan Mallery's books you should appreciate this one also!

Book Teaser(s) :
Teaser #1
Posey felt a nudge at her side. "Ma'am? Hands behind your head, please." It was the female cop.
"Wait, wait, wait," Posey said, obeying. "I barely know this guy. His cousin fixed us up. Fun date, don't you think?"
"Are you aware that he stole his grandmother's car and jewelry?" the officer asked.
"No! Jeesh, Steve! That's really low." ~ within Chapter 14
