Review: Until There Was You by Kristan Higgins

  Until There Was You by Kristan Higgins

Publisher: HQN Books
Pages: 384
Format: eARC
Buy the Book:Amazon
Goodreads:  She's having serious prom-night deja vu . . .

Posey Osterhagen can't complain.  She owns a successful architectural salvaging company, she's surrounded by her lovable, if off-center, family and she has a boyfriend - sort of.  Still, something's missing.  Something tall, brooding and criminally good-looking . . . something like Liam Murphy.

When Posey was sixteen, the bad boy of Bellsford, New Hampshire, broke her heart.  But now he's back, sending Posey's traitorous schoolgirl heart into overdrive once again.  She should be giving him a wide berth, but it seems fate has other ideas. . .

Kritters Thoughts:  I always love a book that you can dive into and find yourself half way through within the blink of an eye.  A story that takes you back to Posey's high school days when she was an outcast and had a crush on the bad boy in town.  The bad boy has returned a widower and father to a teenager.  Will she end up with her life long crush?  Will her business become successful?  A fun story that takes you on a ride, where you end up - I can't spoil this one.

With many characters in this book, I found it easy to get to know each one and love them all with their quirks.  Each character made the story.  From her crazy adoptive parents to a nutty cousin who hit a nerve each time she showed up in a scene, they all had an arc which gave this book more depth than it would have if just any of them had been edited away.  I loved these characters so much that I wouldn't mind a sequel to revisit them again. 

Another great book from Kristan Higgins that is a chick lit with a plot and story that makes you fall in love with each character.  I would recommend this to young and old who want a book to curl up with and fall deep into page after page. 

Rating: absolutely loved it and wanted a sequel
