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 fianc 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....

The Theory of Happily Ever After
By Kristin Billerbeck
I will start off by saying that this is the first book by Kristin Billerbeck that I have ever read, so I can't compare this work with her previous works. The premise of this story sounded interesting happiness expert dumped by her now ex-fiancé and expected to give a talk about happiness. O'kay sounds like a potential disaster in the making or one of the Hallmark movies that people seem to love watching while I read away.
Imagine my surprise w ...more
Kristin Billerbeck, guys. Kristin. Billerbeck.
Need I say more? Obviously this novel is pure gold!
When I saw that Kristin Billerbeck had a new novel releasing, I piglet squealed! And oh, it was sooo worth the wait!! Kristin Billerbeck is the queen of Chick Lit (seriously, I grovel in awe at her feet), and The Theory of Happily Ever After just solidifies her reign with her signature style that will have you snorting in an undignified manner. Long live the queen! ;-)
Maggie is nerdy and confused, b ...more
After not have written a book for some time. Billerbeck hs knocked it out of the park with this come back book.
I was a fan of Maggie's from the start. Billerbeck writes so that they humor pours off the page.
I really loved that she made a reference to DJ Tanner. You must read the book to see what she had to say about DJ.
I gave this book 4 stars and I recommend it.

I really enjoyed this book. It was far different than the Christian Romances that I normally read, and that was refreshing. I love mixing up my reading, even if I don't realize I did it until after I started it.
This book is inspiring and actually had some great thoughts about how to be happy. I am going to try making them a part of my life. I love when a work of fiction is able to inspire and change your life for the better.
This was a really quick, easy read and it was the perfect break from my ...more
The Theory of Happily Ever After was such a fun cute book to read. The concept that the study of happiness is a science and the whole background of being on the singles cruise ship was just a different and enjoyable setting.
Dr. Maggie Maguire is the star of the science of happiness except, she is not happy and hasn’t been for some time. She was supposed to get married, but her fiancé has left her and is marrying someone else. So not only her life but her career hinges on her writing and studying ...more
The Theory of Happily Ever After is a rom-com about a scientist and bestselling author who's become a tad bit obsessed with rom-coms. If you're looking for a fun all-over-the-place romance that takes some outlandish turns while on a cruise ship out at sea, then this book has got you covered! I confess, there are things I liked and didn't like so much about the nature of this story.
While there's a lot of silliness, there are also some sweet and serious themes about moving forward and finding hope ...more
"Forgetting the pain isn't the answer - feeling the love we had is."
Kristin Billerbeck spins a youthful, snarky, aching yet hopeful tale between a down-in-the dumps happiness scientist/researcher Maggie and a brooding contemplative Sam set during a singles cruise to Mexico. It is told in first person present tense from Maggie's perspective, which helps the reader really get into her brain but does lead the plot to slow down at times because Maggie is stubborn and somewhat clueless or sometimes s ...more
