Publisher's Summary

How far would you go to get over a guy?

When Grace Emerson's ex-fiancé starts dating her younger sister, extreme measures are called for. To keep everyone from obsessing about her love life, Grace announces that she's seeing someone. Someone wonderful. Someone handsome. Someone completely made up. Who is this Mr. Right? Someone - exactly unlike her renegade neighbor, Callahan O'Shea. Well, someone with his looks, maybe. His hot body. His knife-sharp sense of humor. His smarts and big heart. Whoa. No. Callahan O'Shea is not her perfect man! Not with his unsavory past. So why does Mr. Wrong feel so - right?

    "A great accident!"

    I purchased this book by mistake, there is a book about urban legends with the same title. I generally don't buy this type of book, but I loved it. The narrator could not have been better. I have listed to over 1,000 audio books and she is one of the best I have ever heard.

    "Excellent Listen"

    The narrators can make or break a book--Xe Sands does a wonderful narration. Kristan Higgins, I await your next book on Audible--checking every day.

    "Very glad I picked up this story!"

    Too good to be true by Kristan Higgins (Audio Edition)
    Narrated by Xe Sands

    Callahan O’Shea….. sigh….. what a great leading man. Loved his honest, straightforward approach, his flirty side and pretty much everything else about him. Grace is one lucky lady. I liked her character as well. Yes, she took a lot of guff from her family, and put herself out more than some might. She has spunk though, and goes for what she wants in life, instead of just trying to please her family, which I think is important.

    I LOVED how the leads met it was great! You could feel the instant attraction and I couldn't wait to have them in the scenes together again. The fact that this is pretty much a clean/no sex book (it's implied not described) does not detract from the story at all. With Higgins wonderful skills at writing, I still feel the characters chemistry and passion for each other.

    As always,with this author, I chuckled often throughout this story felt sadness, and was also shocked a few times. The narrator Xe Sands did a fantastic job.

    Very glad I picked up this story!

    "Loved it!!"

    Thank you for bringing Kristan Higgins' older novels to audio. They are brilliant. I couldn't have enjoyed this couple more!
    And as for Xe Sands, she is simply a genius comedic narrator. I could listen to her read the phone book.

    Story
    "Hot handy man"
    Any additional comments?

    Enjoyed this book very much. The heroine, Grace, is funny, strong and witty. However, she is stupidly indulgent to her younger sister. I did not like the younger sister. She is whiny, stupid and expects way too much from Grace - WAY too much.
    The sister ends up engaged to Grace's ex-fiancé. Grace pretends it does not hurt and that she is over the creep, but it hurts her a great deal. The ex-fiance is self indulgent and self centered. I do not like him at all. In order to make her younger sister feel better about stealing the fiancé, Grace pretends she is involved with another man. She chooses her neighbor, Callahan O'Shea as her pretend significant other. Callahan does carpenter work and is a major hotty with a major secret past.

    Graces's older sister, who is temporarily living with Grace, is in on the "sham" relationship, but no one else in her family is in the know. I really like the older sister. She is a great character. Grace's mother is an artist with an unusual subject for her art - it makes for some really funny scenes.

    As you can imagine, trying to juggle a sham relationship with all the members of her family, creates a challenge for Grace. Callahan's hotness also is a major challenge. All in all this is a great book that kept me interested throughout and made me laugh out loud many times. The reader is excellent and helps make this book a great choice.

    This book made me laugh out loud numerous time! and the Narrator really brought the characters to life. I don't know if it would have been as good reading it on my own. I definitely recommend the Audible version!

    "The whole fam damily"

    I heard that the author treated betrayal in a new way. She sure did. A fun romp through a family and a hilarious courtship.
