What I did dislike was that 1 she made up boy friends and obsessed about them. I understand why she made up the doctor so Natalie would be okay--but this isn't the first boyfriend she made up and she has these fantasies about what it will be like when they are married--foolishness. She kept after him about being a felon, then told him he'd cost her the job she's applied to because they wouldn't promote her if she were dating a felon. Then Callahan said he know she was the one when she hit him with the hockey stick.
I never saw anything in Grace for a man to fall in love with. Extremely superficial, unable to let go of the past. She gave up her fiance for her little sister whom I also liked but never got over how she'd sacrificed and Andrew was a terrible man.

Why did Callahan love Grace? I have no idea. Because she read to the old folks?
Our Love Is Too Good to Feel So Bad
She was one dimensional, had few redeeming characteristics. There was a great deal of humor I enjoyed. The dog was darling. Again, although an edit or two short of terrific, this book is better than a lot of books out there. I just expect more of Ms. So I really like the author's characters, and I almost always end up smiling at the end, but she takes so freaking long to even give the reader a hint of a romance.
I get the premise of this book -- girl dumped by her fiance for her sister. I don't need to read half a book about how awkward it is, and how the girl does ridiculous things to try to find someone new, etc. Actually, I could handle the half a book thing if the heroine did anything halfway nice with the hero before I was halfway through the book.

Other than to talk about how good looking he is, she does some really not very nice things to and towards him before they ever get to the point where they have a normal conversation. It's frustrating for me as a reader. Of course I want to see the couple at least intersecting fairly early in the book. Anyway, although I like the book and gave it four stars, I think I'm going to have to give myself a break from this author for a bit because I'm just too frustrated by the very slow plotting.
Normally, I prefer reading historical romances to contemporaries, but Kristan Higgins is among the very, very few exceptions.

It's finally dawned on me, though, that I gravitate so strongly towards KH's contemporary romances because most of them aren't truly romances. As many other reviewers have noted, the majority of Higgins' novels seem to qualify more as 'chick lit' arghhate that term! Romance is PART of her novels, of course, but often neither the salient nor best part. These solutions grew out of fourteen years of pioneering research into ways couples solve their problems, delving into every aspect of life together, from sex to money, from affection to conversatiion, from watching TV to planning for the future -- all based on what happens to real love between real people amid the stress and distraction of real life.

Kirshenbaum was born in Uzbekistan in Her Jewish parents survived because her mother, who spoke good Russian and Polish, was able to pass as a gentile.
The family spent the first four years of her life in a displaced persons' camp in Germany before her parents separated, her father going with her older sister to live in Israel, Kirshenbaum coming with her mother and stepbrother to the US.

I chose him for her. At the age of 16, she decided to go to Israel to look for her biological father. The temptation to stay in Israel with her father was strong but she decided to return to the US to study, taking courses in philosophy in New York, before moving on to postgraduate studies in phenomenological psychology. When Good People Have Affairs is simple, concise and full of what to some may be blindingly obvious and to others could be the insight necessary to change their lives.

Literature it isn't, and for readers not involved in two relationships, the plain, often repetitive prose can be akin to reading a shopping catalogue. It includes a list of 17 motives for affairs, ranging from the "see-if affair" to the "midmarriage-crisis affair", via the hyphen-crazed "let's-kill-this-relationship-and-see-if-it-comes-back-to-life affair".
The book's core lies in understanding the motives for an affair, and using that information to sort out what the "cheater" - to use the genre's lexicon - may have been wanting. And she is keen to clarify that she is talking about "good people - people who don't want to hurt anyone and when they do realise that they have hurt someone are truly sorry, and paralysed.

That's the emotional state they are in. Kirshenbaum insists that she is one of the good people, contrary to what her detractors would have us believe. Her peers, she says, told her not to write the book, arguing that she had overstepped the boundaries of the practice. You're not allowed to say that to people as a therapist and I did, because I promised myself as a kid that I would always tell the truth, about love and about everything. I felt that was what I had to do, otherwise it was pointless to write books if I wasn't going to tell the truth.
One of the most contentious points in the book is the advice that being honest is not always the best policy, that more harm than good may come of the unburdening of misdeeds. The advice comes from her own experience.
