According to Dr. Maggie Maguire, happiness is serious—serious science, that is. But science can’t always account for life’s anomalies, like why her fiancé 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 unforgettable characters, snappy dialogue, and touching romance, 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.

PRAISE FOR THE THEORY OF HAPPILY EVER AFTER: 

“. . .the sweet will-they-or-won’t-they of Sam and Maggie’s courtship will please readers. . .”

                        —Publishers Weekly

“Billerbeck returns with a light Christian chick-lit novel just in time for the summer beach-read season, taking on stereotypes of femininity, intellect, and worth within an exciting cruise-ship setting with plenty of sunshine and gelato.”

                        —Booklist

“Billerbeck’s latest is full of memorable characters and witty dialogue. . . .The overall story reminds the reader that sometimes happiness will find you, no matter what you may do to avoid it.”

There’s relatable, & then there is a sense that the author wrote a book with you in mind. When reading “A Theory of Happily Ever After” I was consistently drawn to the later option. On that note, keep in mind that I was placed in the story since the very beginning. I walked each step alongside these characters because of how beautifully written they are.

Speaking of writing, let’s talk about that writing style real quick. This novels flows like a river. Sometimes in calming rhythms, other times in fast paces that leave you conflicted on what you truly want. With each rise & fall, the reader is left on the edge of their seat.

Would I recommend “The Theory of Happily Ever After” to someone? YES! Heck yes! Like I said previously, the characters are relatable (especially the opening chapter where we see a certain someone binge eating ice cream and watching some super sappy halmark.) Your emotions are also toyed with a bit and honestly, who doesn’t secretly adore that when it comes to a novel? You’ll laugh a little, wtf a little, maybe even cry a little depending on how drawn in you are. Which is a bit tricky because you will be 100% drawn in. Seriously, you should all go grab this novel and form book clubs over it.

I swear this is a review of the novel and not just a huge recommendation. Well, actually, isn’t that all a review is? Either way I have given this novel a coveted 5 stars and will be reading it again and again!

Kristin Billerbeck is the author of more than thirty novels, including What a Girl Wants and the Ashley Stockingdale and Spa Girls series. She is a fourth-generation Californian who loves her state and the writing fodder it provides.
