All I Ever Wanted ~ Review

And no sign of any forthcoming babies to rock in ol' Georgebury, Vermont. For Callie Grey, turning thirty means coming to grips with the fact that her boss (and five-week fling) is way overdue in his marriage proposal. And way off track, because Mark has suddenly announced his engagement to the company's new Miss Perfect. If that isn't bad enough, her mom decides to throw her a three-oh birthday bash in the family funeral home.

Bad goes to worse when she stirs up a crazy relationship with the town's not so warm and fuzzy veterinarian, Ian McFarland, in order to flag Mark's attention. So Ian is more comfortable with animals. . . . So he's formal, orderly and just a bit tense. The ever-friendly, fun-loving and spontaneous Callie decides it's time for Ian to get a personality makeover. But, dang, if he doesn't shock the heck out of her, she might actually fall for Vermont's unlikeliest eligible bachelor. . .

This is the first book by Kristin Higgins for me. The storyline is good and I found myself laughing out loud @ times and yet grabbing a tissue @ others. Callie has Loved Mark for a very long time and is devastated that he is dating someone else. Heartbreak? YES! Then she finds out her mom is throwing her big 30 bash @ a funeral home! Crazy huh!!

While I did enjoy this book I have to be honest and say there is ALOT of Foul Language and I found this really frustrating. It didn't contribute to the story line or situations at all and therefore I must give this book only 3 stars.
