Life and Other Inconveniences is my second book I have read by Kristan Higgins and I have to admit my first was a miss for me. I was not all that excited to read this one but decided to give it a try after it was offered to me. Well, I was completely surprised and felt like I was reading something written by a different author. This one was a big hit for me!

Kristan Higgins does a great job creating engaging characters using warm humor, insightful thoughts with realistic, raw emotions and actions. For me, the humor has to have some warmth to it when more affecting topics are explored in a story. I have been told I am just a little over-sensitive when it comes to that.

I was hooked right from the start with these engaging likable and unlikable characters. I loved the dynamics between the characters and I enjoyed the complicated relationships between them. Old wounds are opened up and second chances are explored with emotional depth to the characters. Each are given a conflict and through each of their POV, we see them grow. At times I did feel their inner thoughts were a bit repetitive and would have preferred to see them grow more by their actions.

There is a mystery here as well and that added some suspense to the story. I really enjoyed how Higgins weaved that into the storyline and I thought it all came together well. The story wrapped up well and I felt very satisfied after reading this one. I highly recommend.

I received a copy from the publisher.
