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 fiancĂ© 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.” --RT Book Reviews  Four Star Review
CLICK TO PURCHASE:

I rarely listen to music while I’m writing. Sometimes I keep the television on to mimic the kids being home and the chaos. (I nearly have an empty nest.) But in The Theory of Happily Ever After, I have a karaoke event and because Dr. Maggie is so ridiculous, I wanted to give them some of the hardest songs to sing. I mostly stuck to the rock anthems that my kids and I have been known to screech in the car:

“Dream On” by Aerosmith

“Rock of Ages” by Def Lepperd

“Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen

“Livin’ on a Prayer” by Bon Jovi

“Sweet Home Alabama” by Lynyrd Skynyrd


One that I left off is not one of my favorites to hear people sing -- because only Whitney Houston and Dolly Parton can handle this one: “I Will Always Love You.”
