Holly Frick has just endured the worst kind of breakup: the kind where you're still in love with the person leaving you. While her wounds are still dangerously close to the surface, her happily married best friend confesses over a bottle of wine that she is this close to having an affair. And another woman comes to Holly for advice about her love life--with Holly's ex!
Holly decides that if everyone around her can take pleasure wherever they find it, so will she. As any self-respecting 30ish New York woman would do, she brings two males into her life: a flawed but endearing dog, and a good natured, much younger lover. She's soon entangled in a web of emails, chance meetings, and misguided good intentions and must forge an entirely new path to Nirvana.
From the author of The Big Love, Secrets to Happiness is a big-hearted, knife-sharp, and hilariously entertaining story about the perils of love and friendship, sex and betrayal--and a thoroughly modern take on our struggle to be happy.
My VIEW so far: Ah I feel bad because I haven't finished the book yet, I will probably today at work. So far, it's just ok for me. The graphic sex descriptions are a turn off and some of the characters seem like they have nothing to live for and are just going through the daily motions of living. It's like a whole bunch of stories that seem to be connected by one thread. The dog on the cover though is very cute and his story is sad. Hopefully more to come when I give this book a full review.
