Secrets to Happiness by Sarah Dunn Review & Giveaway
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.
I was impressed with this novel, Sarah Dunn has a unique way with words that is filled with both emotion and humor. If you are looking for a weekend Chick-lit book Secrets to Happiness is the book to read. Her main is character, Holly is very realistic and very complex her best friend is as well. If I was going to describe this book in one word it would be New York, Secrets to Happiness is a very New York book. This would be the perfect book for book clubs.
Not only does this book contain a Reader’s Guide, it also contains Sarah Dunn’s list of good books for bed rest and rainy afternoons.
One of my favorite parts of the book was were Holly was going book-shopping and had to set herself a limit due to her over enthusiastic penchant for book-buying.
