Secret to Happiness

This was book recommended to me by Amazon. Based on the books I'd previously purchased they thought I'd like this one. I really don't know how they came to that conclusion though since I rarely read chit lit and this wasn't a book I particularly loved. I'll write a review for it anyway though.

"Holly Frick has just endured the worst kind of breakup: the kind where you're still in love with the person leaving you. While Holly's 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 asks Holly for advice about her love life - with one of Holly's exes! Holly decides that if everyone around her can take pleasure wherever they find it, so will she. As any self-respecting thirtyish 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."

This book wasn't quotable, so therefore, no quotes. And overall, I found it a bit depressing. It shows a sometimes realistic, but sad side of human nature - cheating, deception, low morals etc. Overall, I was glad when the story was over because it didn't have any major redeeming qualities to me. I didn't connect to the characters, learn anything new or get pulled into the story. I think some people might find it a good way to pass the time and mildly entertaining, but it wasn't my style at all so I'm not going to recommend it. Not to mention, it really doesn't get you a centimeter closer to the "Secret to Happiness."
