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.

Another New York Chick Flick novel. Learn more about New York and how New Yorkers view their lives and the world outside New York. Fantastical slight disgusting modern woman life situations - slightly enthralling... Each chapter is perspective on a new character with a few touch back chapters to the original main character and her friend. Despite the naturalistic front cover photo - I could feel the concrete of the city on just about every page.

SPOILER ALERT: dog on front page is called 'panty' and the gay guy with all the high risk activity becomes straight with the straightest character in the book.
