Secrets to Happiness

Holly Frick has a lot going on. She's an unattached divorced woman who's just adopted a dog, is sleeping with a younger man and then she starts dating the man her best friend just had an affair with. She wants to be carefree, loved and live life to its fullest, but her mid-western sense of morality keeps stepping in on her and her friends' lives.

p. 184
“You realize it’s just neurotic, don’t you?”
“What is?”

“Your inflexible, puritanical attitude. It’s a common attribute of the truly neurotic. Along with wanting everybody to like you and waking up in the middle of the night.”

I didn't love this book--it follows the typical chick-lit plotline without much ado. The cutest subplot involved her adopted dog, but he's forgotten for chapters at a time. Maybe a beach read for someone who identifies with one of the life experiences in the book...
