Deftly mixing humor and pathos, Sarah Dunn's Secrets to Happiness delivers an entertaining story of professional women living the city life. It has been likened to a hybrid of Candace Bushnell, Edith Wharton, and Jane Austen, and Kirkus Reviews calls it a "smart chick-lit tale with dark undertones." Recently divorced Holly is intelligent and spunky-and her priceless ruminations on love, life, and happiness are not to be missed.

"By all appearances, Holly Frick is living the good life of a mid-30s divorcŽe in New York City. Her glamorous TV writing job (admittedly, it's a dreadful after-school sitcom) leaves time for her gorgeous boyfriend (OK, so he's embarrassingly young and dense, but he's cute) and her newly adopted dog (surely he will survive the cancer). Julie Dretzin's narration provides glimpses of Holly's anxiety peeping out from the cloak of her determined charm. Dretzin's natural style adds realism to Holly's conversations with her best friend, Amanda. Thanks to Dretzin's subtle variations in male characters, Holly's overtly gay co-writer is delightful, and her cheeseburger-chomping Buddhist love interest is intriguing. It seems that Holly surprises herself by discovering that compromises sometimes lead to happiness. N.M.C. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
