We gave it a B

Holly Frick is a recent New York divorcée, a ?35-year-old writer with ?a rigid moral compass and a 22-year-old lover. As she wags her finger at friends’ messy love lives — her best ?girlfriend is cheating on her husband with a hot Buddhist; a writer colleague trolls the Internet for drug-fueled ?sex — Holly simultaneously grates and charms. Fans of Sarah Dunn’s first novel, ?The Big Love, should keep their expectations in check. Secrets to Happiness isn’t quite as smart or fresh, but it still makes for good, sharp fun. When the Buddhist asks Holly condescendingly if the novel she wrote was chick lit, our heroine? retorts: ”I wrote the entire thing in lipstick, actually.” B
