Giveaway - Secrets to Happiness - Sarah Dunn


Thanks to the generosity of The Hachette Book Group, I have a copy of Sarah Dunn's latest book, Secrets to Happiness, to giveaway.

From the publisher:

"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."

To be entered, leave a comment about something that makes you happy! Open to both US and Canada, no po boxes please. PLEASE make sure I have a way to contact you - either through your blog or by leaving your email. Giveaway ends July 7th, 6 pm EST. Good luck and check the sidebar for ongoing giveaway.

My husband, my son and my two chihuahua's make me happy, well maybe not the 12 week old one. But he will once he is house broken! Actually psychiatrists say, nothing can MAKE you happy or sad, you make yourself that way. It is only how you respond to things.

My husband makes me very happy. One day I bought a couple bottles of champagne and the check-out lady asked me what the special occasion was. "My husband's coming home!" I told her. She smiled and asked, "Has he been gone long?"

"Yup," I said. "All day!

Hoping the next 15 years are as good as the last fifteen.
