August 28: First Day Back and All is Well

Happiness Sold SeparatelyHappiness Sold Separately by Lolly Winston
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I enjoyed Good Grief, so when I saw HSS at the library book sale, I scooped it up, and it was an okay read. The characters Winston creates are interesting, but somehow I found the plot disjointed and lacking in power overall. There are a lot of them: the husband and wife, the various lovers, the tree guy, the various lovers' lovers, the kid (who was one of my favorite characters, actually), the friend. . . . and that whole cast o' characters weakened the overall impact of the story. Okay but not stellar.
