I ain’t gonna link to it, but I’ve said it so many times–HEA is in the eye of the reader. I was going to post this at Jorrie’s blog but I decided not to because I have a challenge for you, dear readers…….Name for me a book that might not fall under the banner of romance that has an HEA (boy gets girl).
I’ll go first……..Good Grief by Lolly Winston (there’s a link to your right). Woman’s husband dies, woman has complete mental breakdown involving chocolate, broken dishes and bunny slippers, woman pulls herself together, moves and sells house and gets a job. Woman ends up owning own business, taking care of MIL with Alzheimers, takes in her “Little Sister” (from big brothers big sisters) AND gets the guy at the end.
So, yeah death isn’t exactly the funniest, happiest subject in the world and Lolly’s main character could have been a total dishrag but she so wasn’t. The writing is excellent, and the book is funny (and poignant) at times. Not a romance. If I had to stick a label on it, I’d say it falls somewhere between chick lit and women’s fiction (eyeing Sybil).
This book is on my keeper shelf. :tater:
Since Lyn mentioned her book (Leaving Mama available now from Samhain) I thought I’d point ya’ll toward her blog where she’s got a bit of a contest going. I WISH I had time to read it for her now 😡
