(83) Pieces of Happily Ever After


This was really a cute book. Pieces of Happily Ever After could have been ripped from a tabloid headline. But what happens after the husband leaves his wife for the Hollywood Starlet?

How does the wife hold it together? How does the precious four year old child deal with it when her father leaves and her mother is reduced to daily bouts of tears?

Alice is barely holding it together. Her husband just left her for a Hollywood Starlet. Her mother is disintegrating from Alzheimer's , her fairy-tale obsessed daughter is in trouble at school for yelling profanities, and the paparazzi is camped outside of her house. Will life ever get better for Alice? Will she ever find her "Prince Charming"?

Like I said, "cute". The characters are "real". Gabby is freaking adorable. Even through the pages I wanted to reach out & give her squishy hugs. Well written, fast read, somewhat fluffy, but somewhat real. A good read.

I think I saw your post on her newest release a few weeks ago which prompted me to pick up the two books by Chelsea Cain. I read them both last week while on vacation and LOVED them. Can't wait to get my hands on the newest. Wish she had more.

Love your blog.

Oh, Angie, I am SO glad you loved them like I did! There is so many ways she can go with her characters, that I suspect that we will be in for a long, fullfilling series.

Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
