EXES AND OHS
Genre: Mainstream, Chick lit
Chick lit meets farce in Kendrick's sophomore outing when Gwen, a child psychologist recently dumped at the altar, meets Alex. Everything goes smoothly until her newest client, Leo, turns out to be the son Alex never knew about and his mother, soap siren Harmony, decides that she and Alex need to reconcile.
Hilarity ensues as Gwen and Alex try
Kendrick juggles the multiple relationships with skill, piling catastrophe upon coincidence, but things never get out of hand and every character is distinctly developed. Gwen and Cesca are snarky, smart women while Harmony is a wicked parody of the self-obsessed star. It's laugh-out-loud funny in spots and a good read overall. (Mar., 303 pp., $13.00)
