The women in the latest Happiness Key novel are likable characters in life-changing situations, from unexpected pregnancy to arranged marriages. But the pace is slow and situations are often over-explained, and the way the main character’s boyfriend confides in her friends is difficult to believe.
Tracy Deloche rents five seaside cottages to female tenants who have become her closest friends. She is pregnant, but Marsh, the divorced man she is in a relationship with, doesn’t seem overly committed to the idea of starting a second family. The rest of the women also have relationship issues to confront with various family members. The five pull together to support and encourage one another. (MIRA, Jul., 512 pp., $14.95)
