Let me start off by saying this is the ultimate 'Feel Good' book. It is a series of 5 short stories with 'Happy Endings' as its main theme. In each story the protagonist has some sort of hurdle to overcome but then by the end there is a happy ending.
I loved it. Each story was well thought out, never descending into either saccharine sweetness or melancholy. I would most definitely like to see more from this author. As a first novel it shows tremendous promise.
