Okay, let's be honest here. If you're anything like me, you don't read a book like this because it's a lyrical masterpiece or because you expect to get a lot out of it. You read it for entertainment, and because you like things that wrap up in nice boxes with happy endings. You read it because it's fun. Like candy for the brain.

In this variety of brain candy, model Shey Lynne moves back to her small Texas town with her three sons after her husband announces that he is gay and wants a divorce. Other factors include a recently-deceased brother, an old flame, and (a little randomly) a hated housing development being built by another brother. I suppose that it's all a bit of a mess, but it's an enjoyable mess.

Of course, it all turns out great in the end. Shey Lynne gets her groove back, so to speak, and gets her man. Like you were expecting anything different. But the predictability is all part of the fun. Just sit back and enjoy the ride. Who doesn't love a conveniently perfect happy ending?
