I was looking forward to this book possibly being a book club book, but I pre-read it and I was very glad I did. The storyline was great and it was well written, which is why I was so sad that more than once they used a bad word, more than once. It was not necessary to the story, it did help to create a mood or feeling. It was poorly done. I had actually ordered extra books thinking this was an absolute book club book and I returned the others. If you're going to have a christian book, please DON'T use ANY form of curse words, there's no need, we get enough of that trash out in the world. So I cannot recommend this book :(

All my fave authors are women. Well, until I read this book, it was true. But, within the first two pages, this book captured my heart. Sophie is negative. Not "you probably will lose negative" but "I bring my umbrella with me everywhere because it just might rain". And you know misery just LOVES company. So Sophie has these "misfortune" cookies. Instead of telling you good things her cookies say stuff like "have patience. Rainy days will return" and "there are a lot of fishes in the sea. Too bad you are in a pond full of piranhas". Yeah. You get my point. So what happens to this female Scrooge when her old lover returns? Yes, the same lover who helped make Sophie believe that happiness doesn't exist. Of course she rejects even the thought of going on a date with him. But he won't be deterred. Since she's tired of his begging she comes up with a plan. If he places an add in the paper that reads "Happiness Wanted: Mail me your ideas" and gets 100 responses of things that really count she will agree to ONE date. Since he won't be deterred, he agrees. And with that the search for TRUE happiness begins. But will they find it? Maybe. And just maybe along the way they might find love...and secrets to something just as great.
You'll find a sweet read.
