Life, Libby and the Pursuit of Happiness is Hope Lyda’s third foray into chick lit. Libby is thirty and trying to get a handle on her life. Her job isn’t going anywhere. And it’s actually headed backwards, but she’s not sure she can change it. Her love life non-existent. Her faith stagnant and searching.
Just when she thinks things can’t get worse, she meets her new boss, starts taking calls from her crazy ex-boss, and has to hide a huge secret from her best friends. The kind of secret that could help her best friend.
The stabilizing factor in Libby’s life is an aunt who lives thousands of miles away in Eastern Europe. Via email, her aunt directs her to a book by Brother Lawrence. The principles in that book begin to give Libby guidance as she seeks a balance and happiness.
The book was an enjoyable vacation read. Libby reacts in believable ways to the situations life throws at her. If you’re looking for a fun read, try this one out.
