Overview

Everyone in town thinks Holly DeJong has handled her husband's death well, including her. Until the day she spots a cupcake display at Smiley's General Store and lets loose. Holly's husband is dead because he cheated on her. He didn't have just one Kitty Cupcake on the side; he had boxes of them!
Now everyone in town thinks she's lost it, except Holly. For the first time in months she feels as if she can handle anything, including her children, dating-minded family members and a certain deputy with more on his mind than the cupcake massacre. Just like the hula dancer on her husband's favorite lamp, Holly is learning that happiness comes from swaying with whatever possibilities life throws her way.

The character driven story line uses angst and humor to insure that readers understand that grief is customized to the needs of the surviving loved ones. Though action-free except for the nasty but realistic behavior of the kids, fans of powerful character studies will want to learn to hula alongside Holly and company.-------------------- Harriet Klausner
