How Lucky You Are

Kristyn Kusek Lewis. Grand Central/5 Spot, $13.99 trade paper (352p) ISBN 978-1-4555-0203-5
Lewis explores the consequences of accrued secrets and the growing pains of long-lived friendships in her strong chick lit debut. Waverly and Kate have been friends since they were 14 years old, and Amy joined the duo “as an easy third” shortly after college. Since then, they’ve been inseparable, never mind that their lives have taken very different directions: Waverly, the narrator, owns a little bakery and lives comfortably with her charming boyfriend, Larry; stay-at-home mom Amy is happily married to Mike, a family practice doctor; and socialite Kate and her politician husband, Brendan, live a charmed life in Washington, D.C. But despite their closeness, time has taken a toll on their friendships—relationship problems that would’ve once been fodder for late-night gossip have devolved into the realm of taboo topics. As the women navigate the uncomfortable emotional territory that the messiness of life has ushered them into, they must overcome their fears and open up to each other like they once did in order to save their friendship—and their relationships with the men they love. Agent: Katherine Fausset, Curtis Brown. (Sept.)
