Her latest is “Just Breathe” (Mira, $24.95, 400 pages), an emotional roller coaster centered on a cartoonist whose husband betrays her. Undaunted, she leaves him and returns to her California hometown, where new love blossoms.

I just subscribed to Shelf Awareness, a free newsletter for anyone interested in books. No idea what took me so long. Thanks to this issue alone, I ordered American Wife and The Book of Calamities.
