The Book Group Will Kill Me

Kathleen MacMahon may kill me. Can't be helped -- her novel "This is How it Ends", is crammed with every possible weepy scenario. Motherless and recently unemployed Adeline loses her unborn baby and boyfriend, but she meets recently unemployed Bruno who visited his mother every week in the home before she died. They fall in love while Addie's father recovers from an accident that put both arms in plaster, and faces a court case that might see him struck from the medical register. Addie gets mysterious pains, eventually diagnosed (surprise!) as incurable illness. She dies, her father loses his case, even the rescue dog she adopted manages to drown itself.

Sure, I wanted to cry. But for completely different reasons.
