Book Description

When her boyfriend of three months, Tad Showers, proposes, twenty-six-year-old April thinks that everything in her life is finally falling into place.

Between her flaky, tree-hugging mother and her she-devil boss, marriage seems like the place she'll find love and security. Tad's exactly the kind of man April wants: smart, ambitious and wildly romantic. But soon after they're married, the honeymoon ends. Tad's crazy, extravagant gestures are starting to look less romantic and more…well, just plain crazy.

Is it normal for her husband to never mention his family, rack up secret credit card debt and get less sleep than your average insomniac? Are you still supposed to stand by your man, even if it turns out he isn't who you thought he was?

When she promised "for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health," this isn't what she pictured. But sometimes you don't get the life you imagined. And sometimes you have to figure out how to write your own happy ending.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than I expected! 22 Aug. 2007
By JGC - Published on
It's always nice when you find a book that is better than you expect it to be. I had wavered back and forth for months over whether I wanted to read this book. While I sounded like a great character study, I still wasn't sure.

I think many readers will have the same response to some of April's early decisions as I did, namely, why would you marry someone you hardly knew? After agreeing to marry Tad, April quickly looses control of her life because she consistently cedes her decision-making powers to Tad. It becomes clear even before their marriage that they really don't know each other, and that Tad is over-the-top.

However, once they are married, April's reactions begin to make more sense to me. She struggles with how to handle the relationship as Tad's actions and reactions spiral out of control. Particularly, now that they are married, April has to figure out how to deal with a man that she'd walk away from if she were only dating him.

It is interesting watching April's character grow and develop throughout the book, and I think Davis ended the book in a way that all readers will find satisfying.

4.0 out of 5 stars deep character study 6 Nov. 2006
By Harriet Klausner - Published on
While the stars twinkle above the Golden Gate Bridge, Tad Showers tells April Silverperson that he loves her and wants to marry her though they are only dating for three months. April reciprocates his feelings and has waited two decades to change her last name as no one should be called Silverperson, but to become April Showers is a cruel joke of fate. Still she accepts as she feels safe and protected when she is with Tad.

Nothing goes right with the wedding that she thought would be a small personal affair without her mother attending for some enigmatic reason that only mom understands; instead half of the city shows up for the nuptials. At Dawson where she works, her boss insists that she needs no time off for a wedding, honeymoon, or the rainbow test. Worse, April finds she prefers spending time with musician Jeremiah Ramano than with Tad. Then there is mom messing up again. However, the final straw is Tad who lied about his childhood, has bipolar disorder that is controllable when he takes his medication, and has other sociopath issues that leave April frightened and worried instead of safe and contented.

SO MUCH FOR MY HAPPY ENDING is a deep character study that is told from the perspective of a beleaguered April who struggles to cope with her bipolar disorder husband especially as his lies and his extreme behavior swings surface at a time she is attracted to someone else. The story line is driven by April, a wonderful protagonist, who provides a deep a look inside a person's soul. Kyra Davis provides her audience with a powerful insight into living with someone suffering with a mental disorder though Tad assists her in making her choice too easy at the end.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4 stars 3 Nov. 2006
By AK - Published on
April Silverperson is thrilled when Tad Showers proposes, even though it will make her name sound like a joke. He seems too good to be true, and it takes no longer than the honeymoon for her to realize he is. Tad's life is a lie, he's financially irresponsible on a criminal level, and emotionally unstable. April feels her life going down the drain and has to make tough choices to keep from imploding with the stranger she married.

**** If I had to sum up this book in one word, intense would be the one chosen. Gritty realism is lightened just enough by touches of humor. Though I have no way of knowing how true to life the portrayals are, it feels one hundred percent accurrate. This is not a light or fun read, but it is profound. ****

5.0 out of 5 stars Scary, funny, and uplifting 8 Nov. 2006
By Maryasha - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It takes talent to make something scary, funny, and uplifting all at the same time, but Kyra Davis manages to do just that in her newest book, So Much For My Happy Ending. This is definitely not a "just for fun" Sophie Katz mystery. I know quite a bit about Bi-polar illness and Kyra manages to capture that condition and the confusion and distress of those whose loved ones are afflicted with poignancy and compassion. At the same time she keeps a lightness of spirit and her heroine, April, has a sassy strength that is delightful. The supporting cast is quirky and fun and essential to the movement of the story. In Kyra's books no one is ever an island. I truly enjoyed Kyra's first two books, but this one has a lot more meat. It took me on a bit of a harrowing ride, but it was tempered with humor and a strong life force. It was a satisfying read all around.

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice surprise! 6 Dec. 2006
By Amazon Customer - Published on
I expected a light read with maybe a bit of intrigue, and was pleased to find so much more. Kyra Davis did an EXCELLENT job writing a story that is both accessible and provocative. This was both a romance and a story about a woman who needed to save herself. I empathized with April Silverperson, it was easy to see how she fell in love with someone who could be so charming and romantic.

I also thought that the story was very realistic. I have been emotionally close to individuals with bi-polar disorder, and I thought that April's experiences with Tad's behavior, and her reactions, were very realistic. They were right on point for a kind, caring person who didn't really know what was going on with her fiance/husband. I think this is KD's best novel yet. Not too serious to read over the weekend, and not so light as to be passed off as a fluffy romance. Great balance, and my kind of novel.
