Unhappy Terry McMillan's latest seems depressing

I'm about 130 pages or so through Terry McMillan's "Getting to Happy". Is anyone else reading this? I loved "Waiting to Exhale", but this one just seems like depressing after depressing event takes place. I'm still intrigued, but geesh! Killing off characters whom I love kind of throws me off.

It became available in my library with Overdrive a couple of days ago. I clicked on it to put it in my cart, then read the description, and thought, "no, not right now." It just sounded like everybody's life had fallen apart.

And I usually love her, but I've been stuck around page 200 for the last several days. Usually I finish her in a day or so.
