Book recommendations- good endings/amusing story lines?

I'm putting together a care package for a friend that's going to be in the hospital for several weeks. She has almost nothing to do, and has requested some books. Her only requirement is that they be cheerful or funny.

Can you recommend any book, regardless of genre, that has a really nice feel-good ending, or is perhaps really amusing? She's in her 40s, so nothing too childish or teen-boppery. I was trying to think of something akin to the First Wives Club, but haven't had any luck.

Your help is really appreciated. :)
