Life is about to change forever…

Heather is finally back on Hope Street after running from the memories for so long. She hasn’t bumped into many neighbours yet but with her upcoming wedding to plan there’s plenty to keep her busy!

Fran is still trying to get used to a life without her husband by her side. It’s hard enough raising two children on her own – she doesn’t have time to even think about dating…

Pamela is fed up with being taken for granted by her grown-up children and grumbling husband. She’s ready to shake things up a little, but will her family even notice?

So when the three women hear about a ‘happiness course’ starting on Hope Street, surely it’s the perfect opportunity to let their hair down, laugh with new friends and maybe even change their lives in ways they never expected…

Don’t miss The Happiness List, a delightfully uplifting story from bestselling author Annie Lyons, coming soon!

A Truly Lovely, Bright Read!  5 stars

 

Annie Lyons’ new novel does exactly what it says in the blurb .. it delights and uplifts!

Pamela, Fran and Heather each have their own crosses to bear; life is not perfect for any of them but they all try to keep their chins up and meet the challenges thrown in their paths each day. When a new course is set to run in the hall in Hope Street, they decide to support each other and find out what it’s all about. After all, a happiness course may be fun!

This is a truly lovely, bright read. The uncertainties of life faced by these three women aren’t in the least unusual – in fact, they’re fairly common. It’s easy to identify with the characters – many and varied, they are such a joy to meet! As with any good story, there are ups and downs and this author’s writing bubbles along with something new always happening and various intertwining threads keeping the reader’s attention. I’m happy to report that all the ends are neatly tied off by the final page, and I closed my kindle with a little sigh of satisfaction as well as a smile on my face. Definitely a feel-good read, and one I’m happy to recommend.

My thanks to publishers HQ Digital for approving my copy via NetGalley. This is my honest, original and unbiased review.

Meet the Author

 

91HMDzETR-L._SY200_Having worked in the worlds of book selling and publishing, Annie Lyons decided to have a go at book writing. Following a creative writing course, lots of reading and an extraordinary amount of coffee, she produced Not Quite Perfect, which went on to become a number one bestseller. Her second book The Secrets Between Sisters was nominated in the best eBook category at the 2014 Festival of Romance and Life or Something Like It was a top ten bestseller.
Her latest book, The Choir on Hope Street, is a story of power ballads, community, cake and hope. She tries to write stories which make people laugh and cry, although hopefully not at the same time. Annie lives in a shambolic money-pit of a house with her husband and two children plus a cat, who she pretends not to like. She enjoys channelling her inner Adele as part of her own beloved community choir and trying to grow cauliflower.
