  • A Truly Pleasurable Rad!

    A wonderful read, and from an author who obviously understands friendships and relationships! Danniella, Alison and Karen are three women with different lives and, to begin with, strangers to each other - but not for long. Danniella is new to Whitsborough Bay, and has some secret in her past that we're not privy to. Alison lives with her long term boyfriend who, frankly, treats her appallingly and it has affected her self-esteem. Karen and her fiancee are putting all their energy into their new fitness business, leaving romance on the back burner for the majority of the time. They all need a good friend, and that's exactly what they find when they meet up at bootcamp. Each of this women have very differing personalities and problems but, as we all know, a trouble shared is a trouble halved - getting together and striking up a friendship is just the beginning. This is an author who develops characters beautifully; each one is, in their own way, completely unique - as are their difficulties. The story is well structured, always with plenty going on without it being rushed - in fact, it unfolds at a really enjoyable pace. I found myself really invested in each of their lives and cheering them on, hoping they would get the ending I so wanted for all three! A truly lovely novel which was a pleasure to read, and has definitely brought Jessica Redland's work to my attention. I'm very happy to give this a full five stars.

  • A Very Uplifting Book

    The Secret To Happiness: An uplifting story of friendship and love by Jessica Redland 3.5 Stars The Secret to Happiness is the story of three women Karen, Alison and Danniella who become best friends through a bootcamp, run by Karen, the gym owner. I loved the three women. They were very supportive and helpful to each other as they went through their ordeals. Sometimes, all you need is good girlfriends to use as a sounding board. A common denominator for two of the ladies, was food. For Allison, when you felt miserable, eat. For Daniella the turmoil manifested itself in bulimia. A common denominator for Alison and Karen, was men. They treated them with no respect, took them for granted and lied. This if my first Jessica Redland book. She wrote a wonderful story, full of warmth and love rather than the aggressive way women can treat each other. The three women found support and encouragement in each other, learned to be more confident and developed the ability to love themselves. They were able to find happiness. A very uplifting book.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • What a gem

    What a great book. Karen, Danielle and Alison are three very different people but come together through the problems they all have. They become the best of friends by supporting each other through tough times. It is an inspirational story with characters that have their flaws but their honesty is so lifelike. It was great to follow each of the characters on their journey to find happiness. A lovely enjoyable read. This is my first Jessica Redland book but it won't be my last. Thank uou to net galley for giving me the opportunity to read this book
