    Lovely enjoyable feelgood read

    This is a easy feelgood read that gets you laughing and crying and then giving your nose a good blow at the end when everything gets sorted out! It follows the trials and tribulations of secondary school teacher Rory, her daughter Belle and mum Sheila, together with best friends Susie and Penny. With that many single women in the mix there's got to be romances a plenty as well as misunderstandings and inevitable heartbreak. And there's Rory's ramshackle house that she's taken on as a project as a central problem to be resolved. The author writes with a lovely light wit that pulls the narrative along and gets you invested in her characters and their lives, with subject matter that will resonate with many. It was a very enjoyable read, perfect for a lazy summer weekend.

    Enjoyable read

    One nice refreshment from the insta-love and hot romances... I simply enjoyed reading this one, and do I have to mention that I've finished it in one sitting?

    Very touching story.

    Rory does not believe in love. It is that simple. As far as she is concerned, "life is not a fairy tale." She is truly convinced that Prince Charming might not be there for everyone, at the very least, her. Anyway, what time does she have to think about love, something everyone is pushing at her? She just bought a fixer-upper for her and her sixteen-year-old daughter, Belle. She is a very busy teacher with sensitive students and a full load. She has been on her own for more years than she would like to admit, besides she likes it that way. Oh, about "life not being a fairytale?" What's up with the builder, John Prince? He ends up helping her with her house, help she is extremely reluctant to accept. Happily Never After has it all: sweet romance, family connectiveness and drama, fantastic characterization, best friends, real emotionalism and more. Rory was indeed the center of it all, and her character was written quite well. She struggled to be an independent woman, was a fantastic mother and daughter and an excellent teacher. Her relationship with Belle and her mother Sheila was handled quite well. Their relationship was marvelous. I so adored Rory's relationship with best friends Susie and Penny, although Susie was desperately seeking Mr. Right - for all three of them. Most of all, I loved the slow romance that burned between Rory and John. Would the two ever get it together? What about everyone else and their desire to be loved and needed? This is a story not to be missed if these questions are going to be answered properly. This is truly a cute story that was very touching on so many levels. It was a delightfully quick read. Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC to review in exchange for my honest opinion.

    HAPPILY NEVER AFTER

    This book is hilarious! I found myself laughing out loud. The story itself is about a single Mom a teacher, family, fixing up and buying your first house. Being single and looking for a partner was very relatable. The different ways to meet people totally true and funny. Some words were different than those used in America. However, it wasn't hard to discern the meaning in the context of the story. I really enjoyed the book!

    5 stars well deserved

    Everybody wants somebody to love and to love you back, but once you have been hurt real deep, you might see things differently. You want to depend only on yourself and keep your heart hidden behind a high wall. You can run, but you can not seem to hide when cupid aims his arrow ... I thought it was a wonderful and fluently written book. I could hardly put it down. It had some fun parts that made me smile, but some that tugged my heartstrings. There was nothing that I did not like. The mix of both Rory's personal and professional life resulted in a 5 star read.
