Summary

What if you could write your own perfect storyline...? The heartwarming, feelgood novel from the much-loved Sunday Times bestselling author, Milly Johnson.

'Gloriously funny, witty, wise and wonderful, this book is a total joy!’ Alexandra Potter
‘A delicious warm hug of a book’ Jill Mansell
‘Guaranteed to put a spring in your step – I loved it’ Jo Thomas
'
Gorgeous, heartwarming and moving, The Happiest Ever After is so original and brilliantly written in the typically funny and clever Johnson style' Lucy Vine
'An escapist, uplifting read full of heart' Libby Page
‘Funny and brilliant and gorgeously warm, Milly Johnson always, always delivers’ Paige Toon
'Takes you on a classic transformative journey in the most wonderful and original way. What a joy!' Julietta Henderson

Polly Potter is surviving, not thriving. She used to love her job – until her mentor died and her new boss decided to make her life hell. She used to love her partner Chris – until he cheated on her, and now she can’t forget. The only place where her life is working is on the pages of the novel she is writing – there she can create a feistier, bolder, more successful version of herself – as the ­fictional Sabrina Anderson.

But what if it was possible to start over again? To leave everything behind, forget all that went before, and live the life you’d always dreamed of?

After a set of unforeseen circumstances, Polly ends up believing she really IS Sabrina, living at the heart of a noisy Italian family restaurant by the sea. Run by Teddy, the son of her new landlady Marielle, it’s a much-loved place, facing threat of closure as a rival restaurant moves in next door. Sabrina can’t remember her life as Polly, but she knows she is living a different life from the one she used to have.

But what if this new life could belong to her after all?

Totally UnPutDownable!

Milly Johnson has outdone herself, if that were even possible following her previous books!

I’ve absolutely loved The Happiest Ever After from start to finish.

A story within a story, plot within a plot, the continual thread of seagulls and childhood warm memories running throughout.

The yearning for a new life, new adventures, sadness, blankness, getting screwed over at work, within family.

Being dealt blow after blow but emerging stronger than ever even with a different persona.

Inspiration and truly uplifting.

Pure escapism as we dive into the world of Polly aka Sabrina.

The spelling mistakes and apologies from the newspaper publishers are hilarious too.

Ten stars from me, I bought the hardback limited edition too so mi can share the book with my daughters.

What a total surprise. I was invested in Polly right from the beginning. An engaging story that had highs and lows. Will look for more of Milly Johnson’s books. A really lovely book to relax and listen too. Thank you 😊

Milly Johnson Never Disappoints

Once again Milly has lifted into her world of magnificent and impressive women. oh to have some other heroines in my world. The story was appropriately romantic, clever,well researched and complete. I loved it. I am a massive fan and am amazed at how she knocks it out of the park every time. I loved Polly Potter and her story was so in tune with everyone's lives. Well done Milly and please keep them coming.

Fabulous

Such a fabulous story
Following Polly in her life and the ups and downs she faced
The people in her life that were not always the best
Seeing how her life plummeted and then finding herself
As always a lot of laughs along the way
And figuring it all out
With an amazing ending
I loved it x

Beautiful story

I eagerly awaited the release of this audiobook and was not disappointed. Milly is one of my absolute favourite authors and this book is definitely in my top 5 of hers. A lovely story with wonderful characters and of course plenty of Daily Trumpet chuckles that made me laugh out loud on my commute! Thank you for a delightful listen.

Superb

I found Happiest ever after quite different to Milly's usual writing style, but in the best of ways though. Just love how Milly draws you right into her books to the point that you feel you're almost part of it as you're so engaged with the characters.
Terrific story, Daily Trumpet faux pa's absolutely hilarious.
If you haven't read any of Milly's books cheer your life right up by starting now.
