Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Written from the Heart by Trisha Ashley, read by Rachel Atkins.

Previously published in 2008 as Happy Endings.

The witty, weird and wonderful abound in this early romantic comedy by Sunday Times best-selling author Trisha Ashley.

Tina Devino makes more money teaching people to write than writing herself. A middling romance novelist who dreams of penning a best seller, she’s increasingly forced to compete with younger, blonder debut authors for her publisher and agent’s attention. 

Feeling forgotten, Tina realises the only way up is to take her career and destiny in hand and build her own happy ending - which is perfect because, for a romance writer, Tina isn’t the most traditional of women.... Although she does see her long-term partner lover friend, Sergei, once a week, which is ‘quite enough, thank you very much’. But her uncomplicated love life might soon need some unravelling when a mysterious Tube Man, an unwelcome ex-husband and a shadowy figure in a butterfly mask waltz into the picture. 

Only Tina can work through the drama and claim the life she’s always wanted...but will she succeed?  

Hilariously warm, quirky and feel-good, Trisha Ashley's writing is perfect for fans of romantic comedies by Milly Johnson and Jill Mansell.

Very disappointed

As a long time fan of Trisha Ashley I found this to be an extremely poor book. The story didn’t move along and could have been completed within the first 10 pages. I am also baffled by the hilarity which some reviews site mentioned and the humour running through it. I must however congratulate the narrator for doing a good job trying to make this something bearable.

Not up to the mark

OMG what a lot of tosh! Can’t believe this is the same author of some fantastic books. Quickly got tired of this book and gave up on it

Lost for words

I think Trisha Ashley might have been lost for words writing this book. It ends in the middle of the story.
I love her books and read several - a chick lit junkie - but this one failed to please.
The story of a writer is great, I love little letters to writers at the beginning of each chapter, the book is great to read (listen) but it just does not end.

I just did not like it

I found this Audiobook a hard time following it. Performer was hard to understand some time. Just did not like it.
