Lovereading view...

An ex-publishing insider, she has been described as ‘Rosamunde Pilcher rebooted – in the best possible way’ and her stories are modern, absorbing and compelling. Not sure how much of this story is autobiographical but it charts the ups and downs, personally and professionally, of Eleanor Bee – who has always loved books… (a girl after our own heart)

If you like Harriet Evans you might also like to read books by Chris Manby, Jane Green and David Nicholls.

Synopsis

Happily Ever After by Harriet Evans

At twenty-two, Eleanor Bee is sure about three things: she wants to move to London and become a literary superstar, she wants to be able to afford to buy a coffee and croissant every morning, and she doesn't believe in happy endings. She saw what divorce did to her parents, especially her mum: happily ever after's fine on the last page of a book, but it just doesn't happen in real life. Elle moves to London. She gets a job at Bluebird Books, a charmingly old-fashioned publishers. She falls out of pubs, wears too-short skirts, makes lots of mistakes and feels like she's learning nothing and everything at the same time. And then, out of the blue, she falls in love, and that's when she realises just how much growing up she has to do! Ten years on, and Elle's life has changed in ways she could never have predicted. Because no matter where you go and how much you try to run away, the past has a funny way of catching up with you, and Happily Ever After comes in all shapes and sizes!
