The Happy Endings Book Club - by Jane Tara

My own copy
Original Cover

The blurb:

This Christmas, the women of the Happy Endings Book Club are about to uncover a world of love and magic as they discover how to have their own happy ending or beginning, as they’re often the same thing.

Once a month, seven very different women come together to discuss books. They all love a happy ending, but have lost sight of how to get their own. Paige misses glimpsing the magic in the world. Sadie doesn’t see the beauty inside people. Amanda wonders what she ever saw in her ex husband. Tilda literally can’t see herself. Michi can’t bear looking at her family, while Clementine is blind to what’s right in front of her. And Eva looks for romance in all the wrong places.

But things are about to change …

Meet the women of the Happy Endings Book Club as they celebrate Christmas, and themselves, in London, Paris, Vienna, New York, Sydney and in love.

My Opinion:

*Book provided by Momentum Books on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

The blurb of this story sounded really interesting to me, but unfortunately I didn't really enjoy it and it was hard finding connection to it.

All the female characters were really likeable, but the thing I didn't like in the style of the book was that as soon as I got to enjoy a charachter's story, it changed to another character.

I loved reading Michi's story and the connection and chemistry between her and Jake was undeniable from the start. their story was exciting and fun to read, would have loved to read more about them as a couple and their future.

Every girl and woman had her special story and I liked them all, the were all so touching and unique. A pity though that we didn't get to hear more about each and every one of them.

The idea of a happy endings book clubs great and I loved that all these different women got together to share their love of books and they became real friends as well. I admired their deep understanding for each and how they were there when they were needed. The emotinal side of the characters was desribed really well.

All in all, it was an okay book, but not really my cup of coffee. There very some enjoyable pits and pieces though and the novel is based on a lovely idea.
