Book Review – The Secret to Happiness by Jessica Redland @JessicaRedland @BoldwoodBooks #BookReview #BlogTour #contemporary

Many thanks to publisher Boldwood Books for my spot on this Blog Tour.

Jessica Redland has done it again, written a book of emotions in a superlative manner which had me smiling with a hint of tears glinting in my eyes. The emotions this book evoked showed me why I adore this author.

This story was the perfect soothing balm for the weary soul when life got overwhelming. Every word written by Jessica had the power to heal me from the inside out. The story bespoke of hope and joy amidst pain and heartbreak and laid the spotlight firmly on strength in friendships.

3 women, strangers in the beginning with insurmountable problems in their life, slowly gravitated toward each other in the boot camp and found support in each other. Nary a bond has ever been formed so strong in a book. Secrets and emotions brought the quickening of the pace and gave it a delicious twist. Dark days with some difficult decisions found its place in my heart as I too have faced them.

The characters felt real, as if I knew them and they knew me. The emotions felt honest as if they were written with those in my heart. Inspiring and heart-warming were the two words that came to me as I reached the last page in this oh so absolutely delightful book.

I can honestly say

I loved the book and it loved me back, more than I could have ever hoped.

I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

All my reviews can be read here

She is the author of nine novels including Searching for Steven which are all set around the fictional location of Whitsborough Bay. Inspired by her hometown of Scarborough she writes uplifting women’s fiction which has garnered many devoted fans.






Danniella is running from her past, so when she arrives at the beautiful seaside resort of Whitsborough Bay, the last thing on her mind is making friends. After all, they might find out her secrets… Alison is fun, caring and doesn’t take herself too seriously. But beneath the front, she is a lost soul, stuck in a terrible relationship, with body confidence issues and no family to support her. All she really needs is a friend. Karen’s romance has taken a back seat to her fitness business. But she doesn’t want to give up on love quite yet. If only those mysterious texts would stop coming through… When the women meet at their local bootcamp, a deep friendship blossoms. And soon they realise that the secret to happiness is where they least expected to find it…
