Laugh out loud

Anyone who has ever written a book or even just wanted to, should listen to this. It manages to make you laugh out loud while inwardly cringing at the way it strips off the veneer of publishing and writing. Prepare to lose all your illusions about the 'gentlemanly' career of publishing, while all who have to engage writers as speakers, either at short meetings or longer writers conferences, should read it to find out what writers really feel about the treatment they get at some places.

I do hope that many more of Trisha Ashley's boooks will be published by Audible. They are ideal light listening.

Expect the unexpected from Trisha Ashley ...

Does Trisha Ashley read the reviews about her books posted by readers? Tina Devino, authoress and main character in Happy Endings does. So if you?re reading Trisha, this one was certainly different and I loved it!
The book is unusual in that it is written almost entirely without dialogue. It is a monologue by the main character, Tina Devino, interspersed with letters to and from either the clients of her literary review service or her friends and family. And although I think to describe the book as autobiographical may be going a little too far, I?m sure its content has been influenced by Trisha?s experiences in the book publishing world.
I felt that Rachel Atkins? portrayal of Tina?s voice and mannerisms greatly enhanced my enjoyment of the book.
So to anyone thinking of reading ?Happy Endings?, don?t expect a romantic male hero ? there isn?t one. But then Tina doesn?t want a traditional romantic male hero ? she really only wants Mondays! One thing this book had in spades was humour - it made me laugh! I particularly liked the string of pearls. And Tube man ? this is what happens when you create dreams and fantasies around a stranger!
A very enjoyable book!

disappointed

I was very disappointed with this book. I normally love Trisha Ashley, and although there were one or two bits that made me smile, overall I found it a bit boring. :(

OK. A bit more frivolous than some of her other books.

It was quite "sweet", & entertaining but some how lacked the depth of insight of some of the author's other chic lit. The narrator was good but talked too quickly in places. Overall it's difficult to say if others would find this a good read. Depends entirely what kind of story a reader is looking for. Definitely this is unabashed Chic Lit with little in-depth psychological 'pearls' that this writer usually delivers.

slightly disappointing

I absolutely love all of Trisha Ashley's books however this one was quite different. if you aren't a huge fan of hers, you may well like it as its a good story, just not what I expected. The heroine is not as likeable as her normal books and made it a bit more difficult to 'root for her' as I have with all the others I have read/listened to.
