Publisher's Summary

The new feel-good, funny serial from Sunday Times best seller Cathy Bramley about one woman's search for happiness....

I think flowers are sunshine for the soul.

Flowers have always made Fearne smile. She treasures the memories of her beloved grandmother's floristry and helping her to arrange beautiful blooms that brought such joy to their recipients. 

But ever since a family tragedy a year ago, Fearne has been searching for her own contentment. When a chance discovery inspires her to start a happiness list, it seems that Fearne might just have found her answer.... 

Sometimes the scariest path can be the most rewarding. So is Fearne ready to take the risk and step into the unknown? And what kind of happiness might she find if she does? 

My Kind of Happy was originally published as a four-part serial. This is the complete story in one package.

Wonderful

5 stars
This is such a lovely and inspiring story, and really just what the doctor ordered in these challenging times.
I love the fact that even though it’s a new story, we revisit the beloved characters from the Lemon Tree Cafe and the Evergreens.
Well narrated ( as always) by Colleen Prendergast.

Absolutely brilliant

Well done Kathy, another wonderful read.
So lovely to be back in the village of Barnaby, and catch up with characters from previous books.
Now I’m going to have a long wait for your next novel.
I do hope it’s based around Barnaby.
Thank you for a pure escapism.
Also well done to the narrative as always superbly read by Coleen Prendergast.

Fab story as ever from Cathy. Narrator ok.

Wonderful story as ever from Cathy Bramley featuring her trademark simple lives and complicated relationships. Loved the setting, she’s obviously done a lot of research. Really good book for somebody to read or gift, if they are suffering bereavement as there is a well handled side-theme.

Not sure why this narrator keeps being chosen for story set in Derbyshire as she has a slight Brummie accent. Therefore so do most of the characters. Some dialogue is great, but sometimes dialogue section sounds no different from the narrative. At worst, this narrator has a frustrating intonation that sounds like someone plodding downstairs, losing emphasis at the end of sentences making it hard to listen to in the car. Even when characters are excited, some of the dialogue comes across as humdrum. Misplaced emphasis on words in sentences is frequent, even , for instance, putting the emphasis on ‘new’ in New Zealand. She is adequate at best, I’m sure she’s a very nice person but it’s very frustrating to listen to these little idiosyncrasies as it takes me out of the story. Would love to hear a different narrator on future Cathy Bramley audiobooks.

Not my favourite...

...by this author and whilst I've always liked the reader's voice, I thought she was rather reading this one by numbers. Disappointing.

A very ‘happy’ read!

A lovely, light and thoroughly enjoyable audible book. Thumbs up for the experience made all the better by the author’s plot and the animated narrator. It has left me with the ‘feel good factor’ I’m always looking for!

Loved this from beginning to end

I absolutely loved this book, great story which gripped me from beginning to end. I loved the characters as the story evolved, and it was so nice to have some old favourites turn up on the book aswell it’s nice to see what they are up to, would recommend this book to everyone, cannot wait from the next Cathy Bramley book.
