What if you could write your own perfect storyline...? The heartwarming, feelgood novel from the much-loved Sunday Times bestselling author, Milly Johnson.

'Gloriously funny, witty, wise and wonderful, this book is a total joy!’ Alexandra Potter ‘A delicious warm hug of a book’ Jill Mansell ‘Guaranteed to put a spring in your step – I loved it’ Jo Thomas 'Gorgeous, heartwarming and moving, The Happiest Ever After is so original and brilliantly written in the typically funny and clever Johnson style' Lucy Vine 'An escapist, uplifting read full of heart' Libby Page ‘Funny and brilliant and gorgeously warm, Milly Johnson always, always delivers’ Paige Toon 'Takes you on a classic transformative journey in the most wonderful and original way. What a joy!' Julietta Henderson Polly Potter is surviving, not thriving. She used to love her job – until her mentor died and her new boss decided to make her life hell. She used to love her partner Chris – until he cheated on her, and now she can’t forget. The only place where her life is working is on the pages of the novel she is writing – there she can create a feistier, bolder, more successful version of herself – as the ­fictional Sabrina Anderson.

But what if it was possible to start over again? To leave everything behind, forget all that went before, and live the life you’d always dreamed of? After a set of unforeseen circumstances, Polly ends up believing she really IS Sabrina, living at the heart of a noisy Italian family restaurant by the sea. Run by Teddy, the son of her new landlady Marielle, it’s a much-loved place, facing threat of closure as a rival restaurant moves in next door. Sabrina can’t remember her life as Polly, but she knows she is living a different life from the one she used to have.

But what if this new life could belong to her after all? ‘Reading a Milly Johnson book is like spending time with a best friend – you always end up feeling better about the world. Written with genuine warmth and heart, they’re an absolute treat’ Lucy Diamond ‘Milly Johnson always delivers an absolutely cracking read’ Katie Fforde ‘One of those novels that draws you in to its world and makes you wish you could be friends with Shay. A tantalising juicy tale full of twists and turns that kept me gripped. Warm, funny and moving. One to curl up with and devour’ Ruth Jones ‘The feeling you get when you read a Milly Johnson book should be bottled and made available on the NHS’ Debbie Johnson ‘Milly’s writing is like getting a big hug with just the right amount of bite underneath’ Jane Fallon
