Title: In Pursuit of Happiness
Author: Freya Kennedy
Genre: Romantic Comedy
My Rating: 5 out of 5
The world is waiting…but just outside of your comfort zone.
Jo Campbell is perfectly content in a perfectly structured life. Nothing ever changes in Jo’s life, and she likes it that way. Or at least, she tells herself she does.
Most of the time, she manages to push down the tiny voice that tells her to chase her dream and maybe, just maybe, open her battered and bruised heart up to love.
But to chase her dreams she needs to take chances that are way out of her comfort zone and learn to not put other people’s happiness above her own. Most of all she has to learn to trust her heart, which may just be the biggest challenge of all.
Having read and really loved The Hopes and Dreams of Libby Quinn, it is so exciting to see the character of Libby making an appearance again in this story. In Pursuit of Happiness follows the journey of Jo Campbell. Good friends with Libby and part-owner of The Ivy Inn – the pub she runs alongside her foster brother Noah. Jo has written a book, and although she dreams of being a published author, she doesn’t believe in herself and her abilities to ever fullfill her dream.
Jo realises nothing will change, unless she takes a chance. Showing her story to friend, and bookshop owner, Libby is such a huge step forward for Jo. Without giving too much away, this risk that Jo takes, turns out to be one of the very best decisions she could have ever made.
In Pursuit of Happiness is such a lovely heartwarming story. Through Jo’s eyes, we see how you should never give up on a dream, take chances and risks and find exactly what it is in life that makes you happy. I loved this book and can recommend it to anyone looking for a good and heartwarming story.
