Happily by Sophie Tanner

Here is the book blurb.

How far will you go for your Happily Ever After?

Chloe Usher’s had enough of being asked why she’s ‘still single’; people can’t seem to understand why she’s not freaking out about the slippery slope to spinsterhood. But, as far as Chloe’s concerned, life is sweet; she’s happy, she loves her job, her friends and her flat share next to Brighton beach. One summer evening, after being told that she will never know what love is until she has children, she decides to say ‘actually, I do!’ and announces to her friends that she’s going to marry herself. She’s not quite prepared for the huge reaction to her news on social media and finds herself thrust firmly into the public eye; suddenly she’s a spokesperson for every crazy cat lady out there. With the warm support of her colourful extended family, Chloe attempts to justify her self wedding and the events that unfold take her on a bumpy journey of self-discovery – making exciting new connections and settling old ghosts.

Well this is a story line that I have never come across before. Fairly near the beginning of the book, the main character Chloe decides to marry herself. She has the support of her friends and most of her family, although her dad thinks it is a crazy idea. Her news soon goes viral on social media and both TV and Woman’s Life magazine want a piece of her story. Everyone wants an invite to the wedding which she is holding at her uncle and aunt’s private beach in Devon, with her uncle doing the catering himself. However she gets very differing reactions from two of her ex-boyfriends, one negative and one positive. Chloe also ensures that the press give coverage to both the wild animal charity that she works for and to her uncle’s catering business. And not only is the wedding unusual, but the hen night is very different too.

Happily is available on Amazon, currently priced at 99p in Kindle format. I loved this book, especially as it is such an unusual unique storyline and highly recommend it. And I liked how all the other characters besides Chloe become so real for the reader.

Also I was interested and intrigued to find out that Sophie Tanner, the author has indeed married herself too, just like Chloe in the story.
