Seven Steps To Happiness by Stella Newman - book review

Do you love Marian Keyes, Sophie Kinsella and Jill Mansell? If so, Stella Newman is for you! 

Is there such a thing as a formula for happiness?

If it's Netflix + 2 for 1 Malbec + the perfect toasted-cheese sandwich, Lenny Dublonsky has it covered. Even if she works for a tech company where her colleagues ride scooters round the office, and is in a relationship with a man who doesn't do relationships.

Lenny's friend Juliet never planned to be pregnant and married at nineteen, but since then she has been the perfect wife with the perfect family. Until her husband Matt drops the ultimate bombshell...

Lenny is determined to save the day. So when she's asked to test an app that enhances happiness, she puts scepticism aside and persuades Juliet they should give it a go.

Could it really be that happiness is only seven steps away?

A funny and moving novel of friendship, heartbreak, and the restorative power of melted cheese.

My Review

Seven Steps to Happiness is a fun and easy to read story following the journey of two friends - Lenny and Juliet - as they hit troubles in their lives and try to find a way to put the fun back in their lives and achieve their dreams.

Lenny is asked to roadtest a new app that promises happiness in seven easy steps, so when her best friend Juliet is extremely down in the dumps she decides that they both should try it out and see what effect it can have on both their lives - and the results aren't quite what they expected!

There are so many funny moments between the 2 friends that you really enjoy their friendship, and even during the darker times they seem to be able to find a little humour which puts a smile on your face as you are reading.

This isn't a sugar coated book where everything runs smoothly, and that just adds to the reality of certain situations and the foodie mentions are always an added bonus - can't imagine why I'm craving a toastie or two right now!!

This is my first Stella Newman book and won't be the last! Looking forward to reading more soon!
