-- Previously published in 2008 as 'Happy Endings' --
The witty, weird and wonderful abound in this early romantic comedy by Sunday Times bestselling author Trisha Ashley.
Tina Devino makes more money teaching people to write than writing herself. A middling romance novelist who dreams of penning a bestseller, she’s increasingly forced to compete with younger, blonder debut authors for her publisher and agent’s attention.
Feeling forgotten, Tina realises the only way up is to take her career and destiny in hand and build her own happy ending; which is perfect because, for a romance writer, Tina isn’t the most traditional of women… Although she does see her long term partner lover friend, Sergei, once a week which is ‘quite enough, thank you very much’. But her uncomplicated love life might soon need some unravelling when a mysterious Tube Man, unwelcome ex-husband and a shadowy figure in a butterfly mask waltz into the picture.
Only Tina can work through the drama and claim the life she’s always wanted… but will she succeed?
Hilariously warm, quirky and feel-good, Trisha Ashley's writing is perfect for fans of romantic comedies by Milly Johnson and Jill Mansell.
Hilarious and engaging
I loved spending time with the delicious Tina Devino and the wonderful cast of friends, frenemies and lovers in Written from the Heart. The novel has tender moments and romantic ones too, but it's the humour, often wicked, that I love the most.
A fabulous novel, witty, warm-hearted and wise. Tina Devino is a brilliant comic creation whose words of wisdom should be heeded by anyone hoping to become a successful novelist.
All Marnie wants is somewhere to call home. When she finds an advertisement for a gardener in the village where her mother was born it feels like fate. Could a summer spent lovingly restoring a garden heal Marnie's broken heart?
