Five Steps to Happy by Ella Dove

Five Steps to Happy by Ella Dove

I would like to thank Tracy Fenton of Compulsive Readers, Trapeze Books and Ella Dove for the opportunity to read and review Five Steps to Happy.

What a book! Ella Dove is so talented.

The Back of the Book

On this occasion I am reading from a NetGalley ebook so I am afraid I do not have a photo of the back.

Life can change in a heartbeat…

When struggling actress Heidi has a life-changing accident aged 32, her world falls apart. Stuck in hospital and unable to walk, her only companion is Maud, the elderly lady in the bed next to hers. Heidi misses her flatmate, her life, her freedom – surely 32 is too young to be an amputee?

But when Maud’s aloof but attractive grandson Jack pays a visit to the ward, Heidi realises that her life isn’t over just because it’s different. It might not look like the life she dreamed of, but it’s the one she’s got – and there’s a lot she still wants to tick off her bucket list. With Jack at her side, will Heidi take the first step back to happiness? Or is there one more surprise still in store…?

My Thoughts

Five Steps to Happy although a fiction novel is based on the experience of the author Ella Dove. Because of this, the story of Heidi’s struggles feel so real. This book really makes you think.

An absolute gripper. Five Steps to Happy left me feeling gobsmacked and proud of how far Heidi had come. Her sheer determination is just so inspiring. 

Heidi has her moments but then it’s like a switch goes off and her life changes again in an instant. Her determination grabbed me with both hands. I felt myself cheering her on willing her to succeed.

To describe Five Steps to Happy as thought provoking is an understatement. Life changing is more like it. 

Five Steps to Happy is like a self help book, memoir and out of this world fiction novel all in one.

Seriously, do not miss out on this. 

Five Steps to Happy will be published on 11 July 2019 by Trapeze Books. Buy your copy here.
