A Year of Finding Happinessby Lisa Hobman


Poignant, heart-warming and gorgeously romantic, this is a love-story with pure, unadulterated happiness at its heart. A Year of Finding Happiness shows you that the little things in life can make you smile, even when you think you might never laugh again…

Happiness doesn’t factor on the deliciously rugged but utterly heartbroken Greg’s radar much these days. Only his beloved Labrador Angus seems to understand his search for a way to make sense of tragedy, until he meets new neighbour Mallory Westerman…

Instantly they know that the other understands how they feel, and over time, as romance blossoms, they dare to wonder if they might, one day, be truly happy again…

There are two sides to every story, and A Year of Finding Happiness is Greg's journey back from the darkest depths to happiness...


This is not a typical chick lit, despite the cover. For one, it is written from a male point of view, and two, the whole tone and feel of the book isn't as sweet as the cover would lead us to believe.

It is quite gritty and at times rather explicit, and the first thirty per cent or so deals with heartache, death, and betrayal. There is a great deal of emotion in this story and it was refreshing that it came from a man. However, I didn't gel with Greg at all, and I skipped over the quite explicit sex scenes.

That said, it is an uplifting read and the message of hope is undeniable.
