You know those days when it’s miserable outside and you feel so deliciously warm, all snuggled up under your fluffy comforter? Reading a book by Jenny Colgan makes you feel warm and happy in the same way.

She draws you into a world where dreams can come true. Her characters are ordinary, good-hearted people who may struggle to change their lives, but ultimately they do and are stronger and happier than before.

Some of my favourites are:

Oh heck, just read them all — they’re all awesome!

Whenever I finish a book by Jenny Colgan, I sigh a contented and delighted sigh. It’s like wrapping yourself in a fuzzy blanket, enjoying a steaming cup of tea or hugging an old friend. It’s like coming home. Read her and she’ll make you believe in happy endings too.
