In 2020, she was honoured with the Romantic Novelists’ Association’s Outstanding Achievement Award and is a fierce defender of romantic and commercial fiction. A writer who champions women and highlights the importance of friendship and community, Milly’s characters are celebrations of the strength of human spirit. She writes from the heart about the people and places she knows with her trademark wit and warmth.
The Happiest Ever After is her 21st novel, published on 15th February 2024 by Simon & Schuster.
Polly Potter seems to be taken for granted by everyone in her life – especially her terrible new boss Jeremy and her cheating partner, Chris. The only place where her life is working is in the novel she is writing in her Monday evening classes. There she can create a feistier, bolder, more successful version of herself, as the fictional Sabrina Anderson.
Resolved to make a change, Polly is counting down the days until she can take a leaf out of Sabrina’s book and finally move on – she just needs to get through Chris’s sister’s vow renewal first.
But as unexpected events unfold, Polly finds herself in a seaside hospital with no recollection of how she got there. The only things she is certain of; that she’s a successful business analyst, and that her name is Sabrina.
Struggling to remember anything about her life before, and mistakenly believing she is the fictional Sabrina, Polly finds comfort and support in a Good Samaritan Marielle, who offers her a home, and her son Teddy, who gives her a job at his Italian restaurant. Soon she discovers what family life should really be about.
But is it possible for Polly to forget the past and start over again? Will she get the life she’s always dreamed of? Or will her past life catch up with her in the end …?
