On Tour with Prism Book Tours
The fine line between BFF and happily-ever-after…
Tucker Llewellyn and Libby Worth—strictly platonic!—realize they’re each at a crossroads.
Tucker is successful, but he wants a wife and kids: the whole package. Libby knows that small-town life has her set in her ways; the tearoom owner needs to get out more.
So they form a pact: Libby will play matchmaker and Tucker will lead her on the adventure she desperately needs.
But the electricity Libby feels when they shake on it should be a warning sign. Soon the matchmaking mishaps pile up, and a personal crisis tests Libby’s limits. Will Tucker be there for her as a best friend…or something more?

“She’d never fallen in love with her best friend before.”
As someone who did fall in love with my best friend, I always have a soft spot for the friends-who-fall-in-love trope in romance novels. Liz Flaherty’s The Happiness Pact does this trope really well.
Tucker and Libby have been friends since they were born twenty-seven minutes apart. They’ve walked with each other through great tragedies and have a great sense of humor together. Their camaraderie is easy, their care for each other smile-inducing. Tucker is the kind of guy you just want to envelop you in a big hug because a) he seems very huggable and b) he has that kind of compassionate personality that you want to wrap up in. I could very much relate to Libby’s depression/anxiety disorder, and her personality is so warm and friendly.
The two of them make a great team, and their adventures together make for some great scenes. Especially because, in spite of Tucker’s attempts at planning, they rarely go as planned. But that made this aspect of the plot even more interesting. AND we got to meet some other great people along the way.
Speaking of other people – I’m very intrigued by this missing ‘Cass’ character. Can I go ahead and put in my order for a story about her? Pretty please 😀
Bottom Line: The Happiness Pact by Liz Flaherty is romantic and swoony and sassy and sweet. Tucker and Libby may not think they have any chemistry, but they do! I loved their shared moments, their shared memories, and their shared kisses 😀 A great read with a great message!

My Rating: 4 stars / Love it!
KissingBook Level: 3 / May forget to breathe on occasion
Liz Flaherty was a little nervous about retiring from her day job, but making quilts, more family time, traveling at the mere mention of “why don’t we go…” and becoming a Harlequin Heartwarming author have made the past years more fun and exciting than she could ever have imagined.
