About the Author

She doesn't know where the time went, but Liz Flaherty swears it was only last week that she married her boyfriend, just home from Vietnam. Duane wore a blue blazer and gray slacks with bell bottoms and she wore a blue dress, size five, that ended so far above her knees she's not sure it was legal. He had all his hair and hers was its natural color and they were going to have three children and live happily ever after. And so they did. Of course, there's more to it than that. The three children have all married and presented their parents with six grandchildren. Liz has worked at the post office since Ben Franklin was the postmaster-or at least it seems that way-and she's always written. She's one of those who can't not write. There are stories hidden in her computer keyboards, and she just has the most fun dragging them out word by word. When the words are being stubborn, Liz enjoys sewing and cooking-as long as someone else cleans up. She loves to walk the country roads where she lives, but if the wind is blowing or the temperature dips much below the 40-degree mark, she finds or invents an urgent reason to stay inside. She and Duane live in the same farmhouse at the end of lane where they've lived for thirty years. They are owned by the aforementioned grandchildren and two longhaired cats named Gabe and Jessy. If you want to contact Liz, she can be reached at and she'd love to hear from you.

“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!
