Publisher's Summary

An enchanting novel about fate, second chances, and hope, lost and found, by the Amazon Charts bestselling author of The Last of the Moon Girls.

Soline Roussel is well schooled in the business of happy endings. For generations her family has kept an exclusive bridal salon in Paris, where magic is worked with needle and thread. It’s said that the bride who wears a Roussel gown is guaranteed a lifetime of joy. But devastating losses during World War II leave Soline’s world and heart in ruins and her faith in love shaken. She boxes up her memories, stowing them away, along with her broken dreams, determined to forget.

Decades later, while coping with her own tragic loss, aspiring gallery owner Rory Grant leases Soline’s old property and discovers a box containing letters and a vintage wedding dress, never worn. When Rory returns the mementos, an unlikely friendship develops, and eerie parallels in Rory’s and Soline’s lives begin to surface. It’s clear that they were destined to meet - and that Rory may hold the key to righting a forty-year wrong and opening the door to shared healing and, perhaps, a little magic.

What the critics say

“Historically sound with a thread of supernatural intrigue, this exploration of shared experiences, learned adaptations, and the power of trust is a book that fans of Catherine Ryan Hyde, Erica Bauermeister, and Lucinda Riley will fall in love with.” (Booklist)

“This intriguing novel is magically woven together with sorrow, surprises, and happiness, just like the wedding gowns of ‘The Dress Witch’.” (Historical Novel Society) 

“Davis’s tale of love and loss, expertly woven around the lives of two women who have nothing - and yet everything - in common, inspires hope that our own happy endings might be biding their time, ready to show up when and where we least expect them. The Keeper of Happy Endings is a perfect blending of romance and mystery with a sprinkling of magic - heartwarming and satisfying. Don’t miss it!” (Kerry Anne King, best-selling author of Whisper Me This and Everything You Are

French accent too strong

This could be a good book if not because of the accent of the two French narrators. I could hardly understand what Soline said (both the young and old versions of Soline) because of their strong French accent.

A Happy Ending...

The story was interesting but a little predictable. The audio was a little disappointing for a few of the end chapters the main characters voice sounded like the sisters voice.

Wonderful book

At first I had difficulty listening to the French accent and the voice of the older Soline and as I got drawn into the story that disappeared. What a sweet moving story - I loved the change of voices, the story from each characters perspective. I guessed something of the connection between the characters early on however it unfolded beautifully. Well done Barbara Davis. I’m looking to see what else you’ve written…

Thoroughly enjoyed. Would highly recommend!

Robin Siegerman and Hope Newhouse brought the story to life. I was recommended this audiobook and couldn’t stop listening. I had a solo 20 hour drive and was so thankful to have such a captivating book to listen to on my journey. I would highly recommend.
