    One thought on “Happy Hour”

    1. For self-published novel, I'd say this one is better than average. I've decided that books get 50 pages to grab me, or they are gone. When I first picked this one up, I figured it for a 50 pager, based on the layout alone. I don't quite know what it is, but may self-published books have the same "look" if you just open to a random page and glance at them--a look books by major publishing houses don't have. This is a good story with interesting characters; and unlike some books about 40-something [...]

    2. I have to admit that I was reluctant when I first began this book. I don't care for wine, or horses for that matter, so I went in a bit biased, thinking that it wouldn't be my style. I couldn't have been more wrong.Happy Hour chronicles the lives of four friends, each dealing with different elements of family drama within their lives. The stories, while told separately through most of the novel, are woven seamlessly together through their weekly "Happy Hour" meetings. The author has done a wonde [...]

    3. Happy Hour is a story about four friends in the prime of their life who come together over wine and good food to bond and unload from life's adversities. It follows them through all their trials and their happy moments. It shows interaction between friends, family, dealing with extended families, and teenagers (both male and female), unexpected pregnancies, secrets and harbouring deep hurt and pain.The best part of this book is when I found myself in Kat. I felt like I was reading about myself w [...]

    4. Marriage, infidelity, divorce, death, children, food and winee most delicious components that make up Happy Hour by the lovely and talented Michele Scott. I absolutely love stories of women and friendships that come together naturally and the sisterhood bond we share because of the particular hardships women face. We are introduced to each of the women at the very start with each having a chapter briefly describing where they came fromd then she moves to present day.It was at times very sarcasti [...]

    5. A contemporary novel addressing modern day problems faced by women. These are serious problems that are dealt with through laughter, friendship and tears. Those who are fans of the 'Sex and the City' or 'Desperate Housewives' generation will enjoy this read. It is chick lit but has depth that separates it from the fluff stereotype. However, it isn't so heavy that it becomes depressing. There is a perfect mix of humor and realism that many readers will relate to. If you can't relate to issues or [...]

    6. Good read, thoroughly enjoyed!I really enjoyed this book. I'm a sucker for books about women that deal with real life situations and how they handle them. I could see a little of myself in each character and although I haven't experienced all that they've gone through, I could sympathize with each of these women. Maybe there's a sequel in the works

    7. A heartwarming book about four friends who meet monthly for wine and friendship. Chapters are written around each character.

    9. 3.5/4 Reviewed for BookPleasuresWhat’s better than good food and great wine? The answer is “Friendship, good food and great wine.” Happy Hour is a novel about just that. Four women with careers and messy lives meet every Sunday in their home of Napa Valley for fun, fellowship and of course good food and great wine. Through it all the women discover that sometimes all you need is friendship. Friendship can be the best prescription for happy through the hard times and the good. Here’s a li [...]

    10. It seems that the last few books I have read have been about women and friendships. So, far all of them have been enjoyable reads and this one didn't disappoint either. Even though this could be considered a "light" or "beach read", the topics covered in the story are not light. Each of the women in the story have a crisis going on in their life and must find a way to overcome it. Some of the situations were predictable, but there was just enough "surprise factor" to keep the reader interested. [...]

    11. Happy Hour is just one of those great novels that come along that have you up late turning the pages. A group of women who gather together to share friendship, ups and downs of life, laughter and tears.There is Jamie, a woman who was living the dream until her husband's cancer came back. Now, she's the editor-in-chief at a wine lover's magazine, raising her daughter on her own, as well as caring for her elderly mother-in-law.Danielle, whose husband divorces her after twenty years of marriage. Sh [...]

    12. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. I think I suffer from some misconception that the "free" books are not always the highest caliber of writing or story. I can honestly say that I've been proven wrong! The author wrote a very readable story with a great plot, depth, and characters that you could really identify with and root for during their tough moments in life. I was lucky to have been able to read and discuss this with a group of women who are just as varied as the f [...]

    13. A story about Four friends working in Napa Valley, Sundays are for fellowship, good food and wine. Jamie is editor-in-chief at "Wine Lover's Magazine," and a single mother. Before her husband died, she lived a fairy tale life. Guilt from his death keeps her from moving forward. Kat is a sommelier, and co-owner of a restaurant with her chef husband Christian. Although deeply in love they deal with a myriad of issues, including ex-spouses, Kat's teenage sons and her new age mother Venus. Danielle [...]

    15. Happy Hour is a story of four friends and what each of them goes through and how their friendship helps them through tragedy, heartbreak, divorce and coming out on the other side.Four women that are vastly different, yet share a common interest in wines in some fashion. One makes it, one writes about it, one is an expert on what it goes with and one paints works of art about itThe only thing that kept this story from getting a five star is there are certain parts that drag some and get a bit bor [...]

    16. Free kindle read. I was excited about reading a story about 4 women in Napa that are each uniquely involved in the wine industry but I ended up having a hard time getting into the story. Each chapter focused on a different woman, rotating throughout the book. The women were middle aged, all going through their own crisis - divorce, caring for an ailing mother-in-law, an un-wedded pregnant daughter, etc. I couldn't relate to the story at all but it was fine I envied the bond that they had. Then t [...]

    17. The women of Happy Hour are an eclectic group. Their lives intersect in numerous ways and their friendships survive many trials of adversity. Through it all, they share their stories, their joys and pains, their disappointments and loves. I loved the relationships these women shared. I wanted to join their little group, and by the end of the book, I felt that I had. I consider a book a good read when I don’t want to leave the characters behind after turning the last page. That was certainly th [...]

    18. The last of my Summer 2010 Challenges was to read a book with an alcoholic beverage on the cover. It was harder to find than you think at least to find one I wanted to read.I stumbled upon this little gem, and like finding a great bottle wine that well balanced and a joy to the palate for an amazing low prize ($2.99/Kindle) I am so happy to share this with my friends.Four women living in Napa with real grown up problems find strength and frustration with each other as they move forward in their [...]

    19. I won this book from GoodReads! :) It was a quick (I read it in 3 days) and enjoyable read. The story follows 4 friends and the ups and downs of their lives. In parts, the story was a little predictable and with a few of the love matches, I had to close the book and say, "Come on, Really?? That quick" but I over all I liked it. I will pass this book on to my friends. I enjoyed the camaraderie of the women and it often made me think of my girlfriends and the bond that we have. :) With this book, [...]

    20. I really enjoyed getting to know Kat, Jamie, Danielle, and Alyssa in this book. The common denominator that brought these women together was wine. They would get together every other Sunday to share wine, a meal, and help each other through the ups and downs of their every day lives. The things they were going through are things we all may have to deal with at one time or another, that's why this story felt so true to life. I could picture myself being friends with these women and to me that is [...]

    21. I found this book to be excellently crafted. It is so much more than a Women's Literature novel. The woven tapestry of the four lives of the characters make you feel you are the fifth friend. It is a story about life, hopes, dreams, despair, and love. Then as a stellar bonus, you get outstanding recipes and wine pairings. A book club guide is included and I can see why this book should be selected as a featured read.The sad thing is that Men might give it a pass because the characters are women. [...]

    22. I won my copy of Happy Hour from a giveaway. Truly a heartwarming story of 4 women, friendship, and life's trials. I loved reading each woman's story and how they dealt with challenges in their lives. However, the Wine Lover's Magazine pieces written by Jamie seemed like an afterthought and didn't seem to support the rest of the story. Also, based on the title and description given of the book, I'm not sure there was enough emphasis on the actual happy hours to call the book Happy Hour. What I [...]

    23. This book took me a while to get into it. I almost gave up on it a few times but didn't want toI'm glad I didn't because I love how everything ended up. I think my problem in the beginning was keeping everyone straight. Having 4 main characters was a hard thing for me to grasp and it wasn't until they became more intertwined did I feel like the book moved in the right direction for me. I ended up really liking the characters and the stories all ended in a beautiful way. ALl in all I'd say it was [...]

    24. Happy Hour is about a small group of women who meet once a month for a dinner and wine date to catch up on each other's lives. I enjoyed the book because the women are real and relatable. They are dealing with problems in their lives that many middle-aged women in this day and age go through. I almost didn't want to read this book because the cover is hideous but I'm so glad that I opened it to the first page and dove in. The read was so worth it!

    25. This book was super easy and quick to read. The strong friendships between these four women are amazing and awesome and I can only hope that years from now I can look back at the friendships I've had the ones I will have and hope we will be that united. It reminds me of my mother and her "Girls". Bestfriends since childhood, they've gotten married, had children, divorces, death, love, ect and still these women get together once a month and I think will continue to do so until they're dead.

    26. Happy Hour was an inspiring book that looks into the lives of a group of women. Through all of life's ups and downs, the women get together, share, and help each other through. This look into the women's psyche shows that through it all, with the help of some good friends, you can endure anything that life throws at you. My book club highly recommends this book and would love to read a follow up, if Michele Scott writes one, looking into the women's lives further.

    27. I worked on this book. Though not my usually choice for recreational reading, I was lucky have the opportunity to pick this up. The characters are fresh and diverse, giving the reader a wide range of protagonists to relate to. The topics are fun, but the plot does deal with serious issues regarding relationships, life, and love, without getting too heavy. It is a fun read for anyone who enjoys women's fiction.

    28. For anyone who has a close set of girlfriends, this is a no-brainer read. It will remind you why you love them. I adored each of the 4 main characters, flaws and all. And I appreciated that they were more mature and had LIVED life and were survivors. Throw in the ties to wine and food and you'll be left with a satisfied smile on your face by the end.

    29. At first I was not sure what to expect from this book, as I am not a big fan of chick lit, but I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. It revolves around friendship, going through tribulations, tragedies, and more. Basically what is better than sharing friendship over a good food and great wine Was a pleasure to read.

    30. I liked the characters and the way they all came from different backgrounds, and yet cared for each other in such loving ways. I felt it dragged a lot, and the points of view all sounded the same instead of being from 5 different distinct characters. There just wasn't enough variety in the syntax to make that believable.
