"Oh my goodness, I loved, LOVED this book!!!
Five feet one and full of fizz, Jennifer Brown lights up the room. She has a gorgeous partner, a wicked best friend, and a boss who doesn’t mind that she’s the worst typist on the planet. She’s loyal, generous and irredeemably ditzy. Everyone loves Jennifer Brown. But can she learn to love herself?
When her world caves in, she needs every ounce of her steely core to step back from the abyss and take charge of her life, reinventing herself first as cook and housekeeper to a saucy sexagenarian, then as manager of a tumbledown country estate with sensitive secrets. Peopled by a battalion of hilarious characters from the caustic, cross-dressing confidant to the besotted ex-boyfriend with a barmy ex-wife, Jennifer Brown’s Journey is a heartwarming, thoughtful, often poignant portrait of the trials of life as a thirty-something woman. Jennifer Brown champions the importance of self-belief, and the value of a bucket-sized glass of wine in a tight spot. And, always in the background, there’s the quiet man with the warm eyes and the velvet vowels. What on earth is Jennifer Brown going to do about him?
ABOUT THE BOOK
The first in a series of three books, Jennifer Brown’s Journey is a story of female self-empowerment and the triumph of the human spirit in the face of challenges that most women will recognise. Lighthearted and poignant, the story gives readers a very real sense of a woman, initially rather ditzy, maturing into a redoubtable, self-possessed individual who faces her many challenges with developing aplomb.
"I absolutely loved this fantastically written, heart warming tale of the wonderful Jennifer Brown who following a heart breaking deceit sets off on a
new journey in life"
"Jennifer Brown's Journey was a complete delight from start to finish. I honestly read the entire story in one 3 hour sitting! Jennifer Brown is so
relatable and impossible not to like. It's so refreshing to have a female character with some real personality and I cannot wait to read the next two books in the series. A fantastic debut novel by Angie Langley. Totally brilliant"
"Wow! Just finished Jennifer Brown's Journey, what a brilliant read. I couldn't put it down (and there aren't many books I can say that about)!
A heartening insight into the trials of a young woman that will send your chuckle meter off the chart"
It made me laugh, think and cry with every chapter. A feel good book that every woman should read"
"This is so far my book of the Summer, full of fun, laughter, despair and a fantastic all round feel good easy read"
I absolutely loved this fantastically written, heart warming tale of the wonderful Jennifer Brown who following a heart breaking deceit sets off on a
new journey in life. You feel part of her story as if you are right there was her as she goes from one hilarious calamity to another but then you feel
her grow into a new confident woman who realises she can do anything she puts her mind to.

Writing Jennifer Brown’s Journey was a labour of love as most of the book is based on her true-life experiences, enhanced by a furtive imagination which takes over as humorous characters and situations are brought in to provide the chapters with the emotional balance. Many of these humorous elements are the result of everyday observations.
Jennifer Brown’s Journey is her first book, inspired by the highs and lows of a distant past that has given her the strength to tackle each day with a smile.
