To Have and to Hold

To Have

“…an author whom I believe is a star of the future. She is very astute and has her finger firmly on the modern marriage/relationship button.”

The Daily Mail

“This feels like grown-up chick-lit, dealing with substantial concepts, believable, fallible characters and shot through with emotionally intelligent analysis of three very different marriages…This is brilliantly written.”

“It’s a good story but I’ll confess to finding the parts which involved Phoebe the most compelling. She seemed very real and I’d love to hear more about how she gets on.”

For a debut novel, this was brilliant, and I really did enjoy every page, I didn’t want to put it down! Chandler is an exciting new voice in women’s fiction, and this debut makes me very excited for what else she has to come. I hope you enjoy Two For Joy as much as I did, it was fantastic!”

One More Page

” Chandler’s debut novel Two for Joy is released today and what an absolute treat it is! Charting the complicated love lives of best friends Toby and Julia, Two for Joy is an original, funny and heart warming story of true love, parenthood and just how complicated life can be. I love the way Helen Chandler writes and right from the start was drawn in by her down to earth, honest and funny narrative.”

Handwritten Girl

“Two For Joy’ is a wonderfully written debut from Helen. Written in a lovely laid back style that quickly absorbs the readers attention and provides witty, warmhearted reading, with regular giggles and loads of fun, the story explores the complexity of relationships, misunderstandings and drama of first babies and second chances.”
