A Matter of Happiness by Tori Whitaker

Two women, two different eras, but basically the same.

Both Violet and Melanie want to be independent women. 

Violet is Melanie's great, great, great aunt.

Upon her death, Violet leaves Melanie a car with a hidden journal inside.

Melanie learns a lot about her aunt from the journal and also about herself.  Were they actually similar in their thoughts and desires?

A MATTER OF HAPPINESS is a lovely, lovely read that takes us from the 1920's to 2018 as we see the similarities both women faced in their personal and professional lives in each time period.

You will fall in love with both Violet and Melanie, love their strengths, and cheer for the success in their endeavors.

Historical fiction fans, women's fiction fans, and fans of vintage cars will adore this book.

Marvelous research - do not miss!!  5/5
