Suggestions for Happy Endings?

I don't do well with sad endings. But something possessed me to read Message in a Bottle. I know, dumb, no really dumb. I cried-not a few tears, not ladylike sobs, we're talking ugly faced crying.
If anyone has any suggestions of a good happy ending book, preferably a love story, please pass them along. I have a tendency to get way too involved in what I read and I think I won't be able to stop thinking about Message in a Bottle until I start something new.
Thanks in advance!

You need something to make you belly laugh.

Start with Janet Evanovich's "One for the Money" and continue thru the series.

I'm getting that by imagining the OP googling for "happy ending" and recoiling in horror.

Any of Jane Austen's books. A happy ending is guaranteed - for the heroine, anyway.

But I hate giving spoilers! If I tell you a book has a happy ending, I'll be telling you the ending... but if I don't tell you, you may never read the book.

Aaaah, my poor brain!

I know what you mean! I knew I could risk recommending Austen, but I didn't want to spoil anything more recent.

For sure, don't read any book about a dog.

Here are three suggestions that I enjoyed, all with happy endings.
The Good Companions by J. B. Priestley
Framley Parsonage by Anthony Trollope
Gaudy Night by Dorothy Sayers

Thanks! I read some reviews of Framley Parsonage on Amazon, sounds good. I think I'll give it a go.
