Happy Any Day Now received 4 stars from Goodreads.

"Happy Any Day Now is a charming read for women of any age, especially those who have mothers, fathers, boyfriends, former lovers, or careers.  Judith Soo Jin Raphael is unique and also completely like your best friend, facing decisions and doubts with courage and lots of LOL humor.  I learned so much from reading this book, and had such fun!”  --Nancy Thayer, author of Summer Breeze and The Hot Flash Club



"Judith Raphael is half-Korean and half-Jewish, and full on fabulous!  Toby Deven's novel is warm, witty, and wonderful." --Wendy Wax, Author of While We Were Watching Downton Abbey

“If you’re looking for smart, upbeat fiction with snappy dialogue and a fun peek into ethnic traditions, Happy Any Day Now is perfect.  A lively read that offers an interesting behind-the-scenes look at a symphony orchestra and a mid-life heroine who is all grown up but still capable of being comically and poignantly bewildered by life.”  --Nancy Martin, author of Little Black Book of Murder
