Cure For The Common Breakup - Review

About the book:
Flight attendant Summer Benson lives by two rules: Don’t stay with the same man for too long and never stay in one place. She’s about to break rule number one by considering accepting her boyfriend’s proposal—then disaster strikes and her world is shattered in an instant. Summer heads to Black Dog Bay, where the locals welcome her. Even Hattie Huntington, the town’s oldest, richest, and meanest resident, likes her enough to give her a job. Then there’s Dutch Jansen, the rugged, stoic mayor, who’s the opposite of her type. She probably shouldn't be kissing him. She definitely shouldn't be falling in love. After a lifetime of globe-trotting, Summer has finally found a home. But Hattie has old scores to settle and a hidden agenda for her newest employee. Summer finds herself faced with an impossible choice: Leave Black Dog Bay behind forever, or stay with the ones she loves and cost them everything...

Praise for the book:
“Beth Kendrick has reminded me once again exactly why I love her books so much. Cure for the Common Breakup is packed with humor, wit and a lot of heart.  A charming and exceptionally entertaining story!  I can’t recommend this book highly enough.”--Jane Porter, national bestselling author of The Good Wife

       Review by Marlene Engel
      As a flight attendant, Summer Benson is used to traveling the world.  She lives by the rules:  don’t stay with the same person or in the same place for too long.  However, she was considering breaking the first rule when her boyfriend unexpectedly breaks up with her and her world (literally) comes crashing down.  

      Needing to mend her broken spirit, Summer decides to hang up her wings and head to Black Dog Bay.  Known as the breakup mecca, Summer feels that it’s the perfect place to sit around eating ice cream and watching sappy movies.  What she doesn’t expect is to fall for the handsome and emotionally unavailable mayor, Dutch Jansen.  Many women in Black Dog Bay have tried to capture his heart, but no one has succeeded.  Until now? 

      Come take a ride with Summer as she discovers new places, people and herself!  So, sit back and buckle up.  You may be in for a bumpy ride!

      What I’ve always loved about Beth Kendrick’s books is that they never disappoint.  You know when you buy the book that it’s going to not only be worth every penny spent, but also a great read!  I have been anticipating the release of Cure For The Common Breakup and can honestly say that it was worth the wait.  Fun, flirty and fabulous!  This book is the perfect Summer read!
