Welcome to Black Dog Bay, a tiny seaside town in Delaware known as "the best place in America to bounce back from your breakup." Home to Better Off Bed-and-Breakfast, the Eat Your Heart Out bakery, and the Whinery bar, Black Dog Bay offers a haven for the suddenly single.
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... -Goodreads
Heartbroken heroine, Summer Benson, comes to Black Dog Bay hoping to sample some of their fabled hospitality, and recover from the injuries from both her downed plane and her shattered heart.
What neither she, nor the quirky cast that inhabits Black Dog Bay knows, is that a chance run-in with the mayor's prize roses, will change lives and open hearts forever.
Cure For The Common Breakup is the quintessential Summer read. The perfect blend of heartache, laughter, quirk, and sass; this book is destined to become a staple in any reader's 'feel good read' pile.
Summer Benson is a force to be reckoned with. Her fire and feisty spirit is just what the sleepy hamlet of Black Dog Bay need to shake things up. On the same token, the warm and inviting safety that Black Dog Bay offers our bedraggled spitfire, is just what she needs to come back into her own.
The romance found here...and believe me, there is romance. Is sweet, fun,and a joy to read.
Dutch, is the perfect balance for the whirlwind that is Summer.
This is an awesome one sitting read!
So sit back, relax, and enjoy the the read!
