Original review at www.125pages.com I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. The Broken Hearts Book Club is one of those cute reads that you can just sink into. I really enjoyed Lynsey James’ first book Just the Way You Are and she is going to be my Author Tuesday for December 8, 2015. So when I heard she had a newly released second book, I jumped at the chance to read it and I’m very glad I did. Lucy is an every girl who has never found her place. Great at planning but short on execution, she is sacked from her job the week before her grandmothers funeral. Returning to her small town home for the first time in eight years is an added shock to her system. Then she finds out her grandmother left her the local book club in her will. The world building was solid as was the pacing. The characters were generally well fleshed out, the two best friends could have used a little more build up but they were still solid. Lucy is one of those characters who tries so very hard to do everything right and always screws it up, very Becky Bloomwood-ish. A few times it was a little much, as one person is not that integral to everyone in the entire town. But the story was always redeemed by the good at the heart of the story. I also enjoyed the semi-surprise twist of why Lucy had not been back to town for so long. The love story was decent but a little too giant surprises at every turn. Even with those few detractions I still really enjoyed The Broken Hearts Book Club, it was a solid read with a cute heart.

This was a cute make everybody feel good little romance (sex is only implied for the most part) that has its happy ending. Of course, there are a few rough patches along the way and a couple of hurdles but that just adds to the suspense of will they or won't they. It was well written and basically pretty entertaining. I did get a little tired of hearing about what Vickie did and was finally glad to hear what had happened on that dreadful night that made Lucy such an outcast in the town. Turns out it was just a mother looking for someone to blame because it wasn't Lucy's fault. I'm still not sure if Jake was sincere about everything though. He was just with Rachael a few weeks before and didn't take him long to go running back. I don't know if I trust him. Anyways, it was a good read, entertaining, enjoyable and fun. I would recommend it. Thanks to Carina UK and Net Galley for the free e-galley in exchange for an honest review.
