I’m part of a Book Blog Tour for CURE FOR THE COMMON BREAKUP.  I have to admit, today was supposed to be a review post, but the days have gotten away from me and I’m not finished with the book yet.  So, I’m going to share the book with you anyway and get you my review just as soon as I can!

In CURE FOR THE COMMON BREAKUP, we are taken 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 the 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….

CURE FOR THE COMMON BREAKUP will be the perfect summer, beach read.  First of all, the cover screams summer! I love a cover that immediately grabs my attention and this one did it. It is funny, snarky, and has just the right amount of romance.  This is a book to share with your girlfriends. I’m completely entertained and can’t wait to share my full review with you.  This is my first Beth Kendrick book and I will have to check out the rest of her books.
