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
“Beth Kendrick has written a sharp, sassy, surprisingly emotional story that will make readers laugh out loud from page one and sigh from the heart at the end. Light and lovely perfection!"--Roxanne St. Claire, New York Times bestselling author of The Barefoot Bay Series
“Utterly delightful! Summer Benson will charm and disarm her way into the hearts of readers as easily as she does the residents of Black Dog Bay.”--Meg Donohue, USA Today bestselling author of All the Summer Girls
If you are looking for an light, funny beach read grab a copy of this book. It has wry humor and romance but the characters, all of them, have great chemistry. There are parts that can be emotional but I really liked how the author kept the story flowing and never let the feel of the book get too bogged down by the problems the main character Summer ran in to. When I read books like this I like there to be depth but I am not big on reading things that will bring me down.....I have enough of my own problems in real life! I definitely will be looking up more books by this author.
