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 by Beth Kendrick is a story that runs the gamut of feelings, but still manages to be a light-hearted read. This is a fabulous summer/beach read. Right from the beginning of the book, you know you are not in for your typical breakup story. Summer heads to Black Dog Bay to heal her wounds after a tough break-up. She finds that the town is more than it seems and the people are as well. Summer also realizes that maybe her vision of herself is skewed.
I loved the concept of the town, and the characters were real and entertaining. The story was a quick read for me and I felt invested in finding out what happens to the different people involved in the story. Summer is snarky and sassy and I just really liked her. Dutch sounds like the perfect hottie. 😉 Hattie is a hoot!
