Synopsis

WARM CHARMING AND FLAT-OUT FUNNY…

“A heartwarming and funny story about friendship, romance, and the heart-wrenching reality of breakups—while busting out some spot-on dating advice along the way.”— Liz Tuccillo, Bestselling Co-Author of He’s Just Not That Into You and Executive Story Editor of HBO’s Emmy Award-Winning Series Sex and the City

A broken leg requires an orthopedist. A broken car requires a mechanic. And a broken heart requires a specialist too. The Breakup Doctor is now in.

Call Brook Ogden a matchmaker-in-reverse. Let others bring people together; Brook, licensed mental health counselor, picks up the pieces after things come apart. When her own therapy practice collapses, she maintains perfect control: landing on her feet with a weekly advice-to-the-lovelorn column and a successful consulting service as the Breakup Doctor: on call to help you shape up after you breakup.

But when her own relationship suddenly crumbles, Brook finds herself engaging in almost every bad-breakup behavior she preaches against. And worse, she starts a rebound relationship with the most inappropriate of men: a dangerously sexy bartender with anger-management issues—who also happens to be a former patient.

As her increasingly out-of-control behavior lands her at rock-bottom, Brook realizes you can’t always handle a messy breakup neatly—and that sometimes you can’t pull yourself together until you let yourself fall apart.

 

Praise for THE BREAKUP DOCTOR:

“Warm, charming, and flat-out funny—a delightful debut!” – Sarah Bird, Bestselling Author of The Boyfriend School and The Gap Year

“A pleasure from beginning to end. The Breakup Doctor is as wise as it is funny.” – Sherry Thomas, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Luckiest Lady in London and My Beautiful Enemy

“If I didn’t know better I’d say Brook was based on me; her story certainly parallels my life. Hitting rock bottom is the best thing that can happen to anyone (in hindsight) and laughter is the best medicine. The Breakup Doctor is packed with entertaining, good advice.” —Donna Barnes, Relationship Coach and Author of Giving Up Junk-food Relationships, and Founder of the Date Better Online Dating Network

“I was expecting a cute quick read, what I got was much more. Brook’s character is great. She is well-rounded and her path to self-discovery through her breakup was realistic and at times heartwarming.” – Chick Lit Books

“A heartwarming and funny story about friendship, romance, and the heart-wrenching reality of breakups—while busting out some spot-on dating advice along the way.”— Liz Tuccillo, Bestselling Co-Author of He’s Just Not That Into You and Executive Story Editor of HBO’s Emmy Award-Winning Series Sex and the City
