Description

“Merlin gives off Sophie Kinsella and Emily Giffin vibes only with an execution of plots that is all her own….Beth Merlin is totally going to grow in popularity. I'm calling it." - Book and Broadway

After weeks of training to whip Joanna Kitt into shape for her big day, her picture-perfect engagement to her high school sweetheart is torn in two, and Joanna is left out on her perfectly toned rear end. To put the past and her heartache behind her, she sets off for two weeks at the renowned Retreat House Breakup Boot Camp in Topsail Island off the coast of North Carolina.

Despite her sadness, Joanna throws herself into the experience hoping surfing, yoga, spa treatments, meditation, and talk therapy will be enough to help her get over the one man she’s ever loved. But she soon learns the Boot Camp is only the first step to healing her broken heart. Joanna will have to come to terms with the career she abandoned, the loss in her life she never fully accepted, and the role she played in the ending of her relationship.

When she meets Todd Aldrich, the handsome and mysterious hotel chef, she has the chance to take her renewed heart out for a test drive and see if she is ready for new beginnings and new love.

Will 12 steps be enough to get her life back on track? Or will her getaway to get over him prove healing the heart takes a whole lot more?

  • (5/5)
    Such a cute little book! I loved that she worked on herself before jumping into a something new.
  • (3/5)
    The narrator was great but who ever edited it.... not so great around chapters 19 to 21 you hear them correcting narrator and repeating sentences and chapter 40 has a big mic drop noise which certainly startles.
    Book itself was predictable but enjoyable
  • (5/5)
    The title caught my attention. In listening to the story, there were times she should have asked questions and did not. This was my first listen to this author, and I truly enjoyed it.
  • (4/5)
    This was a cute book. While I would have loved to see Jo get back with Sam and work to overcome their problems it was still a really good read. The book itself deserves 5 stars the audio was awful.
  • (4/5)

    Things that would have made this a much better experience :

    1) that someone edited out coughs, throat clears, comments from the sound booth and other things that should have been edited.

    2) in some of the dialogue it is hard to distinguish who said what. If it is because “he said , she said” is omitted by the writer or inexperienced narration, I don’t know..

    3) The last paragraphs are somewhat over the top.

    The story is OK, nothing exceptional but the narration is horrendous. It's so badly edited, could hear the person in the background say when they were ready to record, constant big deep heavy breaths after every sentence, clearing her throat, mixing up words, all things that should have been edited out.
