This is my first Beth Kendrick book and I found that she is a talented and humorous writer. I thoroughly enjoyed this book so much I couldn’t put it down until the very last page was read. This is a book that I just didn’t want it to end, I liked it that much. I would like this to be a series about all the characters that had a break up and ended up living in Black Dog Bay.
Summer Benson is a character that all readers enjoy and wish secretly that they could be like them or at least I do. Summer Benson is loving life right now, she gets to jet set around the world and gets paid for it. She’s a flight attendant and her boyfriend is a pilot, what more could a girl ask for.
Her world literally comes crashing to the ground and she is thrown into a whirlwind of emotional and physical trauma. What’s a girl to do when her pilot boyfriend decides he didn’t love her enough and just walked out of her life and does it at the worst possible moment. She walks out of the hospital and heads to the heartbreak capital of the world.
Black Dog Bay, Delaware, is where the broken-hearted go when the heart is broken into pieces.
After arriving the first person she meets is Dutch Jensen the hot, single mayor. That’s all she needs right now is someone to see her in this shape. She finally arrives at the bed and breakfast and she is told of the rules. The first and main rule is to turn in her phone. After laying in bed for days, the innkeeper finally has to call Summer’s step-sister, Summer’s emergency contact. Finally out of bed, showered and the much needed new clothes, she meets the residents of Black Dog Bay.
At the bar the owner gives her a drink called the cure for the common breakup, (the recipe is included), Summer is suddenly feeling all is right with the world until Hattie comes in. Her world is suddenly changed by Black Dog Bay’s bitter and meanest resident, the wealthy Hattie Huntington.
Hattie has a mean streak and it’s heading straight for Summer, How can Summer choose her happiness over the livelihood and happiness of her new friends? Leaving Black Dog Bay was far more worse then what she was feeling when she arrived. Summer just knows happiness for her is over but she knows her friends are safe and well in Delaware or so she thinks.
I really can’t say enough good things about this book. Loved, Loved, Loved it.
