Break-up Book Club
by Wax, Wendy

"The story of a book club of broken hearts, where four women come together and discover the power of female friendship and find the courage to pursue their dreams, from the USA Today bestselling author of My Ex-Best Friend's Wedding. Jazmine was supposedto be a professional tennis player, but her plans to go pro were quashed in a car crash. Now she's a top sports agent balancing a demanding career and single motherhood. Judith is an empty nester stuck in an unhappy marriage. After her husband's sudden death, she has to build a new life-one she never allowed herself to imagine-on top of the ashes of the old. When Sara finds out that her husband has left her for a secret second family in another city, she believes she's hit rock bottom...until her husband steals all of his mother's money, and Sara gets a new roommate-her mother-in-law. Erin was a week away from marrying her high school sweetheart when her fianc‚e called off the wedding. Heartbroken, Erin is forced to navigate adulthood as a single woman for the first time. Once a month, these women meet in a historic carriage house in Atlanta seeking solace, friendship, and people who share their love of books (okay, and wine). Together, with a lot of inspiration from their favorite books, they help one another move forward, to discover who they want to be now and what will make them happy"-

Wendy Wax, a former broadcaster, is the author of sixteen novels and two novellas, including My Ex–Best Friend’s Wedding, Best Beach Ever, One Good Thing, Sunshine Beach, A Week at the Lake, While We Were Watching Downton Abbey, The House on Mermaid Point, Ocean Beach, and Ten Beach Road. The mother of two grown sons, she has left the suburbs of Atlanta for an in-town high-rise, that is eerily similar to the fictional high-rise she created in her 2013 release, While We Were Watching Downton Abbey.

Annell's book club meetings are like many others-half the time spent chatting about the book, half the time spent catching up, and plenty of wine and snacks. But the book club at Between the Covers, Annell's bookstore, is special, too. It brings together a diverse group of customers, from EMTs to sports agents, golf-obsessed wives to quiet grandmothers. There's a million reasons why every participant values the group's camaraderie, community, and connection. When a rash of divorces, break-ups, and personal tragedies hits the group, they turn to each other for cheering up, sage advice, and an impressively researched revenge plot. An ensemble novel intertwining the stories of several women experiencing the highs and lows of modern love, Wax's (My Ex-Best Friend's Wedding, 2019) latest novel was built for book clubs. Sure to delight rom-com fiends and fans of Emily Giffin's and Holly Chamberlin's books, it champions inner strength and the power of a fresh perspective. Highlighting the challenges of different seasons of life, Wax charts the journeys of a trusted group of strangers-turned-friends. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
