It's pretty standard chick lit and there is nothing wrong with that. I loved the premise of Black Dog Bay...a town to go and heal your broken heart. The bar is called "The Whinery" :) Cute read and I'll continue the series.

This was a great fun read. Black Dog Bay is known as the place to go to recover from a broken heart. You can stay at the Better off dead bed and breakfast, shop at Retail Therapy and drink your cares away while listening to break up songs at the Whinery. ( )

I received a copy of Cure for the Common Breakup by Beth Kendrick in exchange for an honest review.

Summer Benson heart is broken so she recalls an article she read on this place called Black Dog Bay and decides that’s what she needs to get over her heartbreak. Everything is perfect here and she meets some kindred spirits who get what she’s going through and they help each other heal. I totally loved this book! It was funny, light and delightful! I think we all wish there was such a place – this book was so uplifting, even when things didn’t go right. Dutch seemed dreamy and not someone a girl would walk out on if they had any common sense. Can’t see anyone not loving this book!

Summer Benson rises above a stereotypical trope--flight attendant in a relationship with a pilot--to learn how to be on her own and trust her own judgement. After the pilot deems her unworthy, Summer retreats to a small town almost off the map, Black Dog Bay, Delaware. Part tourist mecca for the brokenhearted (complete with a bar named the Whinery) and part owned by old family money and the town's own version of Ms. Havisham, Hattie Huntington, Summer immediately fits in with the townspeople and meets the town's most eligible bachelor and mayor in a very unusual way. Very cute summer read. ( )

Welcome to Black Dog Bay, a tiny seaside town in Delaware known as “the best place in America to bounce back from your breakup.” Home to the Better Off Bed-and-Breakfast, the Eat Your Heart Out bakery, and the Whinery bar, Black Dog Bay offers a haven for the suddenly single.
 
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....
