Queen of Broken Hearts

Publisher Hyperion, March 2006

It’s not easy being the Queen of Broken Hearts. Just ask Clare, who has willingly assumed the mantle while her career as a divorce coach thrives. Now she’s preparing to open a permanent home for the retreats she leads, on a slice of breathtaking property on the Alabama coast owned by her mother-in-law. Make that former mother in law, a colorful eccentric who teaches Clare much about love and sacrifice and living freely. When Clare’s marriage ends in tragedy, her work becomes the sole focus of her life. While Clare has no problems helping the hundreds of men and women who seek her advice to mend their broken hearts, healing her own is another matter entirely. Falling in love again is the last thing she wants. So when Lex- a charismatic, charming, burly sea captain- moves to town the run the marina, Claire insists they remain friends and nothing more. But even though she fights it, she begins to fall for him only to find she has a rival, his estranged wife Elinor.

A story infused with all the flavors, textures, and intrigues of a small Southern town, with a rich resonant center, QUEEN OF BROKEN HEARTS is a bold step forward for Cassandra King.

 

Critiques/Reviews

"Cassandra King’s QUEEN OF BROKEN HEARTS is an absolutely fabulous story of healing and hope. Filled with irresistible characters that are beautifully drawn and have great insights into life, I laughed and cried and you will too. Isn’t it typical that some people have advice for everyone but can’t get their own life in gear? I absolutely adored this book! Congratulations Cassandra King on a monumental success!"
-- Dorothea Benton Frank, author of Full of Grace
 

"...a wonderful and uplifting tale. Full of romance and surprises along the way."
-- Fannie Flagg, author of Fried Green Tomatoes and Can’t Wait to Get to Heaven
 

"This novel about friendship, heartache, self-discovery and love—in all its wounding, wacky, and wonderful forms—had me laughing out loud, and then moved me to tears."
-- Sandra Brown, author of Ricochet
 

“These are not ‘The Same Sweet Girls,’ but all those who loved that novel will love this one even more. Cassandra King's characters are fully drawn, richly imagined human beings, whose lives will continue to resonate long after you've turned the last page. “
-- Mark Childress, author of One Mississippi
 

"I just finished Queen of Broken Hearts and agree it's her best book yet. I was walking around the house with the book in my hand since I couldn't put it down. I'll blurb it next week for BookSense - I know it will be a # 1 pick!"
-- Sally Brewster, Park Road Books
