More About the Author
Like Cassie in The Buenos Aires Broken Hearts Club, I spent several transformative months in Buenos Aires. This was back in 2003, and I'm sure a lot has changed about the city, but I can tell you that it had me terrified, charmed, captivated and desperately sad to leave. You should go. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy my book.
Top Customer Reviews
The book is chick lit, entertaining, witty and funny, including the most gorgeous of all men, of course. It may contain elements of soap-opera style exaggeration on the interpersonal level. Jessica Morrison paints a very true picture of Buenos Aires through the eyes of a non-native who falls in love with the city and its vibes.
As long as the reader manages the literary expectations, you will thoroughly enjoy it. If you have seen all seasons of Sex in the City a million times and are looking for a read when you're away from your DVD player - this is it!
It is always interesting to see how a girl handles a REAL bad day, and comes out on top!
In Seattle, web assistant producer Cassie has learned to cope with her parents' divorce and her anxious mother's warnings ("Men leave you for your secretary") by becoming obsessive-compulsive and aligning her entire life, past and future, to The Plan: she's devised a complicated spreadsheet with Goals for every stage of her life, including love, romance and happy-ever-after.
But then, predictably, everything goes wrong: not only does she not get a much-expected promotion--she's deemed "unexciting" and is fired from her job. In typical Hollywood fashion, that same day (seriusly, hasn't anyone told this writer that too much may well be, ahem, "Too Much"?) she's evicted from her apartment and finds her Perfect Fiance, Jeff, in bed with his ex girlfriend--a non perfect girl whom he still likes better than Cassie--again, predictably, he tells Cassie she's "too perfect." Clearly, The Plan has failed.
Devastated, Cassie licks her wounds and, drunk, books herself an "outta here" six month destination to, of all places, Buenos Aires, Argentina. Cassie isn't the most urbane or sophisticated of girls, has apparently never been anywhere other than tourist spots in Mexico, speaks no languages, and has never felt any interest in "other cultures." This, she tells us ourselves. And it's quite obvious too!Read more ›
This book is filled with entertaining characters as Cassie tries to find herself in this new and strange environment. Nothing is ever too serious however. This book is refreshing and entertaining. Something funny and crazy to lift your spirits.

This was a surprisingly good read. I picked the book up because it had a great price, even though I don't read what I'd classify as chic lit as much anymore. Read more
I enjoyed this story even though the plot line was completely predictable. I read this shortly before visiting Buenos Aires myself and it's clear that the author knew the area she... Read morePublished on January 30, 2014 by Mermaid
