Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Obsessive-compulsive Seattle Web worker Cassandra Moore has a life plan (and many meticulous revisions thereof), but that's before she loses her job, apartment and fiancé in one fell swoop. One martini-induced revelation later, Cassie books a planless six months in Buenos Aires. Though a formulaic tale of rejection rebound, Morrison's debut is firmly digital age: Cassie blogs her heart away, collecting a global network of similarly emotionally bruised souls, giving birth to the Buenos Aires Broken Hearts Club. There will be handsome men (Argentinean and American), sage girlfriends and even a melancholic political group of mothers whose cause Cassie champions. Finally, after a series of predictable misunderstandings, sensitive local artist Marco will attempt to teach Cassie to trust in love again.

Review

'There's nothing better than reading a book you can't wait to tell your friends about, and THE BUENOS AIRES BROKEN HEARTS CLUB is exactly that. Funny, fresh, enchanting and real, this is one fabulous debut' - Lani Diane Rich, author of THE FORTUNE QUILT

More About the Author

Those first years at college, you couldn't have paid me to take an English class. But as the university constantly reminded me, I couldn't graduate without one. At last, I relented and enrolled in creative writing. I later discovered the course didn't count toward my requirement. But it was too late--I had caught the bug. I changed my major from political science to English and ultimately ended up with a MA in Literature. Five years after that, I sat down and began my first novel.

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.

In typical Hollywood fashion, that same day (seriusly, hasn't anyone told this writer that too much may well be, ahem, "Too Much"?)

Purchased a copy of this book and couldn't put the book down until finished reading the book.

Great summer read! One of those interesting not too deep but really fun books. Perfect for sitting at the beach or having along when you want to dive into a novel and forget everything around you--
It is always interesting to see how a girl handles a REAL bad day, and comes out on top!

Format: Paperback
Poor Cassie Moore... when her life in Seattle goes awry and her perfect life plan is forever altered, she looks for a new life and a new start. Granted, her new start is decided in a drunken stupor, but she braves her decision anyway - to start over in Argentina without a plan at all. Cassie is a newbie traveler, and has never left the US, and she is especially panicked because she doesn't know the Argentine language and customs. But, her decision to stay in Argentina for the full six months is a brave one, and I really enjoyed Cassie's journey. Cassie was a bit `loose' sexually for my liking, but she did seem to be a good friend in the book and was easy to identify with in other ways. The author really did a wonderful job of bringing Argentina/Buenos Aires alive, and her descriptions of the life, colors, and flavors of the city had me wishing I could visit. The book was a travelogue in many ways, and I think a lot of women will enjoy this book. It's better than traditional chick-lit because the setting is unique and interesting, and yet it still has a lot of romance too.

Format: Paperback
Meet Cassie, a twenty-something it-chick with OCD tendencies, who launches herself into the unknown (Buenos Aires) after personal distaster (Cassie's perspective) hits her in her hometown Seattle. In Buenos Aires she goes through the stereotypical notions of a foreigner who has never been out of his geographical or lingual comfort zone. She meets Portenios as well as other foreigners with sob stories of their own. And then there are elements of personal growth and life-changing experiences.

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!

On a daily basis, I'm on the lookout for great books to read on my Kindle. Every so often I stumble on a truly wonderful read. That was the case with this book by Jessica Morrison. "My plan" is to read every book she'll write in the future and that is a firm plan, too.

I bought this book to read on my flight to Buenos Aires and it was a fun and light read. I passed it on to a friend and she enjoyed it, too.

I loved this book! It wasn't too heavy but very entertaining. It was easy to read, enjoyable and had some fun twists and turns throughout the novel. I really hope Jessica Morrison writes more like this one.

The Buenos Aires Broken Hearts Club book is a fun read, great for summer or any time you just want something light and funny. We've all had times our lives aren't "perfect" and this book makes fun of those of us who think we can completely control our lives at all times! Not to mention, hearing about exotic places is never boring. Looking forward to more books by Jessica Morrison!

Format: Paperback
The Buenos Aires Broken Hearts Club is breath of fresh air. Cassie has a plan for her life and one night after finding her fiance in bed with another woman, she gets drunk and throws caution to the wind. She ends up in Buenos Aires and is scared half out of her mind. Something most of us wish we would have done at some point, but never got quite drunk enough to actually do!!
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.
