I did read a little more and the F bomb was dropped 2X. This word is very degrading and a professional author does not have to use it to convey a message. I did not finish the book.
"So far this week, I’d taken a dominatrix class, surfed for the first time, went oyster harvesting, and now I could add the V-Steam to my list of post-Sam adventures. Maybe that was the real purpose of the Boot Camp, to take you so far outside your comfort zone there wasn’t the room or the time to grieve the loss of your relationship. For example, right now, all I could think about was the fact I was stark naked, hunched over a steaming bowl of aromatic water. "
While this could easily have resembled a Lifetime movie - big city girl finds romance in a small town - the humor and emotion behind it expands the story to more than an one-dimensional show.
Instead, the Breakup Boot Camp forges new friendships, encourages her to confront her own demons, and helps set her on a new life path. I look forward to reading more from this author.
I would recommend it as it forces you to see what is important but there are parts that are tear jerkers. The heroine and others must work through their past mistakes.
My only thoughts are the friendships seemed a little fast to be so deep. I find many people as they get older are not as vulnerable as portrayed in the book. But overall a good book I would recommend. It has a happy ending but not a light read.

The overall premise of our heroine Joanna getting ready to marry her School Sweetheart and seemingly punishing herself so she can fit in to the perfect dress made me a little wary at first. However, her love/hate relationship with the Bridal Boot Camp she is attending in the morning before work - seriously up at 5am to intensively exercise before work, no dress is worth that; the "stuck in a rut" nature of her relationship with her fiance managed to feel fairly realistic. Throw in a dollop of over-achieving in her job at a Casting Agency and a snarky (in the best of ways) friend in Becca and you start to get a sense of who Joanna is before you are more than half a dozen pages in. When Joanna finds out her fiance, Sam, has been less than faithful to her she takes the only option and breaks everything off, spiralling in to Depression it is when her Bridal Boutique tell her about a fortnight long retreat in a gorgeous location that she decides to take action.
You could be excused for thinking that from her on in it will be filled with over used cliches as Joanna starts her time in idyllic Topsail. Yes, there are a few and some of the treatments on offer sound very "Goop!" but don't be fooled by the title; this may be retreat designed to help people get over broken relationships but the handling of it is excellent. From developing a support network with fellow attendees - one a woman of a certain age whose wealthy husband has upgraded her for a younger model to an almost Kardashian-esque celebrity with a string of failed relationships behind her. It would have been easy to make these characters cliches but they are very definitely fully rounded with their own quirks and foibles and, along with Joanna, they get what they need from these two weeks to improve their lives.
You see, that's really what the book is about, learning about who you are and what makes you happy. Not what you think should make you happy because of media and society but what actually makes YOU happy. It has an overwhelmingly positive message and even if we do have to have a little romance thrown in, someone to share your life with does make a lot of people happy.
The writing style is fun and with an almost chatty narrative I found myself irresistibly drawn to keep reading. I thoroughly enjoyed my time spent with this book and am eagerly looking forward to reading more from the author.
Set partly in Topsail that I had to look up and discovered IS a real place, a damaged woman finally meets the partner of her dreams and has a restart at her initial dream job having finally realised her school sweetheart has been a crutch following the death of her mother and a swanky wedding will not solve her broken relationship with her.
father or mend the problems in their relationship the V Steam made my XY chromosomes shrivel a bit as I am not as feminist as I project sober and I am an absolute troglodyte from the 50s back drunk
A good story that kept me awake and reading beyond a sensible time ,first time I have read this Authour after an email recommendation/suggestion from a subscription service
