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.

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 was writing about.

If you're looking for a fun, romantic, and girly book - pick this up. It's a great read on the plane, at the beach, or while snuggled up under your covers.

This is a nice, positive, easy read. Good for the beach, vacation, or just to feel good. It's especially fun for anyone who has been to Buenos Aires, as the author talks about various parts of the city. I have re-read and shared with girlfriends.

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!

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.

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.

It had a good story, I didn't want to put it down, and it's definitely worth a read.

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
This is a smart, tight, well-written debut, a staple for chick lit with most chick lit ingredients (sans The Gay Pal) in an international setting, and, usually, more intelligent than average.

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!

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.
