Every time I read about Melissa Senate, I resolve to order her books. SEE JANE DATE was her first, THE SOLOMON SISTERS WISE UP is her second, and this new one, THE BREAK UP CLUB looks hilarious. Her website lists her top ten favorite books, so many of which overlap with mine, she lives on the southern coast of Maine (which I love) and her newest character in the break-up club has the same name as the character of my work-in-progress. This last bit isn't so grand, but it makes me like the woman, that we've been carrying on a secret relationship with an invisible creature who appears to us in living color despite the fact that no one else sees the woman, much less hears what she's saying to her friends.
Here's the press release:
Meet the reluctant members of The Breakup Club: Lucy Miller-Masterson: Superwoman Lucy finds her husband’s list of New Year’s resolutions and there’s only one: Leave Lucy.
Miranda Miller: Lucy’s younger sister has been pining for her ex for six months. Which beats trying to figure out what to do with her life at age 29. But then she inadvertently makes the love of her life propose to another woman….
Christopher Levy: Lucy’s new boss (why’d he get the promotion, anyway!) and a recently separated dad with weekend custody of his one-year-old, he has no clue how to navigate his new life as a single father, but the sanctimommies at the playground are full of annoying answers.
Roxy Marone: Twenty-five and dating her fiancé since first grade, winner of the Miss Traditional pageant goes on a life-changing job interview instead of to her own wedding. These four co-workers with nothing in common find they have a lot to talk about . . .
