The Broken Hearts Club
Out June 6, 2023 in paperback, eBook, and audiobook - Pre-order today!
Imogen Finch has never been in love... despite being the daughter of a matchmaker. Her only relationship to date was a fake one with a near stranger named August Tate that she made up to stop people from asking about her love life. To fill the void, she’s channeled her obsession with love into her passion for photography, using her ability to literally see the rose-gold glow of a person in love to capture stunning portraits.
But when her adviser says her photography portfolio is “one note”, she’s desperate to diversify. After hearing her forever crush, Ren, was recently dumped, she decides to photograph the broken-hearted, starting with him. Imogen is hopeful she’ll finally find love and get the right photos. So, the last thing she expects is for the real-life version of her fake boyfriend to show up in town asking why they “broke up”. Before she knows it she’s juggling August and Ren and falling for the first time in her life.
What People Are Saying...
"A sweet, effervescent rom com. Readers will be enchanted!" — Jenn Bennett, author of Alex, Approximately
"With a charming cast, artistic eye, and its perfectly imperfect "love rules," Susan Bishop Crispell's The Broken Hearts Club glows rose-gold. Readers will root for Imogen, wish August would slide into their DMs, and crave a Frankenbiscuit long after the last page!” — K.L. Walther, bestselling author of The Summer of Broken Rules
"Not unlike the rose gold love and teal heartbreak Mo can see on everyone else, The Broken Hearts Club promises a frothy, sugar-sweet love story—and delivers a surprising punch along with it. Susan Crispell has crafted a story that feels as refreshing as springtime rain but with the promise of a coming storm as Mo builds her rickety house of sticks. With every wrong turn, we learn along with Mo that love isn’t so simple, is sometimes inconvenient, and can almost never be planned for. The Broken Hearts Club is very much like the Frankenbiscuit from its own pages—dreamy first love wrapped in a big lie topped with some bad decisions and sprinkled with complications, served with a side of great banter and one incredible best friend. You will not regret ordering." — Samantha Markum, author of This May End Badly
"Fans of sweet romances with a light magical touch will enjoy this story of personal growth." — Kirkus Reviews
