Wendy Wax, USA Today bestselling author, returns this spring with another heartwarming and hilarious novel that readers will want to share with their best friends. Known for her binge-able beach reads that champion relatable characters, female friendships, and tackle real issues, Wax introduces fans and new readers to THE BREAK-UP BOOK CLUB (Berkley Trade Paperback Original), which tells the story of four friends who discover through good books and laughter that one of the best parts of life is that it doesn’t always go according to plan.
THE BREAK-UP BOOK CLUB
On paper, Jazmine, Judith, Erin and Sara have little in common—they’re very different people leading very different lives. And yet at book club meetings in an historic carriage house turned bookstore, they bond over a shared love of reading (and more than a little wine) as well as the growing realization that their lives are not turning out like they expected.
Former tennis star Jazmine is a top sports agent balancing a career and single motherhood. Judith is an empty nester questioning her marriage and the supporting role she chose. Erin’s high school sweetheart and fiancé develops a bad case of cold feet, and Sara’s husband takes a job out of town saddling Sara with a difficult mother-in-law who believes her son could have done better—not exactly the roommate most women dream of.
Though the women can’t always control what their everyday lives are like, their time together helps them make sense of it all, and even laugh about it. With the help of books, laughter, and the joy of ever evolving friendships, Jazmine, Judith, Erin and Sara find the courage to navigate new and surprising chapters of their lives as they seek their own versions of happily-ever-after.
