Good Reads: The Breakup Doctor

The Breakup DoctorThe Breakup Doctor by Phoebe Fox
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Breakup Doctor is a well written and well edited chick lit novel. The plot is original, interesting and occasionally funny, but it is also filled with conflict.

The heroine is a licensed social worker trying to rebuild her practice after her office is destroyed and her partners bail on her. She lands a gig as a newspaper columnist giving advice on surviving the end of relationships. She has always been in control, so when the second man in as many years decides to end their relationship she is surprised to find herself doing the same self destructive things she warns her clients to avoid.

This is a story about relationships and self discovery. At times, it is painful to watch this professional woman lose control, but this book does end with a HFN. I am looking forward to reading the next novel by this author.
