About The Book
Secrets never stay buried for long…
Lucy Harper has always been good at one thing: running from her past. But when her beloved Nana Lily passes away she has no choice except to return to the one place in the world she most wants to avoid…
Luna Bay hasn’t changed much in the eight years she has spent in London. The little Yorkshire village is still just as beautiful, but the new pub landlord is a gorgeous addition to the scenery!
Lucy only intended to stay for a day, yet when she discovers that Nana Lily has not only left her a cottage but also ‘The Broken Hearts Book Club’, Lucy is intrigued. Her Nana never have mentioned the club and Lucy can’t wait to get started, but walking into her first meeting she is more aware than ever that her past is finally catching up with her.
One way or another, Lucy must finally face the secrets she’s kept buried for so long – or spend the rest of her life on the run…
Lynsey James was born in Fife in 1991 and has been telling people how to spell her name ever since. She's an incurable bookworm who loves nothing more than getting lost in a good story with memorable characters. She started writing when she was really young and credits her lovely Grandad- and possibly a bump on the head from a Mr Frosty machine- with her love of telling stories. She used to write her own episodes of Friends and act them out in front of her family (in fact she's sure she put Ross and Rachel together first!)
A careers adviser at school once told Lynsey writing wasn't a "good option" and for a few years, she believed her. She tried a little bit of everything, including make-up artistry, teaching and doing admin for a chocolate fountain company. The free chocolate was brilliant. When Lynsey left her job a couple of years ago, she started writing full-time while she looked for another one. As soon as she started working on her story, Lynsey fell in love and decided to finally pursue her dream. She haven't looked back since.
When Lynsey's not writing, eating cake or drinking tea, she's daydreaming about the day Dylan O'Brien FINALLY realises they're meant to be together. It'll happen one day…
Because I too am in love with Dylan O'Brien and every now and then a gyrating, thrusting Dylan O'Brien is just what you need! This is for you Lynsey enjoy xxx
I read and reviewed Lynsey's début novel and fell in love on holiday of an evening I tucked myself in bed and fell in love with her words you can read my review for Just The Way You Are HERE so after that wonderful first experience of Lynsey James I was asked to take part in the tour for her latest release The Broken Hearts Book Club and boy was I pleased!
The book is focused on the leading lady Lucy Harper, a young woman with a heavy heart, eight years ago disaster struck which stripped her bare, she moved away from her home town, her family and everything she loved. Now she is back, after finding out her Nana has passed she comes back to a place that she left eight years ago but this time she may have to stay, see through the pain and realise sometimes guilt is misplaced, love is worth fighting for and a Nana's advice should always be listened to!
This book is charming full of intimate moments and little miracles, you can't fault it. The characters, believable, raw and complex, the plot weaving through your heart and leaving you with a smile you just can't seem to lose! If you are looking for a book that fills you with warmth and reminds you that loss stays with us, but it can grow into something beautiful, it can grow into acceptance and transform into happy memories.
A true delight!
