A task a day to cure a broken heart.
Esmé Peel is approaching thirty with some trepidation, but hope in her heart. If she can just get her long-term boyfriend Andrew to propose, she will have ticked everything off her ‘things to do by the time you’re 30′ list. She didn’t reckon on finding another woman’s earring in her bed however, and soon she finds herself single, homeless and in need of a new plan. Her best friend Carys gives her the perfect present – The Single Girl’s Calendar – which has a different cure for heartbreak every day:
Day 1: Look and feel fabulous with a new hair style.
Day 2: Step out of your comfort zone and try something new.
Day 3: Reconnect with friends and enjoy!
Despite thinking it’s a bit of a gimmick, Esmé hasn’t got any better ideas, so she puts the plan into action. By the end of week one she has four new male housemates, and despite a broken heart she is determined to show Andrew she can do more than survive, she can thrive.
This was a fun read! Esme’ may be a bit addicted to her routine and her long-range plans, but when she finds another woman’s earring in her bed she does not hesitate to walk out that door and move on.
As fate steps in along with the calendar, she finds herself trying her hardest to stick with the daily activities and step outside of her comfort zone.
I don’t think there was a character in this lovely tale that I did not like! They were each so unique and each added something to Esme’s new-found confidence.
Call it Chick Lit, call it Fluff, it put a smile on my face the entire time I read it!
