"Welcome to Black Dog Bay, a tiny seaside town in Delaware known as "the best place in America to bounce back from your breakup." Home to Better Off Bed-and-Breakfast, the Eat Your Heart Out bakery, and the Whinery bar, Black Dog Bay offers a haven for the suddenly single. Flight attendant Summer Benson lives by two rules: Don't stay with the same man for too long and never stay in one place. She's about to break rule number one by considering accepting her boyfriend's proposal-then disaster strikes and her world is shattered in an instant. Summer heads to Black Dog Bay, where the locals welcome her. Even Hattie Huntington, the town's oldest, richest, and meanest resident, likes her enough to give her a job. Then there's Dutch Jansen, the rugged, stoic mayor, who's the opposite of her type. She probably shouldn't be kissing him. She definitely shouldn't be falling in love. After a lifetime of globe-trotting, Summer has finally found a home. But Hattie has old scores to settle and a hidden agenda for her newest employee. Summer finds herself faced with an impossible choice: Leave Black Dog Bay behind forever, or stay with the ones she loves and cost them everything..."--… (mer)

Please note that I gave this book 4.5 stars which I rounded up to 5 on Goodreads since Goodreads does not allow for half stars on its site.

We follow flight attendant Summer Benson after she survives a plane crash and her boyfriend (who she thought was going to propose) dumping her once she's in the hospital. She hightails it to Black Dog Bay in Delaware to lick her wounds after remembering the brochure being on the plane and mentioning that it was a place for those single and heart broken to recover. Once Summer arrives in Black Dog Bay she meets the year long residents, the summer residents, and the mayor and his sister who she finds herself attracted to and wanting to take care of in that order.

I found Summer to be hilarious from beginning to end. When she first arrives in Black Dog Bay she is beaten down, and as a reader I was surprised that she was honestly. She didn't seem keen on marrying her hot nice guy pilot boyfriend. And for her to take things as she did felt weird. We figure out why, but it was a long meandering road to get there, and once we did it made sense, but I wish that we had, had some sort of resolution to Summer and her parents in some way. That whole thing hung over the book and honestly was one of the reasons why I didn't give this five stars.

The book was funny and sad in parts, but mostly funny. Reading about Summer and the other women in Black Dog Bay trying to get over their exes sounded like my friends and I in our 20s when we would burn our exes pictures. I have no idea why women do this, we just do. I thought adding in the little wrinkle with Summer trying to deal with Black Dog Bay's orneriest resident also made things interesting. But, another reason why I didn't give this book five stars, was the choice that Summer was forced to make. I felt like for a second this book had switched over to a regency romance since those are the only books that have set-ups like this. It really didn't work for me at all in a contemporary romance.

I have been to Delaware many many times, and I did laugh a bit that Black Dog Bay Delaware was super popular with summer residents and had people living there who had million dollar homes. If this was a place a little closer to D.C. maybe I could buy it, but other than that the fictional little town sounded cute and I wish that it existed. The book store, the Whinery, the hair salon and other places sounded like every single women who has been dumped fantasy.

The chemistry between Summer and the mayor, Dutch Jansen was believable and actually made sense. With Dutch and Summer both thinking that she is only there for a set point in time, it made a lot of sense that they would get together thinking that there would be no strings attached.

I thought the ending was very cute and I promptly went and bough the second book in the series after I finished this. ( )

It's pretty standard chick lit and there is nothing wrong with that. I loved the premise of Black Dog Bay...a town to go and heal your broken heart. The bar is called "The Whinery" :) Cute read and I'll continue the series.

This was a great fun read. Black Dog Bay is known as the place to go to recover from a broken heart. You can stay at the Better off dead bed and breakfast, shop at Retail Therapy and drink your cares away while listening to break up songs at the Whinery. ( )

I received a copy of Cure for the Common Breakup by Beth Kendrick in exchange for an honest review.

Summer Benson heart is broken so she recalls an article she read on this place called Black Dog Bay and decides that’s what she needs to get over her heartbreak. Everything is perfect here and she meets some kindred spirits who get what she’s going through and they help each other heal. I totally loved this book! It was funny, light and delightful! I think we all wish there was such a place – this book was so uplifting, even when things didn’t go right. Dutch seemed dreamy and not someone a girl would walk out on if they had any common sense. Can’t see anyone not loving this book!
