  About The Book

The compelling new novel by the author of The Same Sweet Girls (over 250,000 sold in all editions)-a Southern love story with lots of great humor; this is King's big breakout book.

Clare, a woman in her forties who leads retreats for women in troubled marriages, is finding her own way after her husband killed himself. She doesn't want a new man in her life, so when Lex comes into the picture, having moved to South Carolina from Maine to run a marina, she insists that they are only friends. However, soon she begins feeling more than friendship for this burly guy with the charismatic personality; the problem is, his difficult wife Annalee keeps changing her mind about whether or not she wants a divorce. Adding to the locals' excitement is Jubilee, a once-a-year event where the entire town goes to the beach at midnight to catch the crabs and fish that swim ashore, drawn by a mystical tide. Full of intriguing characters who will hook women readers in right from the beginning, Queen of Broken Hearts is another great read from Cassandra King.



"A wonderful and uplifting tale. Full of romance and surprises along the way."

Fannie Flagg


"Cassandra King's QUEEN OF BROKEN HEARTS is an absolutely fabulous story of healing and hope. Filled with irresistible characters that are beautifully drawn and have great insights into life, I laughed and cried and you will too. Isn't it typical that some people have advice for everyone but can't get their own life in gear? I absolutely adored this book! Congratulations Cassandra King on a monumental success!"
Dorothea Benton Frank, author of Full of Grace
