  About The Book

The national bestselling author of The Same Sweet Girls and The Sunday Wife returns with another compulsively readable novel

It's not easy being the Queen of Broken Hearts. Just ask Clare, who has willingly assumed the mantle while her career as a divorce coach thrives. Now she's preparing to open a permanent home for the retreats she leads, on a slice of breathtaking property on the Alabama coast owned by her mother-in-law. Make that former mother-in-law, a colorful eccentric who teaches Clare much about love and sacrifice and living freely. When Clare's marriage ends in tragedy, her work becomes the sole focus of her life. While Clare has no problem helping the hundreds of men and women who seek her advice to mend their broken hearts, healing her own is another matter entirely. Falling in love again is the last thing she wants.

So when Lex -- a charismatic, charming, burly sea captain -- moves to town to run the marina, Clare insists they remain friends and nothing more. But even though she fights it, she begins to fall for him -- and then finds she has a rival, his estranged wife Annalee.

A story infused with all the flavors, textures, and intrigues of a small Southern town, with a rich, resonant center, Queen of Broken Hearts is a bold step forward for 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
