Book Club Monday

This week’s book club Monday choice, The Heartfix, was a recommendation from Plum Sykes, uber Vogue fashionista and sister of my sweet friend Lucy Sykes.  She listed it as a must read so of course my interest was peaked!!  The author, Stella Grey writes a very popular column in the British newspaper, The Guardian, called Mid-life, Ex-Wife.  Here is the storyline of The Heartfix:

Mind-boggling, heart-rending and darkly comic, this is the full story for the first time, from the writer of the Guardian column Midlife Exwife….

When her husband fell in love with someone else, Stella Grey thought she’d be unhappy for the rest of her life. But then she realised that she needed to take her future in her own hands. She needed to meet someone wonderful, and find a heartfix for heartbreak.

So, she joined online dating sites and embarked on a mission. What followed were 693 days of encounters, on screen and in person: dates in cafs and over glasses of astringent red wine, short term relationships and awkward sex, but mostly there were phone calls and emails (many, many emails). Her journey was never dull, featuring marriage proposals, invitations to Tangier, badly timed food poisoning and much younger men but was it ultimately successful?

Totally compulsive, painfully true and darkly comic, this is an unputdownable account of one woman’s search for love online.  Summary AMAZON.COM

The Heartfix is only available in the UK which makes it such a fun,

 unique gift for your girlfriends and yourself, as well.  You can
