Publisher's summary

Named one of 2021’s Best Beach Reads by BustleCountry LivingCosmopolitanAugusta Chronicle ∙ E! Online ∙ PureWow ∙ SheReads ∙ and more!

Breakups, like book clubs, come in many shapes and sizes and can take us on unexpected journeys as four women discover in this funny and heartwarming exploration of friendship from the USA Today best-selling author of Ten Beach Road and My Ex-Best Friend’s Wedding.

On paper, Jazmine, Judith, Erin, and Sara have little in common - they’re very different people leading very different lives. And yet at book club meetings in a historic carriage house turned bookstore, they bond over a shared love of reading (and more than a little wine) as well as the growing realization that their lives are not turning out like they expected.

Former tennis star Jazmine is a top sports agent balancing a career and single motherhood. Judith is an empty nester questioning her marriage and the supporting role she chose. Erin’s high school sweetheart and fiancé develops a bad case of cold feet, and Sara’s husband takes a job out of town saddling Sara with a difficult mother-in-law who believes her son could have done better - not exactly the roommate most women dream of.

With the help of books, laughter, and the joy of ever evolving friendships, Jazmine, Judith, Erin, and Sara find the courage to navigate new and surprising chapters of their lives as they seek their own versions of happily-ever-after.

Critic reviews

One of Cosmopolitan’s 20 Books to Read This Summer

"The Break-up Book Club is everything we've come to expect from Wendy Wax - a heartwarming, witty and compulsively readable tale that makes you feel like you're spending time with your best girlfriends. I loved it!" (Colleen Oakley, author of You Were There Too)

“Wendy Wax knows what readers crave most - to surround themselves with good friends and great books. The Break-up Book Club gives us a diverse group of southern women challenged by life, but with the strength of new friendships, they learn to stand strong, leap faithfully, and fight back. After reading this one, you’ll be either looking for a book club or thanking your lucky stars you belong to one.” (Liz Talley, author of The Wedding War)

“Witty and warm, The Break-up Book Club is a delightful journey through the changing lives of four strong, fascinating, independent women. I want - no, NEED - to join this book club!” (Karen Hawkins, New York Times best-selling author of The Book Charmer)
