Prah, Constantine and Baryeh Review: The Broken Hearts Book Club (Luna Bay 1) by Lynsey James

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and Happy Valentine’s Day to come! Yes it’s been a while since we’ve shared our reviews, but now we’re back. Remember to check out what Constantine and Baryeh thought of the book.

The Blurb
Secrets never stay buried for long...

Lucy Harper has always been good at one thing: running from her past. But when her beloved Nana Lily passes away she has no choice except to return to the one place in the world she most wants to avoid...

Luna Bay hasn't changed much in the eight years she has spent in London. The little Yorkshire village is still just as beautiful, but the new pub landlord is a gorgeous addition to the scenery!

Lucy only intended to stay for a day, yet when she discovers that Nana Lily has not only left her a cottage but also The Broken Hearts Book Club, Lucy is intrigued. Her Nana never have mentioned the club and Lucy can't wait to get started, but walking into her first meeting she is more aware than ever that her past is finally catching up with her.

One way or another, Lucy must finally face the secrets she's kept buried for so long-or spend the rest of her life on the run…

My Review
A wonderful book. It had all of the components I look for in a good story. It was funny, there was growth in the characters, and the romance was just right. Lucy’s issues with her past were deep and it didn’t help that someone in her hometown hadn’t gotten over her pain and so continued to make Lucy rehash the past every chance she got. The whole situation was rather tragic for everyone involved, especially Lucy.
The book was well written and flowed easily. Although I really enjoyed the novel, for once I would have liked it better if everything didn’t end up so perfectly in the end. Because it didn’t read like a true romance to me, a loose end or two would’ve made it seem more realistic. But that’s my humble opinion.
I give this book four out of five book shaped chocolate bars.
I purchased this book from AmazonUK.
Remember to stop by Constantine and Baryeh’s blogs to read their reviews.


  1. Great review. Interesting thought about having one or two loose ends

    1. Thanks, Empi. It's not my normal, but I think with the scope of the issues, the book ended too perfectly.

  2. Great review! It sounds like a lovely book. But yeah, I agree, a too perfect ending can definitely make a story feel off. Glad you enjoyed it outside of that!


I love reading your comments.
