"Cassandra Kingís 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. Isnít it typical that some people have advice for everyone but
canít get their own life in gear? I absolutely adored this book!
