Publisher's Summary

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. She's 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.

An intresting story...

I enjoyed this story. It's not your typical romance, a relief maybe after reading to many. If your looking for a perspective of a romance after your average romantic age with all the baggage of age this is a really interesting read.

This audio was the worst I have ever heard. Not only the person narrating it but the whole content was aweful would not recommend it to the most bored person in the world.
