Ashleigh's boyfriend of two years, Michael, unceremoniously dumps her on Facebook and promptly takes up with a beautiful woman from Rio. Ashleigh loses her mind--though her absolutely rabid marriage fixation may have done most of the damage. She can't get over him, driving away friends, spending money on worthless schemes to get him back, losing her job and finally moving back in with her parents when she burns down her flat. Ashleigh does everything to get over her lost Mr Right, when she really needs a little revenge.
As all of her friends and family point out, Ashleigh is the woman who just can't stop moaning over her lost love, and some readers can probably sympathize if they have been ruthlessly and inexplicably dumped. This is a well trod chick lit track, and though the author has some original ideas about social media, dating and humiliation and the benefits of younger, sweeter men, marriage-maddened Ashleigh is a worn out trope. This is for devoted chick lit readers.
BEEN DUMPED? GET MAD. BUT NOT THIS MAD.
Have you ever had your heart broken? How did you get over it?
If a pint of ice cream cheered you up and you were able to delete his number and start again then . . .
You’re a weirdo and this book is not for you.
But if you reacted with denial, begging, or a spot of casual witchcraft, then you’ve come to the right place. This is one woman’s journey from love to lunacy and back again. If you ever recall past heartbreaks with acute embarrassment and an urge to go into hiding, this will make you feel better. Sure, you may have sent his new girlfriend a bunch of dead roses, but did you spend a grand on psychic hot-lines and a voodoo curse?
