Never Google Heartbreak by Emma Garcia

 When her fiance Rob breaks off their engagement for the third time, Viv does what any girl would do - she Googles heartbreak. Confronted by tales of misery, she decides to set-up her own self-help website for the broken-hearted. But as Viv passes through the three essential stages of grief (denial, vodka, disastrous haircut), she becomes determined that it's not too late to try and get Rob back. When things get out of hand after a drunken declaration of love at an extremely inappropriate moment, Viv's scruffy, tequila-swilling best friend Max is there to pick up the pieces. Viv starts to realise that maybe the real thing has been under her nose all this time, and now - one ex and a massive error of judgement later - she has to face the question: What's the craziest thing you'll do for love? 
 Viv is planning her wedding, she's sure that her fiancĂ©, Rob, will actually marry her this time. When he cancels again she leaves him. Viv never actually wants to separate, she's only moving out of their apartment because she thinks that will make Rob change his mind. When this doesn't happen she's devastated. She googles heartbreak and discovers there are a lot of people who are feeling exactly the same. Her friend Max is there when she needs him and he's quite good at rescuing Viv when she has gotten herself into some kind of mess again. Meanwhile Viv starts her own website for those who have a broken heart. Finally she's getting over Rob, but it might be too late. She's missed the real love that had been in her life for a very long time. She does everything she can to make things right again, but will she actually succeed?
Viv is insecure. She doesn't feel good about herself and during most of the book she's sad and sobbing. This could have made a terrible main character, but Emma Garcia doesn't let that happen. As Viv isn't the most sensible and handy person she often finds herself in awkward situations. Most of them are pretty hilarious. Even though Viv is a little bit self-centered she's kind, funny and very likable. I read this book with a constant smile on my face. I enjoyed it from page one right until the end. This isn't a standard love story, there are a lot of unexpected and comical twists, which are making this novel really good. Sometimes I even felt ashamed on Viv's behalf. All the things that can go wrong actually go wrong in this book. Never Google Heartbreak is absolutely wonderful and I enjoyed it very much!


  1. Viv sounds like a character that I would connect with, I am pretty insecure as well, and find the awkward except it usually doesn't turn out so funny for me.
