Never Google Heartbreak by Emma Garcia

When her fiancé 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?

After losing my reading mojo this book has well and truly found it again for me. Never Google Heartbreak is Emma Garcia’s debut novel and what a way to enter the world of fiction. Viv is heartbroken after her fiancé announces that he can’t go through with their up and coming wedding ( for the third time!) To try and seek help from others she googles heartbreak but when she doesn't find what she is looking for she decides to launch her own self-help website for the heartbroken! Will she be able to get over her ex and find love again or will she do everything in her power to get her ex Rob back?

This book was so addictive I didn't put it down. It helps that the authors writing style keeps you gripped throughout the whole of the book. It is a light easy read full of humour and romance. Viv is a witty character who you will laugh and sympathise with and at points cringe at. From the start I couldn't see what it was that she saw in her fiancé Rob he had every characteristics in a man that would set off all the warning signs. I loved her two best friends Lucy and Max. Lucy is as mad as Viv and the gorgeous Max seems to be a little more grounded but he won my heart straight away!

Parts of the book were predictable but this doesn't effect the enjoyment of the book. The chapter regarding the wedding was both cringe worthy and witty and has to be my favourite part of the book. I loved the book and was surprised how quickly I was flying through this my only thing is I felt the ending was a little rushed.

I would definitely recommend this book it is a great debut novel and I look forward to reading more books by this author in the future.
