28-year-old Cassie Moore has always played it safe, living
life according to a meticulously organized Master
Plan. But when she loses her Perfect Job and finds her
fiancé in bed with his ex on the same day, it's clear that
The Plan has failed her. She awakens the next day from
a drunken stupor to discover that she's booked herself
on a six-month trip to Buenos Aires. She speaks not a
word of Spanish, but she's already emailed the news to
everyone she knows, so there's no turning back. Once
in Buenos Aires, Cassie is reluctantly seduced by this
glorious city. Her exuberant landlady introduces her to
the handsome but haughty Mateo, a man Cassie clashes
with right from the start. She soon befriends other
lovelorn travelers and together, they start a "Brokenhearts
Club" at a local bar, attracting a cast of characters
that includes Dan, a sweet handsome man who lives as
carefully and predictably as Cassie. Before long, Cassie's
making a new plan: 1. Learn Spanish. 2. Stop obsessing
about impossible Mateo and fall for perfect-on-paper
Dan. But staying on track isn't so simple anymore and
Cassie finally realizes that sometimes life--and love--
defies her best-laid plans.
Obsessive-compulsive Seattle Web worker Cassandra Moore has a life plan (and many meticulous revisions thereof), but that's before she loses her job, apartment and fiancé in one fell swoop. One martini-induced revelation later, Cassie books a planless six months in Buenos Aires. Though a formulaic tale of rejection rebound, Morrison's debut is firmly digital age: Cassie blogs her heart away, collecting a global network of similarly emotionally bruised souls, giving birth to the Buenos Aires Broken Hearts Club. There will be handsome men (Argentinean and American), sage girlfriends and even a melancholic political group of mothers whose cause Cassie champions. Finally, after a series of predictable misunderstandings, sensitive local artist Marco will attempt to teach Cassie to trust in love again.

Posted April 19, 2010 by Jenn M , S. KoreaThis book was funny and sexy. I really liked the setting and the characters. The end got a little cheesy but if you don't like that kind of thing your in the wrong genre.
6 . Great Weekend read
Posted March 15, 2010 by mc , miami, flI really enjoyed this book... I'd definitely recommend it. This is great for when you just want to escape... not a serious book at all. Great for a vacation or just a weekend read.
7 . Lovely Light Read
Posted March 14, 2010 by Book Lover , FraminghamA lovely, light read. It starts out slowly, but once she leaves Seattle it draws you in and keeps you until the final page. It will leave you itching to travel to Argentina.
8 . Awesome Read.
Posted March 02, 2010 by Christina H. , Farmington, NMSuch a great book, I laughed out loud in several spots. The author developes such full and wonderful characters, it pulls you in. Better be a fast reader or have some time on your hands because you will not want to put this book down!
9 . Fun, light read
Posted February 28, 2010 by Jo , MinneapolisStarted out a little slow (and redundant -- too much time spent on "the Plan"), but picked up once the character arrived in Buenos Aires. I'm not a big fan of the romantic novel genre, but this was a fun chick-lit read.
10 . Fun and Honest
Posted February 25, 2010 by GJZ , Hood RiverEmotionally honest and lots of fun to read. I want to go to Buenos Aires!
