"A sweet, effervescent rom com. Readers will be enchanted!" — Jenn Bennett, author of Alex, Approximately

When the perpetually single daughter of a magical matchmaker reconnects with the boy she's pretended to be in a relationship with for over a year, she may finally have met her match.

Imogen Finch has never been in love... despite being the daughter of a matchmaker. Her only relationship to date was a fake one with a near stranger named August Tate that she made up to stop people from asking about her love life. To fill the void, she's channeled her obsession with love into her passion for photography, using her ability to literally see the rose-gold glow of a person in love to capture stunning portraits.

But when her adviser says her photography portfolio is "one note", she's desperate to diversify. After hearing her forever crush, Ren, was recently dumped, she decides to photograph the broken-hearted, starting with him. Imogen is hopeful she'll finally find love and get the right photos. So, the last thing she expects is for the real-life version of her fake boyfriend to show up in town asking why they "broke up". Before she knows it she's juggling August and Ren and falling in love for the first time in her life.

"A sweet, effervescent rom com. Readers will be enchanted!" — Jenn Bennett, author of Alex, Approximately

"With a charming cast, artistic eye, and its perfectly imperfect "love rules," Susan Bishop Crispell's The Broken Hearts Club glows rose-gold. Readers will root for Imogen, wish August would slide into their DMs, and crave a Frankenbiscuit long after the last page!" — K. L. Walther, bestselling author of The Summer of Broken Rules

"The Broken Hearts Club is very much like the Frankenbiscuit from its own pages—dreamy first love wrapped in a big lie topped with some bad decisions and sprinkled with complications, served with a side of great banter and one incredible best friend. You will not regret ordering." — Samantha Markum, author of This May End Badly and You Wouldn't Dare
