March 2013 Debut of the Month.
A bittersweet, refreshingly honest and achingly funny romantic comedy. After her boyfriend calls off their engagement, for the third time, Viv creates a website for the heartbroken hoping to offer help and support for the world wide web (and herself). If you enjoy books by Sophie Kinsella or Lindsey Kelk - or were a fans of the film Bridesmaids (how can you not be!) - then this book is worth more than a second look.
A refreshingly honest, achingly funny read for fans of Bridesmaids, Caitlin Moran, and Pinot Grigio. 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? Readers of Lindsey Kelk, Sophie Kinsella and Paige Toon won't be able to put this down. Never has heartbreak been so hilarious...

'So funny and so true. Reading NEVER GOOGLE HEARTBREAK made me nod in recognition and cringe at remembered embarrassments but most of all it left me smiling like a natter with a really good friend.'
'NEVER GOOGLE HEARTBREAK has to be one of the many debut novels this year I would certainly want to read. It sounds absolutely fantastic - the blurb promises so much fun, it almost sounds like a Lindsey Kelk novel, to be honest. The concept of the book is really captivating, drawing you in and the gorgeous cover is doing wonders! (It's my iPod wallpaper now!) So excited for this one!'
'There are some debut novels that you can really excited about, and Emma Garcia's brand new novel NEVER GOOGLE HEARTBREAK is one such novel ... It promises to be a hilarious read, and I do love a book that can make me laugh, not to mention one that has a fab cover like this!'
