Review: How to Mend a Broken Heart by Amy Andrews

How To Mend A Broken Heart
Amy Andrews

The Doctor Dries Her Tears

Facing her estranged husband, Fletcher, was always going to be heartbreaking for nurse Tessa King. Especially as Fletcher has one last favor to ask—with his mother critically ill, he needs Tessa to pretend tragedy never tore their marriage apart. Impossible when your husband is the one man it hurts your heart to touch…but the one man you can't resist…



I think this book should really be called "How to Mend a Broken Heart If You Are Willing to Wait 10 Years and Be Around Someone Sad ALL THE TIME." Seriously. When I pick up a series romance, I want a quick, lighthearted get-away-from-it all read. This book was so sad and heavy, it was a bit draining to get through. I don't mind some tragedy in a book, but for it to be the only topic in the book - mentioned on every other page, it is just too much. And not what I want in a romance novel. I just felt sorry for both protagonists and never fully related to them as a hero/heroine. I did enjoy the romance in this book, which was nice - very sweet and touching. It had very likable characters that have been dealt a crappy hand in life, but there's only so much of another person's tragedy you can read and still find yourself enjoying the book.

How to Mend a Broken Heart: 2.5/5 stars.
Cover: 3/5 Stars
Audience rating: PG-13 (mild sexual situations, adult themes)
