The Broken Hearts Book Club
Blurb: Secrets never stay buried for long…
Lucy Harper has always been good at one thing: running from her past. But when her beloved Nana Lily passes away she has no choice except to return to the one place in the world she most wants to avoid…
Luna Bay hasn’t changed much in the eight years she has spent in London. The little Yorkshire village is still just as beautiful, but the new pub landlord is a gorgeous addition to the scenery!
Lucy only intended to stay for a day, yet when she discovers that Nana Lily has not only left her a cottage but also ‘The Broken Hearts Book Club’, Lucy is intrigued. Her Nana never have mentioned the club and Lucy can’t wait to get started, but walking into her first meeting she is more aware than ever that her past is finally catching up with her.
One way or another, Lucy must finally face the secrets she’s kept buried for so long – or spend the rest of her life on the run…
Lynsey James was born in Fife in 1991 and has been telling people how to spell her name ever since. She’s an incurable bookworm who loves nothing more than getting lost in a good story with memorable characters. She started writing when she was really young and credits her lovely Grandad- and possibly a bump on the head from a Mr Frosty machine- with her love of telling stories. She used to write her own episodes of Friends and act them out in front of her family (in fact she’s sure she put Ross and Rachel together first!)
A careers adviser at school once told Lynsey writing wasn’t a “good option” and for a few years, she believed her. She tried a little bit of everything, including make-up artistry, teaching and doing admin for a chocolate fountain company. The free chocolate was brilliant. When Lynsey left her job a couple of years ago, she started writing full-time while she looked for another one. As soon as she started working on her story, Lynsey fell in love and decided to finally pursue her dream. She haven’t looked back since.
When Lynsey’s not writing, eating cake or drinking tea, she’s daydreaming about the day Dylan O’Brien FINALLY realises they’re meant to be together. It’ll happen one day…

My Dream Cast for The Broken Hearts Book Club
Lucy- Sarah George
I saw Sarah when I was watching Hollyoaks one day and just thought ‘yup, that’s Lucy!’ I can just imagine her playing her in a movie of The Broken Hearts Book Club and portraying her kind, sweet nature. She’s fantastic and looks exactly how I’d imagined Lucy to look.
Jake- Sam Claflin
I had so many guys in mind for Jake when I was writing The Broken Hearts Book Club but I eventually settled on this bad boy. LOOK AT THAT FACE. Seeing him in Love, Rosie sealed the deal for me: he’d be absolutely perfect as Jake, landlord of The Purple Partridge who has a bit of a troubled past…
Elle- Ashley Benson
I know I picked Ashley for Gwen in Just the Way You Are, but I love her so much that I’ve chosen her for Elle in The Broken Hearts Book Club too!
George- Craig Gallivan
I’m just spoiling you with gorgeous men in this post, aren’t I? I don’t know about you, but I reckon Craig would make a great George. I can just imagine him playing Lucy’s kind and loveable best friend who falls head-over-heels for Elle.
What do you guys think? Who would you have playing the different characters in the story? Let me know!
