The Divorce Club
A bitter divorce from a two-timing husband leaves Sarah with no money to fend for her daughter, but she won't be beaten, so she opens The Divorce Club, a meeting place for women who want to divorce their cheating husbands, but don't know how.
Soon things start to go seriously wrong. A fake client and her rising interest in him isn't Sarah's only worry; there's a...more
Examples of weak conflicts:
Sarah has a stalker. When he sends her text messages she acts strange, but she won’t tell anyone about it. That bothered me. It wasn’t believable.
Jamie has a secret. When Jamie tells Sarah he wants to confess something, she says “tell me later.” That annoyed me. It was artificial. And then later when she found out, she was furious, stomped off, and would not let him explain - not ...more
The premise is a bit strange. Sarah, a qualified psychologist starts a business to help women who want to divorce their husbands. She offers advice like, ‘stop shaving your legs’, ‘nag him’ and, ‘put on weight’. So here am I expecting a book about empowerment and women overcoming difficult circumstances and what I get is a book about manipulating men.

Had all the aspects I love, lots of suspense, an interesting plot, so I am looking forward to reading her next book. I would definitely recommend this book to the people who enjoy suspense.

I felt like broken glass and vowed to myself at that time never to give my heart away lightly. Ever. If I had read such a book at the time of my divorce, I think I would ha ...more
While it had a story that could've gone in that direction, this book didn't make me feel warm and gooey inside!
Also, I felt there wasn't a smooth flow from one scene/chapter to another. Definitely not even close to being a really good chicklit novel.
I've read much better. Gemma Burgess is way better than this. Hell, even Julie James (while her stories focus more on the romance) is more entertaining.
This is just my opinion, I really don't think it deserves the ratin ...more

Her husband leaves her for a younger woman. With no money left and a difficult daughter on her neck, she decides to open the divorce club with her best friend. Things were supposed to take off, but as is usual trouble never is far away:
4 different women, each with their own problems. Sexy businessman Jamie, who insists on joining. A secret stalker, who tries to ruin her business plans. Family Drama with h ...more
I love the main character, Sarah. She is funny, witty and down to earth divorcee who loves her clients so much that she would go over her limitations just to help them. And of course there's no good story without a love interest, Jamie. A fake client to pretends to be on te process of divorcing his wife and eventually falling for the main character.
A fun light re ...more
Highly recommend this one
There were part of this story that I loved and there were certain parts that really bugged me. I enjoyed the mother, teen daughter relationship after a divorce, it was very realistic. I adored Jamie, the hero. The ex-husband's role in the book and his manipulation tactics were fine. What I had trouble with were some of the advises given by a registered psychologists to the members of her club. It made the book cheezy.
What I didn't like...the heroine for a being a life coach she lacked a sense of self empowerment. She gave in to her daughter 's whinning, her best friend was down right rude and really didn't exactly act in her best interest.
I finished the book because her clients made it worth while.
