A heartwarming novel about friendship, family, and finding love in the Facebook Age--not to mention the perils, pitfalls, and dubious pleasures of being a modern young single woman--from Erin Duffy, the author of Bond Girl.

Six months ago, Abby's life fell apart for the entire world to see. Her longtime boyfriend-turned-fianc#65533;, Ben, unceremoniously dumped her--on Facebook--while she was trying on dresses for the big day.

When the usual remedies--multiple pints of Ben & Jerry's, sweatpants, and a comfy couch--fail to work their magic, her best friend, Grace, devises a plan to get Abby back on her game. She and Abby are going to escape Boston and its reminders of Ben and head to Newport for the summer. There, in a quaint rented cottage by the sea, the girls will enjoy cool breezes, cocktails, and crowds of gorgeous men.

But no matter where they go, Abby and Grace discover that in this era of social media--when seemingly everyone is preserving every last detail of their lives online--there is no real escape. Dating has never been easy. But now that the rules are more blurred than ever, how will they find true love? And even if they do, can romance stand a chance when a girl's every word and move can go viral with a single click?

I only gave this novel a One-star review. The characters were not entertaining and rather annoying. I couldn't connect with any of them and it wasn't even a good beach read, I ended up skipping half the novel and reading the last chapter and understood everything. Meaning not much happened throughout the book

I picked up this title on a whim, thinking it might be a breezy and relaxing read, but it was actually quite depressing. I personally would not recommend it, but to each their own.
