Breakup Cocktail: 5 Parts Laughter, 1 Part Healing and a Twist of Revenge

Barbara Kingsley Singer. CreateSpace, $12.99 paper (280p) ISBN 978-1-4800-3785-4
The events surrounding failed romances form entire libraries of books. Singer attempts to mix together many of these stories—the ultimately dissatisfying cheating that can end a relationship; struggling with a partner's pornography collection; ferreting out signs your partner is cheating; being unwilling to let go after a relationship has run its course—in a fairly watered-down cocktail. While some of her advice may be decent, it's almost impossible to find, buried beneath clichés and trite morality tales. Readers who manage to make it through this book will wonder why they bothered. The lessons, such as they are, feel too familiar and the narrative meanders from topic to topic without ever becoming empowering or informative.
