The Break-Up Agency by Sheila McClure


The Break-Up Agency by Sheila McClure is a most delightful contemporary novel that will leave you smiling.

The novel is about friendship and kind hearts. We need those around us who will always be there for us. There are some very kind hearts who just want to make the world a better place.

We hear of mission trips to bring medicine to those who have none. There are dangers lurking.

There is a beautiful dog, Gus, who is used as a PAT dog, helping anxious children who will open up when he is near. Gus’ boundless energy and affection really fill the characters and the reader with love.

The novel also has a character with a physical disability who does not let it hold him back.

All the characters were warm and welcoming. An air of love and friendship permeated the whole novel.

Family is important. Family is not necessarily those related by blood, but those who love us throughout all the seasons of life.

I absolutely loved The Break-Up Agency. It was a wonderful, warm read that I can highly recommend.

I received a free copy from Rachel’s Random Resources for a blog tour. A favourable review was not required. All opinions are my own.


The Break-Up Agency

Ellie Shaw loves love. Unfortunately, she’s also an expert in break-ups. When a friend needs help with her ‘too nice to dump’ boyfriend, Ellie agrees to help. What she doesn’t expect is for American Dan to be kind, caring, to love dogs and look like a Disney hero. In other words, completely too good to be true.

She lets him down with grace and, encouraged by her friends, sets up Softer Landings, offering kinder, gentler break-ups.

A year later American Dan reappears in her life. With a new girlfriend. One who also decides he’s not the one for her.

The team hatch a plan to let Dan down easy, but while Ellie attempts to lead him gently away, real sparks start to fly. There’s just one big problem she can’t ignore. Can Ellie reveal that their romance is the result of an elaborate con without it feeling like a huge betrayal? Or is she about to star in the most awful dumping of all time?
