Bedside Manners (2015)

 

Therapist Brook Ogden is back in book two of the Breakup Doctor series. After her fiance leaves her before their wedding, Brook does the unthinkable and hooks up with a client, Chip Santana, and they are promptly arrested for indecent exposure. Now trying to get her life back on track and dating another guy called Ben, Brook thinks this is her year to strengthen her career as a relationship counsellor. Brook and her best friend, Sasha, come up with a brilliant idea of setting up group counselling sessions so she can reach more people. While she is helping one of her clients, she runs into Chip again and he asks her for help with his love life. She thinks this is the perfect opportunity to rid herself of the uncontrollable feelings she has for him. But will she actually rid herself of those feelings or fall more in love, even though she has a great man actually willing and able to love her? This book includes some laugh-out-loud breakups that makes you think that maybe your own crazy breakup isn't so crazy anymore. (CG)

   

The Breakup Doctor (2014)

 

Brook Ogden is living her life until everything blows up in her face. As a relationship coach she has worked hard on building up her client base. She arrives at work one day to find her building being demolished; her mother is leaving her dad; her latest relationship has ended with 'I can't do this anymore' and her newly purchased home is a rebuild nightmare. Step by step Brook must navigate all these obstacles to rebuild her life, including her friendships. Each step leads her closer to a different life and a lot of self-discovery. The authors takes you on a rollercoaster of ''oh no, don't do that' as Brook falls into a new job as the Breakup Doctor (a weekly news column) and new clients while recreating herself. Brook finds out a great deal about herself as she works with her clients and their messy break-ups. Each person she meets, she learns more about what she has done and this time she is ready to listen and learn. This is a funny novel that has the reader cheering Brook on the sidelines to make good decisions. However, to me the characters didn't come across as anything more than one-dimensional. Indeed the book felt like a screenplay that needed to be fleshed out by actors performing it on stage. (MS)
