Book Review: No Cure for the Broken Hearted by Kenneth Rosenberg

Title: No Cure for the Broken Hearted
Author: Kenneth Rosenberg
Genre: Fiction
Format: Kindle  
Year Published: 2010
Source: I was sent a copy of this book for review.
 

No Cure for the Broken Hearted by Kenneth Rosenberg tells the love story of Katherine Spencer and Nick Bancroft. Katherine and Nick meet when they are teenagers during a summer vacation and fall deeply in love. Nick comes from a wealthy family, however, and his mother does not approve of the match.

After the summer is over, Nick breaks Katherine’s heart by never contacting her again. Even though she sends him letters, he doesn’t respond. Twelve years later, Katherine is a successful young architect in New York when Nick suddenly re-enters her life. Nick wants Katherine to design a house for him. But why? Katherine doesn’t do residential design. She soon realizes that she has never stopped loving Nick. He was her first love — her one and only. But does Nick feel the same way?
Katherine must travel around the world to solve the mystery of her relationship with Nick. Both Katherine and Nick discover that it is important to find out what you really want in life .

There is no sex in this book and little violence, so if those things bother you, never fear.

I really like this story. It is an enjoyable easy-to-read romance. The innocence of first love is deftly described, and the answers to questions that had been baffling Katherine for a long time are answered. If you love romance, get this book!

“If you find a book you love, do you hunt down other books by the same author?”
 
A. Oh, yes! I will read everything by that author that I can find! I’m very loyal.

Kindle Love


I recently acquired an Amazon Kindle and I love it! It’s funny, but not that long ago I swore that I would never have an e-reader. I love real books — the feel of them and turning the pages and everything about them. But I live in a very small apartment and was starting to feel the need to simplify my life. My apartment looks like a branch of the local library.

I also am being offered many books for review for this blog, and I was getting even more books to fill up my crowded space. I finally started to realize that I really needed a Kindle so that most of the authors sending me books to review could send them to me electronically.


So I took some of my tax refund and bought a Kindle at Best Buy. It is marvelous. Within a few minutes the author’s book is on my Kindle! It saves them the time and expense of shipping a physical book.

I’m sure that the other eReaders are wonderful, too. I have played around with the Nook at Barnes and Noble, but I decided on a Kindle because so many books are available in that format. Most classic novels written before 1923 are free!



Don’t get me wrong. I still “pledge to read the printed word” as it says in my sidebar. But many books are still not available in eReader format.

I just love sitting in my recliner and having all these books on my Kindle for easy access. As a matter of fact, I think that I am reading more books than ever.
