Intimate and raw, The Pursuit of Miss Heartbreak Hotel is a story about friends, family, old habits you can’t quite shake, and first love you never see coming. Bursting with undeniable swagger and neo-beat slang, Moe Bonneau's stunning debut novel has a language and rhythm all its own. Ours is an age-old tale of two betties, apple-Jacks forever, when suddenly one goes ace gorgeous and then, naturally, massive popular. Said popular betty ditches other unsaid, unpopular betty for superhit cool crowd. Girls don’t speak again for four years, until a chance meeting reunites them . . . What do you do when Ms. Ancient History comes waltzing back into your life? If you're Lu Butler, dodging sweet but clueless boys while secretly crushing hard on girls, you fall.

In her effortlessly winning novels Tulip Fever and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Deborah Moggach charmed readers and critics alike with her generous prose and hilarious dialogue. With Heartbreak Hotel, Moggach has triumphed once again. When retired actor Buffy decides to leave London and move to rural Wales, he has no idea what he is letting himself in for.Â Â In possession of a run-down bed and breakfast that leans more toward the shabby than the chic and is, quite literally, miles from nowhere, Buffy realizes that he needs to fill the beds—and fast. Otherwise, his vision of the pastoral countryside will go up in smoke.Â Enter a motley collection of guests: Harold, whose wife has run off with a younger woman; Amy, who’s been unexpectedly dumped by her (not-so) nebbishy boyfriend and Andy, the hypochondriac postman whose girlfriend is much too much for him to handle. But under Buffy’s watchful eye, this disparate group of strangers finds that they have more in common than perhaps they first thought.Â A charming romantic comedy that will captivate even the most determined urbanite, Heartbreak Hotel is a supreme entertainment.

Under such circumstances, you can only approach her at your own risk and peril. Well, my commiserations. Your teenager, or even an ex-teenager/young adult/adult has taken his or for her first step into the Heartbreak Hotel. This book is for all those people, who want to know more about how relationships can be sustained and preserved, and also how to cope with heartbreak in a sensible manner without any help of psychologists to tell you what is wrong with you, and what you did wrong, which made him leave. Also, this book is going to give you a number of other relationships, family, and human relationships and the reason why they are still so powerful and necessary in the human psyche and social scheme of things. Now, let us have a little historical insight in the psychology of human relationships and emotions. Millions of years ago, when man accepted the fact that he had to have some social rules which would govern human conduct and human behavior, that was when he set out conventional rules for relationships and the interaction between the members of a family, the members of the tribe, clan, and then the members of society. The relationship between close blood relatives, those bound together with genetic ties were going to be totally different and apart from the relationships that one would have in the making of relationships with people with other unrelated genetic ties.
