A perceptive mixture of around 60 sometimes-scandalous relationship tales, Breakup Cocktail is made up of a large measure of reality and a splash of wit. Every tale deals with a different situation or emotion and each one is followed by a shot of appropriate tough-love advice. Do you miss your ex so much you see their ghost sitting next to you watching T.V.? If so, read Taking the Ted out of Haunted for an exorcism of the mind. Do you brush your teeth with their worn-out toothbrush? Marty’s tale offers advice to cleanse the palate of someone else’s DNA. Would you sell your soul to spend one more day with your old love? What if they stole your mutual friends or bought their lover an engagement ring on your credit card? Have you ever cried for a week straight or been so angry you ate and drank yourself into oblivion? Quentin is bored with his wife so he buys her a long, red wig. Her new look seduces them both, but in this wry, humorous tale of dressing up your unsuspecting wife to look like your girlfriend, she exposes his scheme and calls him in for a little auburn revenge. In another tale, Alice wants to remain friends with her ex, but Keith won’t agree unless she becomes friends with his new girlfriend as well. So what’s a girl to do? Both easy to read and hard to put down, these tales will take the reader on a breakup journey that crosses over cheating and revenge; passes loneliness and depression by, and reaches recovery—with a smile on every page.

About the Author:

Barbara Kingsley Singer is a native of Leeds, England who used her past experiences and hardships to form Breakup Cocktail, 5 Parts Laughter, 1 Part Healing and a Twist of Revenge, her first book. Originally conceived as a self-help guide, it was transformed into tales of wit and optimism, as the lighter side of life nudged away the gloom from a usually depressing subject. Educated in both England and the United States, she received her paralegal degree in New Jersey. Her published work includes diverse local press items in both countries. A member of the International Women’s Writing Guild (IWWG) in New York, she lives in New Jersey with her partner and still remains close with her ex-husband’s family. She is currently working on other life tales that are sure to offer the same honest truth and humor that shaped Breakup Cocktail.

Review:

Singer's debut collection of vignettes about the lighter side of romantic breakups.There's some funny stuff here...some of Singer's descriptions are original and picturesque. The book provides a wide range of stories of varying taste. In one, a cheating husband brings a pie home to his wife, claiming it was made by a friend. After they both eat it, he confesses that his girlfriend made it and asks his wife to clean the dish... Aesop's Fables meets Erma Bombeck meets Sarah Silverman...-Kirkus Reviews
