Editorial Reviews

This sweet story from Janowitz is about growing up, letting go, and figuring out what your future should be. The series of hard knocks Jo suffers shake her out of her all-too-comfortable rut in a way that makes her a heroine worth following. Recommended for new adult romance fans." - Library Journal"Very entertaining." - Chick Lit Club"The Lonely Hearts Club is a great light read, meant for anyone who loves a good romantic story with some dramatic flair. The more I think about this story and contemplate it, the more I realized just how much it even inspired me. Taking your pain and turning it into something positive is very empowering and a great message." - Novel Escapes"I will definitely have to go and discover more of Janowitz's writing, she has that easy, enjoyable writing style I love and I adored the music refrences, and song titles for the chapter names, it was a fantastic read." - Girls Love To Read"From the opening line, I was hooked. I liked how the story was delivered, and how imperfect (Jo) was. There are so many other things I could mention that added up to The Lonely Hearts Club being an interesting and relatable reading experience but then I don't want to spoil it for you. All I can say is Brenda did a good job in writing such a good story and fans of coming of age novels will surely be delighted by this one." - Itching For Books"Brenda Janowitz does it again! The Lonely Hearts Club is pure fun!" - Traveling With T"Brenda Janowitz's newest has heart, great details, and a main character who does a lot of growing. Great read!" - Rather Be Reading "
