Seven Rules for Breaking Hearts

St. Martin’s Griffin. May 2023. 352p. ISBN 9781250861825. pap. $17. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
DEBUT Margo Anderson reluctantly finds herself on a ferry to her once beloved Catalina to celebrate her best friend and co-podcaster Jo’s destination wedding while possibly toasting the end of her career. It will be difficult to have a podcast about eternal singledom once your co-host is married. Making matters worse, Margo is the maid of honor, and the best man is her nemesis Declan Walsh, whom Margo will be seeing for the first time since she wrapped up her nerdy, tuba-playing high-school years. Of course, Declan has transformed, unfairly, from a hot popular kid into a spectacular adult. Besides being certifiably sexy, Declan is also a technology Luddite, which annoys the mildly famous social-media maven Margo, who has to decide if she’s willing to use him for the next phase of her podcast.
VERDICT Romance readers who enjoy single-point-of-view enemies-to-lovers romances will enjoy this solid if predictable debut from Miller. Recommended as a read-alike to The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood.
