From Beth Harbison, the New York Times bestselling author of When in Doubt, Add Butter and Shoe Addicts Anonymous, comes Chose the Wrong Guy, Gave Him the Wrong Finger , a delightful new novel that will make you look at second chances in a whole new way.

Ten years ago, Quinn Barton was on her way to the altar to marry Burke Morrison, her high school sweetheart, when something derailed her. Rather, some one derailed her--the Best Man who at the last minute begged her to reconsider the marriage. He told her that Burke had been cheating on her. For a long time. Quinn, stunned, hurt, and confused, struggled with the obligation of fulfilling her guests' expectations--providing a wedding--and running for her life.

She chose running. With the Best Man. Who happened to be Burke's brother, Frank.

That relationship didn't work either. How could it, when Quinn had been engaged to, in love with, Frank's brother? Quinn opted for neither, and, instead, spends the next seventeen years working in her family's Middleburg, Virginia, bridal shop, Talk of the Gown , where she subconsciously does penance for the disservice she did to marriage.

But when the two men return to town for another wedding, old anger, hurt, and passion resurface. Just because you've traded the good guy for the bad guy for no guy doesn't mean you have to stay away from love for the rest of your life, does it? Told with Beth Harbison's flair for humor and heart, Chose the Wrong Guy will keep you guessing and make you believe in the possibilities of love.

Checked out Nov 2018 - read part of the novel and took it back. Not what I thought it would be.

Unfortunately a lot of hand wringing, angst and indecision that I found eerily similar to other novels by Beth Harbison. I did have to read to the end to see what, if anything, was ever decided by the guilt ridden, stuck in the past character Quinn. I did like how the novel ended, but the practical side of me questions a lot of unanswered issues that would still have to be resolved.

An enjoyable fluffy romance with plenty of swoony moments and dashes of humour throughout. While Quinn can be a bit irritating with her refusal to let go of her past, watching her rediscover who she is and what she really wants was worth it. I also loved her gay best friend, Glenn, who runs the specialty wine and cheese shop next door. If you like these kinds of romances, this one won't disappoint.

Not her best book. Stalled badly in the middle, and since this is chick lit, that is not the best scenario. Harbison's earlier novels were more fun.

I could see the ending coming from a mile away but that didn’t matter. A great “chick lit” title that was the perfect read for a vacation by the lake.
