Book (Mama) Review: Chose the Wrong Guy, Gave Him the Wrong Finger

By Marlene Engel

Moments before Quinn was to walk down the aisle to marry her high school sweetheart, she was given some news that changed everything! Frank, the brother of her soon to be husband, pulled her aside and told her that her fiancé had been cheating on her. What was supposed to be the happiest day of Quinn’s life was quickly turning into a nightmare! But that didn’t stop her from walking down the aisle. Instead of saying, “I do” when she got to the alter she craned her arm back and deposited a hard smack across Burke’s face! Then she turned and ran out of the church. Instead of Burke running after her, it was his brother (and best man), Frank, going after her instead. They didn’t just run out of the church, they ran all the way to Vegas. But their sordid encounter didn’t last either. Quinn knew that she couldn’t start a relationship with the brother of her former fiancé. Not to mention it was Burke that she loved, not Frank.

Fast forward ten years, where Quinn still resides in her hometown of Middleburg, Virginia and works in her family’s bridal shop. Isn’t it ironic how the woman who never had the chance to go through with her wedding spends each day helping excited brides to be? One day, Dottie, Burke and Frank’s grandmother, walks into the bridal shop. She announces that she is getting married and is in need of a dress. If that news wasn’t enough to surprise Quinn, what she was about to hear next was sure to throw her for a loop. Dottie informed Quinn that Burke and Frank would be coming home to not only attend the wedding, but to help sell the farm that Quinn had always loved and that held many memories of her and Burke. Could Quinn handle seeing the two men who have played such significant roles in her life? Would seeing her former fiancé be too much for her to handle? And what about the farm? Could she deal with seeing someone else buy a place that holds much sentimental value to her? Come find out as Quinn re-evaluates her past and figures out what to do with her future.

Chose The Wrong Guy, Gave Him The Wrong Finger is another amazing book by the very talented Beth Harbison. If the title alone isn’t enough to make you want to run out and get this book, it also has a great story line and cast of characters. Beth Harbison has a way of taking a great story and combining just the right amount of humor. The characters were all so different, yet fun and enjoyable. I really loved this book and didn’t want it to end. I would definitely recommend it to others. It’s a fun book, with great characters, and a story that will keep you wanting more. Once again, Beth Harbison writes a book worthy of five stars!

Thanks to St. Martin's Press for the book in exchange for an honest review.

Great Review. I know Beth's publicist at St Martin's and when I saw that RT gave this book a 2 (disgraceful) I asked for a copy and I interviewed Beth when the book was released.
You're review was right on, I don't know what the "expert" reviewer was on but she obviously wasn't reading this book
Here's my post if you're interested-

Thanks Debbie! I have no idea how someone could give that book a 2. I knew everyone has their own opinion, but I think that Beth Harbison is such a talented author!

By the way, great review! Thanks for the compliment on mine!
