Pages: 384
Publication Date: July 9th, 2013

It has been ten years since Quinn Barton left her fiance, Burke Morrison, at the altar and ran off with his brother, Frank.  In her defense, she did it only after discovering he had been cheating on her.  Needless to say her fling with Frank did not last and even though she earns her living by working with brides, she swears she  will never get married.  Then one day a special bride walks in her store.  Frank and Burke's Grandmother, Dottie, is getting married and the boys are coming home to help get the ranch ready to sell. And before she knows it,  Quinn is back in the middle of the Morrison boys with all sorts of unresolved feelings.  Enter Quinn's best friend, Glenn.  Even though she won't admit it, he sees how miserable Quinn has been and has concocted some tasks for Quinn to complete to help her brighten and broaden her world, with or without the Morrison brothers.   So while Quinn is trying to deal with the Morrison boys back in town she is busy doing things as having a "Commando day"  and "Speed Dating" and then there is the day Glenn wanted her to drink champagne all day. Will Quinn finally be able put the past behind her and find happiness in the future?  Or is she doomed to repeat history with the Morrison boys and stay miserable forever?

I have always been a big fan of Beth Harbison.  Her characters are always so dynamic and Quinn is no different.  The story is told with a lot of flashbacks to both ten years ago and even further back when Quinn first meets the Morrison boys, the back-story is necessary and it keeps things moving.   But my favorite parts of the book have to be the ones with Glenn.  Especially his red envelopes that just randomly appear.   I can honestly say that I "LOL'd" during the champagne scene.    There were a few times when I felt that the whole Burke/Quinn thing was dragging out a little bit too long, but the ending of the book was pretty satisfactory.  I will say that there was a "Happy Ever After", but I won't elaborate other than to say that I think Quinn got it right.

Bottom line, Chose the Wrong Guy, Gave Him the Wrong Finger is a fun Southern book with a lot of colorful characters. While I thought some parts were a bit too long, the colorful characters kept the story fresh and moving along.  Fans of Beth Harbison won't be disappointed in her newest novel and newcomers to her work will want to rush out and pick up her back-list.  Either way, you are in for a treat!


Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
