How can you NOT want to read this book just by the title alone? Once again, Beth Harbison brings some wonderful characters to life in this intelligent mature chick lit novel. The main character is Quinn and the book opens on her wedding day. Just moments before she is to walk down the aisle, she gets the devastating news that the love of her life, Burke Morrison, and the man she intends to spend the rest of her life with has been cheating on her. Perhaps she could believe it was a rumor or mistake, but the carrier of this tale is none other than Burke’s brother and best man, Frank. Obviously, there will be no wedding that day, or any day for that matter.
Now jump ahead 10 years and Quinn is pretty much in the same place she was on that fateful day. She works in her family’s shop, she dates (unsuccessfully) once in a while, and that’s about it. Her good friend Glenn decides that something needs to change, and he gives Quinn a series of tasks she must do every day to get her out of her comfort zone. As the same time this is happening, guess who comes back to town?
Chose the Wrong Guy, Gave Him the Wrong Finger is a fun sweet story about forgetting and forgiving.
