Chose the Wrong Guy, Gave Him the Wrong Finger

by Beth Harbison

St. Martin's Press | June 10, 2014 | Trade Paperback

Chose the Wrong Guy, Gave Him the Wrong Finger is rated 4 out of 5 by 1.

"Smart, funny, and unapologetically romantic." --Publisher's Weekly (starred review)

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, someone derailed her--the Best Man, who at the last minute--and with shocking revelations--begged her to reconsider the marriage. Quinn, stunned, hurt, and confused, struggled between ignoring what she was told--or running away.

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, spent the next seventeen years working in her Middleburg, Virginia, bridal shop, Talk of the Gown.

But when the two brothers return to town for another wedding, old anger, hurt, and passion resurface. Just because you've traded the bad guy for the good 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, Gave Him the Wrong Finger will keep you guessing and make you believe in the possibilities of love.

"Funny and charming, and perfect for a lazy day in the hammock or at the beach." --New York Journal of Books

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another Hit! The story follows Quinn Barton, who ten years ago was on her way to the alter to marry Burke Morrison, her high school sweetheart, when she was detailed by the Best Man - Frank Morrison, Burke's younger brother who at the last possible moment asked to to reconsider the marriage. Frank revealed that Burke had been cheating on her, which she knew nothing about. She had a choice - to stay and fulfill her guests' expectations, or run for her life. She chose to run. With the Best Man. Quinn’s convinced she’s moved on but when ten years later she’s making their grandmother’s wedding gown, she and the brothers reunite for the first time since that fateful, unhappy day and she realizes just how much she’s fooling herself because there are unresolved feelings and ghosts from the pasts that are hard to bury when your eyes are closed. She’ll have to do some serious soul searching to find out which brother if either is or was ever the right one for her. 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. Her plot may be a familiar topic in romance but she takes it to the next step and gives it tons of depth. Her characters are realistic, imperfect souls who’ll capture reader’s hearts and their empathies. Her narrative is flowing and visual, her dialogue is easy to read and a mix of belly laughing humor and angst filled histrionics. Bottom line, Chose the Wrong Guy, Gave Him the Wrong Finger is a fun book with a lot of colorful characters. 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!

Editorial Reviews

Readers will root for these four plucky women. Like the designer shoes that pepper its pages, this book is pleasing and stylish. This frothy confection is sure to fly off the shelves this summer.
