One moment Quinn is standing in her wedding dress, ready to start the next chapter of her life with Burke. The next moment she is running off with his brother Frank, due to hearing earth shattering news of Burke's betrayal to her. However that fling was short lived and we pick up the story 10 years later, with Quinn working at a bridal shop and making a dress for non-other than the two brother's grandmother. With Frank and Burke back in her life, Quinn must decide which brother she really has feelings for, and the surprising story behind Burke’s betrayal all those years ago.
I would group this book into the category of some of my favorite authors such as Sophie Kinsella, Jill Mansell and Mariah Keyes. The story had many laugh out loud moments and some moments of deep sadness. I did enjoy the journey I took with Quinn as she tried to figure out her life in the past and trying to make peace with it in the future. I found myself satisfied with the ending and glad to have read it. There were a few slow parts that did not keep me as interested and I skimmed through them, but overall it was an enjoyable story, good for anyone who wants to prop up their feet and read a good romantic comedy.
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, 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, someone 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.
