Weekly Reads: Chose the Wrong Guy, Gave Him the Wrong Finger

There are a handful of writers that consistently have fun summertime "beach reads" published in the May to July months each year.  Each spring, I start counting down their publication dates until I have my hands on these books.  Beth Harbison is definitely one of these writers.

I have read everything she's written, and they're always great, light, fun reads.

Her 2013 novel is Chose the Wrong Guy, Gave Him the Wrong Finger, and I've been desperate to start reading it!  Of course it should come out when I'm crazy wrapped up in the last couple of weeks of my masters program.  Oh, have I mentioned that I'm graduating tomorrow???  Because yeah, that's happening.

But back to fun summer reads....

Summary from goodreads:

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?

Other books I've loved by Beth include:

Any other authors I need to add to my summer time must read list??
