Chose the Wrong Guy, Gave Him the Wrong Finger by Beth Harbison, read by Orlagh Cassidy
This light romance novel features Quinn Barton, a young woman who has taken over the wedding dress boutique started by her parents. She makes her own dresses, based on each woman's specifications. The majority of her work is weddings, but she also does work for other formal events. It doesn't make her rich, but it does earn her a decent living. She is good friends with a guy she went to high school with who owns the cheese shop next door to hers. He gets her to admit that she's in a rut and challenges her to do things that shake up her world a bit.
The event that begins the book is the grandmother of an old boyfriend who is getting married again and wants Quinn to make her dream dress. Quinn has never gotten over the boyfriend Burke, after discovering on the day they were supposed to get married, that he'd been cheating on her. She found out from his older brother Frank, and followed up the sudden end of her engagement with a crazy road trip where she did some things she still hasn't resolved in her mind.
As Burke and Frank are now back in town for the upcoming wedding of their grandmother Dottie, and preparing for the sale of the family farm, Quinn is forced to meet both men and finally resolve the events of ten years ago.
This book has humour and romance, and the story sometimes goes back to Quinn's younger days, meeting Burke and starting the relationship and the leadup to what was supposed to be her wedding day and ended quite differently.
Quinn is an intelligent woman, a skilled seamstress, and a romantic at heart, but ten years is a long time to be stuck in the past and it is time she found a way to move forward.
