This week I'm reviewing...

Here's the synopsis:

Thirty-four year old, Mimi Finnegan is the third of four daughters and in her eyes, by far, the most unremarkable. She has no singular accomplishment that can stand up to any of her sisters. And if that isn’t enough, she is the only single sibling in her family. 

Mimi’s sisters decide that it’s time she gets serious about husband hunting, so they begin a campaign to find Mr. Right for her. Considering her most recent dating encounters include a night club owner who stuffs bratwurst in his pants and a WASPy trust fund baby, living happily under his mother’s thumb, Mimi is more than ready to meet THE ONE. Enter celebrated British novelist Elliot Fielding. 

Sexual tension and anger heat up between the duo and it isn’t until Mimi discovers that Elliot is almost engaged to another that she realizes she is head-over-heels in love with him. 

The journey will make you laugh, cry and want to pull your hair out from frustration! Mimi eventually learns that she is quite remarkable in her own right and never needed to worry that she lived in her sister’s shadows. 

The Reinvention of Mimi Finnegan is the perfect laugh-out-loud, feel good book for any woman who has ever felt that she wasn’t good enough. 

Here are my thoughts:

Move aside Bridget Jones, Mimi Finnegan is the new it girl.  It has been a long time since I've issued a 5 star rating and Whitney Dineen has broken that streak.  Not only has she broken it, but she's set the bar for future books incredibly high.

Mimi Finnegan is relatable, hilarious and someone I just rooted for the entire book.  She had her fair share of issues but took them in stride (although occasionally with the help of Ben & Jerry's).  I want to be friends with Mimi and her family.

I've already added Whitney Dineen's other books to my "Want to Read" list.  I can't wait to get to them!
