The Reinvention of Mimi Finnegan Review
Genre: Chick Lit
Author: Whitney Dineen
I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. Wow, this book was amazing!!! I love fun chick lit books and this one certainly delivered! Mimi is in her thirties and ready to settle down. She meets Elliot, an author whose book she secretly loves, and immediately decides he is stuck-up and arrogant. However, she can’t deny her insane attraction to him. Elliot seems to feel the attraction, too, so Mimi can’t understand why he is almost engaged to another woman. Mimi also has three sisters who she has always considered perfect and she feels like she doesn’t match up.
I adored Mimi. She had a good sense of humor. She was very sweet and cared deeply about her friends and family. I like that Mimi always tried to do the right thing. She refused to lead a man on unfairly. I also liked that Mimi became a strong, independent woman. She realized she couldn’t wait around forever for Elliot to make a move and did what she had to do for herself.
The story kept my interest the whole time. The writing style was very engaging. The secondary characters were likeable and I enjoyed reading about them and their lives. I didn’t actually like Elliot as much as I liked Mimi’s other love interest, but there are a lot of male love interest in chick lit books that I don’t like. Overall, I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes chick lits! I would love to read more from this author in the future.
