My Review of "Winning Mr. Wrong" by Marie Higgins



Whoever said the quest for love wasn’t comical never met Charlene Randall. Charley is looking for a man who wants to start a family, a man who will take her to the temple. Problem is, she has never dated a man for longer than three months. When she reads an internet article called “Ten Ways to Win Your Man,” she decides to try it on her new coworker, Maxwell Harrington. Max was her crush in high school, but the superstar sports anchorman doesn’t even remember her. Enter ladies’ man Damien Giovianni, Charley’s handsome neighbor, who agrees to help her win Max over. What follows is a hilarious story of mishaps and misunderstandings where Charley learns that what she really needs may be right in front of her.

When was the last time you read a romance that really made you laugh? I did this past weekend while reading, "Winning Mr. Wrong" by Marie Higgins. This book had me smiling from the start. Main character, Charlene (Charley) Randall, is on a quest to "win" a man. She gets her game plan from an internet article called, "Ten Ways to Win Your Man". Charley's main problem is that she ends up doing such goofy things when she is around a man that she likes. I guess I was laughing so much because I seemed to have the same problem while around someone I liked. Poor Charley goes from one romantic disaster to another.

Now, this is not a serious and stiff romantic novel. It is a fun, light read that will make you smile. It will also make you remember the first time you dated someone seriously. Charley chases one man, Maxwell Harrington, while her handsome neighbor, Damien Giovianni is quietly chasing her. You pretty much can figure out how this will all end up, but it is so much fun getting there. This is an LDS Romantic novel; but the religious content will not put off anyone from another faith who wants to read this book.

This is Marie Higgins first published novel. I believe that she did a super job on this novel. I can't wait to start reading her second novel, "Heart of a Hero".
