Product description

About the Author

While attending the University of Illinois in Chicago, Whitney Dineen was discovered by a local modeling agent and began an unexpected career as a plus-size Ford model. She modeled in New York City before moving to Los Angeles with her husband. When she wasn’t modeling, she was in the kitchen, baking delights to share with friends. Soon, her friends began asking her to send baskets of her wonderful candies and cookies to business associates, agents and production studios. Word spread like wildfire, and the rest, as they say, is history. Whitney’s sensational creations are still in great demand by her loyal celebrity clientele (www.WhitneysGoodies.com). During “The Hollywood Years,” Whitney was bitten by the writing bug and started creating characters that are inspired by strong women with a great sense of humor. In addition to her love of chick-lit, Whitney has also written a series of adventure books for middle readers The first of which, Wilhelmina and the Willamette Wig Factory, is nearing completion. Whitney and her husband, Jimmy, have relocated to the beautiful Pacific Northwest to raise their children, chickens and organic vegetables.

I thoughly enjoyed this laugh out loud book, I can relate to Mimi on so many levels. I always thought bunions were big toe issues, so it has been educational as well!

Well written, funny and romantic, what more can you want on a dull day.

Absolutely loved this story. Mimi is a great character and I submerged myself in her delightful world for three whole days of thorough enjoyment. Off to read the next. Pleased to see Edith will still feature!

I have to admit, chick-lit is not normally the type of novel I go for. But this is well-written, clever and, most of all, hilarious. It should come with a warning - do not read in public places! I loved Mimi, her constant battles to lose a few pounds, her conversation with her bunion, Edith Bunker which made me chuckle, and her romantic entanglements with Elliot and Richard. A great, entertaining, romp of a read. I'll be looking forward to the​ further adventures of Mimi.

Poor Mimi. She's the least dazzling sister in a family of outrageously dazzling women. Yes, she's attractive but no one notices when she's within a five-mile radius of her luminous siblings. Her extra 15 pounds of emotional eating weight doesn't help.

But—at least she has the prettiest feet. Oh. No. Wait. She just found out she has a bunion.

WTF! Unlucky in love, doomed to be the wallflower, Mimi has had enough.

Weight Watchers guide in hand, Mimi decides she's going to turn things around. Of course, her inspiration to change doesn't only come from her boredom with coming in last in the "Who's the Most Amazing Finnegan Sister" competition. She's fallen in love.

Elliot's a British boor as well as a brilliant and popular novelist her public relations firm represents. They get off to a splashy start, but sparks eventually fly, and the next thing you know, Mimi is working her womanly hips—and other accoutrements—to try to reel him in.

Things don't go as smoothly as Mimi hopes, which is what makes Whitney Dineen's book so much fun. Mimi is easy to cheer for and empathize with. I wept bitter tears of regret when I learned her bunion might mean she'd have to give up the lovely, tall heels which so many of us love. (Okay—maybe not actual tears. But as someone unable to wear my own lovely, tall heels anymore, I truly felt for her deep in my heart.)

Whitney has a breezy, humorous style which makes it easy to fly through the pages. Mimi is a good girl who's willing to put it—and them—all out there (in every sense of the word), to get what she wants. But, when push comes to shove, will she sacrifice what she wants the most to do what's right?

You'll have to read it to find out!

This is the first book that I have read by Whitney Dineen and after finishing Mimi (as I’ve so affectionately come to nickname her) I’ve decided that I need more. More of Mimi and more by Whitney.

In The Reinvention of Mimi Finnegan, we follow loveable Mimi, who has just had the news broken to her, rather callously, that she has a bunion. This news goes down like a lead balloon and from the moment that she leaves the doctor’s office in her upset state and heads straight to a drive-thru for a burger, I knew I was going to love her. The fact she names her bunion Edith tickled me too. Edith actually came to life for me in this book and became a character in herself.

Mimi is at a pretty low place when we meet her. She feels she’s the black sheep of her family, that she’s not perfect aesthetically or academically and seeks comfort in food so the fun really starts at her Weight Watchers meeting where she meets Kevin, an old school friend who is in the same boat at the moment. His wife has left him (pregnant to another man, if you please!) and he has piled on weight. Together, they reform a solid friendship and I loved the way they had each others backs. When they felt like falling off the wagon, they were each others rocks, when Mimi needed someone to be a true guy friend and sought advice on how to make another man feel a twinge of jealousy, Kevin was there for her. Although that scenario quickly became a comical nightmare for Mimi when the pair had to think fast after being caught fake-kissing to make HIS ex jealous by the object of Mimi’s affections. Kevin thus became her ‘gay’ bff.

Now, let me tell you all about the hot piece of Brit referred to above. Elliot Fielding. Elliot. Fielding.

This is the first negative review I've written. I liked reading this author's book, she sins at midnight and expected this would be another good read. However, I gave up after chapter 12. The basic plot line was an entertaining one. However what put me off was the comparables used, for example" this guy considers ideal. She is wearing a swimsuit with no boobs or butt to fill it out and painfully sharp collar bones. She bears a striking resemblance to an Auschwitz survivor". then another of walking to the bath with hangover like a one legged old grandmother with only two toes. I get that there are many forms of humour and not everyone will appreciate them, however to myself it was sincerely distasteful and put me off continuing with the rest of the book. I did try. But no I thought the purpose of reading this was to enjoy it, not fume at the intended humour. This is just my opinion.
