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.

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?
