The Reinvention of Mimi Finnegan by Whitney Dineen

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.

I would like to thank BrooksCottageBks and Whitney Dineen for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

The books begins when Mimi finds that she has a bunion, no big deal to most people but devastating to Mimi as she has three extremely beautiful and talented sisters.  The only thing they could find to say about Mimi is she has gorgeous feet, hence why she is devastated.

I couldn't help but like Mimi and Whitney's writing of her and the other characters is great, making the whole book easy to get into.  I found once I started I couldn't stop and at times would be laughing at parts of the story.

You all know how much I love my book boyfriends and Elliot really is lovely, he's such a gentleman, but he also has a jealous side to him which I loved.  Whitney doesn't let us down on the man front as there are load of hot men in the this story.

I great feel good read about friendships and relationships.  As this is the first of Whitney's books I have read I certainly will be looking for more.


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 ( 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 available now. Whitney and her husband, Jimmy, have relocated to the beautiful Pacific Northwest to raise their children, chickens and organic vegetables. 

Her first rom com, She Sins at Midnight recently won 2015 Reader's Favorite silver medal in chick-lit and Mimi was #1 or #2 in humor satire on Amazon for over 2 weeks.
