Book Description

We all look up our exes on-line…but should we?

Posy Fairweather is over the moon when her boyfriend Matt proposes in what is probably the most romantic way possible—on top of a mountain, in a thunderstorm, like something from a Nicholas Sparks novel. But a few days later he dumps her. Crushed and humiliated, Posy wonders why all her romances have always been such train wrecks.

Determined to gain some insight, Posy resolves to get online, track down her exes, and ask them. Which doors from Posy’s past should stay closed? Which might open? Can she learn from past mistakes? And what if she has let Mr. Right slip through her fingers along the way?

Book Review

The Good, the Bad, and the Dumped by Jenny Colgan is a cute woman’s fiction novel about a woman that meets with her exes to find out why her past relationships didn’t work after getting engaged. When Posy’s fiancé dumps her, she decides to start meeting her exes and talking to them in person to find out what went wrong in their relationships. Posy realizes her past relationships weren’t like she remembered them and that she fantasized many of them. By meeting with her exes Posy finds out who her true love is. This is a cute story with many funny moments. Posy is worried about making the wrong choice and marrying the wrong person. She thinks what everyone does about her exes. Could this relationship have worked? There are many humorous parts throughout the book and important perspectives. I recommend The Good, the Bad and the Dumped for fans of woman’s fiction and cute romances.

I listened to the audiobook narrated by Penelope Rawlins and really enjoyed her narration.

Thank you Harper Audio, William Morrow, and Edelweiss for The Good, the Bad, and the Dumped.

About the Author

Jenny Colgan was born in Scotland and has lived in London, the Netherlands, the U.S. and France. She eventually settled on the wettest of all of these places, and currently lives just North of Edinburgh with her husband Andrew, her dog Nevil Shute, and her three children: Wallace, who is 11 and likes pretending to be 19 and not knowing what this embarrassing ‘family’ thing is that keeps following him about; Michael-Francis, who is 9 and likes making new friends on aeroplanes, and Delphine who is 7 and is mostly raccoon as far as we can tell so far.  

Things Jenny likes include: cakes, far too much Doctor Who, wearing Converse trainers every day so her feet are now just gigantic big flat pans; baths only slightly cooler than the surface of the sun and very very long books, the longer the bet
