Overview

Sometimes Mr. Right couldn't be more wrong…

Thanks to a devastating revelation about her husband, Reenie Holbrook's once-perfect marriage is over. For eleven years she had the life she wanted—and now it's gone.

Sometimes Mr. Wrong couldn't be more right…

Reenie decides that the first step in recovering from her ordeal is to find work; after all, she has three young children to support. She's thrilled when she lands a job at Dundee High teaching history—until Isaac Russell, the man who triggered the unraveling of her marriage, accepts a temporary position teaching science. Then she's tempted to quit. Reenie doesn't care if the whole town admires Isaac…and she won't admit that, secretly, she admires him, too. She doesn't want to see him or his sister in "her" town.

This book was originally published in 2007 not 2014. Shame on B&N as well as the author for their deception by changing the cover and pub date and the computer program which does not tell you when a book is already in your library.

A beautiful story of love, friendship and finding a way in life. I liked the complexity that was displayed by the characters. Reminds me of the phrase "If you are given lemons, make lemonade." LA-TXN

I really liked the story but it didnt have the hot, romance of some of novak's previous novels in this series. I want it all- great story, great characters, and steamy romance. This was more tame than i would prefer.

If you have been reading Brenda's Dundee series this one is about Reenie and introduces two new characters Elizabeth and Isaac. Keith, Reenie's husband is living two lives. He has another wife (Liz) in L.A.His life begins to unravel when Isaac his brother in law discovers he has lied to Liz about his frequent business trip, that he is really going back to his life in Dundee. Isaac follows him and reveals to both Reenie and Liz that he has been leading 2 lives. Keith choses to return to Reenie and his family in Dundee. Liz for the sake of her children with Keith decide to pick up and move there as well. Isaac goes along to help out Liz. This is where the story really starts to become interesting how both women react to each other how they handle Keith, and what happens when Isaac finds himself drawn to Reenie! As usual Brenda Novak does not disappoint us!

Unable to believe the number of business trips his brother-in-law Keith O¿Connell makes to Dundee, Idaho, Isaac Russell decides to serendipitously follow him. Isaac is stunned to find that Keith has another wife with three young daughters besides his sibling Liz........... Forced to make a decision, Keith chooses his Idaho family for the sake of his offspring. When his despondent sister Liz decides to follow her ¿husband¿ to Idaho, Isaac does likewise to insure she does not break the law by doing something stupid or even try to do something stupider like getting her ¿husband¿ to come back to her. Complicating matters at least in Isaac¿s mind is his attraction to Keith¿s schoolteacher first wife Reenie Holbrook, who uses her maiden name........... Big girls do cry when they suffer broken hearts as both women do when the truth about Keith¿s bigamy surfaces. However, Reenie recovers faster perhaps because she has the kids to take care of (no time for breakdowns) and the interest of Isaac to help her move on while Liz feels abandoned and betrayed first by her two-timing spouse and then her brother. She and the kids provide the fresh extended look at the impact of bigamy........... Harriet Klausner
