The Right Wrong Number by Barbara Delinsky


Carly Kelly has just been presented with a life-changing business opportunity for tiny nursery and flower store, Plant People. But she only has four days to decide, which means she will most likely have to cancel her weekend trip away. She dials her friends to let them know, and excitedly launches into a speech about the opportunity. But when she pauses, a sexy, inquisitive stranger is on the other end, and he’s eager to hear about her store, her passions and her life. She’s dialed the wrong number---and the man on the other end, with his deep voice, his charming jokes and his excellent advice, is a surprise she never expected…

Will this wrong number turn out to be the right man for Carly?

My Thoughts: 

Normally with wrong numbers you awkwardly apologize or just hang up and act like it never happened…after all you don’t know the person you called! But what if you don’t realize it’s a wrong number until you’ve already blabbed a whole story?

I preordered this free short story and then read it right away once it released. It’s very sweet and even though it ended all too soon I still loved the connection between Carly and …the voice at the other end of the phone. I will be adding this one to my Lunch Room Reads tab!

Overall Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
