Wrong Turn, Right Guy is a romantic adventure written by Haylie B. Fox. Teresa (Tessa) Vadney had worked very hard at the law firm, not taking a single holiday in over twelve years, in the hopes of making partner. Instead, she is fired from her job when she refuses to cancel travel plans at the last minute. You see, her best friend, Anna, is getting married in Italy. As bridesmaid, Tessa has much to do to make Anna’s day perfect. With her mother as travel partner, Tessa quickly becomes flustered after they land, when everything that could go wrong does. From kidnapping fears at the airport, fully-booked hotels, over-charging cab drivers and their inability to travel to their hotel, things go from bad to worse when their rental car breaks down on the way to the wedding. They are assisted by Alex – an English-speaking, handsome, newly-single American who takes a romantic interest in Tessa. With Alex making all the right moves, and Tessa not trusting any man since being burned years ago, will Tessa take a chance on Alex?

Haylie B. Fox’s tale of a woman who has received the wrong end of the stick for too long is very well written, drawing the reader in from the very first page. Much hilarity takes place with the main character’s mother by her side, which increases tenfold when Tessa’s mother tries to force the romance to happen. There are many nostalgic moments in these pages, taking me back to the days when I first encountered Europe as a tourist, and I found myself nodding quite often at the interaction between tourists and locals. Although humor makes up a large portion of Wrong Turn, Right Guy, there are also some very serious moments, some of which are quite dark and emotional, which cause the reader to question the direction of the new romance when ex-spouses suddenly appear, each with somewhat ulterior motives. Regardless of this, I thoroughly enjoyed Wrong Turn, Right Guy, and recommend it to readers who enjoy their romance served up with a hefty dose of comedy, whilst tugging at the heartstrings.
