Book Description

February 3, 2009
'Don't email me if you want a supermodel. I'm twenty-two, divorced, and I have twins. I'm also overweight, unattractive, and have no education to speak of. I'm pretty much not going to bring anything to the table except the fact that I'm pretty nice and won't ask you to pay my bills. Here's my email address. Don't email if you're full of it.'

With this ad, Stephanie Snowe relaunches herself into the world of dating. In this real-life account, she discovers that the search for Mr. Right can include a lot of wrong turns. With light-hearted sass, Stephanie introduces us to each Tom, Dick, and Denny, and their neuroses, pets, mullets, lies, and puking.

A girl can get discouraged having to deal with dive-bombing birds, first-date proposals, and eavesdropping mothers. Is there a knight in shining armor out there with a higher IQ than his horse? Stephanie hopes so.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious! February 17, 2009
By leiacw
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Left high and dry, pregnant with twins, just off the altar, Snowe plunges head-first into the internet dating world, despite being told that if she did so an axe murderer would hunt her down and kill her. After weeks of wading through emails from men who clearly were not paying attention to, you know, anything, Snowe ventures onto her first date with Denny and, apparently, all of his coworkers. Thus start the Romantic Misadventures of Ms. Snowe. You'll have to read the book to find out whether Snowe ever finds love in the internet dating world, how fun a date during a hurricane is, and exactly what is so distracting about Big Pimpin' Willie's tattoo.

Very special books do not cross my desk very often, but I am delighted to have read Meeting Mr. Wrong: The Romantic Misadventures of a Southern Belle. Snowe writes with such conversational wit that you could imagine laughing with disbelief as she told you her tales over coffee (or a good stiff drink!) I enjoyed Meeting Mr. Wrong so much I finished it the evening it arrived on my doorstep. I very much look forward to her next installment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read this book if you love to laugh February 11, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Some people are natural-born storytellers, and that's a skill that cannot be taught, bought, or faked. Stephanie Snowe is a natural storyteller. We cringe with her, laugh with her, and root for her throughout her book, and through it all we maintain hope that Prince Charming is waiting in the final pages. Stephanie is able to take a time in her life that must have been very difficult, and use the power of her talent to turn it into an entertaining, heartfelt read. She knows how to select just the right details to make us "see" her characters. She understands how to pace her stories so that you want to stay up to read "just one more chapter" - again and again, until the wee hours of the morning. I read Meeting Mr. Wrong several times, and laughed every time. As a matter of fact, I sometimes randomly think of one her stories when I'm sitting around at work or walking somewhere alone, and start laughing to myself. So I have Stephanie to thank for strangers and my coworkers suspecting that I am insane! I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm a man. Why am I reading this book?! April 3, 2009
By J. Yost
Format:Paperback
I'm a man in my 30's. Married with 2 small kids. I don't have time to read and you know I'm not going to read chick lit.

Until my wife left her copy in the bathroom and, in usual man activity, I spent a good amount of time in there with nothing to do but read. I admit it...I got hooked.

The author reminded me of my wife which made this book extra enjoyable for even me. Envisioning this woman or my wife going through these scenarios made me laugh out loud. My wife got tired of listening to me read bits out loud as she's already read it. Twice. I couldn't help. Big Pimpin' Willie? Pure Gold.

A fun read for anyone male or female. Though I don't know if I'm about to suggest it to my buddies I suggest you leave it in the bathroom. Your husband will enjoy it just as much as you did.

And if there's a 2nd book? I won't even wait for my wife to leave it in the bathroom. I'll just snag it in there myself!

Stephanie Snowe's writing style is great because as you read, you can tell what she was thinking. She writes out her exact reactions to situations, as if she were speaking to you. She tells stories of very uncomfortable first dates and she tells them in a hilarious way. I laughed out loud many times. You can feel her frustration in the weird and upsetting situations she was in but it's mitigated by her sense of humor.

I really enjoyed reading this book. The stories were great, and Stephanie Snowe's storytelling abilities are excellent. I didn't want to put the book down.

5.0 out of 5 stars hilarious! February 13, 2009
Format:Paperback
You know when you are reading a book and it is sooooo good that you get annoyed when you have to stop reading to change a diaper/feed your children/go to the bathroom etc?

No?

Maybe that's just me.

ANYWAY that is totally how I felt today reading Meeting Mr. Wrong- The Romantic Misadventures of a Southern Belle. It is hilarious. I read it cover to cover grinning the whole time.

The author- Stephanie Snowe- is someone I am familiar with from reading her blog- Jason. For the Love of God. I'm not sure how I first came across her blog but it was ages ago and after reading one post I was hooked and have been reading daily ever since. She is, by far, one of the most enjoyably hilarious bloggers out there. And her book? Equally as enjoyable.

I could absolutely picture all the disastrous dates from Stephanie's descriptions. The story flowed well and was easy to read. It read like I imagine Stephanie would talk... like she was sitting accross the room telling me the stories instead of me reading them on paper.

This really is the funniest book I have read in ages. I would HIGHLY recommend every single one of you go pick up a copy for yourself or your wife or girlfriend or sister or aunt... you WILL love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Real Life February 11, 2009
Format:Paperback
Reading "Meeting Mr. Wrong" was such a breath of fresh air! Stephanie Snowe brought real life onto paper. No fairy tales, no fantasies... just 100% real life. In the middle of reading the book, my fiance asked me to read it aloud to him because he couldn't understand why I was laughing so much--and I don't just mean little snickers. Trying to relay the stories to him just didn't do them justice. So I read, and we laughed together. It especially meant something to us because we met online and have had our own weird experiences with online dating! Stephanie DEFINITELY takes the cake! Looking forward to her next big hit!!

3.0 out of 5 stars How to end a book
This book sustained my interest in online dating adventures with its humor; however, at the end the humor disappeared and Ms Snowe forgot the entertainment. I was disappointed.
