Review by Booklist Reviews

Posy Fairweather is thrilled when her boyfriend, personal trainer Matt, proposes; he's uncomplicated and she doesn't really mind that people think she could do better. Because she can't, as evident from her past failed relationships. Or can she? Soon, instead of planning her wedding, she's tracking down old boyfriends online, wondering if any of them are the one who got away. College boyfriend Chris lives on a houseboat off the Shetland Islands, and he wasn't a real contender even before she found out that his girlfriend, who also lives on the houseboat, is pregnant. Flashy banker Adam hasn't changed in the years since she dated him, and, actually, his perpetual man-child lifestyle is not that appealing. Then there's the one she can barely talk about, who she's most afraid to track down. But when Matt finds out what she's doing, she might lose him, too. This was originally published in the U.K. in 2010, which explains the reliance on Facebook as the guiding social-media forum, and it might be a little more citified than Colgan's current fans are used to. Still, The Good, the Bad, and the Dumped is a charmer in the Bridget Jones mold of a likably flawed woman learning to love herself before she can love someone else. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
