Carly Kelly, the sole proprietor of Plant People, has a difficult decision to make. Her business is doing well enough on its own and Carly is satisfied with that. However, Mayers, the large home store at the other end of the block, wants to set up her plant business as a little boutique within their store, not quite a buyout as much as a merger.

But she’s supposed to take this weekend to visit friends, not pore over reports and plans, papers and accounting spreadsheets. So she calls to postpone the weekend visit . . . and somehow manages to dial the wrong number. She finds herself talking to book editor Charlie.

An unexpected accident leaves her phoneless . . . right in the middle of her conversation with Charlie . . . and Carly spends the next couple of days trying to recreate the misdialed call. Needless to say, she has no success with that, managing only to reach a plethora of wrong people.

Will Carly find a way to reconnect with Charlie, the man who gave her the courage to make her decision, or will Charlie remain a mystery forever?

This short story [advertised as a short story, so no surprise there] is reasonably predictable . . . and delightful. Readers are quite likely to guess the ending [even if they also fervently wish there was just a bit more story]. The situation is unique, but believable [everyone doesn’t use speed dial on their phone, after all]; the characters charming and interesting.

All in all, it’s a cute story guaranteed to elicit a smile or two and a hope that Carly and Charlie actually get that happily ever after.

The Right Wrong Number: A Short Story by Barbara Delinsky
Cute short story about Carly Kelly who runs her own shop for plants. It's in a college town and a huge store wants has given her a chance to incorporate with them.
She arrives home and calls to cancel her plans with her family but dials the phone wrong and ends up talking to Charlie who's an editor and they are getting along just great when she drops her phone in a bucket of water.
Like how she tries to find out who he is and attempts to misdial a lot more numbers to get him back on the new phone.
Book also includes an excerpt from Sweet Salt Air. Othe works by the author are highlighted at the end.

Cute five-minute read. Funny that the excerpt for her next book is about twice as long. ( )

Carly has a big decision to make, but when she goes to call her friends to cancel their weekend plans so she can think, she misdials and winds up talking for awhile with Charlie.

While in a sense this is a minimalist narrative, it is emotionally evocative and uplifting. Insights are allowed into the characters lives with simple words and phrases. The characters themselves are authentic and good hearted.

Overall, a cute read. ( )

This is probably the best short story I’ve ever read! From the first letter to the last I was glued to the words and was so wrapped up in the story that nothing broke my concentration. Even though Carly and Charlie didn’t know each other, their conversation flowed smoothly and it sounded like they were perfect for each other. I loved the story line and even though the ending left me wanting more, I was more than glad I read it.

I checked the reviews, and can’t understand why there are so many people complaining about this book. It clearly states it’s a short story and there are only 30 pages (there is actually a little more than that), plus it was free. Sure, I’d have liked for the story to go on so I can see how things went with them, but since I went in knowing it was short, I figured it would leave you wondering.

The only thing that would make this short story better would be for the author to make this a full length novel. I can’t wait to check out her other books! ( )
