Description

Based on the family from the bestselling Love in a Nutshell, the story of an heiress longing to marry for love or not at all...

From The New York Times bestselling writing duo Janet Evanovich and Dorien Kelly, comes the story of a young woman's search for true love. Caroline Maxwell would like nothing more than to join her brother, Eddie, and his friend, Jack Culhane, on their adventures. While Jack and Eddie are off seeing the world, buying up businesses and building wildly successful careers, Caroline's stuck at home frightening off the men her mother hopes will ask for her hand in marriage. When her mother sets her sights on the questionable Lord Bremerton as a possible suitor, Caroline struggles with her instincts and the true nature of her heart. She longs for adventure, passion, love, and most of all . . . Jack Culhane, an unconventional Irish-American bachelor with new money and no title. A completely unacceptable suitor in the eyes of Caroline's mother. But Caroline's dark hair, brilliant eyes and quick wit have Jack understanding just why it is people fall in love and get married.

Set in New York City in 1894, The Husband List is an American gilded age romantic mystery. It evokes memories of the lavish lifestyles and social expectations of the Vanderbilts and Rockefellers—a time when new money from the Americas married Old World social prestige and privilege. Dresses by Worth, transcontinental ocean voyages, lavish parties, a little intrigue, and a lot of romance await in, The Husband List.

    I LOVED this book! I didn't know if I would bring it different from Janet's normal quirky wacky style! I couldn't put it down! The only problem I had was I wanted to know more! Hoping for a second book about jack and Caroline!

    I could not put this book down! The romance between the two main characters is exciting and even though it is predictable I thoroughly enjoyed the journey they took to finally end up together. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a easy read romantic story that will stir up your sensual side, a feel good romance with an engaging storyline! A good beachside book for the summer!
  • Great story line

    All of the elements for a good read but it's just lacking in real character development, it's very flat. I wish I had spent my money on something more enjoyable

    A huge disappointment. Missing all the elements that make the "Plum" books so entertaining.

    Nothing like any of Janet's other books. Boring, undeveloped characters - no humor, no suspense ... Not worth a first read let alone a second (and I reread ALL her books). Very disappointing.

    If I wanted to read a harlequin novel I would have bought one. This book is just boring. It has none of the wit and humor I love and expect in her novels. I never laughed once.

    I was expecting the usual Janet Evanovich writing style that I love but was sadly disappointed. This book is a tale of a rich heiress who falls in love with her brothers friend while her mother insists she marries a duke. I kept waiting for the usual humor or other twists I expect from Janet's work but it was sadly missing. This book is not worth the money and reads like a cheap harlequin romance.
