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.

Good but ending was diappointing

I kept waiting for more action from the villan and thought it might happen at the end but sadly the ending fell short. I did, however, enjoy the main character's journey and will to find true love.

Excellent choice if you are looking for a light, refreshing reading with refined but biting sense of humor. Although it's a romantic story that could inspire a top of the list chick flick, the powerful description gives you a very complete panoramic view of the values and patterns of the society of that epoch. A very descriptive narrative that is, at the same time, solid and subtle, lightweight but powerful will submerge you in every scene, taking you in a trip inside the story.

Fun fast read. Even though historical it is about a fun independent girl and the guy who loves her!
