THE HUSBAND LIST: NYC 1894, Heiress Caroline Maxwell has a domineering mother who provides her with a list of men for a suitable groom for the daughter. Caroline wants, passion, adventure and equality like her brother and his friend have, and love. Is Jack the one, even though he is considered unacceptable in mom's eyes? Danger looms but for that part of the pLot, read this entertaining and captivating novel by our favorite authors Janet Evanovich and Dorien Kelly. A great summer beach read. ( )

I expected this to not be very good but it was okay. If you are expecting a Janet Evanovich book, you will be disappointed. I didnt see a lot of her writing in the book. If you just read it as an historical romance, it was not bad, not great but not bad ( )

Caroline Maxwell is an independent 1890's woman... or at least she'd like to be. Unfortunately she's blessed with a managing mother who'd like nothing more than to see Caroline married off to an English title - and mother dearest even has one all picked out. Caroline's husband list runs more to one name: Jack Culhane, an Irish brewery owner whose friendship with Caroline's brother Eddie is appropriate, but whose marriage to Caroline would definitely not meet with parental approval.

Cute, fluffy, and amazingly forgettable.

Listened to this through Audible.com. Cute little departure for Evanovich as she goes back in time to the Gilded Age where many English lords were looking for American wives with money to shore up the family estate. The story was interesting and the characters were people I wanted to know more about. Hard to imagine the motivations of the people during that time period. So thankful for the women's liberation movement! ( )

I picked up this book solely based on the fact that I am a fan of the Stephanie Plum series (although those have been decreasing in substance). I liked some parts of this book but it felt rushed the entire time and then just ended. The main characters, Caroline and Jack, were likable enough but I wasn't really rooting for them. I honestly kept hoping the villain would end up having redeemable qualities and would actually be competition for Caroline's hand. Also, the mother was DREADFUL and I don't think she nearly got what she deserved at the end. Overall, this felt like a rush job by two authors and I was not too impressed. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312651325, Hardcover)

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.
