I used to really like Susan Isaacs but I find her latest books boring, dull, flat and I don't like characters. ( )

The back story in "As Husbands Go," is a loving solid marriage that ends violently with the husband's murder. The plot develops around the widow's refusal to accept the "official" facts of the homicide because of her belief in her husband. Susan Isaacs's humor is suffused but definite, with a strong Long Island accent. The development and resolution of the mystery surrounding the husband's death is satisfying , especially since nobody but the widow thought there was a mystery.

Entirely confused why this book is publicized as a funny read, because it is certainly is not funny. I don't mean that it's dramatic or serious. Rather I mean that perhaps the author and publisher intended it to be amusing or witty, but it failed miserably. And it's sort of a mystery, but not really. Sadly, what it really was was a few hours of my life I won't get back. ( )

I thought this book was going to be cute and funny, and it was, sort of, but I also kind of hated it. I think I just can't relate to books about rich people. Especially when they wear designer clothes, which are described in detail. ( )

A "mystery" with an interesting, and generally likeable, set of core characters. A young widow attempts to prove that her recently murdered husband was in fact the loving, faithful spouse she believes him to have been. The ending was very flat and disappointing given the color Isaacs used for the rest of the story, but overall a pleasant listen. ( )
