Susie Gersten’s plastic surgeon husband is found dead in a prostitute’s apartment but that’s not the huband she knows. She talks and gets advice from her supportive but unsympathetic best friend and her financially brilliant but blunt husband. Her sophisticated and opinionated grandmother also shows up to support her even though she's only met Susie once. Eventually, the truth is discovered.

There's lots of humor about fashion, makeup, furniture, and people despite the sad subject of a murdered husband and father. There's also parts that are touching. This is more a story of relationships than a murder mystery. Overall, it was a bit hit or miss for me but I would try another but this author. ( )

Entertaining and touching in parts, as most Susan Isaacs novels are. This isn't the best novel in the world, but I enjoyed it (and cringed at times) and definitely felt for the protagonist. It was upsetting to experience this poor woman's situation and felt right when she started to look for answers about her husband's murder. The side characters were great...a little like Evanovich or Hiassen's. (I'm so not into clothing and appearance, though, that some of the sidelines were lost on me.) ( )

2.5/5 (Goodreads needs half stars!) review of this to come - need to sort it all out :)

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.
