Review and Giveaway: The Husband Maker
Title: The Husband Maker
Author: Karey White
Publisher: Orange Door Press
Published: June 16, 2014
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Charlotte’s a girl with nicknames. She may not love being called Charles or Chuck, but the hardest nickname to take is the one she was given in college, the one that’s followed her now for too many years. They call her “the husband maker” and sadly, it fits. Every guy she’s dated since high school has become his next girlfriend’s husband. Not hers. Not three girlfriends down the road. The next.
Is she doing something wrong or is she just cursed?
When Kyle Aldsworth enters the picture and sweeps her off her feet, Charlotte begins to hope that maybe she's not destined to be single forever. A senator’s son with political aspirations of his own, Kyle's wealthy, handsome, and in need of a wife. Will Charlotte be disappointed yet again, or will she finally be able to make a husband for herself?
Last year I read My Own Mr. Darcy by Karey White and was immediately taken in by the sweet romance of a woman trying to find her own happily ever after. So, I jumped after the chance to read her latest book The Husband Maker. While there is no Mr. Darcy, or anyone that resembles him, this book will be sure to appease everyone who has ever had trouble finding Mr. Right.
Charlotte is called "The Husband Maker" because after every breakup her ex ends up finding "Mrs. Right" in his next relationship. She's not the only one that notices this pattern, in fact she's earning quite a reputation. Discouraged, Charlotte doesn't want to date anyone anytime soon, but her friends have other ideas. That's where Kyle comes in. Kyle seems like the complete package, but there's something standing in the way of her happiness. Charlotte has to decide if Kyle is her Mr. Right.
I enjoyed reading this book as much as I did My Own Mr. Darcy. Karey White writes characters that will resonate with many people. You will laugh, you will cry. You will become a cheerleader for Charlotte. While I did like this book, there were a few things that didn't sit well. The biggest one was the cliffhanger. At least the author won't make us wait too long. The sequel, The Match Maker, will come out later this year. If you're looking for a sweet romance to read, this is it!
