The Husband Maker by Karey White
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 collew ge, 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?
Karey White grew up in Utah, Idaho, Oregon, and Missouri. She attended Ricks College and Brigham Young University. Her first novel, Gifted, was a Whitney Award Finalist.
She loves to travel, read, bake treats, and spend time with family and friends. She and her husband are the parents of four great children. She teaches summer creative writing courses to young people and is currently working on her next book.
My review: The Husband Maker by Karey White
This is the first book out of three, so I knew it would not wrap up all tidy. But I really wanted it too. I will be wanting the next two books. I know what I want to happen but who knows what the next book is.
I was into the characters and even shed some tears along with them. The main character is Charlotte. Charlotte has dated a lot of guys and when she breaks up with them the next girl they date they end up marrying. Is the oldest of three, even if it is only 10 minutes older than her twin brother.
Kyle Aldsworth is older than Charlotte. He comes from a money and politics background. He is a fun date. His father is a senator.
Their dates are interesting. He works for the family business.
People behind Charlotte's back are calling her the husband maker. Which hurt her when she over hears gossip about her in the bathroom at a old boyfriend's wedding. Their are a lot of jokes about her boyfriends.
The setting for the book is San Francisco, CA
I laughed, cried and enjoyed the book. It is a clean read. It is a fast read, but leaves you wanting more now. I am glad I am not dating right now.
I was given this book for review and in exchange agreed to give honest review of it. All opinions are mine.
