Book Review: THE HUSBAND HUNT by Lynsay Sands

Book Summary:
Let the hunt begin...
Lisa Madison wants a husband, and she has just the candidate in mind:  Robert Langley.  Trouble is, the infuriating man insists on seeing her as the impish girl she once was--even as every other gentleman in London has taken notice of her womanly...charms.  When her beauty lands her in danger it's Robert who comes to the rescue, only to announce his affections are not of the romantic kind!

Robert saw enough sorrow in his parents' union to know he wants nothing to do with marriage, which is exactly what he'll be trapped into if he acts on his desire for the irksome siren.  And then Lisa does what Robert least expects:  gives up on him!  As feigned indifference gives way, blistering passion burns at last.  But just before the pair can succumb to hard-won bliss, an enemy with unfinished business lurks, threatening to destroy them both.

Book Review:

THE HUSBAND HUNT is by no means a bad book, but it's nothing new either.  Lisa comes across at times as a too-stupid-to-live heroine (she's very worldly one moment, extremely naive the next), and Robert is just too dense sometimes.  His relationships with his parents and the effect their marriage had on him is not really explored all that much, despite it being the major reason as to why he just cannot commit to someone who is very obviously in love with him.  And don't get me started on the villain, who is very obvious the minute he steps on to the page.  Ms. Sands' writing is inviting, and the supporting characters are well drawn enough that I want to go back and read their stories, but she could have done a much better job on this.

I recommend it for a light beach read.

2.5 stars out of 4
