If Wishes Were Husbands was described to me as a ‘hilarious read’ and though I do like a good rom-com, be it film or book, I’m always a little wary of anything that is described to me as hilarious. Nonetheless, the description for Elizabeth Kyne’s tale seemed genuinely funny so I decided to check it out and I’m so glad I did.

While I’ve yet to read a fiction book that had me rolling in the aisles, this fun and funny read did have me laughing out loud. The concept of a woman somehow magicking up a...more

If we could have the perfect husband we’ve always wanted, what would we wish for? Rachel made that wish and then began to weave a fairytale. All she really wanted to do was fit in.

When I read the blurb, I knew I wanted to read this. Ms Kyne is a new author to me and she had me hooked from the minute I started reading. Written in the first person this is a truly entertaining read.

You can't help but like the heroine Rachel. Who hasn't sat in the hair dresser's chair and thought of something interesting to say to all those personal questions. Okay, most of us wouldn't make up a husband, but you can see why Rachel did. Her confusion when she comes home to that made up husband...more

I discovered this book on good-reads and as soon as I read the blurb about it I added it to my to-read pile. I thought it was a really cute and funny story. It is about a girl named Rachel who is tired of telling everyone she is single so instead she makes up a fake husband who then shows up at her house one night.
