This book is a mess. A really really big mess, starting with a stupid title (and dumber tag) and continuing on at just about every level. It stacked up until I just couldn't any more at a third in. The title and tag are probably the biggest misstep, if only because they set expectations that are disposed of by chapter two (where the letters stop, never to be heard from again).

I can't decide if Sophie's mother is suppose to be read as funny or psychotic because everybody around her (including Sop

I actually really enjoyed this but a few plot twists just didn't work for me. And there were other elements I felt should have been explored further. Lots of potential here.

He hopes that in doing so, she will get to know him and love him too. Maybe even find out along the way who it is she'd really like to marry.

She was determined and unhappy when he told her he was already married and that someday an amazing man would come into her life that she would love more than him.

When Sophie was young, she wanted to marry her father and was devastated to learn that she couldn't. He gave her a journal and encouraged her to write letters to her future husband to help her figure out what she was looking for. She had a crush on her brother's friend, Hanno, and was sure he was the guy for her.

Ten years later, her grandmother sent her to Europe. While she was in Italy, she ran into Hanno. She was excited at first but that meeting turned out to be disastrous. She met his nice

Sophie isn't perfect, but really...who is? She's tall and has big feet, which, according to her mother, will make it hard to get a husband. At her father's urging, she began writing letters to her future husband as a young age, so she could learn what she wanted. There are times when she thinks she knows, but she really doesn't know as much as she thinks.

Sophie's adventures take her to Italy with friends, where she runs into her old childhood crush, Hanno. Her eyes were definitely opened in that
Aimee (Getting Your Read On)
So, the blurb makes it sound like this book is mostly about a girl and the letters she writes to her future husband. It really isn't. She writes in a journal when she is small and then she writes about her childhood crush. That's all in the first chapter or two. The journal doesn't even come back into play until the end of the book where Sophie goes back to the journal and adds a couple entries. I wish the journal had played a bigger part in the book like the blurb suggests. I didn't feel like S ...more

Cute. Oddly enough, I got this review copy from a non-LDS book review for which I do regular reviews, and I'm not entirely sure why the publisher sent it out to them. On one hand, it could almost be just written for general audiences, but there are just enough references to LDS/Mormon culture, practices, and expectations that it might not make complete sense to those who aren't very familiar with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and some of the cultural quirks its members can exhi ...more

Cute, clean read! Took a little bit to get into it but then I really enjoyed it. I would have loved to see her journal/letters have more influence in the story. There was so much talk of it at first then it kind of disappeared. I struggled with Sophia's Mom! She was so rude and critical I'm surprised Sophia turned out as good as she did. Peter was a great guy and I'm happy it worked out in the end. :)

3.5 Stars. I thought the premise of this story was cute and I did stay up late reading.

I was a little disappointed in the whole love letter thing tho; Sophie really didn't write that many letters after age 10. Her mother was a piece of work and I felt bad for her dad. I felt this book had more potential than was realized, but still a cute, fun read.

There were moments where this had funny/cute dialogue, but I couldn't get past her unborn daughter and her fighting all night long over who she should marry. The main character wasn't very likable. Not my favorite LDS romance.

The author is a friend of mine. She is a brilliant author and this is probably my favorite of her books! I can't wait for the next one.

LDS or not, if you like clean romance or young adult fiction--you will enjoy Letters to My Future Husband!

Letters to my future husband by Lisa Mckendrick is a thrilling, funny, and romantic novel. Sofia is the main character in this book. It starts out with the way her she looks up to dad and it is very heartwarming and cute. The way she cried after her dad said she couldn’t marry her was the funniest thing! I cried because I was laughing so hard. After the first chapter it skips ahead ten years ahead into her life in Italy. In Italy Sofia runs into Hanno her childhood crush that she hasn’t gotten o ...more

I like this book, though it was not what I was expecting. The mother was quite horrible to her daughter, ALL the time. And then it wasn't until about half way through the book that the letters actually really came into play.

Other than that, it is a classic second chance at love novel that wouldn't let me put the book down!!!
I know that sounds cliche...but seriously, I tried to go to bed and ended up picking my phone back up to continue reading!

This book was so cute!! It was definitely one of those cute, fluffy and heart-swooning kind of books but don't worry there was still some drama. After finishing reading it I was just so happy because it ended so well. It was so funny as well because of the silly things that kept happening between them. Ahh I just loved how cute it was!
I thought this book was a cute story with an over-analytical main character I could relate to. Check out my full review: http://loveforthewrittenword.blogspot...

This is the first book of Lisa's that I've read and I really enjoyed it. She has a great sense of humor and the characters are fun and full of personality. It's a wonderful, simple, romantic read. I would recommend it to anyone!

I wish there were more letters, and a "ten years later" with one out the characters, but overall it was great.

This book was really cute, but it wasn't as good as I had hoped. I was a little disappointed, especially by the main character's relationship with her mother.

I don't normally read these kinds of books, but my friend suggested I read it. First off, the title is misleading and it wasn't at all what I expected it to be about. I thought there would be more to do with the letters and unlike the blurb hinted, they didn't really help her find her future husband.
But I did like the overall story. Some things were handled way too fast, and I would've liked to see the mother daughter relationship between Sofia and her mom have a more solid resolution.

I read this book in a day. I had to know what happened between Sophie and Peter. When I started the book I wasn't sure I was going to like Sophie, but considering her mother's bossiness and almost constant negativity. But Sophie does feel genuine flaws and all. But I confess my favorite character was Peter. I think that's why I read the book so quickly, I wanted to see what would happen. I'm a big fan of good men and Peter definitely fits that definition. In fact, it's to bad that he isn't a rea ...more
