Kristen Casey wrote Finding A Husband which is a wonderful southern romance involving two very unlikely people who fall in love! For my full review click here and see what all the fuss is about->

Thank you so much to the publisher and Kristen Casey for the review copy in exchange for my honest opinion!

DNF at 19%

I couldn't relate to the characters or engage with this story.

When you first meet Molly, she comes across as uptight and a bitch. I see the logic of this, the idea that the author wanted to show that she was independent, but unfortunately she wasn't getting better for me.

I skipped from 19% to 30% to see if I was interested in where events were heading, and I wasn't, so this is going to the DNF list.

As I did not finish, there's no rati

When I came to review this book, I was a little surprised by the negative reviews, especially the person who didn't finish it. Personally, I loved it and couldn't put it down! I read that people couldn’t connect with Molly’s character - and I guess I understand that. She’s a bit standoffish in the beginning, but you can tell she’s putting up a front because she’s been hurt. As you learn more about her past, you begin to understand her better. It’s as if she’s trying to convince herself that she ...more

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of the book.

Here's the thing: I struggled with this book, from beginning to end, but I did find enjoyment in it. I had a really hard time with the characters - Molly came off as uptight and distant but once she warmed up to Jake she was more likable and when we're given more details on her history (finally) her initial impression is more understandable. But Jake... I wanted to like him and he came off as a nice and affable guy, who really cared for

I don't usually read books which are (on the face of it) potentially about cheating.  And yet, I chose this one.  Fortunately, that wasn't a mistake, because whilst Jake skirts very close to the line, in the context of this story, I don't really think that he crosses it.  And that is as much as I am going to say for fear of spoilers.  

These two protagonists are a bit of an odd match up.  For an apparently switched on lawyer, capable of holding her own during an extended interview process, Molly

I struggled a little with this one and it had nothing to do with the writing or the story or the characters. I just couldn't get into it. Jake was a southern gentleman and very kind but conflicted with his feelings for Molly. Molly drove me crazy. She was indecisive, on a "I don't need a man" mission and overall I just didn't love her character. The book and story were very well written, the secondary characters added to the story which is why I inevitably finished it. I didn't hate the story, i ...more

Finding a Husband by Kristen Casey is my first read by this author and from the blurb I was looking forward to the read... however, I really struggled to get through this book. I think my biggest issue was that I didn't like the characters all that much.

The writing was good, and the other characters were fine, but there just wasn't a lot to this story that drew me in and kept me wanting more.

Overall, the book was okay, just not for me.

Molly O’Connell is in Wilmington, NC for a two week job interview. Her BIL arranges for his "friend" Jake Alexander to show her around town (we never find out why but no one likes the BIL). He is a prosecuting attorney who never seems to work and is able to take time off whenever he wants. BTW he's engaged.

Finding a Husband is my own book, so naturally I like it—but these characters are so close to my heart. Why?
First, let’s talk about Molly. She made one heck of a big mistake when she was still a kid, and is dead-set on not repeating history. That fact, along with her dim view of her parents’ choices, is hampering her ability to see any man—but especially Jake—for who he really is. Until she can figure it out, though, she’s going to keep insisting she’s fine and keep finding herself alone.

“…Jake caught the briefest glimpse of a demure set of pale pink lingerie, and then Molly was airborne—jumping feet-first into the deep end. She swam underwater like a mermaid, finally coming up for air near the center of the pool. Her hair was slicked back on her skull, shining and as dark as melted chocolate and Jake was frozen to the spot by
So. Much. Molly. All on display for him. God—she was really, really wet.

“Packing some heat there, aren’t you Officer?”
Jake looked down and yanked on the hem of his blazer. “Don’t you worry about that, miss,” he chuckled. “That’s for later.” He pecked her on the cheek and steered her toward the door.
“We have got to stop meeting like this,” Molly grumbled, irritated by his nonchalance. Her legs felt like jelly and she tottered on her heels, making her even more annoyed.
Jake steadied her—of course he did. “Really?” he asked, the soul of civility. “I disagree.”
