The Husband List
THE HUSBAND LIST Janet Evanovich So many men, so little time... New York City, 1894. Heiress Caroline Maxwell would like nothing more than to join her brother and his friend, Jack Culhane, on their adventures. While they are off seeing the world, she's stuck at home, frightening off the list of men her mother hopes will ask for her hand in marriage. Caroline longs for adventure, passion, love, and most of all...Jack Culhane, an unconventional Irish-American bachelor with new money and no title--a completely unacceptable suitor, in the eyes of Caroline's mother. Can Jack and Caroline find love, against all odds, with danger looming and despite the forces pulling them apart?

I expected this one to be quite sappy, but I read all Janet Evanovich books regardless. I was pleasantly surprised. A period book set in the 1890's, well written and I liked Jack & Caroline very much!

Full of anachronisms and stilted writing, but often enjoyable nonetheless.

Love her Stephanie Plum books, but this was nowhere near as entertaining. I just didn't get interested in this book at all and will be avoiding the historical novels entirely. A waste of my time.

Funny historical romance with an "almost" Duke, a hero who loves beer, an outspoken heiress. It was a cute read.

What a disappointment! I couldn't even get past the second chapter. For a book set in 1894, it was remarkably short on historical detail / accuracy.

Quite possibly the worst thing Evanovich had ever put her name on. 200 hundred pages of boring, follwed by 50 pages of plot - all wrapped up in the last 2. Don't waste your time - she has written much better things.

Cute Historical romance.. I like Evanovich's contemporary rom-coms much better...
