Waiting on Wednesday: How to Find Your (First) Husband

Waiting on Wednesday is a feature hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, showcasing book(s) that we are currently anticipating for their releases. This week, I’m currently looking forward to the release of How to Find Your (First) Husband by Rosie Blake. I thought that the premise was interesting and the tagline ‘A globetrotting quest to find true love’ is definitely right up my alley. There’s also a mention of a remote Malaysian island and Malaysia is my home country, so obviously I cannot wait to read this 😎

first husband rosie blakeIt’s a beautiful day in 1994 and the turn-out in the school playground is fantastic. Isobel is eight years old and marrying Andrew Parker, the boy of her dreams. Life is perfect. Then the ceremony is over, and a week later so is the marriage.

Twenty years on and Isobel is dressed as a prawn handing out promotional fliers outside an L.A. fish market. Her career is going nowhere and her love life leaves a lot to be desired. Nothing Isobel hoped for has gone to plan. Then, she catches sight of Andrew, her first husband, in the background of a TV news item and wonders: if she can track down Andrew, will she recapture the happiness that she felt all those years ago? Isobel travels the globe to find her first husband, via Cornwall, Devon and a remote Malaysian island, but is he really what she is looking for?

Expected publication: June 2nd 2016
