How To Find Your First Husband Book Review

Blooming Fiction, lifestyle blog, How To Find Your First Husband book review

It'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?

Review

Weddings in the school playground wasn't something I ever experienced but it's a sweet concept which can leave happy memories for those involved. This is partially the case for How To Find Your First Husband.
Isobel has spent most of her young adult life fantasising about her 'first' husband, Andrew. Although they hadn't seen each other in many years she continues to dream of a real future with her husband, who gave her a pipe cleaner as a ring.
If you love Rosie Blake read my review on How To Get A Love Life.


It isn't unheard of when it comes to people marrying their childhood sweethearts, but travelling the globe to find them is a totally new idea which I love! Romance in the 21st century takes a great twist in How To Find Your First Husband which will not leave you disappointed.

Throughout the plot there are many distractions and unique characters who all add to the flavour of the story. Love rivals, vain men and waterfalls create an amazing story which will make you fall in love every chapter.
My only let down for How To Find Your First Husband is the very abrupt ending. The story itself has no closure and stops on a mild cliff hanger. Regardless of this slightly annoying ending I enjoyed this book and think anyone who loves tropical climates and school crushes will also enjoy this book.
