Book review for How to Marry Your Husband by Jacqueline Rohen

Currently 99p on the Kindle, I decided to treat myself to this book and I’m glad I did.

Publisher comments:

He broke her heart. Now it’s her turn.

Rachel has just seen her husband David kissing another woman and she knows her marriage is over.

To make matters worse, she has just discovered that her romantic destination wedding wasn’t exactly legal.

No marriage means no divorce. Heartbroken and angry, she and her friend hatch a foolproof plan:

Step one – Make David fall back in love with her.
Step two – Marry him
Step three – Divorce him and break his heart.

Simple enough.

Rachel just has to be careful that she doesn’t get swept up in the romance and end up falling in love with him…

My thoughts:

After being married for 21 years, the biggest issue in most marriages (including my own) is miscommunication. We are all so busy that we don’t actually see things correctly or listen properly – Rachel and David’s stories showed the consequences of this.

I enjoyed how the story was split between their two perspectives – suddenly something very innocent to one of them appears as proof of betrayal to the other. The story reminded me of a game of tennis – we were on Rachel’s side then bounced over to David, then back to Rachel. 

This is a romantic comedy perfect for escaping into during the current pandemic crisis. Slightly far fetched but good escapism.

Currently available in ebook only, the paperback will be published in July 2020.
