The First Husband

I'm a big fan of romantic comedies. I love watching them and I really love reading them!

The First Husband by Laura Dave is about Annie Adams.  She is a travel writer that is rarely home with her up and coming movie director boyfriend.

Her long term relationship is abruptly cut short when her boyfriend's life coach tells him he needs a break.   A break named Pearl.

After a  chance encounter with a new guy and eggs with lobster, Annie  finds herself in a whirlwind romance, married and starting a new life in a small town.  A life that she's not sure she fits into.

Annie's struggle to finally find a place that she belongs and love that she deserves makes for a very lovely story.  A story that I was sad to see end.

This is the perfect summer beach/pool read!  For more information and discussion, join me at BlogHer's Book Club.

This is a paid review for BlogHer Book Club but the opinions expressed are all mine.


  1. What's the BlogHer book club? This looks like a good book!

  2. I saw you put it on Goodreads so I did too. :)

  3. I might have to add this one to my list!

  4. I haven't picked up a book in WEEKS. What is my problem? I think Christian Grey did me in.

  5. This looks like a fun summer read, and I think your end of the school year gifts in the next post are very thoughtful and nice!

  6. Ooohh...I need a good summer read. And I love easy reads that don't take a bunch of studying and nose-crinkling.

    Definitely sounds like a good one!


I love you. You are my best friend! Your hair looks fantastic today!
