Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Each character in this wry and beguiling book has a fresh take on love…As Lucy and her husband’s sweethearts reluctantly form a family as unlikely as it is beautiful, I found myself falling—falling hard—for every single one of them.” Marisa de los Santos, New York Times bestselling author of Love Walked In and Belong to Me
“Rendered with humor and heart.” People
“Thoroughly enjoyable….readers will…fall in love with My Husband's Sweethearts.” Associated Press
“A laugh-and-cry novel whose plot includes equal portions of heartache and hope.” Chicago Tribune
“A gem of a story…You won’t be able to put it down.” Newark Star-Ledger
“Flashes of wit and a parade of memorable women keep pages turning as Lucy grows increasingly and endearingly confused about her feelings toward Artie, John and the rest.” Publishers Weekly
“In this spirited debut, Asher creates an unconventional family—one brought together by a flawed but lovable man and kept together by a wounded but openhearted woman. As each character’s individual story is revealed, the reader is further enveloped by this humorous yet touching tale.” Booklist
“Artie’s death…arrives affectingly, with a dash of truth, forgiveness all around, and the way cleared for Lucy’s future…This is a witty, oddly sweet curiosity with a thread of insight and a degree of promise.” Kirkus Reviews
“The narrator of this wry and thoughtful novel observes her world with snappy, unsentimental eyes, and yet she finds a way to soothe every broken heart around her—including her own—with genuine tenderness.” Katherine Center, author of The Bright Side of Disaster
