Based on the family from the best-selling Love in a Nutshell, the story of an heiress longing to marry for love or not at all. From the New York Times best-selling writing duo Janet Evanovich and Dorien Kelly, comes the story of a young woman’s search for true love.

While Jack and Eddie are off seeing the world, buying up businesses and building wildly successful careers, Caroline's stuck at home frightening off the men her mother hopes will ask for her hand in marriage.
When her mother sets her sights on the questionable Lord Bremerton as a possible suitor, Caroline struggles with her instincts and the true nature of her heart. She longs for adventure, passion, love, and most of all...Jack Culhane, an unconventional Irish-American bachelor with new money and no title. A completely unacceptable suitor in the eyes of Caroline's mother. But Caroline's dark hair, brilliant eyes and quick wit have Jack understanding just why it is people fall in love and get married.
Set in New York City in 1894, The Husband List is an American gilded-age romantic mystery. It evokes memories of the lavish lifestyles and social expectations of the Vanderbilts and Rockefellers - a time when new money from the Americas married Old World social prestige and privilege. Dresses by Worth, transcontinental ocean voyages, lavish parties, a little intrigue, and a lot of romance await in The Husband List.

I enjoyed the mechanations of this story, but the ending is a bit too "tidy" and almost unfinished in a way. The couple winds up together, but the antagonist just goes away, not really dealt with at all.
I was expecting more from Janet Evanovich...I barely got through the first couple of minutes of the book before turning it off.
Lorelei King is great for the Stephanie Plum series but when she reads other stories you still picture Stephanie Plum characters which makes it hard to imagine the story line.
I would listen to The Husband List again. It was funny witty and fast pace.
Lorelei King did a good job with the story though this was not her best performance it did not take away from the story.
Not many books make be laugh out loud but this one did.
Good story, but I really hate that Lorelei King is the narrator for books other than the Stephanie Plum series. As I'm listening to the book, I keep picturing Stephanie Plum. This kind of diminishes the audio experience for me.
