I read NOT QUITE A HUSBAND out of order *gasp* after author Elizabeth Michels recommended the book in an interview.  I’ve always been fascinated with India and seeing it from this time period was a welcomed treat!

There are many things I loved about this story, but also some where it fell a bit flat.  First, this is a second chance story and I am a sucker for those.  Bryony and Leo were married while still young, but they also made mistakes and it ended up with their marriage getting annulled.  Bryony followed her heart’s passion of becoming a surgeon and now is now working at a clinic in India.  This is also the time when Leo decides to win her back and leaves London behind to visit her there.  Most of this book is spent traveling through India as Leo and Bryony makes their way back to London, and paints a beautiful picture of the places, the people and the history.

Bryony and Leo have this simmering passion that draws them together even sometimes against their will and circumstances.  But what drove me crazy was the lack of communication, and the assumptions they both make about the other and what the other wants.  Which sometimes was going against even the other person’s actions.  They could’ve used a sit down and plain conversation much sooner.

Once they return to London I was introduced to the Marsden family and I definitely know I want to go back and read the previous book and will continue reading this series.
