Product Details


"Rendered with humor and heart."—People

“Each character in this wry and beguiling book has a fresh take on love: how it tricks and blindsides us, makes us crazy, elated, sad; how we can’t stop giving it; how it ennobles our lives. 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

“In this spirited debut, Asher creates an unconventional family…As each character’s individual story is revealed, the reader is further enveloped by this humorous yet touching.” —Booklist

“Bridget Asher’s pitch-perfect ear for language, sly wit, and compassionate understanding of what it is to be human and fallible make this novel an undiluted joy to read. My Husband’s Sweethearts is a whip-smart, tender, and eccentric tale that chronicles all the ways forgiveness can come to us. Don’t miss this ride.”—Joshilyn Jackson, bestselling author of gods in Alabama and Between, Georgia

“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

"A gem of a story about love in its various forms, laced with biting wit and poignant moments…. Once you start, you won’t be able to put it down."—Newark Star-Ledger

“Quirky and quick-moving…. Readers will probably fall in love with My Husband’s Sweethearts.”—Associated Press

“A parade of memorable women keep the pages turning.”—Publishers Weekly

“Witty.”—Kirkus Reviews
