3.0 out of 5 stars Finding love again, 30 Sep 2009
This review is from: Not Quite a Husband (Mass Market Paperback)
I have very much enjoyed Sherry Thomas's previous books 'Private Arrangements' and 'Delicious', but found myself a little disappointed with 'Not Quite A Husband'.

The story had many good points, including an unusual heroine (who is a doctor) and a setting in India. However it was also a dissatisfying story, in part because the motivations of the hero Leo weren't really clear to me.

Bryony Asquith married Leo Marsden, a man she had loved for many years, but when she discovered him being unfaithful just before the wedding it soured their new life and she left him. Now, several years later, her father is ill and Leo has been asked to fetch her back to see him. But Bryony doesn't trust Leo and can't forgive him, but as they travel together through India and into danger, she has to re-evaluate what she believed happened in their marriage.

Sherry Thomas has a good way with words and I liked the strength of her heroine Bryony but I was unconvinced by the love story - why would a man like Leo fall so hard for her? It wasn't an unputdownable book, in fact I read a couple of others at the same time as this one, and some of the scenes in the siege in India felt a little perfunctory. It's a good read but not as good as her previous offerings.
