The second Evanovich Book I read was The Husband List. This was not a typical book from her. It was set in 1894 in New York City. Caroline Maxwell is a society girl who wants nothing more than to go to college, study, travel , however she has to follow her mothers wishes to marry a high in society. Her mother has her eyes set on a duke from England! Caroline has no desire for this, she likes Jack, her brothers best friend.
I really enjoyed this book once I realized what was going on in it. But that was my mistake, you see when I first read the year, I read 1984 instead of 1894..so I couldn't understand why they were traveling by ship to Paris, traveling by horse and buggy, plus receiving telegrams. Once I figured out what I had done...it was GREAT! The store was excellent, the clothes they were sounded beautiful. I recommend it.
