    One thought on “The Husband Lesson”

    1. After I finished this book I just felt…meh. It doesn’t really feel like it was a romance novel. There is a happily ever after, but it comes at the very end of the book. The couple never even goes on so much as a date throughout the book. Karan and Charles do share a past, which makes the HEA more believable, but I just felt like something was missing. Most of the story is about Karan and her self-centered behavior. Karan sees the world in one way - how it affects her. This changes as she vis [...]

    2. Real people, real problems. A badly broken marriage. Misconceptions, misunderstandings and lack of communication. Fate decided to challenge all of this by forcing Karan and Charles to revisit their past. Having been charged with drunk driving (Karan has issues with low blood sugar and just a zip of alcohol might give the wrong impression), Karan was sentenced to community service at the shelter where her doctor ex-husband volunteered. Second chance romances when done well are a treat. I enjoyed [...]

    3. Ok, so this is one of those Harlequin Super Romances, but I have to tell you right off the bat that I think there is a ton of stuff in this novel that is very substantive. Certainly the two main characters are smart, intelligent, professional, worldly, yet they are ex-spouses and they are both carrying around a TON of baggage, much of which they don't even know how to decipher or have chosen subconsciously not to deal with.That being said, it is evident that Karan is a woman who has drawn strong [...]

    4. OK, so this is one of those Harlequin Superromances, but I have to tell you that I stayed up well past my bedtime to finish this one. A well-to-do socialite, now once again single after her second divorce, finds herself in court with a drunk driving charge against her. The judge is an old adversary from high school days when Karan was the queen of the "stuck-ups" and the judge was one of those kids on the outside looking in. The tables are well and truly turned. Her attorney successfully lobbies [...]

    5. Most of my favorite categories are part of the Harlequin Superromance line. This book is a good example of why this is true. I like my romances rich in contexts of family and community, and I prefer my hero and heroine to be adults with a history, some baggage, and some growing room. Jeanie London provides all these things in The Husband Lesson. I particularly liked that this book was more than just another reunion romance. A twice-divorced heroine who is in court charged with impaired driving i [...]

    6. This is a book that could have been a lot better than it was. Karan is the (ex) wife of a (actually two) wealthy doctors. She spends her days flitting from this to that, involved in politics and parties, and one day at a party for a candidate, she did something she never did--she drank too much, and then got behind the wheel of a car. She ended up in court in front of a judge with whom she went to high school "Wannabe Jenny" (who had tried out for the cheerleading squad when Karan had been capta [...]

    7. My grade: B+. I really liked this story. It attracted me because of the different premise. A woman is convicted of Driving While Ability Impaired (combination of low blood sugar and alcohol below the legal limit) and is sentenced to community service at a domestic abuse shelter. Her first husband is the director and they have a lot of unresolved issues. She's also a Country Club Barbie. Very sharp but no passions to direct her mind toward. Part of her sentence is mandatory counseling. Both Karan [...]

    8. Reviewed at: Library of LightsDate reviewed: 4 May 2011Review link: mykindaland/?p=232The Husband Lesson by Jeanie London is a little bit slow-paced for me and i found it difficult not to skip a few pages until some point of the story. But the paced picked up soon after and I found that the book is not only romantic, but full of moral as well.I just wish that there’s more romance in this story instead of too much description on the social work and whatnot. The ending somehow disappointed me. I [...]

    9. There's a lot of in the head stuff in this book. I liked the author's idea that you can't control other people's actions or responses, just ensure your actions allow you to look yourself in the eye at the end of the day. I liked it other than I thought that the two main characters got together way too easily - they didn't even seem to talk about their problems.

    10. Not a light and fluffy read by any means.Ms. London writes a second-chance story that really puts the hero and heroine through the wringer, and not really in the "fighting zombies and the establishment and the end-of-the-world" kind of sense. One that gets you thinking as it dives into the hearts and minds of the characters.

    11. Good ol' romance with a hint of comedy. It's always nice to read a book where you see the characters grow with every chapter. Once you pick it up and start reading, you'd be surprised that you can't seem to put it down.

    12. Good reunion story. I'd have liked a little more of the hero's issues-how his past related to his avoidance-but overall I liked it a lot.
