Oh guys, How to Find Your First Husband is Rosie Blake at her best I couldn t put the book down, literally It is the author s third book, and I had a pleasure to read all of them, and I think the fact that I rated all of them with five stars is speaking for itself I find the idea of the plot hilarious and brilliant at the same time, starting with a childhood wedding in a school playground brilliant, just brilliant , and then fast forwarding and taking us first to LA for some belly laughing scenes, then back to England and then to Malaysia, with some of the best views and embarrassing and awkward situations I think I haven t read anything like this before and I adored how Rosie Blake plotted the book and how she delivered a fantastic, original story.Our main character, Isobel, might have come a little stalkerish at time, but in a funny, funny way What actually happened that she wanted to find her first husband Well, her life didn t take the turn she was hoping for and instead of working in television, she was dishing out leaflets dressed as a potato for example, and her being dumped by her agent was the last straw This, and seeing Andrew on TV She couldn t forget the fact that Andrew dumped her only few weeks after their wedding in the playground, and then he moved out of the town, and Isobel didn t know why he dumped her And there was no divorce So, was she married now or not And well, Andrew s last words were like a curse, right That she ll never have ano
Review coming soon brilliant book I loved this book, so much that I read it in a very short amount of time It is full of amusing sections, incredibly sweet reminiscences of a childhood romance and a borderline stalkerish hunt for Isobel s first love For when Isobel was still in school, she and Andrew Parker had a wedding in the playground, however she was then dumped a few weeks later, and then Andrew left the school, and Isobel has been without closure since Unlike some of her childhood friends she never did the playground divorce thing with Andrew, and still considers them married, even after he cursed her to never have another husband Fast forward to adulthood and Isbobel is living in LA, doesn t exactly have the life of her dreams, and finds herself continually daydreaming about what could have been with her and Andrew So when she spots him in the background of a newsclip, she decides the only thing to do is to find him, and persuade him to fall in love with her What follows is a fabulous story as Isobel travels to England and then onto Malaysia in order to find him As much as I loved all the lead up and the initial search for Andrew, it was once Isobel was on the various flights to get to Tioman Island, Malaysia, that I felt the story really kicked up a gear, as Isobel starts to rediscover who she really is Any
Originally posted on ve read and love Rosie Blake s previous books so when I picked her latest one, I knew I was in for a treat and I was not wrong at all I found the premise for this story fantastic I mean, who didn t have a crush in school with the golden boy of the class And who hasn t wondered how life would be with him Well Rosie Blake takes it one step further Isobel, the star of the story, needs a change in her life so when she spots Andrew, her first crush and husband there was a ceremony in the playground on TV, she decides to go for it and chase him to the other end of the world.As you can imagine, this story is completely bonkers and I couldn t have loved it Isobel is such a great character, she had me in stitches than once and her ideas to seduce Andrew were just hilarious I had such great fun following her around the world and I fell a bit in love with Tioman Island, in Malaysia, where great part of the story took place Rosie Blake described it so well and the attention to detail was amazing If I closed my eyes, I could easily pi

First, let me say that I am Rosie Blake s number 1 fan I LOVE her newest book The Hygge Holiday So naturally, I had to check out all her other books Because that s what you do when you are in love with an author And my strong obsession with Rosie Blake is probably why I find writing this review a bit hard Because I was disappointed by How to Find Your First Husband The main reason being that I just couldn t identify with the main character Isobel Her quest to find her childhood husband she was eight because she feels like he will make her happy, just felt so ridiculous Who does something like that And then she goes and stalks him literally ALL over the worldI don t know I just couldn t warm to her The only good thing was Seb He made the whole story bearable I don t want to give away the ending ButCompared to The
I do secretly believe that if I hope enough somewhere Hogwarts does exist and one day I WILL receive my letter telling me I am a witch When Isobel Graves finds herself stuck in a dead end job and in an unhappy relationship, she decides to take matters into her own hands locate her first husband, the boy she married on the school playground as a child Travelling from Los Angeles to the UK, she learns that Andrew, the object of her desire, is currently volunteering on a remote Malaysian island, but distance is no barrier to true love.In theory this plot sounds great, but the execution was lacklustre to say the least I didn t care for Isobel or Andrew in fact, the only two characters I had any love for where Isobel s crazy best friend, Mel, and Zeb, a photographer she meets on
