All hail the queen of fluff, Janet Evanovich. Do you the reader like books with well-drawn, predictable characters, sparkling dialogue that has nothing to say, and an ending, though mildly satisfying, that you can see from page 20? Then I have the book for you, The Husband List by the prolific bestselling author Janet Evanovich. This is the printed version of a marshmallow peep, sweet, likable, and all air and sugar. I apologize to the very large fan base of Ms. Evanovich but she is just not for me. I found the premise of a headstrong society heiress in 1894 New York with an overbearing mother and titled unwanted suitor irresistible even though I have never liked anything else by the author. I should have resisted. I did manage to finish the book so I didn’t loathe it but I could have spent my time reading something so much more worthwhile. Don’t get me wrong, I am no book elitist. I just like a different sort of book trash. Having said all that, many people will love The Husband List. Evanovich is a talented writer with a deft hand at plot development and likable characters, that is why she sells a bazillion books. Just not to me.
