Outlandishly funny, outrageously hilarious, what a riot!!! You're sure to be rolling down the aisle clenching your stomach in painful delight as laughter guffaws out of your lips. Quirky and unique, this love story will charm your socks off!
Just know Kai and Meri absolutely belong together, no matter how hard they try to convince each other that the opposite is true. Watching them dare to deny what's happening right in front of them is part of the charm of Husband Auditions. Read "The List" to find out what lengths they are willing to go to achieve a goal they set for themselves. Kai, to land his dream job and Meri, to snag a husband. Yep, this one is worth the sleepless nights because you can't put the book down and the bleary eyed mornings with extra cups of coffee to try to help pry your eyes open.
Probably one of the best Rom-Coms I've read to date, almost rivaling that of Bethany Turner. I'd hate to see these two in the same room together because I bet you'd not be able to catch your breath due to the lack of oxygen from laughing so hard.
Whatever you do, DON'T miss this book!

With loads of laughs, witty dialogue, and hilarious predicaments, Angela Ruth Strong’s newest book, Husband Auditions, kept me entertained and turning pages. Meri and Kai are realistic, colorful, and fun characters and the premise of the story is comedic genius. A list of 101 Ways to Find a Husband from the 1950s gets handed down to Meri as the last of her friends to be single. When Kai suggests she use the list to try to attract a husband while he films her for social media, hilarity ensues.
Strong’s unique sense of humor and skill with words combine for an enjoyable and thought-provoking tale. Sometimes you find romance where and when you least expect it. Although this is a romantic comedy, there is depth and wisdom and a strong takeaway of faith, hope, what to look for in a marriage partner, and how to become a good marriage partner. I recommend this book to those who enjoy romcoms with an underlying inspirational message.

Zany, quirky fun.
Told in alternating chapters from the perspectives of Kai and Meri, this has snappy banter and a slow realization that what Meri is looking for is right in front of her.
Both Meri and Kai are works in progress. They try to honor God but even though they are both single and just over 30, they are a bit immature. Mom advice for Meri: Nobody can avoid pain in life. My job as your mom is to point you to your Heavenly Father who can heal your pain. His love is the only kind that never fails.”
Meri is the last of her besties to get married so she inherits an odd list of HOW TO CATCH A HUSBAND, from a magazine of the 50s. Kai convinces her it would be fun to turn the list into a YouTube show, while doubtful that it will really work. Meri goes along with it to hilarious results.
Kai observes Meri: “She narrows her eyes. I think she’s trying to look menacing, but with all those freckles, she’s as scary as a toddler in time-out.”
One item had me reaching into my memory: *#40 Never outshine your man in any athletic activity. Men have sensitive egos and usurping their sportsmanlike prowess will lead to the demise of your relationship.” This proved to successfully deter a boy when I beat him at bowling and I am terrible at bowling!
Do not miss this madcap story when everything seemingly goes wrong. A mix of silliness, romance and spiritual lessons.
Kai: “My eyebrows dance in confusion.Up. Down. Together. Apart. If I was a cartoon character, I’m sure they would have lifted all the way off my face.”
