Review

A fresh funny take on the search for a soulmate. --People Magazine

A wry, intelligent novel that is playful, unpredictable and emotionally resonant. --USA Today

What distinguishes Dave are her keen observations about the difficulty of creating lasting love in a freedom obsessed society. A decadent novel with an ending as satisfying as cream cheese frosting. --Marie Claire

Compulsively readable. The story has it all: a heroine I couldn't help but root for, a budding romance I wanted to succeed, and an ending that left me smiling. --Woman's World

Positively shines with wisdom and intelligence. What truly sets Dave apart from her peers is her ability to convey the contradictions and imperfections, the inherent impossibility of true love, and yet somehow still make you believe in it. --Jonathan Tropper, author of This Is Where I Leave You

In an honest and heartfelt tale, Laura Dave masterfully explores the big questions: Should you have said yes? Waited? Answered that call you ignored? Filled with sparkling wit and pithy observation, The First Husband is everything I love about contemporary women's fiction. --Jen Lancaster, author of If You Were Here

For anyone who wonders if she has found 'the one, ' The First Husband is a wonderfully witty novel about love and loss, and about how to find a happy home. I loved every moment, every page, and you will too. --Allison Winn Scotch, author of The One That I Want

You want meet-cute? Young women and wrong men? Burgeoning careers and best friends? Dave's your gal. --Washington Post

Fizzy, amusing. --Entertainment Weekly

An inspring account of a woman who ceases her external travels to become her own compass. I have more insight into my own life after reading this book, and I thank Laura Dave for that gift. --Publishers Weekly

The First Husband is a witty and insightful look at love and the human dilemma of making the right choice about marriage. --Psychology Today

[A] page-turning story about modern love and what makes one feel safe and at home. It is sure to attract readers who enjoy Emily Giffin. --Library Journal

Clever, funny, relatable, and not predictable. I was completely wooed. --Yahoo Shine
