Review: The First Husband by Laura Dave

Laura Dave has already won adoring fans everywhere from Hollywood to the heartland. Now, with a slew of rave reviews and astute insights about modern love, The First Husband is certain to deliver her breakout success.

Los Angeles–based travel writer Annie Adams thinks she has it all. Nick, her longtime film director boyfriend, has finally hit the big time, her column is syndicated, and they've got a great dog. Then Nick moves out. Three months later, Annie is married to Griffin, a down-to-earth chef with a restaurant in the Berkshires. When Nick asks for a second chance, Annie is torn between her husband and the man she might have been meant to marry.

Received for review.

This was my first experience with the author and I was intrigued but not particularly thrilled by the experience. The book was okay and fairly typical chick lit although it did seem more mature than most of the genre. It was well written and had a nice flow but I really couldn't care less about the characters or their situations. They just weren't that believable or interesting.

I'd recommend this to those looking for a more emotionally mature chick lit option.
