“A breath of fresh humor in the land of romantic comedy! Laughter, sex, a hero to-die-for . . . what else could the romance reader want? My Favorite Husband is a laugh-out-loud hit!” —Sandra Hill, New York Times Bestselling Author

”Taking a page from movie classic My Favorite Wife, Pam McCutcheon dishes up a delightfully amusing and wacky comedy. Over the top fun and humor make this a screwball classic!”  — Jill M. Smith, Romantic Times (four stars!)

“My Favorite Husband is by far one of the most pleasurable books I have read this year. From page one the action never stops. I could not put the book down. I stayed awake into the wee hours reading and laughing and turning pages and laughing some more. The secondary characters are integral to the story, and provide tons of comic relief, but the focus is on Kelly and Chaz and the decisions they must make. The romance is poignant and sexy, and Chaz is the ultimate romantic hero. Ms. McCutcheon expertly intertwines laughter and fun within different plot threads, and just when I thought she had them all together, she adds yet another twist to this wonderful story! My Favorite Husband is a fun and exciting escape from everyday life, and is well deserving of Romance Review Today’s Perfect 10 award.” — Diana Risso, Romance Reviews Today 

“Five stars! This romantic comedy testifies that if something can go wrong it will go wrong! This is the best romantic comedy I’ve read this year. I read this book in a day. I couldn’t put it down. I carried it with me all around my house. Yeah, my husband thought I was totally bonkers, especially when I burst out in hysterical laughter.  My Favorite Husband is a must read.” — Melissa Alvarez, 

“Five Roses! This book was a riot from cover to cover, the laughs just kept coming. The scenes where Chaz and Spencer ‘compete’ for Kelly by having the best date are some of the funniest I have ever read. Think rappelling, spying, wining, dining, and of course a little lovin’. These two men are polar opposites, Chaz is Indiana Jones come to life and Spencer is a debonair man about town. How can one woman chose between two wonderful men like them? Well it is no easy choice, but to console all you happy ending fanatics, I will share one little secret—both men end up happy at this end of this book! I had a hard time putting this little gem down! If romantic comedy is what you like then take my advice and put Pam McCutcheon’s new novel, My Favorite Husband at the top of your shopping list!” — Jen, A Romance Review

“Reminiscent of the old screwball romantic comedies, My Favorite Husband will make you laugh until your sides ache as Kelly tries to straighten out the complicated mess her life suddenly becomes. Author Pam McCutcheon has used her considerable talent for comedy to catch and hold the reader’s attention as Kelly moves from room to room in the classy hotel Spencer had chosen for their honeymoon. She doesn’t move alone, but unwillingly with an entourage of self-interested characters who are hilarious in their efforts to complicate further an already tabled situation. Fascinating reading with a lighthearted look at the funny side of life. This is a great read for anyone with a sense of the ridiculous. A real reading adventure.” — Anne Edwards, The Book Review Site

“Using the theme from the classic Grant-Dunne movie My Favorite Wife, Pam McCutcheon spins an amusing romantic romp that captures all the lunacy of the 1930s screwball comedies." — Harriett Klausner


  • Solid book

    Expect the unexpected
  • Thoroughly entertaining

    By Shalynne1
    This book was clever and funny and, though based off of a very unoriginal storyline, took its own twist to make the characters and events its own. It did tend to drag on at times (after the first 150 pages I thought how can there possibly be another 330 of these??) but it was worth the read and I liked the ending.
  • Really Good Read

    By FleaBittenVarmit
    So many twists and turns. Just when I thought I knew where things were in a different direction we went. Would def recommend.
  • Very entertaining

    By Guess this
    I normally don't write reviews but felt the need after reading this book. As I was reading, I kept imagining this as a play on stage. All the twist and turns the poor "Bride" gets into. How light and funny it was. A little suspense and a lot of humor. You will want to read this one.

  • Shoot me

    By Cassiet14
    This was quite possibly the dumbest book EVER. It was free and seemed interesting. Epic Fail! I should be paid for wasting my time reading this foolishness.
  • Worst. Book. Ever.

    If you enjoy reading books, if the written word means something to you, do yourself a favor and stay away from this one. It's one of the worst, most amateur, self-evident, ridiculous things I've ever read. This author has never met a cliche she couldn't overuse and none of the characters or situations resemble real life at all. It's embarrassing. I want my money back.
