Read With Audra Blog Tour: Husband Auditions by Angela Ruth Strong

How far would you go to find the perfect husband? All the way back to the 1950s?

In a world full of happily-ever-after love, Meri Newberg feels like the last young woman on the planet to be single, at least in her Christian friend group. So when she's handed a strange present at the latest wedding--a 1950s magazine article of "ways to get a husband"--she decides there's nothing to lose by trying out its advice. After all, she can't get any more single, can she?

Her brother's roommate sees the whole thing as a great opportunity. Not to fall in love--Kai Kamaka has no interest in the effort a serious relationship takes. No, this is a career jump start. He talks Meri into letting him film every silly husband-catching attempt for a new online show. If it goes viral, his career as a cameraman will be made.

When Meri Me debuts, it's an instant hit. People love watching her lasso men on street corners, drop handkerchiefs for unsuspecting potential beaus, and otherwise embarrass herself in pursuit of true love. But the longer this game goes on, the less sure Kai is that he wants Meri to snag anyone but him. The only problem is that he may not be the kind of husband material she's looking for . . .

With droll comic timing, unbeatable chemistry, and a zany but relatable cast of characters, Angela Ruth Strong has created a heartfelt look at the reality of modern Christian dating that readers will both resonate with and fall for.

I really enjoy Christian Romance books, so I was really interested in reading this book. I also like that it has a 1950's time theme, as the 50's are a cool decade. Husband Auditions by Angela Ruth Strong is the latest book that I have read. Angela Ruth Strong is a new to me author and I am always interested in new to me authors. 

Meri Newberg feels she is the only person who is still single, at least among her Christian friends. Meri is inquisitive about an article she receives one day. The Article is from the 1950's and is titled "101 Ways to get a Husband". She reads the article and decides to tackle the list to see if the list has any truth to it and can she find her a Husband. Kai Kamaka is her brother's roommate and an aspiring Cameraman. He asks Meri if he can film her for an online show as she goes through the list and she agrees to be filmed. Kai named the show "Meri Me", and when it debuts online it is a HIT!! Everyone who has seen the show is loving it. Kai and Meri continue filming episodes and Kai has a new hope. Although Kai has no intention of falling in LOVE with Meri, he finds himself hoping Meri doesn't find a husband through her antics of going through the list. He is actually hoping she falls for him and wants a chance at a relationship with Meri. Will Kai have a chance with Meri? Does Meri find herself a Husband by following the list or is LOVE right in front of her and has been for a long time? 

WOW, just WOW! I LOVED this book from the very first chapter. I like the fact that the theme is focused on a List from a magazine article from the 1950's. Magazines from the 50's truly had some of the best things in them. Meri is such a fun loving and determined woman. Kai is a motivated and career minded guy, but also has a good sense of humor. Meri is an introvert, but through doing these antics she is learning so much about herself. I was laughing, I was crying, I was involved in this book!! AMAZING BOOK! I highly recommend this book for those who love Christian Romance with Humor and Fun!
