Letters to My Future Husband by Lisa McKendrick
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Source: Purchased Kindle Copy
Genre: Contemporary LDS Romance
Book Description: Sophie doesn’t know what kind of man she’s looking for, so her father suggests she write letters to her future husband—and come to know him in the process. But Sophie soon learns her letters aren’t the most reliable key to her heart. This hilarious coming-of-age novel is a guaranteed laugh-out-loud read you’ll want to share with all your friends.
My Thoughts: As a child Sophie decided she was going to marry her dad. She was determined and unhappy when he told her he was already married and that someday an amazing man would come into her life that she would love more than him. In order to help her on her journey to finding the right man, her father gave her a diary to write letters to her future husband.
The story does a few time skips. The first Sophie is in Italy and comes across her childhood crush. Circumstances are not great and put her into a position to meet Peter, a young man she has an instant bond and attraction to. In fear, she ran from him.
Ten years later Sophie returns home for Christmas. She is successful and on track for her career. This time she has a boyfriend when she and Peter meet again. To make things more interesting, she starts dreaming of her future daughter, who humorously guides her to to making choices for her future.
This book was a light and clean read. I didn't like some of the characters that were part of Sophie's life. I was happy to see some of them go. I also liked that she learned that there are some key characters in life that you can't cut out, no matter how much you want to.
This book makes religious references to the LDS faith.
