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. The Story Behind the Story
 “The idea for Husband Auditions came from a real article, ‘129 Ways to Get a Husband,’ that was published in McCall’s magazine in the 1950s. Some of the suggestions were quite outlandish, such as standing on a street corner with a lasso, and I imagined what would happen if a modern-day woman tried them out,” the author explains. “When I created an original list for my book, I went to my reader group on Facebook for ideas. We had such a great time with all of them, and I can’t wait for my readers to see which of their ideas made it into the story.” What Readers Are Saying “Enjoyable Christian fiction with a strong spiritual message combined with swoony, sweet romance, and humor, make Husband Auditions an entertaining read. You’ll thank me for telling you about it!”- Phyllis at Among the Reads “Husband Auditions is fresh, full of life, and often adorable. It’s also quite truthful and NOT at all predictable. And Kai and Meri are surrounded by excellent side characters. I was not only captivated by the protagonists’ stories, but by their inner dialogues and journeys. I highly recommend this irresistible book. You will not want to put it down…and you’ll be left wanting more!”- Melanie at Finchnwren “I liked the message of Marriage not being an easy thing and something that requires people to commit, work, and grow together. Also important in the story was the message that you really can’t change someone else, they have to want to work for permanent change.”- Emily at Read with Emily “Oh my goodness, y’all! Husband Auditions has it all – hilarity, heart, faith, friendship, and super swooniliciousness. There were moments I laughed out loud. Moments I wiped a few tears away. And moments when I had to remind myself to breathe from the crazy-romantic tension combusting through the pages. Mostly, though, I just grinned the whole adorable way through this story.”- Carrie at Reading is My Superpower About the Author Angela Ruth Strong sold her first Christian romance novel in 2009, then quit writing romance when her husband left her.
