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.
When Sophie is little, her father breaks the news to her that she can't marry him. She is heartbroken. Dad encourages her to write letters to her future husband in order to get to know the type of man she would want to marry. Sophie writes mostly about the crush she has on brother's friend, Hanno. Forward 10 years, Sophie is in Italy and runs into Hanno. They spend the day together and she is instantly smitten again. Until, he takes her to his place. She leaves in a rush when Hanno passes out, and his roommate Peter helps her back to where she is staying. After a series of events (all are hilarious), they end up kissing in the rain, and she runs away from him. Jump another 10 years, Sophie is back home for Christmas, and is surprised that Hanno is getting married. Peter is there and it starts a chain of events that don't stop until the last until the last page.
This book is very funny. Oh, the things that Sophie thinks. Peter is wonderful. Sophie's boyfriend Griffin, not so much. I really enjoyed where this story goes. Even though I was very happy with the ending, I thought a couple things weren't resolved, and I wanted more letters, but all in all, Letters to My Future Husband is full of laughs, humor, and fun. Sophie is a great character, but Peter stole the show for me. Loved him!
4 out of 5 stars.
