Set primarily in Chicago, Finding Husband follows professor Gemma Dantes on her visit to Chicago for a conference. Gemma Dantes, a book-loving, film-fanatic romantic desperately wants to find herself a husband. She subconsciously combines ever literature hero and Greek god into the perfect personification of whom she sought. After scientifically working out that she is destined to be with a doctor and concocting elaborate ways in which to find her perfect match, she decides to give up on ridiculous ideas such as causing or faking injuries in order to meet a doctor.
Once in Chicago and unable to immediately check in to her hotel, Gemma decides to do some sightseeing. Unfortunately, she is mugged and left unconscious. On waking up in a hospital bed Gemma finds Dr. Mann in her room, who just so happens to fall into her bookish concoction of the perfect man. On questioning him about her injuries, he appears startled that she can see and hear him. Are her injuries that traumatic or is something more sinister going on? On making inquiries about the strange encounter with the doctor to her nurse, Susan, her day changes for the worse. Gemma finds herself drugged with a paralytic by her nurse, unable to move more than a struggle to blink, although her mind is unharmed.
With a jolt of surprise, Gemma finds herself out of her body and able to wonder the hospital. She encounters Dr. Mann and finds out that he considers himself a ghost and a victim of nurse Susan. Together they try to stop the psychotic nurse from fulfilling her dastardly plan of taking over Gemma’s body.
I really liked Finding Husband, the characters were well written with an exciting plot. This paranormal thriller certainly keeps readers at the edge of their seats, shifting between the real world and the paranormal world. The author has included something to keep everyone entertained, fantasy, adventure, action, ghosts and ghouls, love and murder, this book has it all.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
