    This book is a mess. A really really big mess, starting with a stupid title (and dumber tag) and continuing on at just about every level. It stacked up until I just couldn't any more at a third in. The title and tag are probably the biggest misstep, if only because they set expectations that are disposed of by chapter two (where the letters stop, never to be heard from again).I can't decide if Sophie's mother is suppose to be read as funny or psychotic because everybody around her (including Sop This book is a mess. A really really big mess, starting with a stupid title (and dumber tag) and continuing on at just about every level. It stacked up until I just couldn't any more at a third in. The title and tag are probably the biggest misstep, if only because they set expectations that are disposed of by chapter two (where the letters stop, never to be heard from again).I can't decide if Sophie's mother is suppose to be read as funny or psychotic because everybody around her (including Sophie's dad) treat her outbursts like they're just amusing quirks. But her mother is a mean-spirited, destructive harpy with a cynical view of everybody around her and nothing but critical denigration for her daughter. That degree of outright evil needed to be shut down by at least somebody for me to take this book seriously. These are, after all, supposed to be faithfully Christian folks and allowing that degree of tearing down to happen to a defenseless child (Sophie when young, and who knows how many others) is irresponsible and partakes of the evil itself if allowed to progress long enough. So when the narrative voice implies that we should find her father patient and kind, I want to barf. That idiot failed in his first duty to his children by reproducing with the human dung-pile and after that disaster, by not taking every measure he could to keep her far, far away from everything innocent and good in the world—starting with his own children.I could almost have tolerated that as background but then we get narrative jumps at random times that break the flow and pacing all to crap. I suppose it's a mark of talent that McKendrick had me engaged with Peter and Sophie in their couple hours of interaction so far that I really wanted them to see how it would go. But then I'd have to take it away again for her breaking that to smithereens by having another "Ten years later" pop up. Seriously? Ten years just like that? That breaks everything that had been established, and not the least of it is making Peter look like a complete noodle for not tracking Sophie down. It wouldn't have been hard, she gave him enough clues that he could have found a way at least see if they'd fit as well as he (and the reader) suspected.And then there's the idiot Hanno. I completely hated Sophie's hang-up on the using jerkface. It wasn't like it was hard to see that he was as shallow as a painted puddle. And Sophie going along with him as long as she did made her feel like a limper noodle than Peter. So having him be the center of events again (after the latest time jump) just pissed me right off. Because you just know that even though this is his actual wedding, he's the kind of impervious weasel who might just make a belated play for Sophie, again!The final straw was arranging for Sophie to be engaged after the jump and when she meets Peter again. So now we're going to have stupid persistent barriers that amount to "I committed to a great guy who, yeah, doesn't float my boat, it turns out, but he's so nice". And I'm just so not interested in a bunch of stupidity built around that flimsy basis. Because we know she'll end up with Peter because we saw those sparks. And we know he's a good guy and that they're going to be perfect for each other. So every good thing we learn about the other guy is going to grate. And every bad thing we learn about him is going to grate even more (because why the heck is she with someone who doesn't fit her the way Peter does?!?).I think it comes down to being engaged with the characters and McKendrick seems to have gone out of her way to keep me from engaging with either. The big time jumps and the setup that seems designed for adding stupid barriers fills me with dread instead of anticipation so I'm going to stop before the train hits the brick wall.

He hopes that in doing so, she will get to know him and love him too. Maybe even find out along the way who it is she'd really like to marry. She is anything but thrilled about the idea...but warms up as she decides boys don't have cooties.

Maybe even find out along the way who it is she'd really like to marry. She is anything but thrilled about the idea...but warms up as she decides boys don't have cooties. The story jumps ahead quickly and she's off to Europe where her life is about to change forever.I was surprised by how much this book did eventually pull me in. Especially after reading the first few chapters. I struggled with it in the beginning because of the relationship Sophie has with her mother. Her father is adorable and is so sweet...but her relationship with her mother is definitely destructive. What relationship there is any way. Her Mother, though may be well intended in her own thought, is very critical and harsh. I struggled with her character so much. Most likely because she is the polar opposite of my own mother or the kind of Mother I hope I am. It definitely made me do some self checking to make sure I'm not or EVER will be that way. So sad. Anyway, because of that I didn't know how much I would enjoy the story. I ended up LOVING it though. I loved Peter's character,( a.k.a Hero)...he and Sophie's connection was very sweet. I did want to knock Sophie upside the head several times throughout the story but all in all I thoroughly enjoyed it. There was an interesting twist thrown in involving Sophie's future children that I found so different from anything I've read before and had me laughing out loud at times. This story was fun and enjoyable to read. It definitely had quite a bit of humor. This book was LDS fiction and I'm excited to read more by this author.

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.

    When Sophie was young, she wanted to marry her father and was devastated to learn that she couldn't. He gave her a journal and encouraged her to write letters to her future husband to help her figure out what she was looking for. She had a crush on her brother's friend, Hanno, and was sure he was the guy for her. Ten years later, her grandmother sent her to Europe. While she was in Italy, she ran into Hanno.

She was excited at first but that meeting turned out to be disastrous. She met his nice roommate, Peter, who she felt a strong connection with but got scared and ran away from him.Fast forward another ten years. Sophie is still single but has a super serious boyfriend, Griffin. She comes home for a visit and learns that Hanno is getting married. She goes to his wedding and runs into Peter again. He's also still single and lives and works at the South Pole. Super serious boyfriend Griffin surprises her by coming to town after all. Things are a bit awkward but that's also where it gets funny. Sophie starts dreaming about her future daughter who helps guide her to the man she wants as a father.Sophie was easy to like. She had a great sense of humor and made me laugh a lot. Her relationship with Griffin made me laugh as it was obvious to me what she should do but she did have some questions and strong feelings for him. Her relationship with her mother was difficult and complicated and I liked the realization she came to about that at the end. Peter was great at taking awkward situations and making everyone comfortable. I loved him from the first time we met him and was hoping things would work out with him, but super serious boyfriend Griffin was an obstacle.I had a hard time getting into this book but once it got into the present, it got much more interesting for me and I had a harder time putting it down. This book is a bit quirky, but I really enjoyed it! I laughed out loud a lot and enjoyed where the story went.There are some LDS religious references but I think anyone that likes clean contemporary romance would enjoy this book!I received a copy of this book to review. My opinion is 100% my own.Mel's Shelves

    Sophie isn't perfect, but really...who is? She's tall and has big feet, which, according to her mother, will make it hard to get a husband. At her father's urging, she began writing letters to her future husband as a young age, so she could learn what she wanted. There are times when she thinks she knows, but she really doesn't know as much as she thinks.Sophie's adventures take her to Italy with friends, where she runs into her old childhood crush, Hanno.

Her eyes were definitely opened in that situation, which led her to meet his roommate, Peter. Bizarre and hilarious situations followed. I was rolling my eyes and laughing at loud in parts, which was a lot of fun. I loved the way Sophie could imagine what others would say--the voices in her head; I loved the way she could be herself, hairy big toes and all; and I loved the way she follows after her dream and her heart.Fast forward ten years... Sophie is home for Christmas and discovers that Hanno is getting married. When she goes to the wedding, who should appear, but Peter. Sophie has a boyfriend, but Peter is such a good friend. I loved that Peter has the ability to bring out the good in so many people. He's a really great guy!There are so many fun, quirky characters and also some I had to hate. Sophie learns that some people aren't worth having in her life and others mean well, even it they're a little abrasive and are an important part of her life. There was a little situation that was interesting and a little strange--Sophie is able to see and communicate with her future child. At first, I wasn't sold on that aspect, but it worked for the story.Content: Clean romance (hint of current and prior hookups, but only kissing is mentioned); no language; no violence; mild religion (talk of LDS missions, baptism, scriptures--but only casual references, no preaching)*I received a copy in exchange for an honest review*

    So, the blurb makes it sound like this book is mostly about a girl and the letters she writes to her future husband. It really isn't. She writes in a journal when she is small and then she writes about her childhood crush. That's all in the first chapter or two. The journal doesn't even come back into play until the end of the book where Sophie goes back to the journal and adds a couple entries. I wish the journal had played a bigger part in the book like the blurb suggests.

I wish the journal had played a bigger part in the book like the blurb suggests. I didn't feel like Sophie came to know her future husband at all through journal entries. It was almost like a before and after thought.Having said that, there were some good moments to this book. I really enjoyed Sophie's trip to Italy and her initial meeting with Peter. I think that was probably my favorite part of the book. Well, the "rock" scene was pretty good too. Sorry, I'm not giving that scene away. You'll have to read the book to know about that one. It was amusing though.I wouldn't say that I found all the characters believable, but this is a work of fiction. Sophie's boyfriend is ridiculous and is really made to look that way. It made me doubt Sophie's intelligence. Why would anyone date someone so ridiculous? And Sophie's mother? I just didn't get her. This is an LDS fiction book with references to religious things specific to the LDS faith. It's not overbearing or anything but this is probably not a book people outside the LDS faith would enjoy.

    Cute. Oddly enough, I got this review copy from a non-LDS book review for which I do regular reviews, and I'm not entirely sure why the publisher sent it out to them. On one hand, it could *almost* be just written for general audiences, but there are just enough references to LDS/Mormon culture, practices, and expectations that it might not make complete sense to those who aren't very familiar with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and some of the cultural quirks its members can ex Cute.

At the same time, some of it doesn't quite fit with what some of my expectations would have been (let's be honest: many women in our faith get married before age 30, given the opportunity, and though the character's mother is always complaining about her daughter not being married yet, it still doesn't quite all "make sense" to me as it's written). And that mother! Sure, I'm willing to believe that there are women like her, but she doesn't quite fit into the narrative as it's written either. Those reservations stated, I enjoyed the book as a light and mostly fluffy read, and I found much to like about it. There were some really delightful interactions between the characters, in particular. I think this would have been even better given a few changes in the storyline and maybe a bit more commitment to the question of "is it written strictly for an LDS market or not".

    This book was nothing like I expected - in a good way! I expected the main character Sophie to share letters she wrote throughout her life interspersed with current relationships. Instead Sophie looks back on the few times she wrote during about a ten year period of time (age 5-15) after reconnecting with a great guy. Then she is visited by her future daughter.

    Cute, clean read! Took a little bit to get into it but then I really enjoyed it. I would have loved to see her journal/letters have more influence in the story. There was so much talk of it at first then it kind of disappeared. I struggled with Sophia's Mom! She was so rude and critical I'm surprised Sophia turned out as good as she did. Peter was a great guy and I'm happy it worked out in the end. :)

    3.5 Stars. I thought the premise of this story was cute and I did stay up late reading. I was a little disappointed in the whole love letter thing tho; Sophie really didn't write that many letters after age 10. Her mother was a piece of work and I felt bad for her dad. I felt this book had more potential than was realized, but still a cute, fun read.

Sofia is the main character in this book. It starts out with the way her she looks up to dad and it is very heartwarming and cute. The way she cried after her dad said she couldn’t marry her was the funniest thing! I cried because I was laughing so hard. After the first chapter it skips ahead ten years ahead into her life in Italy. In Italy Sofia runs into Hanno her childhood crush that she hasn’t gotten over. After a rollercoaster of twists and turns, Sofia meets Peter De Boom. They connect and Sofia ends up leaving Italy with a broken heart and Peter is left behind. Sofia has to go through several obstacles before she can finally figure out her love life, and finally start her happily ever after. I really liked this book because it sucked me in right away. I’ll admit that at the beginning I didn’t like the parts with Hanno in it, but I really enjoyed how Sofia stood her ground even though she had the biggest crush on him. I admired how even though she started weakening she never broke. I really liked how the author put real feelings into Sofia that were so funny at times. I also liked how Peter was so loving and caring and I wish there were actually guys like him. I loved how the book made me laugh really hard and I loved how I stayed interested in it the whole time. I could connect with Sofia on so many levels it was crazy! Her relationship is just like me relationship with my brother and I could completely understand how she was feeling. I also could connect with her with on how she was feeling about the male race. They can be so frustrating at times and you just want to kill them with kindness. Her relationship with Griffin was exactly that. I loved it the way she acted with Griffin. I was laughing so hard! I loved this book and I definitely give this novel a five star rating. Love and family are the two most important things in anyone's life that does not include work or money. Two examples of this is first, “I looked into the eyes of my future husband as a wave of happiness almost knocked me over.” The reason why I think of this quote is because, If we do not have love we can’t be fully happy. It is literally impossible. Second is, “She shook me softly by the shoulders. He loves you, Mom. Trust me on this.” I like this quote because, sometimes we don’t think anyone loves us, but there is always someone out there that does. No matter what.

Peter, Hannos roomate, walks in and sees that Sophie needs help getting back to her hotel. Peter agrees to take her there and they drive through the streets as perfect strangers. On the way back to the hotel they see a lady that has lost her wedding ring and they go to help her find it. After Peter finds it he confesses to Sophie that even though they just met that he loves her. She goes to another location the next day and leaves him there all alone. 10 years later Hanno is getting married to another girl so Sophie is going to the wedding. Little does she know that Peter will be there. Peter gets invited to stay for the holidays at her house. Sophie gets a huge opportunity for her career but is having trouble with ideas. Peter helps her with her campaign and it is easy to tell that they are falling in love again. One effect for this book is that Sophie finds Hanno and she goes back to his place because she meets Peter. Because she meets Peter he helps her come up with ideas for her big break when she thinks she going to fail. And last but not least because she met him she finds her one perfect true love and her future husband. This is a really good book! The main character is mormon so I can kinda relate more to her than most other main characters. She is just trying to find her one true love and has some fails along the way. This is definitely a 5 star book in my mind. It is beautifully written and is well composed. She is a very real life person and doesn't have her head up in the clouds like most people do in books. It seems as if it real when your reading it.

    3.5 I don't normally read these kinds of books, but my friend suggested I read it. First off, the title is misleading and it wasn't at all what I expected it to be about. I thought there would be more to do with the letters and unlike the blurb hinted, they didn't really help her find her future husband. But I did like the overall story. Some things were handled way too fast, and I would've liked to see the mother daughter relationship between Sofia and her mom have a more solid resolution.

Fast forward and Sophie has a crush on Hanno, and writes many slightly humorous letters to him in her journal. Running into him years later, after his marriage and divorce, she is determined that he is the one for her. But, things don't go as planned, and Hanno might not be the guy she thought he was. When Sophie meets a perfect gentleman that same night, and has feelings for him, she tells herself that it's just the air, and leaves.Fast forward again, to a thirty year old Sophie, tormented by her mother's comments about her tall frame, large feet, and single status. A business woman. A woman who might have herself convinced that marriage is more of a business contract, and that there is no such thing as the one. Enter in a goofy totally not right for her fiance, and a Mr. Perfect from ten years ago (and I'm not talking about Hanno), and a young preteen convinced that Sophie is her mom who visits Sophie in her dreams.This novel is written like a Hallmark movie (I love Hallmark, so that's a compliment)! There are plenty of laugh out loud moments (anyone know what a didgeridoo is?), need to have a talk with the main character moments, bautiful heart warming moments, moments when you feel so proud of the main character, and moments when you want to cry with the main character.Altogether I liked Sophie. She could be extremely frustrating, but her personality was interesting to read from. I felt so bad for her after the cruel things her mom said (even though she didn't mean to be cruel). I think every girl has a crush on someone at some point that they later thought was completely silly, and that aspect was pretty funny at times. I wanted to smack her on the head for keeping that fiance around for so long, too! I was totally rooting for Mr. Perfect (not telling who) the whole time, hoping he could show her that true love just might be real and not banned to fairy tales!The banter between Sophie and a certain someone were also pretty fantastic. I really enjoyed the time she spent with him. The night visitor was also very entertaining, and I just had to laugh at some of their interactions, and almost crying during others. I also enjoyed Sophie's interactions with her family, especially her dad, grandma, and brother and his family.Letters to My Future Husband was an entertaining read. With great points and morals, relateable characters who I couldn't help but root for, plus a Hallmark feel, what could possibly go wrong? This was also a great book to read around Valentines Day!I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This in no way affected my opinion, and all thoughts and opinions are solely my own.

When I started the book I wasn't sure I was going to like Sophie, but considering her mother's bossiness and almost constant negativity. But Sophie does feel genuine flaws and all. But I confess my favorite character was Peter. I think that's why I read the book so quickly, I wanted to see what would happen. I'm a big fan of good men and Peter definitely fits that definition. In fact, it's to bad that he isn't a rea I read this book in a day. I had to know what happened between Sophie and Peter.

In fact, it's to bad that he isn't a real character or I might go after him myself . ;)Despite the seriousness of the issues that Sophie dealt with regarding self-confidence and her difficult relationship with her mother there was quite a bit of humor in the story. Especially when Sophia starts dreaming about her future daughter. There interactions were funny and heart-breaking at the same time. It's a good thing most parents don't start with strong-willed ten-year-olds. The letters that Sophia wrote to her 'future husband' which is where the name of the book came from, but she gives it up when her mother discovers it. What is especially interesting is when she looks back at it after growing up. It's always interesting to look back at where we came from and it helps Sophia figure out what she wants and where she's going. A story with some interesting twists and turns, for example, the way Sophia initially meets Peter is definitely unusual. A book that I would definitely recommend to those who enjoy a different sort of romance with some interesting twists and turns.

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!Received a PDF from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    I would actually give this book 1.5 stars. I didn't hate it, but I would not recommend it to anyone. First of all, I think the title is misleading. I was picturing reading about cute little letters Sophia wrote to her future husband throughout her childhood years. That was not the case at all. I think only one letter was actually read and that was the first one she ever wrote at 6 years old, I believe. Then she writes a couple as a 30 year old that we get to read.

The whole story was completely unbelievable. I don't like it, either, when people fall in love in less than a day in books when they don't even know the other person. Sophia wasn't a very likable character, either. She was clueless, wimpy, and just a hot mess. How she ends up dating a lot of different men is beyond me because she is really just weird. Then the really unbelievable stuff starts happening in the middle of the book. I about groaned out loud and thought, "Are you kidding me?" I should have just quit reading then, but I rarely do that with books because I always think they will get better. That wasn't really the case here. There are such glowing reviews for this book, so apparently I am in the minority of not liking the book, so that should be taken into consideration.

    This book takes place in three different ages of Sophia's life: The first part takes place before the age of 10, the second part when she is 20, and the third part when she is 30.

As a 20-year-old in Europe she runs into her brother's friend, Hanno. She finds out the hard way that Hanno is not the right guy for her and then gets saved by his roommate Peter. Ten years later while visiting her parents she has an unexpected reunion with Peter. She also has an unexpected visit from her "super serious boyfriend" Griffin. She also started receiving "visits" while she sleeps from her future daughter - who has a definite opinion about who Sophia should marry.My 12-year-old daughter picked up this book and started reading it (before I had finished) and couldn't put it down (that's not typical for her)! We had to take turns reading it so we could read it at the same time! That's the first time that has happened with a book... I hope it happens with many more books!Content: Clean, some LDS references, but not a lot of religious contentSource: Book
