Book Review: Eva Mallory's Husband Hunt by Katherine Dyson

Eva Mallory's Husband Hunt by Katherine Dyson book cover

AD* | Eva Mallory is the unluckiest woman in the world, a fact which is attributed, in her family, to their name, and has subjected every member to a lifetime of misfortune. After accidentally burning down the venue of her twin Hanna’s anniversary party, Eva discovers that her sister’s luck has completely turned around since her wedding day. In that moment, Eva decides there’s only one thing for it. She needs to find herself a husband too, and fast. But with the distractions of her husband hunt, Eva completely forgets about the family curse. But the curse has not forgotten about her...

Eva Mallory's Husband Hunt is a delightful romcom that weaves together equal parts of cuteness, humour, sweetness, and silliness, resulting in a highly enjoyable and entertaining read. While the family curse aspect might not appeal to everyone, the book's endearing qualities shine through, making it a charming addition to the romantic comedy genre.

The immediate and undeniable chemistry between Eva and Luke is one of the book's standout features. However, introducing the family curse as an obstacle to their relationship might leave you sceptical at first; it certainly did for me. However, if you're willing to suspend your disbelief and immerse yourself in the story's whimsical charm, you will soon discover a tale that is both heartwarming and engaging.

At its core, Eva Mallory's Husband Hunt is a light-hearted and hopeful romcom that captures the essence of finding love amidst life's challenges. The narrative revolves around Eva's quest to break her streak of misfortune by finding a husband. This premise sets the stage for a series of humorous and endearing escapades that certainly keep readers entertained.

Dyson's writing focuses heavily on character development, with the story being 100% character-driven. Despite their flaws being front and centre, the characters remain lovable and relatable, drawing readers into their journeys of growth and self-discovery. The transformation and evolution of Eva, in particular, is evident, adding depth to the overall narrative.

The book's charm lies in its ability to blend lighthearted moments with more profound themes. Eva's determination to change her luck is juxtaposed with her comedic and often silly endeavours, resulting in a balanced and enjoyable read. The interactions between characters, especially Eva and Luke, are infused with genuine emotion, making their journey from strangers to potential partners genuinely engaging.

So, if you're in the mood for a delightful romcom that will leave you with a smile, Eva Mallory's Husband Hunt is definitely worth a spot on your reading list.
