Tunnel of love twists, turns in ‘First Husband’

Travel writer Annie Adams leads an exciting life. She visits exotic places and secret hideaways in search of the perfect story.

Upon her return from each adventure, she snuggles up with her handsome and charming boyfriend, Nick, who is struggling to make a name for himself as a movie director in Los Angeles. At the age of almost 32, Annie seems to have it all — a great career and a stable, if somewhat predictable home and romantic life.

But all that comes to a screeching halt when Nick announces he needs to put their relationship on hold while pursuing a former flame. Left with what seems like no chance at love, Annie searches for the closest bar in town in hopes of easing the pain.

As luck would have it, she meets Griffin, a chef who whips up the perfect recipe to steal her heart. Three whirlwind months later and crazy in love, Annie and Griffin have tied the knot.

With a bright future ahead, the two lovebirds set out for Griffin’s hometown with plans of opening his dream restaurant. Upon their arrival, their love is put to the test by family drama and emotional fanfare.

As Annie begins to learn more about her husband, she starts to question whether her rash decision to marry a man she hardly knew was the right one. She has to decide whether her love for Griff is strong enough to stand the test of time or if she just let the man of her dreams get away.

“The First Husband” is author Laura Dave’s third novel, and it is a rollicking journey through a proverbial tunnel of love. This fast-paced story puts a modern-day spin on finding happiness and true love.
