About the Author

Stephanie Bond was five years deep into a corporate career in computer programming and pursuing an MBA at night when an instructor remarked she had a flair for writing and suggested she submit material to academic journals. But Stephanie was more interested in writing fiction—more specifically, romance and mystery novels. After writing in her spare time for two years, she sold her first manuscript, a romantic comedy, to Harlequin Books. After selling ten additional projects to two publishers, she left her corporate job to write fiction full-time. To-date, Stephanie has more than sixty published novels to her name, including the popular BODY MOVERS humorous mystery series. For more information, visit www.stephaniebond.com.

Stepanie Bond is a great author. I first read all of her Body Movers Series and since then have started reading some of her others. This book was great. It holds your attention the whole time. Would advice anyone to read.

In the style of Jane Heller (Sis Boom Bah) and perhaps a bit of Olivia Goldsmith (First Wives Club), Ms. Bond has penned a great first single title story that has humor and angst, love and hate. All told in a way that will draw the reader into the lives of the 3 women(ages 50+, mid/late 30s, 20+) who were married simultaneously to the same man, and who find themselves all convicted of the crime of murdering him. Who did it? You'll have to read it to find out.

A interesting cast of secondary characters, intriguing story line, and three memorable ladies combine to make a novel you won't want to miss. From initial distrust and intense animosity, the three women must work together up until the very end to find out who did Raymond in. The author has created heroines for whom I felt compassion and sympathy and a bit of empathy, as I know women who *have* been taken in by con men like Raymond.

As the holiday season approaches, pick up a copy of Our Husband, curl up by the fire with a cup of your favorite beverage and treat yourself to an incredible story with a satisfying resolution.

I envy Ms. Bond's ability to put words on paper. I only wish I were one-tenth as good. Brava! And what are you doing for an encore?

Beatrix, Natalie, and Ruby Lynn possess the identical last name because all three women unknowingly share the same husband Ray Carmichael. The traveling salesman wedded Beatrix over two decades ago. He married Natalie about six years ago. Last year he made Ruby Lynn his third spouse. Ray has never divorced anyone. Legally, he has committed bigamy.

The trio of wives learns about Ray¿s marital status when he is hospitalized in Paducah, Kentucky due to a car accident. All three shows up, shocking one another, but not as much as they stun Ray. Not long afterward, someone kills the bigamist. The police suspect that one of his wives murdered him in a fit of rage. The three wives form a ¿club¿ to not only proves their innocence, but to uncover the identity of Ray¿s killer.

OUR HUSBAND is an entertaining contemporary tale centering on three females seeking their inner selves following spousal betrayal. The story line is amusing (especially Ruby¿s reactions) and often filled with suspense. Although well written, the three women never fully develop, as it seems as if there is one too many lead female charcaters. Ray remains an enigma, but that augments the amateur sleuthing by forcing the lead trio to reassess him by comparing notes. Stephanie Bond has provided readers with an enjoyable novel that successfully combines elements from romance, suspense, and mystery into a warm humorous cozy.

I found this book to be very entertaining. Three women discover their husband had two other wives and they try to figure out which one of them killed the jerk . Very funny read with lots of twists and turns along the way.

I have never read anything by Stephanie Bond, and the title intrigued me enough to try this book. It starts off just as it sounds, three women discovered they are married to the same man. Seemingly, one of them must have killed him, since, oh hey, he is dead. The book follows all three of them as they try to discover who killed him and how, because even that isn't really clear. The book is well written, it is easy to follow the three different characters and a enjoyable. Perfect for a rainy weekend, a summer vacation, or a long car ride. The killer took me by surprise, which was a nice twist, usually I figure it out half way through the book, and I love a happy ending...and that had a happy twist in it as well. So all in all, this book was just a light fun read.

I liked the book okay. I thought it was better than the prior book we read in the book club. The book is definitely an interesting read. She has an interesting writing style. I definitely couldn't put it down towards the end. I thought it was creative how these women figure out how their husband was murdered.
