by Jean Joachim

Blurb:
Can happily ever after start with a list? Grey Andrews thinks so. After ten years of working, saving and investing, Grey finally achieved a level of wealth that allows him to do what he wants with his life. He needs a woman to share it with, but not any woman, the perfect woman. A woman who has the three essential qualities on his marriage list. But after three years of searching he isn’t any closer to finding her than he was when he started out.
Carrie Tucker, an aspiring mystery writer and divorcée struggling to make it in the world of advertising, turned her focus from men to her career after dating too many creeps and losers. She’s finally earned her big break, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to become the first female creative director in a hot New York ad agency. So what if it means working nights and weekends? It’s not like she has a social life anyway.
Is the marriage list a failure or will a chance meeting at a fiction-writing conference prove the list to be the key to Grey’s happiness after all?

Allyson’s Review:
Another great read by Jean Joachim. I just love her books and this one didn’t disappoint. Grey had planned everything of his life, he wanted Financial Success before ever settling down and getting married. When he decided he was ready, he was talking with 3 of his married close friends, instead of being a Happy ever after conversation it was a gripe fest. Grey then after talking to his sister makes a list of qualifications, he Feels are important. Grey was extremely kind and good-hearted just was approaching marriage the same way he did business. But on the same hand he just wanted a lasting marriage. Then He meets Carrie. Carrie is career driven, fun, passionate, but has been hurt. The Marriage List had me laughing out loud as well as pulling for Grey and Carrie. This was a great read, I highly recommend!
