Susie B. Anthony Rabinowitz Gersten assumed her marriage was great--and why not? Jonah Gersten, MD, a Park Avenue plastic surgeon, clearly adored her. He was handsome, successful, and a doting dad to their four-year-old triplets. So when Jonah is found dead in the Upper East Side apartment of a second-rate "escort," Susie is overwhelmed with questions. It's bad enough to know your husband's been murdered, but even worse when you're universally pitied (and quietly mocked) because of the sleaze factor. None of it makes sense to Susie--not a sexual liaison with someone like Dorinda, nor the "better not to discuss it" response from Jonah's partners. With help from her tough-talking, high-style Grandma Ethel, Susie takes on her snooty in-laws, her husband's partners, the NYPD, and the DA as she tries to prove that her wonderful life with Jonah was no lie. A rare mix of wit, social satire, suspense, and a moving story about a love that just won't give up, As Husbands Go brilliantly turns the conventions of the mystery on end as Susie Gersten--suburban mom, floral designer, and fashion plate--searches not so much for answers to her husband's death as for answers to her own life.

The reader of As Husbands Go really put me off, she read well but in a boring way & this was supposed to be a mystery!!
Too much fodder about the newly widowed wife. Who turned out to be naive, believing everything she is told.
Also a fairly predictable outcome.
At the start she refers to her 'au pair' girls towards the end the kids are not mentioned at all.
I would not recommend this to anyone!

I thought this book was gonna be really good, and I was very disappointed. It could have something to do with the reader, I'm not a fan of her slow, precise diction, but also the book just didn't go anywhere....didn't love the characters and it was just a real bore. I couldn't wait for it to end. I'm actually surprised I didn't return it before I finished.
