I could've sworn I had read Bettina Krahn's The Husband Test before. I know I've picked it up in the bookstore, fondled it, read the back cover... and I'm a big Krahn fan, so I have no idea how I missed it. But platitudinal mentioned it in a comment, the seed was planted, and I picked it up at the UBS last week. I figured if I had read it, it was worth a re-read.
Big thumbs up from me, but that's no surprise. The one critique I have for it is that the language is a bit more anachronistic than you might like-- but then, this is a pretty fine line for any historical novel; I mean, any reader knows you can't actually be historically accurate or you'd limit your readership to those fluent in Middle English.
Still, it's a romp, with engaging, human characters; witty dialog; and streak of tenderness a mile wide in both of the protagonists.
