An engaging romantic-comedy that will captivate one’s heart and tickle the funny bones, Husband in Waiting is a remarkable humor-filled story that is definitely hard to miss. Written by author Robert J. Woolsey, this compelling literary masterpiece introduces the unique adventures of a couple whose unconventional relationship leads them to a helter-skelter journey all across Europe.

In this exciting book, readers will take a glimpse into the exhilarating lives of Kurt Hanrahan, a political reporter for a large newspaper in Vienna, and his wife Toni, a feisty woman whose eccentric ideas have gotten them both in hot water. In this riveting page-turner, one will explore the fun-filled antics of the married couple who agreed to hide their marriage for one full year from their family, friends and acquaintances. For no true logical reason at all, the two continue on with their single lives, living separately from one another.

The funny episodes in the story reveal how the couple’s secret pact eventually backfires, turning their personal lives topsy-turvy as they both have to go through putting up a show for everybody. A capricious series of events leads them to a crazy roller-coaster ride within that one year of protecting their most precious secret. Pushed to face Toni’s family, Kurt has to disguise as her fiancé, but things go haywire as a myriad of shocking and unexpected twists and turns lead them to utter disaster. Readers will be excited as they figure out how the two could manage to pull off a conjugal deception, without getting caught.
