A MOST SUITABLE WIFE is a light-hearted story about a woman seeking a roommate to keep her nice apartment after her roommate leaves. She's shocked when her applicant is a man claiming to be an artist. She's even more shocked at how aloof and rude he is. Not that she has much time to think about it: her money-grubbing mother is draining her finances to keep up her elaborate lifestyle while also pressuring her younger brother to drop out of college so she can siphon his money as well. What a horrible woman LOL.
There isn't too much to say about this one except that, obviously, there's more to the artist guy than meets the eye, and the heroine isn't who he expected at first, either. Despite the use of jealousy to further the plotline and a series of misunderstandings, I didn't mind this romance much and I thought the ending was sweet and satisfying (although I wish her mother had gotten her comeuppance-- she was so awful).
3 out of 5 stars
