Ever fall in love with the wrong person?
If that’s ever happened to you or someone you know, you won’t be able to put down this sweet and funny story of Katie, a prim and proper, 30-something mom, and Jack, an irreverent, 30-something dad, when they are thrown together in a huge, hard-nosed corporation.
The last thing they intend is to fall for each other, but they quickly discover they both love the same things, get a kick out of goofy pranks, and can never see enough of each other.
What happens will have you giggling, holding your breath, and feeling the enormous anguish that Katie and Jack feel as they are torn between their yearning for each other and their love and sense of responsibility for their kids and their well-meaning, if sometimes clueless, spouses.
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
“The Honorable Thing” is a gripping and touching story about love between two married persons – not married to one another. They share an enduring love, but also love their spouses and their children. They must make agonizing decisions and live with family disasters caused by their actions. So very touching. Well-written.
Karl Jacobs writes a poignant love story softened with a lot a self deprecating funny funny anecdotes. Anyone who has worked for a large corporation would enjoy the the relatable characters Karl creates which adds another dimension to the story. All in all worth a read!
Jacobs proves again that he can write an engaging story in a variety of genres. This newest book is a love story. He creates people who care deeply and experience emotions shared by many. This one drills into hearts.
Karl Jacobs knows how to tell a story and makes the reader really connect with the characters. I had moments of laughter, sadness and frustration throughout the story, as each character tried to find their happy place in the world. By the end of the book you’ll be questioning yourself….what would you have done?
I really liked this book. It is very well written and isn’t a terribly complicated story. Actually a very simple story of how easily a happily married person can fall in love with another. I highly recommend this book!

About The Author
When he was growing up in a rough part of a small Wisconsin town, his mother didn’t set the bar very high for her rebellious middle son. “Just don’t wind up in jail,” she warned him.
It took Karl Jacobs a few years to tame his mischievous spirit, but he wound up in a jail only once, and that was merely to conduct a newspaper interview with a St. Louis alderman arrested in a civil rights demonstration.
As a journalist, Karl was a senior writer and editor with the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, covering racial violence in Watts and Chicago and meeting newsmakers of every sort, including a U.S. Senator named John F. Kennedy, a charismatic civil rights leader named Martin Luther King, and the brother of the man who assassinated King. Karl later was press secretary for a United States Senator.
When he entered the business world, he worked in the headquarters of major corporations in NYC, New Jersey, and Delaware, winding up as a special assistant to the Vice Chairman of DuPont and a vice president at Prudential Financial and chief speechwriter for two of its chairmen and CEO’s.
Both of his novels grew out of this mix of experiences. His latest, THE HONORABLE THING, is the funny, deeply moving story of two 30-something people, both married, who are thrown together in a puritanical giant corporation and break all the rules by falling in love. His first, an Amazon bestselling thriller, was THE PRESIDENT’S KILLERS, inspired by the assassinations of JFK and Martin Luther King.
Born and reared in Superior, Wisconsin, Karl is a journalism graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison and later returned there to do graduate work in sociology as a Sage Fellow. He and his wife Kay met in high school band when he winked at her on a quarter bet with a fellow trumpet-player. He was 16 and she was 14. He won both the quarter and, eventually, Kay. They have three adult children and now live in Arizona.
