Think you can trust your husband? Think again!
That’s what the gossipy types at Erica Bentley’s new job say. Even her (multi–divorced) mom agrees. But Erica’s sure she knows her husband, Tom, better than that. He says he loves her, and shows it in a million ways. Except…he has been working extra–late these days. And he’s been kinda quiet. Even secretive.
Happily married Tom Bentley never thought his head could be turned—until he saw Clara. Her sleek body has him longing, and he can’t get her 127″ wheelbase out of his mind. That’s right. Erica’s “competition” is…a car.
The beautiful Buick has Tom completely car–crazy. And Erica’s sleuthing is making her just plain crazy. One of them needs to come clean with their newest obsessions, before Clara drives their happy marriage into a ditch!
The Bentleys Buy a Buick by Pamela Morsi is a delightful romance that is sweet, humorous and, sometimes, a little poignant.
At the book’s opening, all is well with Tom and Erica Bentley’s marriage. However, Tom’s loyalty to a long time friend, Erica’s gossipy, catty co-workers and Tom’s sudden long hours at work quickly cause Erica to doubt his fidelity.
Ms. Morsi writes strong character driven novels, and The Bentleys Buy a Buick is no exception. Her characters are ordinary people living a common everyday life. None of them are perfect, but that adds to their appeal and makes them easy to relate to.
The Bentleys Buy a Buick by Pamela Morsi is a well written book that is romantic and realistic. It is a charming and understated story that slowly sweeps the reader deep into the heart of the Bentley’s marriage and their day to day life. Definitely a recommended read for anyone who enjoys relationship based novels.
