A Great contemporary family drama/romance with a strong moral
Tom Bentley has loved vintage cars since he was a boy, and in spite of his upbringing or lack of it he's turned into a respectable husband, father and business owner and there's nothing more important to him than his family especially knowing what it's like not to have one. He's now found a new love, a 56 Buick Roadmaster with a Continental Kit, and he's determined to do right by her and her owner to find just the right home for her. Erica Bentley is a good mother and a good wife in spite of her upbringing with a mother who changed husbands like underwear and never trusted a man further than she could throw him, she'd do anything for the sake of her family. Recently returned to the workplace Erica is bombarded by constant gossip which makes her question things going on recently in her own life. Tom is being secretive and there's talk about a new love in his life, can she compete with this "Clara", will she make the ultimate sacrifice to keep her marriage and family together or will she take a page out of her mother's book and ditch him.Was this review helpful?

This novel is like comfort food, it gives you that warm and fuzzy feeling, it combines a contemporary romance with a family drama and has a great moral message as well and that makes it especially nice to read in our too often throw away society. It's a tale that every married couple has gone through and some didn't survive, the emotions really come through on this one. The characters are engaging and enjoyably charismatic and the hero and heroine will steal the show as well as their son Quint and Gruffy too and Clara, well you'll just have to find out about Clara by reading the story. The love scenes are very sensual without being overly explicit.
You Must Read this novel if 1) you love a good romance 2) you want that bright tingly feeling 3) you love enchanting characters or 4) all of the above.
This is my first read by Ms. Morsi, but it won't be my last.

This is an amusing story line with a strong precaution to not jump to conclusions
Tom Bentley learns what love at first sight means when elderly Mrs. Gilford introduces him to Clara. He hated garage calls, but that was before the vintage auto repair shop owner and mechanic came to the San Antonio suburb Leon Valley and met the 1956 Buick Roadmaster. Mrs. Gilford has been the only owner having bought Clara brand new, but the vehicle has sat in her garage for the last decade due to her failing vision. He uses a trailer to take the classic back to his repair shop.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Tom's wife Erica wonders if her husband is having an affair. Lately he has worked late hours and has hidden why from her. Her serial divorced acrimonious mother and her workers insist he is cheating on her, but she wants to trust her spouse. Still she decides to conduct nocturnal surveillance of her husband only to learn he loves Clara with the sleek body.
This is an amusing story line with a strong precaution to not jump to conclusions but instead communicate, communicate and communicate. The lead triangle is nicely set up though a bit slow in anchoring the relationships before the story line shifts into first gear. Readers will enjoy this fun marital tale whiling humorously singing the Genesis' lyrics: "There must have been a misunderstanding; there must have been a mistake."
