“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!”
Tom is working later than ever at his auto repair shop. He has fallen in love with a classic Buick he is restoring. As he is not doing anything wrong he doesn’t see the need to give much explanations to his wife about his new longer hours.
After years as a stay-at-home mom, Erika has just returned to work in the medical records department of the local hospital. She is making new friends but the lunch gossip about cheating husbands and their “modus operandi” starts to sow doubts in Erika about Tom’s weird behavior lately.
The Bentleys Buy a Buick was a different kind of contemporary. It's about an already married and stable couple and the problems they encounter for lack of communication.
Both Tom and Erika are likable and realistic characters and their son Quinton is just adorable.
The Bentleys Buy a Buick was a fun and cute read. The only complain I have is that I found the cars analogies a bit overwhelming at times.
My Verdict: 3 Stars
