Glenda’s love life is nonexistent to say the least, that is, until she meets handsome artist Chris Goodrich. Chris’s easy-going, carefree outlook on life couldn’t be more different than the 90-mph crazy train that is Glenda’s, but the more time she spends with him, the more she craves his calming presence, his sexy smile, and his steamy embraces. Is Chris the one to take a chance on?
Between the pressure of full-blown spin control mode, rapidly declining job security, refereeing two teenagers, caring for aging parents, and spending hours on her therapist’s couch trying to get past her ex’s crushing betrayal, Glenda finds love and makes the long trek back to happy.
My Book Review:
A political scandal, two teenage children, a manipulative philandering ex-husband, and a non-existent love life, how much more can forty-six year old political strategist Glenda Nelson handle in her life? Does Glenda have the time and enough energy for love when Christopher Goodwich, a celebrated artist unexpectedly comes into her life?
Red, White & Screwed is an entertaining romance novel that follows the crazy daily life trials and tribulations of Lancaster County Democratic Committee political strategist Glenda Nelson. Author Holly Bush weaves a humorous tale that easily draws the reader into the crazy arena of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania politics that makes up the demanding,stressed out, and overworked Glenda Nelson's world.
When Glenda's political candidate for the US Senate is caught having an affair ... a twelve year affair that is ... all hell breaks loose, and it is left up to Glenda to salvage the campaign. This single mother of two precocious teenagers, with aging parents to care for, and a philandering ex-husband whose crushing betrayal caused her to seek therapy sessions, has enough on her plate, but when she unexpectedly meets artist Christopher Goodwich at the county courthouse mural unveiling, she starts to think that maybe it would be worth the risk to find love again.
Red, White & Screwed is a fast-paced humorous political romance novel that kept me thoroughly entertained. You can't help but relate to and sympathize with Glenda as she tries to juggle everything in her stressed out life, one that is filled with enough daily trials and tribulations that would make anyone go bonkers. This is a fun story that has plenty of crazy political mishaps, humorous family drama, and a heartwarming unexpected romance that keeps the reader turning the pages. I loved the quirky and realistic characters, the drama and humor, and the witty intertwining of politics and romance within the storyline.
Red, White & Screwed is an enjoyable romance novel that provides plenty of comedy, laugh-out-loud moments, and a sweet romance that will leave a smile on your face.
