Take one deeply depressed housewife.
Add one unexpected windfall.
Carefully ford in one very handsome, very clever charmer.
Separate and discard one totally self-centered, slightly abusive husband.
Place all remaining ingredients into red-hot, shiny red convertible cruising on Route 66 and wait to see what happens!
Midwest Book Review
“The wild and unexpected can be ever the savior when one is in despair of the mundane. "The Ride" is the story of a housewife who has sunk into a deep depression from her everyday life and her marriage to an egomaniacal husband who seems to forget she exists. But luckily for her, money is on her side, as is her Knight in a shining red convertible. A thrill ride of a romance, "The Ride" is exciting reading, sure to please.” April 2009
Review by Victoria Dark, Author of Dangerous to Love
"As I followed the misadventures of Barbie, a 40-something underachiever, I laughed out loud in places, in others I found myself misty-eyed, totally sympathizing with the character. Funny, poignant, a little desperate in places, this book is a roller coaster of a read! Can't wait for Ms. Sutton's next effort!"
