Morsi’s entertaining novel explores the rewards and challenges of marriage through the eyes of two memorable, relatable characters. Though the pace of the opening chapters moves a bit slowly, the supporting characters are realistic, and the misunderstanding that drives the plot is believable.

Erica Bentley suspects that her husband is having an affair. He’s a mechanic who has been working late at his vintage auto repair shop and acting secretive. Erica trusts Tom and doesn’t want to believe that her embittered mother and co-workers are right to say that all men cheat. She decides to spy on Tom and find out the truth.
