OMG!!! I am so happy and excited that this book is finally out!!! I have been impatiently waiting for this the sequel to The Weight of Words for monthssss. You can read my review here.
You guys are absolutely gonna love Better Deeds than Words and why shouldn’t you? Our dear Guthrie surely delivered another “unputdownable” story.
Aubrey and Daniel’s vow to pursue their dangerous romance despite university regulations takes them down a path of secrecy and lies. With only six weeks left to the end of term, they’re under the constant watch of David Grant—Daniel’s “Dean of Students” father. If that weren’t enough to pressure them, Daniel’s checkered past also casts a shadow over the young lovers who continuously tempt fate until one wrong move leads to an inevitable disaster. Can they salvage a relationship when everything seems to be conspiring against them?
“I already have a few. I’m fine.”
She tossed three more tomato wedges on his salad plate.”Lycopene. It’s good for the prostate,” she said.
Daniel rolled his eyes and sighed.
“Prostate cancer,” Patty said to me in a hushed voice. “That’s what got Bradford—my husband. Never ate a tomato in his life. I’m convinced that’s what did him in. Although I read an article recently about the importance of regular ejaculations as well. Not that Bradford had a problem with that.”
I bit my lip to stifle a laugh. Daniel stared at her in stunned silence.
“You are having your oil changed regularly, I hope?” she asked him.
What the hell? Penny had said Patty was a corker, but nothing had prepared me for this! She was awesome! I blinkedback tears as I tried not to burst into laughter. Daniel, on the other hand, was choking on a mouthful of roast beef. I clappedhim on the back and handed him his water glass.
He gulped some and cleared his throat. “Jesus, Patty. That’s a rather personal question.”
“It’s uptight people who impede the distribution of important information. Don’t you think, Aubrey?”
“Oh, I couldn’t agree more,” I said, casting a meaningful glance at Daniel who narrowed his eyes at me.
He turned back to his grandmother. “Are you implying I’m uptight?”
“Implying? No, no, I was stating it as a fact. I happen to believe you need to extricate that rather long pole from—well, there’s no need to discuss the sordid details at the table,” she said.
Daniel put down his fork and looked back and forth between the two of us. “Huh,” he said, miffed. “Okay then. Allow me to put your mind at rest. My oil is being changed fairly regularly. There. Satisfied?”
He picked up his fork and forcefully stabbed a carrot. I hoped his comment wasn’t intended as an admission that we were involved in an intimate relationship. Patty quirked aneyebrow at me and I held up my hands as if to say, “Don’t look at me.” She surveyed Daniel expectantly and he cleared his throat.
“Unfortunately, I’m decidedly, um, self-employed, at the moment,” he said.
Isn’t it AWESOME??? Don’t you want to read it right now??? You should get your copy asap!!! Review coming soon!
