LoveReading View on Tenterden

This is a colourful quirky book filled with interesting characters and, of course, an attention-grabbing red sports car. This book may only be 141 pages long, but there's a lot of story packed in.

Chuck Tenterden is a fair-haired eccentric successful businessman who has what looks like the perfect life -  a lovely house with lush green lawns and golden gates, a young and beautiful wife and a flashy red sports car to drive around and remind everyone just how rich he is. But things aren't always what they seem, and not everything that glitters turns out to be gold.

This is an interesting book with a range of characters whose lives are all intertwined. The eponymous Tenterden didn't stand out to me as the main character as the book started so I was intrigued to see how he would come to the forefront of the story. I thought that this book had a hint of The Talented Mr Ripley about it. I mean that there's an eccentric main character masquerading as someone he isn't, with more money than he has, with a darker undertone lurking in the shadows in order to keep his charade and maintain his standing. Those who are fans of the Highsmith classic may be interested in this book.

A fast-paced story that packs a punch for readers looking for books about relationships, secrets and lies and the lengths people go to for wealth and fortune.
