Apples Should Be Red by Penny Watson
Recipe for Thanksgiving Dinner:
Start with a 62 year old politically incorrect, chain-smoking, hard-cussing curmudgeon.
Add 59 sexually repressed know-it-all in pearls.
Throw in a beer can-turkey, a battle for horticultural supremacy, and a nudist next-door neighbor.
Serve on paper plates, garnished with garden gnome.
Tastes like happily ever after.
This is an over-fifty romantic comedy novella that is wholesome in an unwholesome way. I adored this book. It's like Clint Eastwood's character, from the movie Grand Torino, got his own love story. I love rude old men. They cut through the bullshit and say what they mean, but don't always mean what they say. Apples Should Be Red was delightfully entertaining, and deep in unexpected ways. This story was funny, touching, and a little hot. I'm always impressed and appreciate when an over-fifty book can turn me on. It makes me feel better about aging.
Thank You Penny Watson
