Review: In Need of Therapy by Tracie Banister




This book made me laugh and appreciate the nutty family we all have.  Pilar is a psychologist who is trying to build her own practice, play mother hen to her younger sister, and handle passes made from patients.  This was a very well written book; you could relate to Pilar's life and the roller coaster ride that ensues.  Really, what's a girl to do when you have three men chasing after you, hopefully pick the right one.  The witty humor kept me with a smile on my face all the while I was reading the book.  In the end Pilar gets her man.  I would recommend this book, it is very entertaining.  I would give 4 stars.  

Book Description

 July 19, 2012
Lending a sympathetic ear and dispensing sage words of advice is all part of the job for psychologist Pilar Alvarez, and she’s everything a good therapist should be: warm, compassionate, supportive. She listens, she cares, and she has all the answers, but how’s the woman everyone turns to in their hour of need supposed to cope when her own life starts to fall apart?

While working hard to make a success of her recently-opened practice in trendy South Beach, Pilar must also find time to cater to the demands of her boisterous Cuban family, which includes younger sister Izzy, an unemployed, navel-pierced wild child who can't stay out of trouble, and their mother, a beauty queen turned drama queen who’s equally obsessed with her fading looks and getting Pilar married before it’s “too late.” Although she’d like to oblige her mother and make a permanent love connection, Pilar’s romantic prospects look grim. Her cheating ex, who swears that he’s reformed, is stalking her. A hunky, but strictly off-limits, patient with bad-boy appeal and intimacy issues is making passes. And the sexy shrink in the suite across the hall has a gold band on his left ring finger.

When a series of personal and professional disasters lead Pilar into the arms of one of her unsuitable suitors, she's left shaken, confused, and full of self-doubt. With time running out, she must make sense of her feelings and learn to trust herself again so that she can save her business, her family, and most importantly, her heart.
