In Morsi's latest bubbly romance (after Red's Hot Honky-Tonk Bar) a scandalous bikini car-wash business incites an uproar in buttoned-down Plainview, Tex. Andi Wolkowicz has moved back home from Chicago to help her dad, Walt, take care of her developmentally disabled twin, Jelly. Work is hard to come by, so Andi reopens Walt's antiquated car wash for the summer and updates it with a sexy twist. Not surprisingly, she finds opposition from some puritanical locals. Adding sparks is a romance with her old high school crush, Pete Guthrie, now the attractive owner of the struggling store next door. Morsi's engaging characters elevate this from the ho-hum pack of feel-good romances, while subplots involving other members of the Wolkowicz clan add some heft to a light, breezy, going-down-easy story.

When Andrea Wolkowicz must leave her life and return home to care for her ailing father, she quickly learns that her impressive résumé and equally impressive wardrobe will not help her land a job in her small home town. Luckily, her father's old car wash is still in working order, although far from profitable. To remedy this, Andrea comes up with a new way to bring in business: a staff of exclusively bikini-clad women. While her business ploy works, it also enrages local citizens and neighboring businesses. Morsi has fun improvising on the always amusing and provocative concept of a bikini car wash and creates a delightfully funny and borderline scandalous story of one woman's quest to utilize her brains as much as her beauty in order to survive. An effort that does not go unnoticed by grocer and former high-school adversary Pete Guthrie. Morsi tells an engaging story about using what you've got to start over, and maybe falling in love along the way. --Claire Orphan
