4 stars: Renovating? Don’t miss this!
“The first thing a woman needs to know about renovating a house or apartment is simpe: do not, under any circumstance, sleep with your contractor, no tmatter what your husband or boyfriend is doing to you, or not doing to you.”
(“Confessions of a Contractor” pg1*)
And before we get started, I have to say I would never sleep with my contractor…….. unless he looked like Richard Murphy. I mean, oh my God, how did that slip out?
I wasn’t sure I was going to like “Confessions of a Contractor“. From the cover art, to the first line- I was sure that it was going to be a book that had sex all over the place. Lol, and in a way there was sex all over the place- in the ‘steam shower in the master bath’, on the ‘sandstone floor in the kitchen’, etc… but it was mentioned quickly and didn’t bog down the rest of the story.
It’s told all in first person, so the audience knows only what the main character, Henry the contractor, knows. This offers us a unique look at what your contractor is really thinking about you. And despite the fact that, yes, he slept with some of his clients- I still liked the guy! Besides liking the main character, I also enjoyed the others. Perhaps my favorites were Hector and Miguel, because if they didn’t like you- they pretended to only speak Spanish.
I would very much recommend “Confessions of a Contractor” to anyone looking for a fun read. And I’ll definitely be interested in reading anything else Richard Murphy puts out- right after I find out if there really are blind caterers…. well if you’ve read it- you know what I’m talking about!! If not, pick you copy up today. You can buy it here. And don’t forget to drop by the book’s website.
