{Review} In Need of Therapy by Tracie Banister

Miami vacations from Trip Advisor

“In Need of Therapy” belongs with you the next time you go to the beach. And you’ll want to book a trip to Miami after the first few pages of reading this book.

Author Tracie Banister does a great job of describing the Miami scenery. You will want to put on your flip flops and pop open a Dos Equis while reading. The characters are well-developed and flavorful. And, since the book centers around a therapist, there’s lots of great advice (for only $1.99 on Amazon!)

In Need of Therapy on Goodread

A quick gist of it: main character Pilar Alvarez is just shy of 30, a therapist with her own start-up business and trying to balance everything in her life. Her family is vivacious. Her client list is very diverse (and entertaining. Is that wrong to say!?) And there’s a few men in her life who are vying for her love. This story is about how she finds a balance of it all, without going crazy herself.

Here’s a quick look at my favorite characters, advice and recipes from “In Need of Therapy.”

{Characters}
Pilar’s crazy younger sister, Izzy. As Banister writes, “She’d come into the world with a, ‘Here I am, deal with it!’ attitude.” Izzy likes to ruffle her family’s feathers (and they tend to be more traditional) by getting a tattoo, getting a piercing, getting arrested (but wrongfully!) and just being overall spicy. I loved her.

{“If you want to find a woman of quality, then you’re going to have to put some effort into it.”}

{Advice}
There’s so many great lines, here at just my top five. “Seeing a man’s love for his child was a beautiful thing.” | “Our parents and their relationships with both us and themselves are the cause of so many of our adult problems.” | “Men who bragged about the size of their bank accounts were usually overcompensating for a lack of size elsewhere.” | “If you want to find a woman of quality, then you’re going to have to put some effort into it.” | “Men who abused wait staff were petty and tyrannical in nature.”
