"Crazy On You"
By: Rachel Gibson
Synopsis from Amazon:
Lily Darlington's been called crazy in her day-and, yeah, driving her car into her ex-husband's living room probably wasn't the smartest move ever made-but the louse deserved it. Now Lily is happily single, and she's turned it all around. She knows she's a good mom, a homeowner, and a businesswoman, all wrapped up in one good-looking package.A package that police officer Tucker Matthews is dying to unwrap. This ex-military man sure doesn't need another woman in his life. His last girlfriend left him with nothing but memories and a cat named Pinky! But living next door to Lily has been driving him nuts. He dreams about her long blonde hair and even longer legs. And maybe it's time to go a little crazy . . . and fall in love.
Rachel Gibson could write on the back of a cereal box and I would run to the store to read it. "Crazy On You" is a new short story that introduces her new series while finishing the story of characters we know and love. An amazing story about second chances and of course, falling for the boy next door.
We have met Lily Darlington before in "Daisy's Back in Town." Lily is the sister of Daisy and considered just a little different...well, maybe a little crazy. She's drove her car into her ex-husband's house, she's partied a little too hard, danced on some tables, but she considers all that behind her now. She's raising her son and trying to hide from her interfering mother who happens to live next door.
One evening she is pulled over by a Police Officer and it isn't until the next morning she realizes its her new neighbor! Tucker Matthews has just retired from his military career and is trying to find happiness in life by working for the police and living in strange little Lovett, Texas. Instantly the two have sparks, made more complicated by Lily's wild mother and son.
I loved this story. While it was a short novella and no where near as long as Gibson's other works, it definitely worked for me. The characters grew through the story and when I finished the story, I expected to see them shopping in my supermarket. I was pretty attached to them, I have to admit. There was romance, it was funny, there was a little heartbreak and a wonderfully happy ending. Run, don't walk, and grab this one up!
I received this book from Edelweiss in return for an honest review.
