Return to Lovett, Texas, the setting of Daisy’s Back in Town, in this smart and sexy new story from Rachel Gibson, the New York Times bestselling author of Rescue Me and the Seattle Chinooks books.
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.

First thought when finished: I think I would have liked it better had I read the whole series instead of just the novella.
Short Review for a short book: I am going to be honest and say that this novella just didn’t work for me. I didn’t realize it was part of a series (which I actually think I would love) so I missed the character development of Lily. I think if I had that I would have liked the novella more but there just wasn’t enough in there for me to make a character connection to her or Tucker.
I think if you are a fan of the series this novella will work for you. I was reading other people’s reviews that knew Lily from before and they loved it. Please take that into consideration. Now I am off to get more of these books because I really did like Rachel Gibson’s writing!
Final Thought: Don’t read Crazy on You as a stand alone but don’t skip it if you read the series!
During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup) and Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
