Is there some unwritten rule than when romance novelists start getting hardback book contracts they must then include psycho stalking nutcase characters in those books? Nora Roberts makes the switch from romance to romantic suspense with ease, but in Jennifer Crusie's case the transition from her humor-filled romance novels would be better served without the psycho stalking nutcase type character. The story of Quinn and the domino effect her desire for change triggers would have worked fine without Bill, the dumped boyfriend who cannot take no for answer. Bill is not a funny character. The escalation of his stalking behavior is not funny. As a result, CRAZY FOR YOU is neither a completely funny romance nor does it qualify as romantic suspense since there are many humorous elements. CRAZY FOR YOU is entertaining, but suffers a bit of an identity crisis.

5.0 out of 5 stars A funny and delightful work 12 Feb 1999
By A Customer
Most townsfolk believe that Quinn is a fortunate individual since she is dating the local hero, gorgeous high school coach Bill Holland, who seemingly will do anything for his beloved. In spite of her relationship, Quinn feels bored and adopts a stray dog she found. However, to her shock, Bill commands her to give the fleabag to the pound.

Quinn rejects Bill's demands for her to give away Katie, so he intercedes by taking the canine to the pound without her permission. Quinn goes ballistic, feeling her boyfriend betrayed her. She dumps Bill and retrieves Katie. She also buys herself a house and begins to see Nick Zeigler. However, Bill obsessively wants her back even if he must employ violence to succeed in his quest.

Readers will be crazy for Jennifer Crusie's latest story CRAZY FOR YOU. The story line brilliantly blends wit with suspense, turning the novel into a winner. The audience will adore the intrepid Quinn even as they will despise and defile Bill. Even with a fatal attraction undertone, the ingenious Ms. Crusie leaves her fans feeling quite contented with life.

5.0 out of 5 stars CRAZY ABOUT CRUSIE!!! 5 April 1999
By A Customer
Jennifer Crusie hits a home run with this one! I lost an entire day's work because I couldn't put it down. It's funny,fresh, and completely satisfying! This is one book you won't feel as if you've read a hundred times before. I loved the characters, the humor, and the surprises. The best book I've read in months!

5.0 out of 5 stars Her Best Yet! 11 Jan 1999
By A Customer
I've read all of Jennifer Crusie's books, and this one is her best yet. Quinn McKenzie, bored with her safe, predictable life, decides to keep the stray dog she's rescued from the parking lot. From that one tiny decision, her life dominoes out of control in mostly hilarious ways only Crusie could dream up. Safety alert: set down your mug of hot chocolate before reading the scene out behind the dog pound. Once again the heroine's relationship with her best friend is central to the story -- every woman needs a best friend like the ones Crusie creates for her heroines. This book is all about getting what you need, and it works on every level.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun, fast, read... 25 July 1999
By A Customer
Just browsing I spotted the book and enjoyed it. Multiple developed characters, not just the main two. Everyone seemed real in this book; no bodies to die for, and Miss America looks. I'm checking other books by this author after I post this.

4.0 out of 5 stars shaky start but blossomed into something exciting 23 April 2008
bit slow to start and found it hard to keep all the secondary character straight. set in the usual small town america where everybody knows everybodies business and high school sports are the religion so when quinn leaves her boyf the high school coach things are shaken up. high school coach doesnt really accept she has left him which just bugged me the whole way through the book and i got tired of him as a character. great male interest in the form of nick (hot hot hot) and things get down and dirty.

great funny moments and some great character, slow start but in the end the passion is explosive

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightfully funny and touching tale! 23 Feb 1999
By A Customer
This is a great book! It is not only funny and engrossing, but touching. I especially enjoyed Ms. Crusie's touching upon the love lives of the heroine's parents, best friends, and students. She demonstrates a deft touch regardless of the age of the character. Worth the hardcover price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crusie is a treasure! 1 May 1999
By A Customer
So, there I was: sick of kids, sick of husband, sick of everything in my normal, ordinary life. Needed a treat in the worst way. Do I buy the hardcover or indulge myself with a bottle of Italian wine? One or the other--both are impossible. I bought the book. And, boy, was it ever worth it. We all know Cruise is funny--and she is. This is a very funny book. But there's also a rich, deeply satisfying kind of honor underlying her work, an exploration of our deepest relationships, our most treasured wishes and dreams, a recognition of how deep and terrible and wonderful our lives are if we take three seconds to appreciate them. Crusie is funny, but she's also wise, and the combination has never been better than in CRAZY FOR YOU.
