Crazy Little Thing,
This review is from: Crazy Little Thing (A Bell Harbor Novel) (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Sadie Turner has recently divorced her husband Richard aka "Dick" after he cheated on her. Sadie is 30 years old, with two beautiful children and absolutely no self-confidence. When her eccentric aunt Dody asks Sadie to spend the summer with her at her house on the beach in Bell Harbor, Sadie and the children join Dody and her cousins Jasper and Fontaine for a "man free" holiday.
Sadie and Fontaine start a habit of watching "The Running Man", a hunk of a man who runs along the beach shirtless every morning. The Running Man turns out to be Desmond, a locum doctor with a Scottish accent, who is living temporarily in the previous doctors house down the beach. Surreptitiously aided by her aunt Dody, and relentlessly prompted by Fontaine, Sadie and Des start a romance but, as you'd expect given the personalities of all those involved, life is never simple and there are many ups and downs.
Well written, interesting characters, laugh out loud funny on many occasions, moving on others, totally predictable yet always entertaining "Crazy Little Thing" by Tracy Brogan is a thoroughly enjoyable story which was perfect for holiday escapism and one of the most satisfying light reading books I've read this year.
