Before I review the book I firstly just want to put that two of the things I especially like about Rachel Gibson is that her books interlock. I enjoy seeing previous book characters make an appearance in other books and finding out how they are getting on, secondly I like the two PoV. It is never one sided and we get to read about how both of the characters are feeling.
Now, back to Crazy On You.
I wasn't going to bother with buying this novella at first as I normally find novellas are rushed and too much is crammed in at one time, however since this novella was based on Lily Darlington from Daisy's back in town, I decided to give it a try.
Over all I did enjoy the novella, It's been 8 years since DBIT and Lily has certainly grown and changed for the better. Now enter Tucker Matthews and things get hot and steamy ..
The reason I dropped a star from the rating is because, as expected, the story was rushed. There was so much more that could have been done to make this into a longer book but as a novella I did enjoy it and look forward to reading Rachel Gibson's next book =)
'Daisy's Back in Town' is one of my favourite RG books, so I was glad to read this Novella was about her sister Lily Darlington. Lily did feature in daisy's back in town. She had just separated from her husband and went a little crazy. It's now 8 years later and Lily has made something of her life and owns her own business. Her Son Pippen is now 10. Lily is breaking the speed limit on her way home one night when she is pulled over by the new Deputy - Tucker Matthews. The next day she finds out that Tucker is her new neighbour. They are instantly attracted to each other although Lily is a little concerned that Tucker is 30 to her 38 and the townfolk will call her a cougar!! Lily had a reputation for being Crazy Lily when she was younger and she has worked hard to change their perception and be a good mother and businesswoman. She gives in to her attraction to Tucker but tries to hide their relationship. Tucker wants more.
It's such a shame this is a short story as I would have loved to have read it as a whole novel. I feel it was Rachel back at her best, so am disappointed we didn't get a whole book out of this story.
I had hoped to read more about Jack and Daisy but there isn't much although Daisy appears in one scene.
The next book 'Rescue Me' is set in Lovett again and features Sadie and Vince. I'm hoping it is as good as this Novella.
Lily Darlington is someone who has had a wild and crazy past. However, after her son was born, she settled down. The problem is, when living in such a small town like Lovett where everyone knows everyone's business, they never allow you to forget the past. So when police officer Tucker Matthews moves in next door, and an attraction between the two becomes apparent instantly, Lily knows it won't be long until Tucker hears about her sordid past. Will he stick around ?
This book is definately one for Rachel Gibson fan's to read and if you haven't started reading her books then the start with this :). I would highly recommmend this book to a friend!!!
This book however did not give me that same feel-good-vibe I've gotten from her other books. Sometimes I even wondered if it actually was written by Rachel Gibson, and not just someone using her name. It does have that cute way of mentioning characters from past books, so I turned away from the ghost-writer theory, but it still left me wanting. The entire book felt very rushed; the story line, the characters' development, their feelings towards each other and their relationship. In addition (and i don't know if this is just for the kindle version), the amount of typos was enough to make even a non-native English reader very annoyed!
If you are looking for a feel-good, funny book, by all means pick up a Rachel Gibson book, just not this one. There are better ones, like all the ones set in Truly, or the Chinooks-series.
Hope this was helpful :)
