I have read every Rachel Gibson book so far and looked forward to reading Crazy on You.

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 =)

I like RG's books and was happy to pay for a shorter story but really, only 80% of the purchase was the book I'd paid for the rest being extracts to entice me to buy others. I feel cheated to be honest. This keeps happening with ebooks and is beginning to put me off buying them and sticking to paper based ones; authors may make money this way but surely they know it will eventually lose them fans?

I've been a fan of Rachel Gibson since 'See Jane Score'. However, I haven't been as keen on her last few books.
'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.

This is just the kindle book you need for a nice light read, either after a hard day at work or sitting out in the sunshine trying to relax.

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!!!

I'm not sure if Ms Gibson is cut out for novella's - they are difficult to write because in a short few pages you need to create an atmosphere, depth of character and situation. This book was just a bit too unrealistic. I mean the characters fall in love over a short space of nothing... no great conversation or situation (which are characteristic of RG books) so I couldn't really get into it. Then again it was cheap, quick ready on a Sunday afternoon and gives you a preview for the upcoming release, I have a weakness for these sorts of "tasters". I'm glad to see some of RG books are avaialble on the Kindle and would love it even more if you could get an omnibus of the first books from the Chinook's series for example. I'd rather spend my money on that quite honestly.

Let me start by clarifying that I am a long time Rachel Gibson fan, which is why I bought this to begin with.

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 :)
