Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour for Crazy for You by Michelle Sass Aleckson presented by Susan May Warren, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!
ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: Crazy for You
Series: Deep Haven Collection #3
Author: Michelle Sass Aleckson presented by Susan May Warren
Publisher: Sunrise Publishing
Release Date: May 25, 2021
Genre: Christian Contemporary Romance
The problem with being related to everyone in town is that there is no one left to date…until now…but will this outsider survive his family?
Former soldier Veronica “Ronnie” Morales isn’t going to let her kid brother, Tiago, get pulled into the gangs of Minneapolis, so, seeking safety and a fresh start, she heads to sleepy Deep Haven on the north shore of Minnesota. She’s hoping to put down roots as the paramedic for the new Crisis Response Team, but it’s not easy to be the town outsider.
Fire Chief Peter Dahlquist is a peacemaker—he has to be. After he’s related to both of the Deep Haven dynasties – the Zimmermans and the Dahlquists, Deep Haven’s version of the Hatfields and the McCoys. Worse, Peter is the holdout vote for a landmark project, which also makes him the loneliest guy in town when both sides demand that he pick sides. The only one who seems to understand his plight is the newcomer in town…his pretty, street-tough paramedic.
When Tiago finds himself caught up in small town shenanigans and the town blames Ronnie for tragedy, Peter is forced to pick sides. But will his choice cost him the home—and the woman—he loves?
IN MY OPINION
The next book in The Deep Haven collection has arrived, and this opposites-attract romance is a fantastic addition to the series.
Susan May Warren returns and Michelle Sass Aleckson makes her author debut with roots sunk deep into the community of Deep Haven through Peter, who is distantly related to pretty much every person in town. Peter spends his life as the peacemaker, insistent on not ruffling any feathers. So, when Ronnie, a woman who is blunt and brusque, moves to town with his brother and their mutual friend asks Peter to smooth the waters, it’s a challenge Peter wonders if he’s up to.
I enjoyed how much Ronnie and Peter both challenged and complemented each other. Ronnie pushes Peter to stand up for himself and what he believes in while Peter tempers some of Ronnie’s forthrightness. And it was a great to see how the critical response team has come together since the first book as well as get a peek at the inner workings and division (in a few different areas) among the residents of Deep Haven.
While reading Crazy for You, I found some new favorite characters I hope will get the spotlight in the remaining books (and yes, I looked them up, and yes, they do!). This series has been a fun and refreshing way to return to a beloved setting (with some cameos by beloved characters) as well as get to know some brand new authors.
