Crazy Little Thing (A Bell Harbor Novel)

Wall Street Journal Bestseller
2013 RITA® Finalist for Best First Book
2013 ©Desert Rose RWA® Golden Quill Award Winner – Single Title Romance

If Sadie Turner is good at anything, it’s putting stuff in order. So when she finds her “perfect” life in disarray, she hopes a summer vacation at her aunt’s lake house will help her piece it back together. She wants to relax, reboot, and heal the wounds left by her cheating ex-husband. And that requires time away from men. All men.

Or so she thinks.

With two slobbering dogs and two cousins living there—one a flamboyant decorator intent on making over Sadie—it’s hard to get a moment’s peace at eccentric Aunt Dody’s house, especially with everyone so determined to set her up with Desmond, the sexy new neighbor.

Desmond is Sadie’s worst nightmare. Tall, tanned, muscular…and to top it off, he’s great with her kids. But he must have a flaw—he’s a man—so Sadie vows to keep her distance.

As summer blazes on, the life Sadie is trying so hard to simplify only becomes more complicated—a new career presents itself, her evil ex haunts her, and Aunt Dody reveals a tragic secret—but maybe a little chaos is just what Sadie needs to get her life back in order.

  1. A fun, laugh out loud romance! When I’m looking for a quick, light-hearted, funny read, I’ll often grab a well-loved Jennifer Crusie or Kristan Higgins. New author Tracy Brogan is definitely getting added to the list. I thought “Crazy Little Thing” was a hoot! I laughed out loud so many times that my husband started giving me the stink eye. The dialogue between characters may have been a little over the top sometimes, but other times was so real that I felt like the author had listened in conversations I’ve had with my own…

  2. Fun, fast read Crazy Little Thing — When her divorce is final, Sadie Turner packs her kids up and heads to the beach town of Bell Harbor, Michigan to try and regroup while visiting her eccentric Aunt Dody. Enter the handsome single neighbor, her two adult cousins who are also living at home, and her scheming ex and you have the recipe for an at times laugh-out-loud romance. I’ll admit that the beginning dragged. Sadie is not immediately likable – she’s grumpy and so locked in a pity party about her divorce…

  3. Fun, funny and a great read! I loved this contemporary romance! With a sympathetic heroine, a super-hot hero, and a cast of secondary characters that makes you want to read the whole book in one sitting, Crazy Little Thing has it all. Engaging, quick read that had me laughing out loud in places. The author’s voice is witty and engaging– not to be missed!
