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?

Finding a book that’s hard to put down is one thing, but Crazy for You will also have you cheering for Veronica, Tiago, and Peter all the way! This is a wonderful book filled with drama, faith, and love.
Ronnie (Veronica) and her younger brother have moved to Deep Haven to escape the big city life. Ronnie has taken custody of Tiago in order to keep him out of foster care or worse. The city is filled with gangs and drugs, and Tiago is getting too old to be left hanging around those kids who will drag him down. So, Ronnie has taken a job with the Crisis Response Team in Deep Haven. Starting over is hard, but she is determined to help her little brother and put him first.
Her new colleague is Peter Dahlquist, who is a handsome and single guy who feels it’s his job to please everyone. Ronnie’s rough exterior takes time to break through, but she and Peter get to know each other and develop feelings. But, living in a small town has a way of causing them a lot of trouble. Peter is a Dahlquist and also related to the Zimmermans. These two families are always in competition and have many stubborn members.
In this book the two families are fighting over a specific property that they want control of so that they can have a business there. Unfortunately, Peter is on the council and will have to vote for one of the family’s proposals. He’s having a hard time, because both sides are determined to get their way. In comes a third cousin, Vivien, with a third option that will maybe give Peter an out. She has proposed that the property be used for a Youth Center. Peter and Ronnie know that this is the best plan, but how will the town be convinced.
Peter can’t convince his family or the town. The families are both angry with him. He even tries to meet with them in the church, but it doesn’t stop their anger or screams. The church’s pastor gives Peter some advice about what the Bible says in this situation. Peter wants to do what’s right. When the council meets again, he again tries to sway the crowd of angry townsfolk, but then something horrible happens. You’ll have to read the rest to find out what will happen next.
This book contains many believable Christian discussions. It’s not just a book with a few Bible verses scattered around. The characters have real experiences with God and the prayers and struggles are portrayed in a way that readers can understand. I highly recommend Crazy For You for it’s grace-filled message. It’s also a very entertaining and clean romance. I look forward to reading more in the Deep Haven series of books.
