Crazy for You / Tell Me Lies by Jennifer Crusie
Well written, but I just couldn’t get into this book. View all 6 comments. I sort of knew I wasn’t going to love this book because it’s one of her earlier ones. Her legion of fans who have helped make her a household name are a testament to her success. I just adored that. Active characters, confusing neighbors,bad guys and gals using each other to gain money or fame or some sort of satisfaction. I hated that part. The prominent citizen happened to be former ‘big man on campus’ who married ‘most popular good girl’ who actually was attracted to ‘bad boy’ who it turned out wasn’t really ‘bad boy’ just ‘honorable boy who defended others with his fists’.
I cannot say it enough, I love Jennifer Crusie.
Full of way too much stuff and random details and just too much filler. CL was barely a character, he was nothing. A great, fun read. And will Maddie ever learn to let go and just be happy?
I don’t know, ok to read but wasn’t amazing in my opinion. Someone planted the murder weapon gun in her car. I was pulled into this book with the first sentence when Maddie finds a pair of black lace panties in the front seat of her husband’s car. L This was my first Jennifer Crusie read, and I was pleased with it for the most part.
I did find her a bit stupid at the start, she was so obsessed about the town, about what other people thought about her, and she was so heavily influenced by her mother. CL, the hero is too good. So the copyright date made me think I wasn’t going to love it, but the beginning of the book is pretty darn good! You get a Jennifer Crusie romance! And in the meantime, there was chocolate. You get two fantastic novels in one volume!

An enraged and reckless Maddie decides to turn the clock ttell and recreate those passionate moments she once shared with C. I’ve never lived in a small town, I’ve always moved not only city, but country, so don’t have that kind of bond to a place and people.

Jenny lives on the Ohio River where she often stares at the ceiling and counts her blessings. I liked Maddie and C. Having lived in Frog Point, Ohio her entire life, Maddie figured there was hardly a secret in town that she didn’t know. Bu I love a lot of what Jennifer Crusie has written for funny, light reads — my favorites are probably Bet Me and Welcome to Temptation, but a lot of the others are also very entertaining.
I’d say this book belongs in a special subset of chick-lit that I like to call “adultery-lit. A fun read, I’d recommend to anyone who wants a bit of light-humor with a twist of sass. Tori rated it it was ok Jul 24, Who’s doing the cheating?
