I am lucky to be able to spotlight today, My Kind of Crazy by Katie O’Sullivan. This is a great beach read that you won’t want to put down when the sun goes down. Its got very memorable characters and a puppy that just hasn’t grown into his body yet. For my full review keep reading after the book blurb. Be sure to pop back tomorrow for a new Fresh Face Friday.
Kendall Roarke is betting everything on making her Harwichport Bed & Breakfast into the premier wedding destination on Cape Cod, despite her recent messy divorce.
Jonathan Reynolds moved back to the Cape to take over his uncle’s business and start fresh after his own marriage ended. He’s not looking for anything complicated – until he meets Kendall, with her big plans and wild mop of curls.
Throw an unruly foster puppy and an uptight new neighbor into the mix and things get a little crazy. Now Kendall has to decide if it’s the kind of crazy that she can live with… for the rest of her life
Kendall is busy restoring the Bed and Breakfast she bought with her now ex-husband. She doesn’t have time to fall in love or even look at another human being. That is until she runs into Jon at the local coffee shop. Once Jon meets Kendall he can’t get her out of his mind. He seems to be running into her with her new Saint Bernard puppy, Midget. Though Jon can’t get Kendall out of his head he isn’t even sure if he’s ready for a new relationship after his marriage. Even though they fight their attraction they are drawn together. But, as their fledgling relationship starts to take off so do Kendall’s woes with her Bed and Breakfast and a contentious neighbor threaten to tear apart both Kendall’s fragile business and her new romance. Can Kendall learn to trust again and with that will she find the independence and perseverance that she lost?
I loved this book. It was a fun story with characters that you grew to love. Kendall and Jon are definitely a perfect match. When you throw in the shenanigans of Midget and the trials and tribulations with Kendall’s Bed and Breakfast it makes for a fantastic story. This is the first book of the Adult contemporary that I have read by Katie O’Sullivan and I was not let down. I loved her young adult book, Son of a Mermaid and I knew I had to read this one. With this book it really shows the diversity and development that she has grown as a writer. Her characters are strong with witty dialogue and a fantastic setting and story that takes the reader into the story. Overall, this is a fantastic book that is definitely beach reading material.
