The book we've chosen is Crazy Little Thing by Tracy Brogan.
Sadie and her two children vacation at her eccentric Aunt Dody's beach house. It was to be a time of healing and getting her head together. (I immediately started getting involved, and was enjoying the characters)

Crazy Little Thing by author Tracy Brogan:
After reading the first sentence I was not impressed. I'd then wished Nana and I had agreed on a different read. (However I persisted, and was glad I did!) Discovering her attractive, yet philandering husband was having illicit affairs, Sadie Turner was scarred with some mental repercussions. A year after her divorce, Sadie was having terrible trust issues with men. (Go Figure!)
At certain junctures in the book, poor Sadie tends to be her own worst enemy. (I laughed and cringed) As the reader, I flinched and had secondhand embarrassment at some of her misconceptions of a sexy, handsome doctor named Desmond, who came off as the dream of a lifetime for any woman.
I must admit, in the end, I really liked this book. Crazy Little Thing was entertaining and actually had me laughing out loud. Especially when searching for an appropriate pair of underwear or attempting not to think about the phallic implications while peeling a carrot and eavesdropping on the conversation between her aunt and the intriguing Desmond. (you'll know what I'm talking about when you read the book)
Tracy Brogan writes with quick humorous wit and I thoroughly expect everyone will be entertained and have a couple of hearty giggles with this read, I know I did!
