Review ~ Crazy Over You by Carol Thomas


A bit of blurb

Love can drive you crazy… in more ways than one!

When Abby met Simon, it was the start of something special, a love Abby believed would last a lifetime.

A wedding, two daughters and fifteen years later Abby’s world is falling apart. Having discovered Simon has had an affair her normally ordered mind is spiralling out of control. Crushed by the betrayal and shocked by her own reaction, she knows she needs to get herself together; she’s just not sure where to start.

With Simon on a mission to win her back and a close friend hiding a secret that could push her further over the edge, Abby finds strength and support where she least expects it. But as she attempts to gain control of her life and make decisions about her future, it may be more than the limits of Abby’s mind that are put to the test!

My Thoughts

Abby Turner is completely overwhelmed by her husband's infidelity, and often late at night, with only the internet for company, Abby becomes obsessed in trying to find out more about his affair. However, therein lies madness and Abby knows that before too long she really will need to get her life, and that of her daughters, back on track. But lurking in the wings is Simon, the estranged husband, who has his own problems to work through and who wants to win back Abby's love and trust.

What then follows is the story of how piece by jagged piece, Abby starts to rebuild her life and of how the pitfalls of relationships can very often overshadow what is valuable and important. I enjoyed getting to know the characters, the author writes with great insight and sympathy and manages to make what could have been a predictable story into something with slightly more of a realistic edge to it.

So, overall, Crazy Over You is a nice insightful look at the vagaries of modern life and shows that what's really important is being true to yourself and never compromising on the values that you hold dear.

Best Read with...a nice cup of tea and a caramel slice...
