About Perfectly Crazy
Sexy, stylish and successful, Nell always prided herself on her common sense. So why is she suddenly crazy for David, her married best friend of twenty years? With a single kiss, Nell s perfect Californian life turns upside down. All the safety of her well-adjusted marriage to a respected plastic surgeon and her growing fashion business pale in comparison to the passion experienced in that kiss. Can she go on as before, or will she make the biggest change of her life? Will she face disaster and tragedy, or perhaps adventure and a second chance? Or possibly both? Find out from this fast paced book where the sceneries are changing as fast as the movies. Life is full of surprises and challenges that anyone would call perfectly crazy yet they may become reality one day. Or will they?

Perfectly Crazy was a short yet fun read.  The writing style is different.  The narrator tells the story in a concise manner.  I felt it was very straight to the point, without much fluff.  This enabled me to read the story quickly and wonder what was going to happen, but I didn't ever feel connected to the story.  I wasn't lost in the book.  I never felt like I was there or forgot I was reading, even though I remained interested in the storyline.

The storyline itself was fun.  It seems not uncommon to have a best friend of the opposite sex that one might fall for.  I think this is why people say your spouse should be your best friend as well.  I guess it would have helped Nell if she had realized her feelings for David before they both married.  Regardless, this was a fun story to read, though it took me a little bit to get used to the writing style.  I like to have a good short read every once in awhile, especially if I have just finished a longer book.  This one did that for me. At 177 pages, the longest part of the process was obtaining Internet access to post this review! 

The characters are conflicted among other emotions and show the human side of internal conflict well. The book has a few twist that make it interesting and enables certain events to take place.  If the synopsis grabs your attention, give this one a try!  I enjoyed it.
