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 caught my attention with the cool cover and the promising story line. A love dilemma, second chances, fast paced story? I wanted to like it, I really did. Regretfully, the book failed to deliver. I am not sure what turned me off the most - the stiff prose, the contrived dialogue, or the unconvincing characters. Perhaps my expectations were too high, I don't know. I do know that I could not finish it fast enough.
I saw some positive reviews of Perfectly Crazy on Amazon. For a more balanced perspective, I suggest you check them out. While Ms. Penzes' book was not for me, it might be for you.
