Crazy for You by Juliet Rosetti is a December 2013 LoveSwept publication. I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

It is with a heavy heart that must inform you that Ben and Mazie have not survived as a couple. After Ben is offered a job which would require moving, he and Mazie argue. Ben wants her to allow him to support her and Mazie needs to feel independent after being in prison. But, Maize's days as a school teacher are over and she is so desperate for a job she hires on as "secret shopper". Her boss, Rhonda is a real piece of work.

"Rhonda Cromwell was the kind of woman that gives cougars a bad name. She broke up marriages, seduced door to door missionaries, and sunbathed nude in her front yard, causing neighborhood guys to run their lawn mowers up trees , mothers to lock their teenage sons in their rooms, and the camping goods store to stock more binoculars."

When Rhonda is murdered, the suspects start stacking up, including Mazie and Ben. Maize had just been fired by Rhonda and Ben had been the last to see her before she was found dead.
Even though Ben and Mazie are broken up, Mazie does her best to keep Ben hidden from the police while they try to find the real killer.

Mazie finds a job in a coffee shop where the female servers are scantily clad, she investigated Rhonda's neighbors, spies on people, get involved in one of the most hilarious paint ball games, all while keeping Ben and herself out of jail without breaking any laws.

Each chapter begins with "Maguire's Maxims", laugh out loud funny quotes from Mazie..
One of my favorites was: "Never tell a man more than he needs to know. The male brain was not designed for details and can easily overload it's circuits."

I didn't think it was possible for this book to be as funny as "The Escape Diaries". It was actually funnier. Juliet Rosetti is a fresh voice in contemporary romance and I am quickly becoming one her biggest fans.
This one gets an A+
