Title: Crazy for You Series: Deep Haven Collection #3 Author: Michelle Sass Aleckson presented by Susan May Warren Publisher: Sunrise Publishing Release Date: May 25, 2021 Genre: Christian Contemporary Romance
The problem with being related to everyone in town is that there is no one left to date…until now…but will this outsider survive his family?Former soldier Veronica “Ronnie” Morales isn’t going to let her kid brother, Tiago, get pulled into the gangs of Minneapolis, so, seeking safety and a fresh start, she heads to sleepy Deep Haven on the north shore of Minnesota. She’s hoping to put down roots as the paramedic for the new Crisis Response Team, but it’s not easy to be the town outsider. Fire Chief Peter Dahlquist is a peacemaker—he has to be. After he’s related to both of the Deep Haven dynasties – the Zimmermans and the Dahlquists, Deep Haven’s version of the Hatfields and the McCoys. Worse, Peter is the holdout vote for a landmark project, which also makes him the loneliest guy in town when both sides demand that he pick sides. The only one who seems to understand his plight is the newcomer in town…his pretty, street-tough paramedic. When Tiago finds himself caught up in small town shenanigans and the town blames Ronnie for tragedy, Peter is forced to pick sides. But will his choice cost him the home—and the woman—he loves?

Crazy for You by Michelle Sass Aleckson is the third book in the Deep Haven Collection, from the world created by Susan May Warren. Fire Chief Peter Dahlquist just wants to keep the peace, especially since he’s torn between two of the largest families in town. His life gets more volatile when he gets a new partner, paramedic Veronica “Ronnie” Morales, a retired army firecracker who’s goal is to give her brother a safe place to grow up.
This push-pull between one who wants peace and one who expects excellence has a natural tension that seems impossible to resolve. Yet, from the get-go, the author gives hints and sparks that show how these two could be good together, if they can get past themselves. Then again, if they do, the town my tear them apart.
It’s also a story of new-to-town and old-timer, and it’s so good! As someone who moved from a larger town to a smaller one, I could identify with Ronnie in so many ways. I’ll admit Peter’s large family makes it challenging to remember who is who and who he’s related to. Then again, I come from a large extended family, too, so I get it.
Without giving anything away, the climax won’t let you stop reading, either because of the danger or because of the relational dynamics. And the ending is so sweet! You’ll have to read it to see.
Here’s to hoping Chief Dahlquist finally gets his happily ever after.
