Book Review ~ They Call me Crazy by Kelly Stone Gamble

This is a USA Today Bestselling book.

Cassie is crazy, isn’t she?  She’s also killed her philandering husband, hasn’t she?

Hot diggity but I loved this book! From page 1 to the end I simply couldn’t put it down.  It is by far the best book I’ve read in 2020!

Set in Kansas there is a husky, drawl to the language, things are said that just kept me smiling, such as: “They say the last straw isn’t always the heaviest, just the one that can’t be endured.  Whoever they are, I think they may be right.”  And another line I particularly made me chuckle is: “Grams always said I’d be happier if I took up gardening, but I’m not sure she meant to start by planting bodies.”  Just fabulous!

I devoured this book in one sitting.  The characters are rich and fascinating, the setting sleepy and perfect.  What I really also appreciated is the way the story unfolds through multiple point of views.  Each time a new character is holding down the fort and telling their story we learn a little more about the main characters and watch as the story magically unfolds.  Honestly, a real belter, I loved this book!

$5.99 or £4.67 or free to read with Kindle Unlimited.

Review warning: Before you rush off and buy any book that someone reviews you should read the free sample chapters provided on Amazon, this way you can decide for yourself if this book is your cup of tea or not.  Happy reading everyone!

    1. I hope you enjoy it as much as me! I noticed a few 1* reviews on Bookbub which really shocked me, I’ve no idea why they would give such a good book only 1*. The writing is lovely, very artistic, I loved it. 🙂

      1. I’ve seen people do that when the subject matter just doesn’t appeal to them. The quality of writing and structure of the story has no impact in their thinking. Go figure.

  1. Hi Reyna, yes I know. Terrribly sad that they don’t recognize all the hard work and effort that goes into producing a story, just because it might not be their cup of tea, doesn’t mean the book warrents 1 star, very poor of some reviewers.
