CRAZY FOR YOU
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author GINNY BAIRD delivers a wholesome and heartwarming story about learning to love again.
Mary Ellen Meeks isn’t looking for love in Paradise, Virginia. She’s aiming to make a fresh start teaching kindergarten at Turtle Creek Elementary. When a wayward rooster arrives on her doorstep one rainy October morning, good-hearted Mary Ellen temporarily takes him in. Then the mischievous fellow she names “Crazy” makes himself at home, turning her whole world upside down. Soon she’s chasing her chicken across the street and running straight into her handsome principal: kindly single dad, Wes Johnson.
Widower Wes has never met anyone quite so unusual or intriguing as his pretty new neighbor in Sweetheart Valley Hills. Though he surely can’t become involved with the beautiful blonde with big blue eyes, particularly since he’s her boss—and she’s his daughter’s teacher! Yet the fates and a matchmaking rooster have other plans… As autumn leaves turn bright red and gold, there’s romance in the air in Paradise. And that gives Crazy something to crow about.

Crazy for You (Romantic Comedy) by Ginny Baird
This is Mary Ellen Meeks and Wes Johnson's story.
Crazy for You is an amazing sweet, fun, and heartwarming story. I loved how Wes and Mary Ellen met! You will have to read it to find out. Their encounters were so funny.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
There are times when you want a light, feel good, quirky romance. If that's your mood right now, then I encourage you to check out Crazy for You.
In this story, the reader is introduced to a young teacher, Mary Ellen Meeks, who's making a new start in a new town while moving on from heartbreak. Lonely in the new town, she welcomes a wayward rooster in her home and soon learns that she's gotten in a bit over her head when the "crazy" bird keeps trying to escape. However, he always escapes to the same place - directly in front of a particularly handsome neighbor, who turns out to be her boss!
Widower and single father, Wes Johnson, is surprised when he takes notice of his new neighbor. And, he's doubly concerned that she turns out to be his new teacher at the school.
What follows is all around cuteness. Don't try to think too hard about it, just enjoy the silliness and fun as two lonely people are drawn to each other over caring for a rooster.
The book is completely clean and suitable for all ages.
My rating - 5 stars
Zany Romantic Comedy
Right from the first paragraph, this fun and entertaining tale propels the reader to laughter as we meet the main characters. There is a spark right from the beginning between Mary Ellen and Wes. The author created a warm, friendly, and welcoming school as the workplace and the concept of a small town to give a sense of community. Using a rooster for a pet allowed the reader to see into the hearts of all the characters by the sheer zaniness of this pet choice. The adventures of Mary Ellen and the rooster will awaken childhood in each and every reader. This story was a stellar romantic read that emphasized family values and ways to date when you have children to consider. I would highly recommend it.
