About the Book
Title: Crazy for You
Series: Deep Haven Collection #3
Author: Michelle Sass Aleckson presented by Susan May Warren
Publisher: Sunrise Publishing
Genre: Christian Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 25, 2021
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?

Book 3 in the Deep Haven Collection
Michelle Sass Aleckson has written Peter’s story and it’s about time! I have been loving these stories from Deep Haven and I especially enjoyed all the small town pros and cons that come up in this particular story.
Moving to Deep Haven was supposed to solve all of their problems. Veronica “Ronnie” Morales and her younger brother, Tiago, need a fresh start after all the bad influences in Minneapolis. Ronnie is sure that the small town of Deep Haven will be everything her former superior in the army, Cole, said it would be. Hired on a probationary basic, Ronnie must prove that her army medic background more than enough proves she deserves the paramedic position for the new Crisis Response Team. Her brother is her first priority but she quickly discovers she’s not very good at first impressions when it comes to working with the people of Deep Haven.
Fire Chief Peter Dahlquist is the peacemaker between the Zimmerman and Dahlquist families, which also makes him related to everyone in town. His indecision regarding a town project is making it more difficult to keep the peace. When Ronnie shows up as the new paramedic, she ruffles a lot of feathers and even gets a rise out of Peter. Can Ronnie’s straightforwardness help Peter make the right decision? When suspicious activities come up, will Peter believe what Ronnie and Tiago have to say?
I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know these characters from Deep Haven more. It was fun recognizing some of the new characters from the first two books in this series and seeing some of the older characters from Susan May Warren’s original books. I really sympathized with Peter and his family situation. I thought Ronnie was a little harder to relate to and she could be a bit annoying at times but then because of her background, you could understand why she was the way she was. The faith aspect of this book was sweet and rang true but it didn’t hit you in the feels the way Susan May Warren always does. However, the fact that this book is lighter on the faith aspects might be something you enjoy more depending on what you like to read. I really enjoyed seeing the family feud parts and also the parts with the teenagers. I’d love to focus some more on the youth in Deep Haven but that’s a whole other series.
Highly recommend if you enjoy Christian romantic comedies with small town antics and a hint of mystery.
My thanks to the publisher for providing me with an ARC of the book. All opinions expressed here are entirely my own. No positive review was expected and no compensation received.
Five Facts About Michelle Sass Aleckson You May Not Know
- Although I can be bossy, I’m an atypical oldest child in that I’m NOT very organized or on top of things. I can’t even see my “writing desk” because I never write at it. It’s a great surface for my piles though!
- I’m an omnivert. I love connecting with people but I need my alone time too. My favorite people are my husband and four kiddos. We like to connect by going on road trips and playing games
- I’m horribly indecisive. I like a sampler platter so I don’t have to choose one thing.
- My hubby and I secretly plan on running away someday… preferably to the ocean. We love our small town but there’s just something about being on the sand and watching the waves.
- I am a big-picture person. Give me the main idea first, please. Details are not my thing. Thank goodness for editors!
