Crazy For You is a delicious story of romantic obsession . . . Intrigues collide and unravel as [it] builds suspense and takes readers on a roller coaster. A great cast of supporting characters adds to the complexity of the plot. A quick read, but one that delves into themes of loyalty, betrayal, and the true meaning of marriage."  —Shirley Kennett, author, Time of Death

“Don’t even think about putting author Claire Applewhite’s writing style into any known category; she simply won’t fit. Her writing dazzles and sizzles, but even those words don’t nail it . . . The characters are so real you find yourself wondering how Applewhite got inside your head, the situations so absurd that only the naked truth of our own lives come close to a parallel. This is a writer bound to make a name for herself, one who can’t help but attract a huge, fanatic Applewhite-loving audience.”  —Esther Luttrell, author, Murder in the Movies
