About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Crazy Dangerous Blog Tour and Giveaway!

Whispers came at her out of the dark.  From the first sentence in Crazy Dangerous, I knew I was in for a wild ride.  I had to skim the first chapter because my heart was racing and I was having a hard time catching my breath!  Andrew Klavan is a master at building suspense and at the same time he also has a clever sense of humor.  This delightful combination made Crazy Dangerous really hard to put down.   

Sam Hopkins is a wonderful main character.  Quick wit, a big heart and courage are all part of who he is, though he loses his focus in life (through a series of "unfortunate" wrong turns) and longs to find his way back to what is right.  Jennifer Sales wanders into Sam's neck of the woods (literally) and things get complicated very quickly.  What are her bad dreams all about?  Is she insane or is there something much more sinister going on?  

Crazy Dangerous is Juvenile Fiction.  I would recommend it for ages 16 and up due to certain topics covered (demons, bombs, juvenile delinquents, mental illness, murder) in the story.  I really enjoyed it and am way past 16, lol!  I have a 14 year old, though, and I think it would be a bit too much for her to handle.  

I really appreciated that Andrew Klavan credited God with being in control throughout Crazy Dangerous.  He shows that Christian fiction never has to be boring!  This is a deliciously suspenseful story with wonderful characters.  A wild ride with crazy twists and turns and a good dose of humor to ease the bumps!  Can't wait to read his next book!

Crazy Dangerous
| Andrew Klavan

"You probably want to hear about Jennifer and the demons and how I played chicken with a freight train and-oh yeah-the weird murder . . . you're definitely going to want to hear about that."

Sam Hopkins is a good kid who has fallen in with a bad crowd. Hanging around with car thieves and thugs, Sam knows it's only a matter of time before he makes one bad decision too many and gets into real trouble.

But one day, Sam sees them harassing an eccentric schoolmate of his named Jennifer. When Sam finds the courage to face the bullies down, he loses a bad set of friends and acquires a very strange new one.

Because Jennifer is not just eccentric. To Sam, she seems downright crazy. She has terrifying hallucinations involving demons and the devil and death. And here's the really crazy part: Sam is beginning to suspect that these visions may actually be prophecies--prophecies of something terrible that's going to happen very soon. Unless he can stop it.

With no one to believe him, with no one to help him, Sam is now all alone in a race against time. Finding the truth before disaster strikes is going to be both crazy and very, very dangerous.
