Overview

Small town country girl Elva Presley Hicks is about to attend her five-year class reunion with her best friends, Shay and Margarett.

The discovery of an old fanfic manuscript stirs up memories of her summer job as a plumber’s helper in Houston the summer before senior year. She earned a lot of money that year, but was lonely as heck.

It's not like there weren't any suitors back then. Elva could have chosen between Chase, the obese pig farmer, and Wyatt, the plumber with wandering hands. But Elva yearned for something more, and found it that fateful summer, with electrician, Mitch McCall.

It was magical. Mitch wasn't turned off by Elva's name or fan fiction writing, and Elva didn't lose interest in Mitch after he cut off his nose at work.

Trials and triumphs followed including a friendship implosion, world-wide fanfic humiliation, and goat salvation. It would go down as the most memorable summer of high school.

But as these things sometimes do, the summer romance fizzled and Elva moved on to life after high school. And while she's ready to reminisce, she is unnerved when she runs into Mitch at the reunion. Can they give it another go after so much time has passed, or are they too different now to even try?

    Plumb Crazy was just that ¿ crazy. It was quirky and awkward. Bu

    Plumb Crazy was just that – crazy. It was quirky and awkward. But, it was also heartwarming and full of feels. If I'm honest, it did take me a little bit of time to get into this book. The characters were odd and the setting was difficult for me to imagine at first, but after a few chapters, I was pulled in and couldn't stop reading. 

    It is, without a doubt, the characters that make this book. From Elva to Shay and Margarett to Chase and Mitch, each of the characters brought something truly special and unique to the table. Elva was an incredible character. She was awkward and geeky and she knew it. She never pretended to be something she wasn't. I loved watching her grow over the course of the summer working the very unglamorous job of a plumber's assistant. She was determined and real. And extremely lovable. Mitch was adorable. I was rooting for them from the start. I loved the banter between them. They had great chemistry. 

    There were loads of funny moments, but there were also a fair number of more serious issues addressed throughout the book. Not only did it have a cute romance, but I also enjoyed the focus on family and friendships. The characters were a bit over-the-top at times, but that was part of Plumb Crazy's charm. The Star Trek references, fanfic writing and goat-saving just added even more to it. 

    I do feel the blurb was a wee bit misleading for this book. The majority of it is set during the flashback, with very little time actually devoted to present-day Elva. But you know what? I wouldn't have had it any other way. (Ok, I would have LOVED a bit more time with the present day characters only because, you know, swoons. But, I'm greedy like that.) Other than that, I wouldn't have changed a single thing about this book. If you like your heroines quirky and awkward and your books with a whole lot of humor and heart, you should definitely check out Plumb Crazy. 

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
