This is such a sweet and funny romance involving a man, woman, child and a rooster named Crazy! Wes Johnson had no idea what to expect when he saw his neighbor running across the street still in her pj's and slippers with curlers in her hair chasing after a rooster, but that was his first introduction to Mary Ellen Meeks. Their second introduction was in his office when she showed up to meet him before her job started as the new kindergarten teacher. He had the feeling that his life was going to get a little more exciting with Mary Ellen in it. I was given an ARC from the author/publisher. All conclusions are mine and mine alone.

Ginny Baird has delivered a sweet romance with Crazy for You. This is the story of Wes Johnson and Mary Ellen Meeks, as the two meet and fall in love. Wes is an elementary school principal who’s also a widower and single father. Mary Ellen is new to the area, a Kindergarten teacher, and Wes’ new neighbor. Crazy for You is one of those stories that I can’t give much detail about. For me, romance is all about the journey and little pleasant surprises along the way. Every single detail of this book contributes to that journey. All I can say is prepare yourself for laugh out loud moments, involving a crazy chicken appropriately named Crazy, and sweet, tender moments as a family comes together. **I received a copy of this book from the author and voluntarily reviewed.**

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

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.

Wes Johnson is a widower with a young daughter. He hasn't got over the death of his wife two and a half years ago, but that's about to change. His life will never be the same. When he meets his new neighbor, Mary Ellen Meeks, she makes a big impression. She's chasing her runaway rooster that she named Crazy. Imagining this scene made me laugh. Wes and Mary Ellen are such a great couple. I really cared for them. They are honorable and loving. However, the scene stealer is Wes's five year old daughter, Emma. She's such a sweet child. Sweetheart Valley is the perfect setting for this feel good romance. I love the small town vibe. Ginny Baird has written a novella that made me feel light of heart. I cared for the characters and wanted them to find a forever love and become a family. This story satisfied my craving for a HEA.

I have to say this is a somewhat peculiar book. It has a sweet storyline about a widowed dad, Wes, his adorable 5 year old daughter, Emma, and her new kindergarten teacher, Mary Ellen, who lives across the street in the same subdivision. Stop right there. First of all, this woman is a crackpot with a pet rooster named Crazy, who strays from her back yard which leaves Mary Ellen running around the neighborhood in her bathrobe trying to catch the wayward bird. I could have overlooked that insanity, but then Wes and Emma build a chicken coop in Mary Ellen's backyard which is grand fun, but why in the world would you encourage a woman to keepy a barnyard animal in the city when there are no hens to keep him company? No wonder he keeps running away! The straw that broke the camel's back for me was when Mary Ellen had to leave school early because she was so absolutely devastated by Crazy's disappearance that she sobbed herself to sleep. Seriously? I realize the growing relationship between these three characters is the focal point of the story but I was way too annoyed by the nonsense with Crazy to enjoy the lukewarm attraction between Wes and Mary Ellen which was wishy washy to begin with. This romance was so squeaky clean they never even kissed each other and I'm sorry, but that is a deal breaker for me. I read a complimentary copy of this book and all opinions expressed in my voluntary review are completely my own.

I loved this sweet romance. Mary Ellen is a character that quickly weaves her way into my heart. She has stepped out of her comfort zone and moved to a new area where she has no friends or family. I think that in itself shows her strength of character. Wes is a widowed father who has been dealing with the loss of his wife for two years. Their first encounter left a last impression on both plus a spark that both have a hard time ignoring. Of course their chance meeting can be blamed on Crazy, a rooster. Wes and Mary Ellen find they have more in common than just being neighbors. It turns out that Wes is actually her new boss with him being the principal at the new school where she has been hired to teach plus she's his daughter's kindergarten teacher. I loved these characters. This is a fun story that includes humor, romance, heartbreak and second chances. I was drawn in at page one and didn't put it down until I turned the last page. **I received this book from the author. I was not required to write a review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

This sweet romance is a very pleasant story about finding romance in Sweetheart Valley, located in Paradise Virginia. Mary Ellen is new to town as a Kindergarten teacher, a job she loved in her past. She had been on hiatus from teaching, and is back to doing what she wants. She meets Wes, her neighbor across the street, when he rescues her new pet, Crazy. Both are surprised when they next meet, as Wes is the principal where she will be teaching. And one of Mary Ellen's students is the daughter of Wes, Emma. Secrets and loss are prevalent in this light, fun, and lovely story. [I received an early copy of this book and I reviewed it voluntarily.]

A wonderful sweet read that was pure fun to read. Such great characters, especially Crazy!! Mary Ellen is sweet and kind as well as determined to get a fresh start in Paradise. Falling for her boss, single dad Wes Johnson was never part of the plan. Living right across the street might be a bit of a problem with that though. So will his adorable daughter Emma. Definitely a book I recommend to everyone.

Mary Ellen, Wes, and a rooster. She’s the new teacher. He’s the principal. Can a rooster be a matchmaker? Crazy for You is a great story. Wes gave up on love when his wife died. Mary Ellen isn’t looking for love, she even moved to get away. But when her pet rooster keeps getting out, and Wes decides to help her build a chicken coop, can they deny the attraction? Wes’ daughter Emma is so sweet and the shenanigans of the rooster were hilarious. I wanted to live next door to them. If you enjoy a sweet romance you will love this one! I received a free copy in the hope that I would mention/review it on my blog. I was not required to give a positive review, only my honest opinion - which I've done. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own and I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

This book had me laughing on page one! Who knew a rooster could be a matchmaker? But Crazy definitely plays the part in this sweet, heartwarming story. I loved the cast of characters! Mary Ellen is just adorable!! She is natural and real, and an incredible kindergarten teacher. Wes is generous and kind. He’s a great dad! His daughter, Emma, is a sweetheart. She is so cute, and plays her own role in bringing these two together. I loved the book! I enjoyed it from beginning to end! When the book is by Ginny Baird, that’s not a surprise at all. I received a free copy of the book, which I voluntarily reviewed. I have given my honest opinion.

I received a free book and voluntarily chose to review it. Wait until you find out about Crazy. A funny book, a good romance, and a child makes for good reading. Leaving her mother was the best thing for Mary Ellen so I can call her my strong woman. Loved the story.
