ABOUT THE BOOK

Crazy for You

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

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? 

Excerpt:

Five hundred miles might not be far enough away, but Ronnie Morales had done  more with a lot less.  
Not that she had a choice. She’d learned early on that no one was going to hand  her anything on a silver platter. She rolled her shoulders back and took a deep breath,  wiggling her fingers on the steering wheel. She would make this work. She had to. For Tiago. 


The SUV headlights barely pierced the darkness in front of them. The scent of stale  french fries clashed with the floral air freshener attached to the vent. Muted rap music spilled  out of her little brother’s headphones. It grated on her ears. The vibrations of the road put her  backside to sleep.  
She should stop, find a bathroom and a decent meal, because those Cheetos she  ate hours ago were not cutting it. 


She checked her rearview mirror. Nah. Better to push through and get to Deep  Haven. Besides, where would she stop? 


Nothing but a hill covered with forest on one side of Highway 61 and Lake Superior on  the other, a black abyss with reflections of moonlight lurking on the water. No other vehicles on the road. No lights. 


She was heading to the backside of nowhere. 


Still, if she had to go to the end of the state map to find a safe place and keep Tiago  out of trouble, so be it. He was only ten. Probably didn’t realize how big a deal this was.  Uprooting from their North Minneapolis neighborhood, moving to the opposite end of the  state, and starting over…
Hopefully in a place where gangs weren’t recruiting at the local elementary school. Of course, if Mom had spent an ounce of attention on the poor kid instead of her  latest loser boyfriend, or better yet, if she had a smidge of backbone, maybe they wouldn’t  be in this mess. 


But coming home off her tour with the Army to find her mother in jail and her brother  in foster care facing arson charges meant something had to change. Ronnie would not sit by  and let Tiago throw his life away like Mom had. 


So goodbye, military career. Goodbye, Minneapolis. Hello, Deep Haven. If they ever found the place. 
Man, it was dark out here. 


But no turning back now. Like Papa always said, Press on and move forward,  Veronica. Find something good to focus on. 


The job Cole offered her was certainly a good fit. Paramedic for the small town. Using  her skills for this Crisis Response Team she could totally get behind. 


She just needed to help Tiago find some new friends, some good friends, and  something for him to do in his spare time besides setting fire to public property. And it  wouldn’t be so bad to find a cute little house to fix up and call their own eventually.  Something without bars on the windows would be nice. 
Ronnie glanced at the clock. It was already after eleven. They had to be getting  close. Maybe she should’ve called Cole. Hopefully, he wouldn’t mind her coming in a few  days early. Once she was done with her discharge paperwork, put in her notice at her temp  job, and packed, it didn’t pay to stick around the Twin Cities any longer. A faint glow in the sky ahead beckoned. 
Ronnie nudged Tiago in the passenger seat. “T, wake up. We’re here.” 


He mumbled and retreated further into his hoodie. His soft snores resumed. The light grew stronger as she crested the hill. A sign for a cabin resort on one side of  the road. A mini golf place and a Welcome to Deep Haven sign on the other. Yes. This was it.


From the top of the hill she spied the town below, one stoplight up ahead. The hill  above the harbor was dotted with porch lights, and a small cluster of businesses along the  lakeshore gleamed a rainbow of colors onto the surface of the lake. 


It looked so peaceful. So…small. 


Wow, it was small.
