A Crazy Homecoming

Links: Goodreads Amazon Amazon UK 
A Crazy Homecoming (Crazy Texas, #1)
 4 of 5 stars false1/2
Getting fired over a workplace meltdown was bad enough, but getting dumped at the exact same time by her boyfriend-slash-boss was the ultimate humiliation. With no real friends in L.A. and perennially absent parents, Daphne Simms has no one to turn to. To heal her heart, she runs to the only true home she’s ever known—her grandmother’s rural Texas ranch, called Crazy. She knows ranch folks will be a far cry from those she's known in L.A., but she certainly doesn’t expect to be greeted by a cranky cowboy shoving a shotgun in her face.
Mick Williams has lived and worked on Crazy for twenty years. Though he’s utterly devoted to Daphne’s grandmother, he’ll be damned if he’s gonna let a city slicker like Daphne sashay in and disrupt his nice, quiet life. When the future of Crazy is threatened, Mick and Daphne must join forces to keep the ranch afloat, but the heat of their attraction makes working together more complicated than either of them imagines.
When their physical and emotional connection deepens, Mick tries to turn away from the woman he’s convinced he doesn’t deserve, so Daphne has to pull out all the stops to convince him that the heart of Crazy is big enough for the both of them.


****The author provided me with a copy of this book for my honest review****
Daphne's life has crumbled; she had a meltdown at work and was fired by her boyfriend/boss so she runs to the only place she has ever called home, Crazy Ranch. She arrives in the middle of the night only to have some cowboy point a shotgun at her. Mick is like family to Daphne's grandmother, her Nana saved him twenty years ago and he has been at Crazy ever since. The two of them have undeniable physical chemistry, but when emotions get involved Mick starts to pull back. Can Mick get past his insecurities; will Daphne be able to convince him that he is worth her love and Crazy Ranch? The first pages of this book had me giggling; it was a cute funny book from the beginning. It kind of reminded me of an eighties romance novel, not cliché or anything it just had that sort of wholesome but with a hint of naughty feel to it. Daphne was a strong heroine her life may have fallen apart, but she doesn't wallow in this she adapts and tries her hardest to help out at the ranch. I have conflicting feelings about Mick I liked him, but at the same time I wanted to smack him for not seeing what was in front of his face. My favorite character had to be Nana; she was hilarious and had so much spunk. The storyline itself wasn't very complex there wasn't a lot of drama, it's a light read. This was my first Cate Baylor book and I am hooked, if the rest of her books are half as good as this one she is sure to become one of my go to authors.
