Review – Crazy About Maisie

Dick, Janice L. Crazy About Maisie. Guernsey, Saskatchewan, Canada: Tansy & Thistle Press, 2021.

About the Book

Hairdresser Maisie McDonald loves her life in Happenstance, but when private investigator Sam Kowalczyk comes to town, Maisie is spooked. Will Sam’s questions reveal secrets relegated to the past and ruin her present and her future? And who hired him?

When mysterious newcomer to Happenstance, Julia Freemont, purchases an abandoned shop to turn it into a bistro, everyone is excited. But is Julia’s presence valid, or a ruse to get to Maisie?

Maisie will do anything to protect her family, but can she fight the power that money can buy? Revisit the townspeople of Happenstance as they rally round to help her through her struggle between fear and trust.

Crazy About Maisie is a cozy mystery, the second in the Happenstance Chronicles, about a little town that offers fresh choices and second chances. It’s sure to capture your heart and leave you wanting more.

My Review

Crazy About Maisie is Janice L. Dick’s second book about Happenstance, Nebraska. The book is part of the Mosaic Collection – books about Family by Design. Dick carries out this theme in a story about Maisie and her family. Her oldest child was born soon after she moved to Happenstance and before she met her husband. Donald adopted Zach as his own, but now there seems to be trouble from her past coming to their little town. I love the small town feel of this story – everyone cares for each other and does their best to support and protect those they love. 

While Crazy About Maisie is the second book about Happenstance, I think that readers can enjoy the story even if they haven’t read The Road to Happenstance. I hope that Janice L. Dick will continue this series – the characters have become friends and I want to know what else happens in their little town.

Crazy About Maisie is an adult cozy mystery but I think that high school students would enjoy it. It could be placed in a k-12 Christian school library or a church library.

I received a complimentary copy of Crazy About Maisie. This is my honest review
