They Call Me Crazy
Kelly Stone Gamble
The police chief wants a quick verdict—he’s running for sheriff and has no time for crazy talk. But like Roland’s corpse, secrets start to surface, and they bring more to light than anybody expected. Everyone in Cass’s life thinks they know her—her psychic grandmother, her promiscuous ex-best friend, her worm-farming brother-in-law, and maybe even her local ghost. But after years of separate silences, no one knows the whole truth. Except Roland. And he’s not talking.
Then a young divorcée named Lucy shows up, and she’s wonderful, and she’s got this great family, and Will realizes that if there’s anyone with whom he could start again, it’s her. But what he doesn’t seem to get is that it won’t work if he stays up there—she’ll leave or, worse, she’ll stay and end up like him. And the question becomes whether or not he’ll figure this out in time.
