Charlotte Hughes is a fairly new author to me since I’ve only just found out about her and her romance novels a couple of months ago. I was contacted through an e-mail from Charlotte Hughes online PR who wanted to do a link exchange. That then led to me receiving her two recent releases of her new Kate Holly Case series, which the first novel is called What Looks Like Crazy
and the second novel is called Nutcase
and it will be released on Tuesday, February 24th. I went to Charlotte’s website when I received this e-mail to find out more about her novel What Looks Like Crazy
. I read the book blurb and it really intrigued me so I went on to read the excerpt of the first chapter of the novel. By the time I got to the end of the excerpt I knew that I would really like this novel when I finally got it to read. Since I read and reviewed the first book, What Looks Like Crazy
, got me very intrigued with Kate Holly and all the family, friends and patients in her life I was really excited to get into the second novel.
Ever since she blew up her own office with nitroglycerin (she was sure the patient was bluffing—until the vial exploded), psychologist Kate Holly has been one step away from going off her rocker. She is really having some issues all of her own that I wonder how a psychologist can treat patients but have problems of their own that they can’t solve like when they treat their own patients. It doesn’t help that she’s still in love with her sexy firefighter ex-husband Jay who she still has hot monkey sexy with even though they are officially and legally divorced from each other. They both want to patch things up, but Kate has been using sex to avoid talking, and he wants to know if there is something she is not telling him. Well yes, there is something that Kate hasn’t told him and that is about to get evicted from her office, and her best option may be to share space with her hot tub-loving ex-boyfriend, Dr. Thad Glazer. But I don’t know if that’s going to work out because even though they are on friendly terms with each other Kate and Thad have issues that keep them separate from each other for the better.
With her oddball patients, her meddling mother, Dixie, and her eccentric secretary, Mona, thrown into the mix—not to mention a rise of suspicious fires—will Kate put her life back together before she ends up in a padded cell of her own? Well it was great reading this novel to find out that answer to that last question and it was funny and exciting to read all the crazy happening to Kate. Charlotte Hughes has really hooked me and I don’t know if I want to be unhooked by this amazingly funny and exhilarating series of novels. Finishing this novel only left me wanting more about Kate Holly and her sexy fireman hubby Jay as well as Mona, Thad, Trixie and Dixie. Especially since that ending was just teasing me to keep watch for when the next novel in the series, High Anxiety, will be released for me to buy and devour in a couple of hours. This is a book that I will highly recommend to everyone who loves to read romantic comedy novels because this was definitely a funny and charming novel. I give the book 4 Open Books:

They both want to patch things up, but Kate has been using sex to avoid talking, and he wants to know; is there something she is not telling him?
Well yes, there is. Kate is about to get evicted from her office, and her best option may be to share space with her hot tub-loving ex-boyfriend, Dr. Thad Glazer. With her oddball patients, her meddling mother, and her eccentric secretary thrown into the mix—not to mention a spate of suspicious fires—will Kate put her life back together before she ends up in a padded cell?
