She Drives Me Crazy by Leslie Kelley


When she was good, she was very, very good. . .
When Emma Frasier returns home to joyful, Georgia, she's greeted with the kinds of winks and lusty grins one might offer. . .an adult film star?

But when she was bad. . .
Thanks to small-town gossip and citizens who clearly need to get a life, Joyful's residents think Emma Jean is the "famous star" building a strip club in town. And that her barely concealed. . .uh, attributes are the ones gracing the new interstate billboard.

She was better.
As if being taken for a blue movie queen isn't rattling enough, there's Johnny Walker, the local bad boy turned good-a man who tempts Emma to be just as wild and wicked as Joyful thinks she is.


Emma returns to her hometown of Joyful, Georgia with her tail between her legs after getting fleeced for all she was worth by a scummy boss and even scummier best friend. All she has left in the world is a handful of designer clothes, a cute red convertable and her grandma's house and pecan farm that was willed to her.

But when she gets back, due to town gossip, she's as shunned as she was the day she left Joyful, a disgraced high school senior who got caught with her pants down with none other than the baddest boy in town, Johnny Walker (gosh, I just love that name. Seriously!). And of course, the first person she happens to run into (literally) in the grocery store, with the town looking on, is none other than Johnny Walker himself.

She's determinted to make a new life for herself - if only temporarily - until she realizes that someone has sold her grandmother's land, without her knowledge. Between ending up in jail and between the sheets with Johnny, she tries to find out who stole her land...and then a murder happens.

This is the prequel to She's Got The Look, which I read ages ago and enjoyed. Johnny was a hot motherbrother and I loved seeing Nick again. Emma was a good heroine, too, not too flighty and willing to stand up for herself. The residents of Joyful cracked me up, because I grew up in a small town and the people there were just like these ones. In everybody's business and gossiping about everything. Plus, there was this lecherous old man who played pocket hockey all the time and he had me laughing out loud. Dirty Old Man.

This isn't some deep, heavy reading material, but it was fun for what it was. I recommend it if you're looking for a light read for the beach or other summer vacation spot.
