First Love for "Crazy Love You"

Each year when early proofs are ready for the new book, copies go to fellow authors. I send some; my editor and agent send some. It’s always with humility and a bit of nervousness that I do this. I know how busy everyone is — looming deadlines, family, research, a towering stack of other galleys — and that often just receiving another book in the mail is an imposition.  Also, these copies always go to people I admire, respect, and whose work has inspired me. So, there’s a lot of angst and nail-biting when I’m making my list.

Inevitably, each year I am awed by how warm and generous people are with their time and their words of support. This year the extraordinarily talented authors Tess Gerritsen, Megan Abbott, and John Searles had some really lovely things to say about CRAZY LOVE YOU. Each of these writers is special, with totally unique gifts and talents.  They are all, without exception, stellar human beings. And each of them has inspired me with their extraordinary work. So I’m happy to share the very kind words they have for CRAZY LOVE YOU:

“Mesmerizing and unnerving from its first pages to its stunner of an ending, Lisa Unger’s Crazy Love You is a tale you won’t soon forget.”
—Megan Abbott, author of THE FEVER.

“CRAZY LOVE YOU kept me reading like a madwoman, desperate to find out what happens next. This is a haunting, compulsive tale that will have you under its spell long after you’ve closed the book.”
—Tess Gerritsen, NYT bestselling author of DIE AGAIN.

“When I tell you I could not put this book down, I mean I COULD NOT PUT THIS BOOK DOWN!!! It is dark and twisted and captivating and full of endless surprises. I promise you’re in for a wild ride.”
—John Searles, bestselling author of HELP FOR THE HAUNTED and STRANGE BUT TRUE
