Round up to 3.5 stars.
I seesawed between exasperation, anger, and hope while reading this novel. It broke my heart when Julie would have her panic attacks over her husband's behavior. But, I was exasperated and angry that Julie wouldn't address it head-on. She buries her feelings, and runs away to begin a new life, but still can't get Dan out of her head or heart.
While I applauded Julie for making the most of her life, creating successful businesses multiple times, and treating employees like family-I was still angry with her for her timidity in dealing with her marriage. Her group of friends were all creative, talented, and loyal to Julie. They were the kind of friends you want and I hope everyone has at least one person in their life like Julie's friends.
Dan infuriated me--he was a liar, but pretended to be so loving. However, I don't think his character development was as deep as it could be.
Having said all this, I DO want to know what happens next!
Side note-there were several cases of words missing, hopefully these will be corrected before the next printing.
Thanks to Bookish First and Judy Prescott Marshall for the ARC of Still Crazy in exchange for an honest review. ( )

Once I started reading Still Crazy by Judy Prescott Marshall, I had a hard time putting it down. Julie suspects that her husband of 30 years is having an affair. She has suspected the same in the past and has never been able to really prove it. When confronted, Dan denies, denies, denies. Instead of confronting Dan this time, she sets out to find the truth herself and lots of time passes with no real resolution. She is not ok. The few people who know her suspicions tell her he would never do such a thing. She loves her husband and he seems to love her but she can't let it go. By the end of section one of the book Julie has made all the preparations to leave and she does, leaving no trace or clue as to where she has gone. In section two of the book she proceeds to build a life for herself and makes many new friends who become her family. Even with a new life and a possible new love, Julie can't forget Dan and her love for him. I won't go into any more detail, but lets just say that this book is not low on angst.

As I said, I was drawn into this book by the story and couldn't put it down. Now, that is not to say that I didn't have a few frustrations with it as I read. First of all, I was confused by the timeline of the story. Julie is supposed to be 49 at the beginning of the story, but that doesn't really match up to the dates given in regards to her and Dan's relationship. This might not bother most, but it did me. Secondly, there are quite a few times where Julie references her faith in God in getting her through and prays to God for strength and guidance. I have no trouble with that or faith based romance stories, but this book is mixed. While she shows this faith at times, there is also language unbecoming to someone of strong Christian faith. She also seems to seriously consider sleeping with a man who is not her husband. Christians do make poor choices sometimes, but Julie's conflict in this situation had nothing to do with displeasing God. Things like this left me a little confused as to the author's use of Christianity in this book. The love interest in the second part of the book actually had me scratching my head. He is in love with her, but I really couldn't understand why. We really don't see him falling for her, she doesn't even really spend much time with him, but rather she actively avoids him. Lastly, I found it interesting that from the beginning I wasn't really sure what was true about Dan and his affairs. I didn't know if Julie really was right or wrong. I think the author does this on purpose and it is one of the things that kept me reading the book. I needed to know what the truth was.

I truly loved the second part of the book. I loved how Julie built her inn and how she filled it with people she loved and trusted. How they all had each other's backs and worked so well together was fun to read and it would be a dream to work in such a place. I was mostly satisfied with the ending and hope to read the author's next book which seems to be a connected to this one. I hope Julie and Dan are doing well and that we will get to see that.

My sincere thanks to Judy Prescott Marshall and BookishFirst for giving me the opportunity to read this book and give my unbiased opinion of it. ( )

A love story, of two flawed people who are truly in love but whose faults finally tear them apart. They each begin the journey to healing separately. Julie's journey takes her to Rhode Island where she builds a new life and market new friends. But it is their love in and belief in the Lord that gives them the strength to heal and rejoin each other in the bonds of love. ( )

Thank you to LibraryThing and the author for this ARC.

Nothing against religion or The Bible but it was a little too Christian to my liking. Then it got ironic with the bad words, making love, etc. so I was a little confused of how the author wanted to write this book.

The title was appropriate since she was still crazy for her husband.

I enjoyed it nonetheless and was shocked to say the least that Julie left her husband Dan for supposedly he cheated but never confronted him before running off to Rhode Island to start a B&B. She met a lot of new friends and enjoyed life but yet felt guilty the whole time. Also confusing was that after almost 2 years living there, Dan never tried once to contact her. Then Chad, a visitor of the inn, fell in love with her, wanted to marry her, and she couldn't give her heart to him either because she was still married. Then all of a sudden, Chad was there on behalf of Dan but Dan didn't know he found her.

The ending is what I expected and there's a sequel coming out in 2022. ( )
