A wonderful book about life and living it to the fullest. Maggie thinks her life is bogged down but she has her sister Jean, who is about to shock the world, and Mama, who always wears sequins and lusts after a red convertible, to keep her on her toes. Mama may be dying but she really knows how to live. Maggie and Jean learn that it is never too late to be like Mama. Characters you yearn to know and emulate. I was so sorry to see it end.

Spitfire Mama is ailing and reliable Maggie-the-family-chauffeur is moving back in to fix things. Older sister Jean has news of her own, Maggie's book proposals need work, she's adjusting to a divorce, finds a new professional challenge and probably romance. Then there's Jefferson, the endearing dog. Controlled mayhem with a southern flair . . . and lots of love. One of my favorites from the Next series.

Every once in a while, you read a story that you know will stay with you for a long, long time. For me, this is that book. A little bit DRIVING MISS DAISY, a little bit FRIED GREEN TOMATOES, and a small dash of SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE make this one of the most heartfelt-and funny-books that I've read recently. If you haven't read a book in Harlequin's new NEXT line, you need to. And you need to start with DRIVING ME CRAZY.

Maggie Dufrane is forty-one, recently divorced from Stanley. She's also the sister of forty-three year-old Jean, one of the women who gave original wring-your-hands, bring-on-the-tears Southern belles their name. She's also the daughter of Mama, a formidable woman who's into theatrics, good cooking, and making the lives of her daughters very, very interesting. When Mama takes a fall in her home and can't get up, it's up to Maggie and Jean to rescue her-through an open window-and get her to the hospital. When they learn that their Mama is suffering from congestive heart failure, their lives suddenly get a lot more complicated.

Maggie has always been a take-charge type of woman. Now, though, she's dealing with Jean's typical over-the-top tales of doom about their Mama's health. She now has a new houseguest, her Mama's dog Jefferson, who has a nervous disorder that makes him lose his hair when he's stressed. Not to mention that she's somehow come into contact with Tupelo's most famous radio DJ, Joseph "Rainman" Jones. As Maggie deals with all the turmoil in her life, including but not limited to waiting to hear from her editor about her new mystery manuscript, she wonders how life could possibly get any more complicated.

I absolutely loved DRIVING ME CRAZY. It's a story that captures every nuance of life, from dealing with your mother, to coping with your sister, to dealing with love and attraction during a time in your life when you shouldn't have the desire for anything remotely romantic. Told with heartfelt prose, Peggy Webb has penned a story that will leave you with both a smile and a tear, and you'll be able to tell immediately that she was telling the truth when she mentions in her introduction that her own Mama was her muse for the story. This is a definite winner, and you won't be disappointed in the least.

This book is absolutely wonderful. By the way, the author is my mother-in-law, Peggy Webb, and she really shines in this book. The story is one that many of us have or will face but it is handles with such flair and grace that you find your self laughing and enjoying the ride with Mama, who was based on Peggy's own mother. This book was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in 2007 so you know you will be in for an exceptionl read. Enjoy!!
