I’m still rediscovering some of Anne Stuart’s older books and this time I read “Crazy Like a Fox”.

Residing in the attic of the Delacroix family mansion, Peter Andrew Delacroix Jaffrey exerted a powerful fascination on his cousin’s widow.

Margaret Jaffrey had been warned not to trust Peter, that his sad smile hid a dangerous past.

But Margaret had to learn the truth for herself. Was it reckless fantasy that dreamed she could have what was hopelessly out of reach?

Or love’s intuition that drew her to

I adore Anne Stuart's heroes, especially the slightly crazy ones. (Even if they're faking it.) The heroine was bit annoying, though, in particular with her continued running from and distrust of the hero. Yes, she has a daughter to take care of, but as a reader, it's rather frustrating if the heroine still can't trust the hero even near the very end of the book. This might be influenced by the fact that I know the hero's wonderful, since I can see his thoughts, but it was still annoying.

Whenever I read an Anne Stuart book, I hope for insanity and with a title of "Crazy Like A Fox," I couldn't resist.

The setup was interesting. A young widow is facing homelessness with her nine-year-old daughter and turns to the only place she can: Her bastard husband's neurotic family.

Oh, this is one of the earlier books I have read. Anne Stuart is just a splendid author. love her works and this is no exception..

I don't know what draws me to this story. The mystery and suspense you you on edge till the end. Both the leads Peter and Margaret are well written.

Peter was just amazing, unpredictable, crazy, intelligent and hot.. He also scared the Shit out of me with his unpredictable nature.

I liked them both and especially the time they spent in New Orleans street celebrating Ma
