Item description for Jamaican Me Crazy: A Christmas Escape by Debbie DiGiovanni...

What you wouldn't give to escape the madness of the holiday season, right?This is your chance. Take a trip, all expenses paid, with the ladies of the Lakeside Baptist Christmas Club as they trade the Christmas rush and icy slush for sun and sandy beaches.

When putting together another "perfect" Christmas is just too much, the women of Lakeside rebel (as much as Baptists can) and buy five tickets to Jamaica. Trading their to-do lists for sunscreen and flip-flops, the ladies think they're going to have the time of their lives. Only their sunny holiday is not quite what they bargained for, and they get a cold dose of reality, sans sugarplums, for Christmas.

With a sprinkle of laughter, a dash of suspense, and a splash of romance, this cast of characters is sure to amuse you. So don your best "island" jammies, turn off the phone, grab a cup of cocoa, and experience sunny Jamaica this Christmas.

Bon voyage!

Reviews - What do customers think about Jamaican Me Crazy: A Christmas Escape?

LOVED it!!  Nov 13, 2007
I LOVED this book! I laughed often. It seems all too real but in a very funny way. I kept telling my husband while reading this book that I hope they'll make this into a movie without changing the dialogue at all (but that'll never happen).

Now I HATE when one person really builds something up and then my expectations aren't met. So I hope I don't do this for you. I hope you have similar humor as me and that you enjoy it as thoroughly as I did. I read it first at the library but now I want my own copy to read every couple of years.
disappointed!  Feb 5, 2007
Where do I start? This book was all over the place and I felt like I was on a roller coaster trying to keep up. First of all, there was so much head hopping from one point of view to another that it read more like a newbie writer's manuscript than a writer with several books under her belt. What ever happened to good old fashioned scene breaks to change point of views? Second, this Jonah Beach character. This poor man changed names so much in this book I'm still not sure what his name actually was supposed to be. First of all, He was introduced as Jonah Beach. Okay. Good interesting name. Then I see a couple of chapters later a character calling him Jonah Beach Livingston. Oookay. That was his name a couple of times then He became Jonah Clark Beach. Livingston was dropped. Totally. Then he became Jonah Quest. By then I was all but screaming, Make up Your MIND!!!!!!!! On to other things. The scenes in this book were just that. Scenes. They didn't make up a book. They were like a bunch of cute scenes thrown together and you were supposed to figure a story out from there. It made me think the writer was trying so hard to be funny, that she forgot something majorly important. It's called a PLOT. I had high hopes for this writer after reading her previous book. Now I'm not so sure my money will be well spent if I buy her next book.
deep holiday chick lit tale   Oct 3, 2006
In Minnesota, Jennifer started the mommy revolt as she overdoses on Christmas before the holiday even has begun. Jumping on Jennifer's discontented theme, Becky, who won on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire thanks to her pals, offers to take Peggy, Martha, Claire, Dawn, and Lillian to Jamaica; all accept except Martha who finds it offensive to leave family during the holiday season. The spouses agree with Martha as their wives traipse off for sun and fun.

Still the quintet leaves for Jamaica with hopes of getting rid of stress. However, little goes right as baggage is lost and roommates argue over everything including who is stealing things from them. Still each begins to look at what has caused their cynical attitude from a new viewpoint; that of "No Problem, Mon".

This is a deep holiday chick lit tale with the five amigas being fully developed. The story line is at its best when it focuses on how each of the four married females relook what disturbs them trying to wear the moccasins of their spouses, children, and others. Though Becky as the lone single has a romance that seems more required than needed; the overriding key to JAMAICAN ME CRAZY is a humorous look at five women working through realistic problems; besides there is also Felix the wonderful cat.
