Four Stars

The Yates weren’t too crazy. But Callie had a few loose. She ran herself thin just to care for the people around her. Just like being a mom you take on so much and don’t let anyone in to help. Callie has taken care of everyone for years. When do you start remembering that your not alone in life. It takes a lot of courage and love to do what Callie did. The author wrote this story to compel us to think outside the normal and to learn that happiness just needs a little faith.

The Crazy Yates by Kimberly Packard is the perfect novella to curl up and read surrounding the holidays! Despite being short, the story packs a punch with great characters with depth. I really enjoyed Callie, the strong writing and emotion throughout the novella made me feel like she was one of my close friends. I would give this book 5 stars and encourage anyone to give it a go. It’s really a heartwarming read!

The Cray Yates by Kimberly Packard is a fast short read that you will want to finish in one reading. This is not my first book by Kimberly Packard and will not be my last. This story was a major emotional story for me. There were high points and low points. The story is so realistic that I could see Callie being a close friend. This story gave me hope that there is some Christmas Magic left in the world. This is a special story with a young lady, Callie who lost her mother. Callie being the oldest sibling took upon the role of “Mother” to her younger siblings and she grew up fast. There are many things stacking up against the Yates family. Will Callie be able to get some Christmas Magic or will the circumstances be so great that things will fall apart? You will have to read this short story to find the answers.

The Crazy Yates is written by Kimberly Packard and it’s the first book that I have read by this author. The characters are amazing, the storyline is great and the description is awesome.
This is a short Christmas story about a family down on their luck but they have each other.
Callie Yates loved her family unconditionally, how she simply stepped up to the plate and did what had to be done for her family. She soon realizes how she also had lost herself and how she needed to be reminded of what a true family is and let them in.
I’m not going to say anything else because I don’t want to give anything away.
I really enjoyed this book and author and will be reading more by her.

The Crazy Yates by Kimberly Packard. This is an amazing book. I wasn’t prepared for it to end as quickly as it did. I wanted it to continue which is the sign of a very good book. It’s the story of Callie Yates, the oldest daughter of 4 siblings. When her dad becomes very sick with anxiety and agoraphobic (won’t leave the house) she is stuck with taking care of the household including being the breadwinner. She works so hard and tries to give her siblings the childhood she never had. When she finds out her store is closing where she works, will the family be lost forever or will Callie find a Christmas Miracle? This book is so sweet, full of love and Christmas hope.

Note to self: Pay attention to book length. I was not prepared for this book to end so quickly! Like other Kimberly Packard books I have read, I didn’t want to put down The Crazy Yates, and read it in one setting. I highly recommend it and all her books. She writes in a way that you feel like you know the character. She is very descriptive and the characters are genuine and realistic. This is a short story about the Yates family, specifically Callie, the oldest daughter. She is left to look after her family when her father develops such bad anxiety and agoraphobia he cannot leave the house, and her mother cannot handle it and bails. Leaving Callie to raise and take care of her father, and younger brother and sisters. It seems like bad luck piled on bad. Will Callie get a Christmas miracle this year?

The Crazy Yates by Kimberly Packard is a Christmas novella that broke my heart a little bit while reading. I felt so bad got Callie at first, when it rains it pours especially with the bad and that is the case for Callie and her family.

Helping raise her younger siblings and being the sole financial support has caused her to grow up way too soon. As the oldest she felt like it was duty, which I understand since I had to do the same thing.

One fateful trip to Amarillo changed so much for Callie and her family for the better.

This is definitely a feel good Christmas story. But I would love to see more of the Yates family.

This book was a very short read but full of emotion. I enjoyed reading this story, I wish it would have been longer. Callie is a young but strong woman trying to take care of her family, but feeling like she’s failing. Although there are some struggles having teenagers and an agoraphobic father in the house, there is also a very strong family bond. Will the Yates be able to overcome their struggles? Will Callie make the right decision and tell her family? To find these things out you must read this emotional story. I recommend this book.

  1. The Crazy Yates by Kimberly Packard is a heartwarming short story. This book will draw you into the characters and have you invested in them in no time at all.
    Callie is a girl who just needs a break. But will she be able to find one?
    Not only Callie but her whole family is one that you cannot help but fall in love with. The authors managed to pack so much into this little book but it doesn’t at any point seem rushed. This is a great short story to lose yourself in easily.View all my reviews

This was a short read about some really lovely characters. It didn’t take me long at all to get in this story and I really loved Callie. I could honestly feel that she had the weight of the world on her shoulders with everything that she had to do around the house and everything that she had been doing for her family for so many years. At times I easily forgot how young she actually was. It was pretty clear how much Callie’s family meant to her and so she did everything she could to try and support them in their time of need. I loved that the magic of Christmas shone through in this story and at a time where Callie really needed it! The ending to the story was really sweet and I would absolutely love to read more about this family again in the future.
