She's proud that she gives her elderly independents something to look forward to each day, even if her partner, Martin, is disparaging of her efforts. But then Martin has a secret agenda Celia knows nothing about. Meanwhile she defends her geriatric charges, fights to secure gallery space for their artwork, and fights to keep The Harbour, a home the residents can truly call home, from being closed. She takes on the might of the town council; to the point of leaping from a church steeple to bring attention to the plight of her independents, no matter that she might fall and end up splattered all over the pavement. When she does fall, however, it's much more painfully. Police Constable Alex Burrows, the son of long time Harbour resident, Colonel Burrows, whose sense of humour has made her laugh, whose tragic personal circumstances have made her cry, whose smile has stolen her heart; turns out to be just as much a liar as Martin. Can Celia ever trust again? Can Alex get past her protective family of friends, forgotten by most of the people in their own lives, and convince her to trust him, to love him, as he does her?...

The Madness of Celia Summers Reviews
The Madness of Celia Summers is one of those books you just fall in love with. You laugh, you cry but most of all you’ll fall for these characters. Quirky – most definitely, loving – without a doubt, and more caring than you could imagine. Well almost all of them, there is of course as always the requisite Jerk! Celia Summers is an ex-banker, mother of two, partner of one, and art therapist for the most charming bunch of geriatrics we’ve met in a long time. As Celia struggles with keeping her life together between Martin – who is more interested in making money than getting married, her baby son, teenage son and trying to save the home of her charges; we learn about this kind hearted woman who is everything to everyone but does nothing for herself.Returning home from racing to the hospital to see Martin’s mother, who fell and was hurt, Celia has an accident in a borrowed car. She and the baby are unhurt but when she is assisted at the scene by Constable Alex Burrows her life will never be the same. Fighting the attraction she feels for him, she insists that they are just friends. Alex is on board with that, having had enough to do with that thing called love.As you read on you’ll realize that there really is no madness to Celia Summers, even though some of those around her would like you to believe that. There are quite a few surprises in this story, with ups and downs you don’t expect, all building to a very dramatic climax, and one worth waiting for. Definitely a keeper for my bookshelf, Charlotte Chalmers has a winner with The Madness of Celia Summers – from the first page through the last you’ll love every minute of it.
