With over 175,000 books downloaded worldwide, the bestselling author of The Mystic Saga, Dominion, Saving Brooksie, and Ghosts of Ophidian now brings you a tale of three teenagers who may have just found a modern day treasure map at their summer job.
It’s the summer of 1999 and the price of gas is $1.09 per gallon, J-Lo is releasing her first album, and in the small town of Riverton, Bradley Brock is searching for 1.3 million dollars.
With the whole summer ahead of him, Bradley stumbles unwittingly into his first summer job. While it appears to be an opportunity to learn responsibility and make a few bucks in the process, it is anything but! With a manager that likes to play pranks and sports in the store, a cashier that is encouraged to harass customers, and a crazy guy who knocks holes in the walls, Brad finds himself almost alone in his sanity.
Then Brad discovers a journal that documents a fellow employee’s search for a large bag of money that was lost many years ago. With the assistance of two of his friends, he embarks on a journey to follow the trail of the money and ultimately to nab it for themselves.
The only problem – someone else is searching for the same bag of money and he’s willing to kill for it.
Scott McElhaney is the recipient of the Xulon Book Award for his first suspense novel “Mommy’s Choice.” Now he is making most of his novels available to Kindle readers at the very accessible price of only 99 cents. Scott is a veteran of the US Navy, a loyal husband of more than 18 years, and a father of two boys.

This book is the results of spending more than 5 years as the "world's worst store manager" (in his opinion) at a local business that will remain unnamed - some of the best years of Scott's life.
"One Crazy Summer" Reviews
Really liked it. I wasn't sure what to expect from One Crazy Summer since I got it for just a few Cents.
It was a fun read - Scott McElhaney's writing style is good and it made me want to read on. The story is well thought through.
A bit weird were the religious "messages". I don't have anything against that at all^^ but it was just way too superficial and quite bizarre and misplaced. They just seemed to appear out of thin air...I agree with some of the reviews here that say that the characters could use a bit more depth. It was a story about basically finding a bag of money and the characters involved seemed a bit plain but then again it is a teenage adventure about one crazy summer and what's not to like about a light and lazy summer read (in Febuary)! (Not everything has to be deep and meaningful, right? :-))
Very good book! Good characters. Includes coming of age, action, adventure, a little romance and religion? I enjoyed reading!
This was a very implausible story on many levels. There were a couple of characters in the story whose existence and makeup were only there for the convenience of the story line and whose actions and intents did not make sense.
Good pool book
"With the whole summer ahead of him, Bradley stumbles unwittingly into his first summer job."
Scott McElhaney has a great writing style. I have enjoyed his sci fi books and I totally loved this one. Who doesn't love a flashback from our past when we were young and stupid? Several of the characters reminded me of people I knew in my past. There is some very humorous parts in this book. This is good, clean, fun fiction. It is written for adults, but I recommend for pre-teens and up. I give it five stars.
P.S. All of Scott's books are only .99 on amazon for Kindle.
