I have already listened to this twice, the second time with girlfriends, and plan to share it again soon with another friend. Fun from beginning to end...
Can't say, because anything I said would be a spoiler!
Again, spoiler alert!
Fake can sometimes be more real than reality!
Light, fun listen with great narration. Almost as good as taking a mini-vacation!
Enjoyable listen but a bit slow at times. It's always enjoyable hearing about the Dempsey family and finally getting to meet dad.
Great giggles and loads of fun with believable, interesting characters and interesting, well-developed plot. Art history with a twist, just like the protagonists.
Can't tell you how many times I have read the story, listen to the story and every time I enjoy it more and more. I hope you do too.
My hands are always busy--I'm always working on something, all day long. Audiobooks keep my mind happily occupied, thankyou Audible.
I love books by Jennifer Crusie. This one started out a bit slow in my humble opinion, but it picked up after a short while and I was hooked. Crusie's signature style involves equal parts mayhem, humor and romance. Plus she's a dog lover--there's always a dog somewhere in her story. Great read, somewhat disappointing narration but it was still very enjoyable.
I saw the other review, and realized I had to put in my two cents. I love this book. I've listened to it numerous time. But I LOVE Jennifer Crusie's writing style in general..the snark, sarcasm, the fast pace, the almost non-linear, border line nonsensical-ness of it all! I mean you have drag queens, art forgery, con men, and hit men all wrapped into one...it's going to be a wild ride (which is another great book). I love Tilda and Davey, the whole caper reminds me of the 40s screwball comdies...and well, a little bit like my nutty family. That said, I thought the narrator did a great job on the varying voices and especially the crazy fast pace. Makes me want to listen again!
just when I thought I knew what was going to happen....it was something else, very surprising.
all the twists and turns
all the different voices were done so well, I knew who was speaking even before she said the name
everybody is faking something
loved welcome to temptation and faking it, is there another one? I love to start a new book already knowing some of the characters
The book is kind-of a French farce with a damsel in distress and a knight in somewhat tarnished armor. It was delightful to listen to during my 80-minute commute each way. Sad moments leavened the silliness to keep the story interesting and the plot moving briskly. I think it definitely was worth the credit!
This book is . . . . great. Which should not be a huge shock considering it is written by Crusie and narrated by Vigesaa. This dynamic duo teamed up on "Welcome to Temptation" another great listen and while not exactly a prequel to this book they do have some over lapping characters so it is fun to have listened to both. I loved loved loved all the Goodnights and the strays they have picked up along the way and wish I could know them all in real life or even better to sit in on a poker game. Every character in this novel no matter how prominent of role they had in the plot were multidimensional. Ms. Cruise is so talented when it comes to bringing her characters to life and they seem like they could be real people and they\ way they interact with each other makes me lover her stories. She does an exceptional job "pacing" the book, they are a fun listen from start to finish. This book contains wit, humor and heat and often in the same scenes. I would recommend this novel to anyone with a sense of humor or split personalities or likes a little romance, art, music, dogs, cross-sticks and or movies. I kept hoping this book would go on and on and the worse thing I can say about it is that it ended. Davey and what's her name, I hope to see you pop up again in a later Cruise novel.
