    Reformed art forger Tilda Goodnight reluctantly joins forces with semi-reformed con man Davy Dempsey. They want to steal a dubious painting and several million embezzled dollars from a lethal widow named Clea, who has targeted a mild-mannered art collector as her next dearly departed. Complications include her sister, the female impersonator; his best friend, the reformed cat burglar; a recidivist embezzler named Rabbit; a hit man; some lousy sex; and a juke box.

    Overall

    I had to write my first review of an audiobook. I got Faking It out from the library after listening to Welcome to Temptation. I liked WtT and the narrator did an awesome job. When I tried to read Faking It I just couldn't get in to it---I think I got bored and overwhelmed. One of the few times I forced myself to read something. So I surprised myself by getting the audiobook. What a difference!!!! I don't think it was just going through the book again. Hearing it read, I understood references and picked up on rich details I had missed in the book. I felt connected to the characters and less irritated by the secondary characters like Eve and Andrew etc. And once again, the narrator is fabulous in managing the voices of so many characters. Clea's voice is memorable from WtT but I give the narrator credit for being able to bring back Davy's voice (more subtle)from his brief parts in WtT. This is one example of where the audiobook was so much better than the written page, and let me tell you I LOVE my books. I think you will like this one. The Audio version increased my rating by 2 stars.
