    Story
    "Fun, Fun, Fun.."
    Would you listen to Faking It again? Why?

    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...


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Faking It?

    Can't say, because anything I said would be a spoiler!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Again, spoiler alert!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Fake can sometimes be more real than reality!


    Any additional comments?

    Light, fun listen with great narration. Almost as good as taking a mini-vacation!

    "Good sequel to "Welcome to Temptation""

    Enjoyable listen but a bit slow at times. It's always enjoyable hearing about the Dempsey family and finally getting to meet dad.

    "A great book made terrific by the audioperformer"

    Great giggles and loads of fun with believable, interesting characters and interesting, well-developed plot. Art history with a twist, just like the protagonists.

    Story
    "Hysterically Funny"

    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.

    Story
    "One of my favorites"

    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!
