Good Books Don't Promote Violence
This sequel to Welcome to Temptation is a classic romantic comedy with engaging secondary characters and a cute dog. One of those endearing stories that you can enjoy multiple times for years to come.
I have heard this book twice now and while.the first time i liked it, then the second time it was i really enjoyed it, it seemed better. Funny and witty. I am aure i'm going ro listen it again in the future.
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!
