Publisher's Summary

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. Trouble ensues....

©2004 Jennifer Crusie; (P)2004 Brilliance Audio, Inc.

What the Critics Say

"Crusie has a gift for concocting nutty scenarios and witty one-liners." (People)
"Cruise's fifth novel is an entertaining, fast-paced romp with a pleasing love story at its heart." (Booklist)
"Aasne Vigesaa....spices up the story with a brashness that works for this novel filled with odd characters and amusing plots." (AudioFile)

    Story
    "Art, cons, an! love!"

    This is one of my favorite books. I love the overlap with Welcome to Temptation -- completing the story of the Dempseys. Complex characters, great dialogue, and even a little education about art.

    I wish the narrator hadn't rushed through it, though. And, I caught one error on a major line by Davy about the tension between Tilda and her father.

    Story
    "Funny characters is humorous situations."

    I really enjoyed this book but it took awhile to catch on to the many characters. The voices could have been a tad bit more different. One I got up to speed I could tell the characters apart.

    I liked just about all the characters. Matilda and Davy were my favorites (once I realized Daisy was really Davy!) But Louise and Eve were quite fascinating too. Even Clea was enjoyable.

    It has a Neil Simon type feel with a lot going on and funny characters.

    "Should have listened to Preview"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would have to tell a friend that the performance was not good.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Jennifer Crusie? Why or why not?

    Yes. I have bought other books by her and liked them.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrators voice was like listening to glass crack.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    Another narrator such as Susan Boyce

    "Jennifer Crusie is my new favorite author!"

    This one took a little bit to get into but then took off and became a very complex and interesting story, not to mention funny. Always unusual characters that you fall in love with or hate.

    "Classic Romantic Comedy"

    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.
