Publisher's Summary

New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Jennifer Crusie returns with her most hilarious, sizzling novel yet.

Nell Dysart's in trouble. Her divorce is 18 months old, she's been sleepwalking through life, and the best job she can get is with a detective agency that specializes in relationship work. Determined to turn her life around, Nell flings herself into making McKenna Investigations a better place.

On day one, she uncovers an embezzler. On day two, she turns up bribery. On day three, she has sex with the wrong man. On day four, she steals a dog. On day five, her boss tries to fire her... And fails miserably. Because even Gabe McKenna has to admit that no matter how much he hates the confusion she's brought into his life, Nell shares his passion for making things right.

It's not long before they share another passion, one they can't ignore - even in the face of distractions like adultery, blackmail, arson, murder, and really bad business cards.

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

    When I clean, drive or exercise I listen to romance. The steamier the better but it must have a great story as well!

    Story
    "Not Jennifer Cruise's best but has potential"

    I did enjoy this story, it was light and fun with a some mystery mixed in. Not Jennifer Cruise's best work but it was worth the listen. The main guy was a bit arrogant and snotty but learns to appreciate her as times goes by. I really like Jennifer Cruise's work and found this story delightful.

    "I totaly enjoyed this book"

    I like the characters and their interactions. I like the women had a little life on them -- in their 30s and 40s. I like that the men were realistic and thought with their heads and not their pants. Riley was my favorite. I'd like to hear more of his story. It is a fun listen. A little hard to turn off when you know you should be getting some sleep!

    I love to read, fly and play tennis. I always have a book and an audible book going at the same time. I'm a mystery/thriller junky.

    Story
    "A Fun, Sexy Murder Mystery"

    This book was enjoyable. The characters were very likeable. Almost everyone was related by marriage, ex-marriage or best friends which made it difficult to follow at first. Secrets and murder combined wth sex, lots of sex. In the end the murders were all solved, the man got his woman (or woman got her man) and everyone who should have been happy was. Sometimes I just need light, fun, make me feel good stories....murder and all! This book fit that bill.

    Story
    "A Good Buy from a Sale, Nothing Great Though"

    When I bought this in a sale, I really didn't know if I would enjoy it or not. I was not really expecting anything special and that was what I got. Nothing special or outstanding about it. Fast Women is a good read and the plot of pretty good. Yet, at times it seemed overdone and a little too dramatic. Nell certainly lives a very roller-coaster-styled life.

    All the characters introduced in Fast Women were funny and somewhat realistic. I could at least see myself knowing some of them; however, for it being placed in 2000, some of the ideals that the women had on marriage and men seemed a little outdated in my opinion. One thing that annoyed me about the writing was that Crusie used, "He said" and "She said" too much, so much so that it was a little distracting. Even in a long conversation between two characters, she would use it constantly. Eventually, I did get used to it, for I wanted to see how the story ended. And thankfully it wrapped up nicely and completely, leaving no hanging ends, though seemed a bit rushed.

    The narration was okay. I have definitely heard better. I loved Burr's sass and depth that she gave to the female characters. Yet, a lot of the men sounded the same and it was hard for me to tell the difference between the characters. Overall, Fast Women was a good book, especially since it was on sale. Just don't except anything amazing.

    "not a success"

    These rich women's identites are totally tied up with their men and their china, and they're boring, and they don't get much better over the course of 13 long hours. Everybody repeats their past mistakes, their parents' mistakes, everybody's waiting for a convenient savior. It's hard to say characters are stiff for a romance novel, but they really aren't real. I can't believe I still have 40 minutes of this bloody book to listen to, when it could have been over several times already, sparing us a lot of the mystery that isn't a mystery at all, many stupid decisions, and a ton of china talk.

    "When you need an easy read..."

    Fast Women reminded me of a Susan Elizabeth Philips book...interestingly enough, at the end of the book, Jennifer Crusie gives credit to SEP for helping with her books. I just finished an emotionally challenging book, and this was a nice break. I probably would have edited quite a bit out of the book, but all-in-all it made sense by the end.

    "good but nothing special"

    Average love-mystery plot with average characters and average development. Still, it's easy listening at a good pace. A bit too overdone both in story and narration.

    "Loved this story"

    Very credit worthy. Great characters it will make you laugh at all the crazy situations they get themselves into Nell and Suz are hystercial! I would have given this 5 stars but I didn't care all that much for the narrator. Don't let that stop you because the story is worth it.
