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.

    "Cute but predictable"

    Fast Women is a funny book. If you like Jennifer Cruise's writing, you'll appreciate this book. The narrator does a lovely job.

    "Not the Best"

    This is my sixth Jennifer Crusie books ??? I can say it was the best one of hers I have read. I loved the characters in the book but felt it took too long to get to the meat of the story. The ending is predicable and several twist and turns in the book ??? nothing you can???t see coming. In general it was a fairly fun book to listen too. Like the previous books of hers she has her reoccurring themes ??? it dishware.

    "Loved the Book but....."

    I think I'm also discovering that so much of liking an audio book has to do with the narrator as well. I knew I heard this voice before and I did - w/Nora Roberts Three Sisters Trilogy. She just has this voice that puts you right into the story (wonderful). I just think that anything Sandra Burr narrates is bound to be a good listen. Obviously the book needs to be good but I'm thinking Sandra probably only does "keepers".

    "Annoying!!!"

    Cute, easy listening but the main characters are very annoying. Good listen for a mindless summer day.

    "Too fast for me"

    I didn't enjoy this one as much as I did some of her other books...this one had too many fast women! Just too much "bed jumping" for my taste. Sex partners seem to be incidental to these characters.

    "OMG LOL"

    "If this was a series - I'd be a faithful fan"
    What did you love best about Fast Women?

    Tbhe plots were interesting. The characters genuine. The relationships warm... a good quick feel good chic book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I enjoyed the women - their humor. The women were real and not catty...real friends.


    Which character – as performed by Sandra Burr – was your favorite?

    I had a difficult time at first with the pace that she read in....slow down.....


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There were many tender moments.


    Any additional comments?

    Not a heavy book. The hardest part was keeping track of the characters and their relationshops. I enjoyed it tremendously and would love to visit with them again.
