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....

Critic Reviews

"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)

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.

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.

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!

What did you love best about Faking It?

just when I thought I knew what was going to happen....it was something else, very surprising.

What did you like best about this story?

all the twists and turns

What about Aasne Vigesaa’s performance did you like?

all the different voices were done so well, I knew who was speaking even before she said the name

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

everybody is faking something

Any additional comments?

loved welcome to temptation and faking it, is there another one? I love to start a new book already knowing some of the characters
