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)

    Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.

    "Fun listen"

    A nice tale of some really quirky characters. Jennifer tells a good tale and keeps the story going throughout. The little twist at the end was nice.

    "One of Crusies best!"
    What made the experience of listening to Faking It the most enjoyable?

    Loved the characters, SO funny and excellent narration!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters are so real and flawed and lovable and hilarious. Nothing like Crusie's one liners...


    What does Aasne Vigesaa bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her intonations and superb narration skills made me feel as if I was listening to a play rather than to a book,

    "Easy listen - good distraction"

    Enjoyable, doesn't make you work too hard. Sometimes you just need something light to distract from everyday life and this works well.

    I own a small shop selling custom/costume Jewelry. I love to listen to audio books while I create jewelry. I love all animals and get very upset when they aren't treated well, even in fiction.

    Story
    "Confusing with a Capitol "K""
    Would you try another book from Jennifer Crusie and/or Aasne Vigesaa?

    I've liked other books by Jennifer Crusie. I don't know if I would try another one because I really did not like this one. When it becomes a chore listen instead of a pleasure. Too many names too much too much confusion it wasn't fun.


    What was most disappointing about Jennifer Crusie’s story?

    The lack of a storyline.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator did fine but they can't read a storyline into a book if it isn't there


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Sure of,course the dog.I was glad that she rescued him that was a good beginning to the story. So yes Spot a.k.a. Steve was a bright spot.

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

    Story
    "Bummer...."

    I usually love Jennifer Cruise's work. However, this was just bad. Not only was it boring with a terribly repetitive storyline but the narrator killed what chance it may have had. I was so bored that I couldn't even finish listening to it. Instead I found one of my old favorites by Molly Harper. I know that Jennifer Cruise has lots of potential her story "Bet Me" was one of my favorites. Better luck next time Jennifer.

    "Absolutely great and SOOOOO funny"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I always liked Jennifer Cruise's stories but listening to this one narrated by Aasne Vegesaa was exceptionally funny. I laughed out loud so often. Even the sex scenes were hysterical. It was such lighthearted fun!


    What about Aasne Vigesaa’s performance did you like?

    Her delivery was so perfect


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I could barely put this down. I loved it.

    "Good escapist listening"
    What made the experience of listening to Faking It the most enjoyable?

    It was well written. The plot was clever. It was not silly like some books of this genre. It is not a heavy literary experience, but that is not what I wanted. It lightened my mood. Good escapist listening.


    What does Aasne Vigesaa bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She adds an additional dimension to the reading experience. I appreciate her talent.
