By Jennifer Crusie
It’s hard for me to review a book that I’ve listened to on Audio. But put this one down as fresh, fluffy, and funny, a style that Jennifer Crusie has perfected. Lots of lovable characters and even the bad guys were entertaining. The plot and setting were original. We have a family of art-dealers and artists with a family background involving forgery and fraud, but only in the nicest most blameless way. They join forces with Davy Dempsey of Welcome to Temptation which I read decades ago and don’t remember a thing about. Except I think that is the one that made Jennifer Crusie one of my go-to authors back in the day. Anyway they encounter romance and intrigue on the way to going straight and ending up in happy relationships and financial comfort by the rollicking climax (no pun intended.)
I hope there are lots more Crusie titles I haven’t read or haven’t read for decades and can re-read. she is the mistress of screwball comedy.
