They met up in Clea's closet ~~ Davy's there to recover the money she had stolen from him and Tilda's there to recover one of her Scarlet paintings and the book takes off from there. There is Nadine, the granddaughter, who is trying to figure out what her career interest is. There is Gwennie, the matriach of the family who longs to escape the art gallery and soak up the sun at a distant beach, drinking fruity alcoholic drinks. There is Eve who has a distinct second personality ~~ Louise, who performs at her ex-husband's club four nights a week. There is Clea, the amoral beauty queen whose husbands have died under mysterious circumstances and left her broke. On her third victim, she tries to snare him. Mason, the third husband-to-be, is also chasing after Gwennie ~~ and on and on. This book is a wonderful read ~~ light and funny and entertaining! I wouldn't have missed this book for the world!
Crusie is a fun writer that knows how to keep the reader's attention. This book is a sure bet!
Faking It is the best of Jennifer Crusie's books so far. It has all the stuff Crusie fans love--lots humor, good sex, food, art, snappy dialogue, likable characters & good friendships. But it also has something that we've seen Crusie move toward in her latest two novels--a strong plot. This book would make an excellent movie. There are so many twists and turns in the plot that I was constantly engaged and could never get a step ahead of the story. Loved it!
Enter Davy Dempsey, con man extraordinaire, who wants the money that former lover, Clea Lewis, stole from him. As Davy rents an apartment from Gwen, Tilda's mother, he and Tilda hit it off from their first encounter in a closet. Tilda is at the home of Mason, a friend of her deceased father's, to locate a painting she forged years ago. And Davy is there looking for his money that Mason's squeeze, Clea, snatched from him.
Sounds zany-it only gets better with Tilda's sister, Eve, or "Louise", her alter-ego, that sleeps with Davy's fellow con-man and thief, Simon. And there is Ford a "hit man" who is after Davy upon orders of Clea. But Ford seems interested in Gwen, even though her teen-aged granddaughter, Nadine,discovered that he was under contract to take Davy out.
Ms. Crusie's latest is another in a long line of fabulous reads filled with quirky relationships amidst a roller coaster ride of plot twists and turns and spicy bedroom scenes. This one is definitely not to be missed.
