Nell Dysart has been emotionally frozen since her marriage abruptly ended a year and a half ago. Now, with her money running low and her self esteem non-existent, Nell is in desperate need of a job. She doesn't know what to expect when she walks through the door at McKenna Investigations, but she's pretty sure Gabriel McKenna was not one of the terrors she imagined, Dark, surly and subtly sexy, Gabe is a man who could be big trouble for Nell. That's why she is resolved to organize his office and nothing more.
Gabe McKenna is in a rut. Somehow, Gabe has let loyalty and tradition turn into petrification. Despite being divorced for over a decade, he's still sleeping with his ex-wife - not because he's in love with her, but because she's convenient. One short interview with Nell Dysart and he's convinced she's going to drive him crazy. Still, her ex-brother-in-law is one of his biggest clients, so Gabe's going to have to hire Nell. He finds out pretty quickly that she's efficient, hard-working, stubborn and too damn sexy for his peace of mind.
Nell and Gabe are both used to calling the shots and pretty soon they're banging heads over everything from business cards to dog-napping. When a current case of embezzling leads back to an old disappearance, the pair will have to get along to figure things out - and to avoid winding up dead.
One of the best things about Jennifer Crusie novels is that you usually learn something interesting while you're enjoying a really good story about characters worth knowing. In this case, you learn about collectible pottery and china. Of course, it's Ms. Crusie's superb writing that makes Fast Women so worth reading. There's great chemistry between Nell and Gabe, well-developed secondary characters with their own issues and interests, an absorbing mystery and a hot romance. This is a satisfying read, perfect for any time you want something fun.
The book starts out funny but it takes a long time to get the momentum going, so much so that I almost didn't finish it - but I'm glad I did. There were times when I was smiling or laughing - enough so that my husband asked what was so funny. I think paring the book down would've helped to keep my interest level up but the last few chapters definitely drew you in and sped by much faster than most of the book.
It's a good or ok read, not a great one.
