Review: Faking It by Jennifer Crusie
Posted May 8, by Holly in Reviews 3 Comments. Meet the Goodnights, a respectable family who have run a respectable art gallery for generations. There’s Gwen, the matriarch who sedates herself with double-crostics and double vodkas, Eve the oldest daughter who has a slight identity problem she has twoand Nadine, the granddaughter who’s ready to follow in the family footsteps as soon as she can find a set that isn’t leading off a cliff.
Holding everyone together is Matilda, the youngest daughter, who’s inherited the secret locked down in the basement of the Goodnight Gallery, the secret that she’s willing to do almost anything to keep, including break into a house in the dead of night to steal back her past. Meet the Dempseys, or at least meet Davy, a reformed con man who’s justbeen ripped off for a cool three million by his financial manager, who then gallantly turned it over to Clea Lewis, the most beautiful sociopath Davy ever slept with.

This if one of those novels I had to read more than once before I fell in love with it. The fakinv time I read it, I was coming off the high of Welcome to Temptation and had high expectations for how this one would turn out.
FAKING IT by Jennifer Crusie | Kirkus Reviews
I was disappointed, no two ways about it. And you know what? I enjoyed it even more the second time around. Then, I re-read it again. And loved it even more. By my 5th re-read, my original crjsie of this novel had drastically changed, and it has become one of my favorite Crusie novels. One of the things I think Ms. Crusie excels at is writing characters with personality and depth. Both are quirky and fun, but have hidden depths.
The plot is an interesting and engaging one, if a bit crusei the ridiculous side. Though I do have to say, no one does ridiculous as well as Jenny Crusie does.
As with all bh novels, the secondary characters are a complete riot and fully enrich the story. Nadine sighed and opened a cupboard, taking down a loaf of whole wheat. Nadine pushed the bakery bag toward him. It had a high golden crown, not lumpy at all. He shrugged and peeled the top off and took a bite. She dropped in two more pieces for Davy and then dug into the peanut butter, slathering it on her bread like spackle. This book is available from St.
You can buy it here or here in e-format. Everyone raves about her, but I can hardly ever even read a whole book.
I did enjoy Bet Me, but this particular book made my head spin and not in a good way. Crusie is trying crsie hard. Tomorrow is on http: It gets a bit crazy over there! Notify me of follow-up comments by email. Notify me of new posts by email. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
