Fast Women

by Jennifer Crusie

St. Martin's Press | November 20, 2012 | Trade Paperback

Fast Women is rated 3 out of 5 by 4.

When a down-on-her-luck divorcée meets a determined-to-dominate detective, they find out that falling in love can be murder. . . .

Nell Dysart’s in trouble. Weighed down by an inexplicable divorce and a loss of appetite for everything, Nell is sleepwalking through life until her best friend finagles a job for her with a shabby little detective agency that has lots of potential and a boss who looks easy to manage.

Gabe McKenna isn’t doing too well, either. His detective agency is wasting time on a blackmail case, his partner has decided he hates watching cheating spouses for money, and his ex-wife has just dumped him . . . again. The only thing that’s going his way is that his new secretary looks efficient, boring, and biddable.

But looks can be deceiving, and soon Nell and Gabe are squaring off over embezzlement, business cards, vandalism, dognapping, blackmail, Chinese food, unprofessional sex, and really ugly office furniture, all of which turn out to be the least of their problems. Because soon, there are murders. And shortly after that, Nell and Gabe start falling in love. . . .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW Jennifer! Fast Women is a great book to read when you're by yourself, not only will you not want to put it down to acknowledge anyone's presence, but all the laughing out loud will make you glad no one is there to wonder about your well being. These are all such great and loveable characters that I am keeping this book on my shelf for a second read down the road.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A really bad book This was one of the worst books I have ever read. It is typically sexual with little plot and a nothing ending. I think that the author should find another profession.
