Jennifer Crusie : Faking It : Book Review
Tilda, a muralist, is the main source of support for her wacky family, who it seems, has a penchant for art forgery. Every so often, the cook would serve a dessert called “Air and Dirt. Lists with This Book. Even the “bad guys” were mostly likable, or at least humorous. So this was such a damn freaky book!
Phin was a jerkwad, Vrusie was a wimp, and Amy was a brat. Seriously I guess all the characters in here have issues. Smart man this one! Gwen has ceusie her daughters on a steady diet of girl singers like Pippy Shannon and the Paris Sisters for heaven’s sake.
Art and money are at the centre of the tale, as is jt. My fave of hers is Light in Shadowif My favorite Crusie, who is my favorite contemporary romance writer, smart and witty. She graduated from high school in and earned her bachelor’s degree from Bowling Green State University in Art Education in Sherri rated it did not like it Mar 03, I do like that the most physically attractive woman in the book is not the female protagonist.

Mostly pretty good in terms of transfer-typos, but it is missing an italicization of one critical line; I don’t know if this can be fixed.
Faking It was the first book I ever read by Jennifer Crusie and is the reason I went to read every other book she has ever written. While they recover several other forged paintings, Tilda and Davy solve the murder of a wealthy art patron, resolve various family issues, care for a wily dachshund named Steve, and help her mother, sister, and niece all find true love.

Faking It (Dempseys, #2) by Jennifer Crusie
Tilda was a great heroine, and I loved every member of her delightfully dysfunctional family. Davy wants the money back, but more than that he’ll do anything to keep Clea from winning, including break into her house in the dead of night to steal back his future. Well let me say The book is genuinely funny, with some of the best dialog and internal musings I’ve ever read. I didn’t much care for Davy in the first book, but he turns out beyond swoon-worthy here–and without major revision of his character from the first, either.
