Emotionally numb from her divorce 18 months earlier, Nell Dysart is about to waken with a vengeance. When she takes a job as office manager for McKenna Investigations, she`s determined to reorganize, redecorate, and revamp the stuck-in-the-`50s surroundings, but she runs smack-dab into senior partner Gabe McKenna, the immovable object to her irresistible force. Gabe likes the dated ambiance just fine and doesn`t want a thing changed, but he soon learns that nothing in his life is going to stay the same now that Nell has arrived.Rough and gruff, but with a heart of gold, Gabe is just what Nell needs tojump-start her hormones. Nell`s formerly dull life is suddenly wildly active, for not only is she lusting after Gabe (and vice versa), but there`s also a case of embezzlement to uncover, a dog to steal, and bribery to investigate. And, oh yes, there are those very cold, very dead bodies in the freezer.Fast Women has well-rounded characters, an interesting mystery to resolve, and author Jennifer Crusie`s trademark humor. In addition, Crusie gives readers a little something extra in her exploration of the emotional stages of divorce, the viability of marriage, and the value of self-honesty--all of which add up to an excellent fictional tale layered with a thought-provoking look at contemporary culture. --Lois Faye Dyer

Jennifer Crusie is the USA Today and New York Times bestselling author of Tell Me Lies, Crazy For You, Welcome To Temptation, Fast Women, Faking It, and Bet Me.From AudioFile:
First a smile, then a grin, then when the laughter hits you, you're hooked on this fast-paced, hot-blooded murder mystery. After 18 months of divorce, Nell Dysart is a mess when she meets Gabe McKenna, a private investigator whose specialty is "relationships," and his partner/cousin, Reilly McKenna. Together they uncover murder, blackmail, embezzlement, and more. Sandra Burr keeps up with the fast-hitting dialogue and action and fleshes out each character, making the men "hot" and the women "sexy." If the circumstances are unbelievable, the romance is oh so wonderful, and Burr puts her all into the steamy scenes that get better and better as the book progresses.
