Publisher Description

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. . . .

In my top ten

FAST WOMEN is one of my favorite books. I have read it several times. Jennifer Crusie’s characters are strong and her dialogue is witty and fast paced. I cannot recommend this book enough!!!

Excellent book!

This book is so funny and charming, it will want you screaming for a sequel. I laughed so much when I read this book (there are a couple of sad parts) but you will be in love with this author if you've never read anything by her before. Buy this book! It's a total riot!
