Publisher's Summary

Sophie Dempsey wants to help her sister film a video and then get out of Temptation, Ohio. Mayor Phin Tucker wants to play pool with the police chief and keep things peaceful. But when Sophie and Phin meet, they both get more than they want. Gossip, blackmail, adultery, murder, vehicular abuse of a corpse, and slightly perverse but excellent sex: all hell breaks loose in Temptation as Sophie and Phin fall deeper and deeper in trouble, and in love.

Crusie at the top of her game

This is one of my favorite novels and narrator Aasne Vigesaa simply nails it. It's funny and wise, and sexy as all get out. The large cast of weirdly charming and quirky Temptation residents is not to be missed. I adore the sweetly and craftily drawn romance between ultimate outsider Sophie and blue-blooded town mayor Phinn. This is book with real heart and soul and I can't recommend it enough.

Well Done!

The only thing about a listening to a great book that can be disappointing, is trying to find another great book to follow it up. My wife and I had just listened to "Pleasure To The Max" by Cami Dalton and loved it. Sexy, funny and intriguing. How do you follow up a great listen like that? You get "Welcome To Temptation". Great characters, Great story. Constant laughing throughout.

Any complaints? Just two small ones. At first the narrator seems to be speaking too fast. I felt like your typical male trying to follow a conversation between three women at full speed. It took me a few chapters to feel comfortable with it. So either I got got used to her delivery, or she slowed down. Second, the sex was 'Just ok', not steamy. But everything else was so good, that that hardly mattered in the end.

We'll definitely be purchasing a few of her other books.

Fab

I love it. Great book. Well read. Funny (I did laugh out loud!), sweet & fast paced. A great hero who is believable (no multiple organisms here thank goodness). Worth every penny!

One of my all time favourites

This story is one of my keepers - sparkling, witty and often hilarious dialogue that reminds me of a modern take on on old katherine hepburn films. the storyline and d characters build so that you become almost guiltily engrossed, and dont want it to end. an almost perfectly executed romance with enough plot lines to keep it entertaining and not simplistic. Narrator did pretty well, except unfortunately with male and female leads, which is a bit odd as she did really well with all other characters. the leads were delivered in almost flat monotone and with strangely less differentiation between them. didnt destroy it, but was dissapointing.
