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.

A chick book that a guy can enjoy

For some reason, I thought I found the book blurb interesting, and it had such good reviews. Blurbs of other Jennifer Crusie books on Audible really sound like "chick" books and I suppose this one is also - but I really enjoyed this one!! The quirky characters are entertaining, the mystery part is well done, and the sex / love-making scenes were often either hot or funny or both! (For example, the scene where she attempts to act out his fantasy in the bar is a hoot!) It was just a lot of fun to listen to! And, the narrator did a great job! And this is a guy writing this review! Crusie sounds like such a good writer that I might even try another one, even though the plots sound as if they're for gals.
