Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Hard to resist...[a] roller-coaster ride...perfect escapist fare!"

--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

LOVE AND DECEPTION HAVE A LOT IN COMMON.

Meet the Goodnights, a respectable family who run a respectable art gallery-and have for generations. There's Gwen, the matriarch who likes to escape reality, Eve the oldest daughter who has a slight identity problem (she has two), Nadine, the granddaughter who's ready to follow in the family footsteps as soon as she can find a set that isn't leading off a cliff. And lastly, Matilda, the youngest daughter, has inherited the secret locked down in the basement of the Goodnight Gallery, the secret she's willing to do almost anything to keep, even break into a house in the dead of night to steal back her past.

THE RISKS ARE INTOXICATING.

Meet the Dempseys, or at least meet Davy, a reformed con man who's just been ripped off for a cool three million by his financial manager, who then gallantly turned it over to Clea Lewis, the most beautiful sociopath Davy ever slept with. 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.

AND IF YOU'RE REALLY GOOD AT THEM, THEY BOTH PAY OFF.

One collision in a closet later, Tilda and Davy reluctantly join forces to combat Clea, suspicious art collectors, a disgruntled heir, and an exasperated hitman, all the while coping with a mutant dachshund, a juke box stuck in the sixties, questionable sex, and the growing realization that they can't turn their backs on the people they were meant to be...or the people they were born to love.

"Art, orgasms, identities, affection. If it can be faked, the characters in Crusie's snappy new novel will do it...Crusie has a gift for concocting nutty scenarios and witty one-liners...genuine laughs."

--People

"Bestseller Crusie takes readers on another smooth ride in her latest romantic caper...the whole Goodnight clan and supporting cast are enormously engaging."

--Publishers Weekly

Andrea Cumbo, November 6, 2008 (view all comments by Andrea Cumbo)
A great book for those who wish to disappear into a rather predictably plotted but original romance that involves art forgery, closets, and a lot of fun. The main character, Tilda, is a woman that many of us could look up to - independent but insecure, wise and witty. A very engaging read.
