Nell Dysart's in trouble. Her divorce is 18 months old, she's been sleepwalking through life, and the best job she can get is with a detective agency that specializes in relationship work. Determined to turn her life around, Nell flings herself into making McKenna Investigations a better place. On day one, she uncovers an embezzler. On day two, she turns up bribery. On day three, she has sex with the wrong man. On day four, she steals a dog. On day five, her boss tries to fire her. And fails miserably. Because even Gabe McKenna has to admit that no matter how much he hates the confusion she's brought into his life, Nell shares his passion for making things right. It's not long before they share another passion, one they can't ignore, even in the face of distractions like adultery, blackmail, arson, murder, and really bad business cards.… (mer)

Crusie expands her usual chicklit screwball romance here to include some mystery elements, but the whole thing remains pretty frothy.

When divorcee Nell Dysart takes a "temporary" job in the offices of McKenna Investigations, the last thing she's looking for is a new romance. So of course sparks fly between her and her boss, mostly because she wants to "fix" things he thinks don't need fixing.

Great fun, hot sex, and an occasional dead body on the plus side; a complicated set of family connections on the minus. Still an entertaining read. ( )

I did not find this book terribly enjoyable--not my type of book.
A bunch of women sit around a lot moaning about life, husbands, men in general.
The protagonist, Nell, is divorced and walking through her life until she gets a job running a detective agency (much against her boss's wishes--but she's hot and he's hot so it doesn't matter). Much arguing back and forth. A bit of investigation of a murder that stretches through a lot of years. Finished. Thank goodness for that. ( )

The Characters

Gabe
Nell

And a bunch of other folks.

The Story

This story was really interesting and really complicated. A who-done-it story laced with friendship, comedy and love.

The Random Thoughts

This story once again proves that I can not go wrong with a Jennifer Crusie book. But, now I’ve read all of the back catalogue and she needs to write me some new stuff.

This was set in a detective agency, where Nell goes to work for Riley and Gabe and helps solve a mystery involving a law firm run by Gabe's father's best friend. I really enjoyed the first half of the novel: Nell sorts out the chaos in the office and falls for Gabe, but then it just kept going for pages and chapters and pages more and the plot was more complicated than I really cared about and Nell kept nearly getting killed and people kept moving boxes and talking endlessly about china. I like Riley and Suze and I couldn't get a grip on Margie - how old was she even meant to be? What purpose did she serve? Fun over all. ( )

I really got wrapped up in this book thinking men were scum. The romance didn't get serious until half way into the story but the humor, character interaction and solving the crime kept me interested throughout. Nell gets a job at Gabe's detective agency and they are both alpha types constantly trying to take control.

Fast Women was not too bad, the main protagonists had some issues, but it was entertaining. I couldn't find the ebook for fast women so I sent it into 1dollarscan to scan it.

For Valerie Taylor
because she tells me when my scenes are boring,
my syntax is twisted, and my characters are jerks,
because she reminds me that I always think
my career is over in the middle of each book,
and because she writes truly wonderful stories
and then lets me read them first.
Keep dodging those trucks, honey.

Chapter One
The man behind the cluttered desk looked like the devil, and Nell Dysart figured that was par for her course since she'd been going to hell for a year and a half anyway.
