5.0 out of 5 stars excellent & very witty, 5 Feb 2006
By A Customer
This review is from: Welcome to Temptation (Paperback)
Probably the best of all Jennifer Cruise's books. An attractive and witty central couple and amusing side characters.
Sophie Dempsey is the only 'normal' one in a family of likable and charming con artists. She is the 'mothering/nuturing' figure in the family, who really just wants to settle down in one place with a home and family. However, for the sake of her sister's hope of Hollywood, Sophie finds herself in Temptation, Ohio to make a come-back film for ageing former porn star Clea Whipple, who was born in Temptation and owns a farm there.
Enter Temptation's mayor, Phineas T Tucker, who's town council have just voted in an anti porn law and whose mother is trying to desperately marry him off to the too young Rachel Garvey of the "excellent legs".
Phin is the handsome, well-dressed epitany of every "glossy frat boy" who ever snubbed Sophie, and she's just the type of woman his father warned him about. So the scene is set for a witty battle of the sexes, plus one of the townsfolk is trying to bump Sophie off. Add Sophie's, con man brother, her controlling fiance, Phin's snobby, wealthy mother and his young daughter, Rachel Garvey and her parents and the sexy conniving Clea and her husband, plus a dead body and plenty of sex and you have an entertaining, amusing read. Enjoy!
