Sophie Dempsey and her sister Amy are trying for their big break. Sophie is content with their small wedding-video business, but Amy has stars in her eyes. She wants to hit the big time. So it's off to the town of Temptation, Ohio, population you-don't-wanna-know, to help highstrung actress Clea Whipple make her big comeback. Problem # 1: the car accident. Problem # 2: Clea is more famous for porn than anything else. Problem # 3: the car accident was with the town's most fervent conservatives. The problems will just keep coming, but what no one knows is that the Dempseys have a system, they will do anything for each other, and they always get what they want.
This book was just plain fun. The plot twists are unexpected and amusing. The characters are great, my favorite was Dillie, the ten-year-old con artist. I think that Crusie has also captured the emotional atmosphere of a small town perfectly - her descriptions of the meetings of the town council made me laugh out loud. And the ending is perfect. What more could you want? Four stars (a B+ in the new system).
