Great story - it was fun, funny, romantic, and entertaining. As usual, the dialog between Crusie's characters was fantastic. She always manages to make me laugh (out loud) while reading her books. Definitely one of my favourite authors these days!

This isn't my favourite book by Jennifer Crusie, but I did enjoy it. The crazy stalking ex-boyfriend was a little more intense than I usually like in my chick-lit, but the characters and fantastic dialog more than made up for it.

This book is too long. The characters are total norms with quirk makeup and really not very interesting in bed or out of it, whatever the claims of great sex are made, they aren't substantiated. Plus, the murderer wasn't all that obscures.

Hilarious! I enjoyed listening to the book on cd. The main character, Agnes is warm and just a little bit crazy. Combines good cooking, the mob, and a big time wedding. There are lots of twists and turns, but the characters are all so enjoyable.
