Title: Fast Women
Author: Jennifer Crusie
Genre: Chick Lit
Summary: After being dumped by her husband, Nell Dysart uses her skills as an office manager to improve a dective agency. Only the owner doesn't want anything changed.
What was Good: Witty characters, interesting subplots.
What wasn't: The characters just moved too fast. Fell in love too fast, solved problems too fast. The internal action and dialogue didn't always make the pace seem believable.
The Take-Away: Ms Crusie's characters keep me coming back. I enjoyed reading it, even if it wasn't a timeless piece.
Recommendation: Buy it for a vacation reading and discuss it with your book group.
