Welcome to Temptation by Jennifer Crusie

I very much enjoyed Agnes and the Hitman earlier this year, so I thought I would give another of Crusie's novels a try.

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. If you're interested in a small-town romance with big-city secrets and a lot of laughs, give it a try. Four stars.
