caleb is a con artist, the latest leader of a family of con artists and he is on the lookout for a new one night wife. finley is the perfect person to beguile into the position because she's naive and doesn't ask too many pesky questions. especially once caleb helps her get her charitable foundation out of the red and actually helping people.
the pace and narrative voice are somewhat breakneck, it almost feels like it belongs to a howard hawks film. finley and caleb are well-matched, even if he spends a lot of time lying to her. when he does finally admit the truth, she plays him perfectly in revenge. and yet, comes to realize that he's somewhat necessary to her happiness. and that maybe she wants to be part of the con. the sherwood name is no coincidence, because caleb and his family essentially act like a modern-day robin hood. aiming to save the planet by bilking billionaires of their tax-evaded income.
