Book: The Gatecrasher
Author: Madeline Wickham [Sophie Kinsella's pen name]
Reason for Reading: for fun
Review: Fleur has lofty financial goals and she'll do whatever it takes to increase her bank account. Her speciality is picking up grieving widows, taking them for thousands of pounds, and moving on to the next victim. However, when she meets Richard and his family, she finds herself enjoying his company and thinking about making her situation with him permanent.
Written by Sophie Kinsella (under a pen name) this book lacked the humor and wit of her other works. There was nothing redeeming about Fleur and she was difficult to root for as the heroine.
