Publisher's Summary

Madeleine Wickham is Sophie Kinsella, and is just as delicious as her internationally best-selling Shopaholic series. Madeleine Wickham's bitingly funny and edgy style keeps fans coming back for more. So hold onto your haute couture hats, as you dive into the fantastic world of Wickham!
Everything's coming up roses for Fleur Daxeny, as she goes through more rich men than she does designer hats....if that's humanly possible. Beautiful, charming, and utterly irresistible, her success at crashing funerals to find wealthy men is remarkable. But behind Fleur's Harvey Nichols wardrobe, is a woman with a mysterious past. Fleur wastes no time in seducing her latest conquest, the handsome and rich widower Richard Favour, and she swoops into his life like a designer-clad tornado. His children are caught up in a whirlwind as their father's new girlfriend descends on the family estate leaving chaos and excitement in her perfume-scented wake. Soon, more than one family member is suspicious of Fleur's true intentions. Fleur is not one to wear her heart on her Chanel sleeves, but she soon finds herself embracing Richard and his lovable family.
But just as Fleur contemplates jumping off the gold-digger train for good and enjoying the ride of true love, a long-buried secret from her past threatens to destroy her new family. Fleur is thrown into a race against time to prove herself to Richard before it's too late.
Can she trust her heart or will she cut ties and run away as fast as her Prada pumps can take her? Take a wild and marvelous ride with The Gatecrasher, whose clever, chic, and sassy style will leave you desperately wanting more wonderful Wickham!

The cover is deceiving

Don't go by the cover on this one. It's much more serious than lead to believe. The ending is unexpected but in a good way.

Really tried to like this book but couldn't

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I didn't like any of the characters in this sad book about a woman who has no values aside from taking money from men who are grieving. Fleur doesn't care who she hurts in her efforts to get rich. She's a user and takes her neglected daughter on this horrible ride. I couldn't finish the book as I continued to dread what would happen to each of the unfortunate characters.

What could Madeleine Wickham have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

If there had been a central character I could have felt connected to or even liked it would have made this book better.

What about Katherine Kellgren’s performance did you like?

She's fine. No problems with the performance.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

It's well written. I usually love Sophie Kinsella's books. This was depressing and made me sad and anxious for all the characters.
