Publisher's Summary

Fleur is beautiful, unscrupulous, and has a large wardrobe of black designer suits. With the help of The Times announcements page, she gate-crashes the funerals and memorial services of the wealthy, preying on rich, vulnerable men. She charms her way into their lives and onto their platinum credit cards, takes what she can, and then moves swiftly on.
When Richard, a dull but wealthy businessman, meets Fleur at his wife's memorial service, he's bowled over. Gradually Fleur works her spell on Richard's family - transforming their lives while she moves in on their wealth. But she finds herself lingering longer than she meant to....

A little disappointed

I have to say that I gave up on this book a quarter of the way through. I wasn't a fan of the performance in general which I found to be a little stiff with no personality and there was an awful drawl to it which I found hard to listen to. I am a huge fan of Sophie Kinsella's work, but I'm not so keen so far on my first encounter with Madeleine Wickham. Maybe I will try it again at some point if I am stuck without something else to go to first.

OK story totally destroyed by bizarre, whackey narration.

The story wasn’t too bad & didn’t proceed in a predictable, told you so way. The narration was quite like nothing I’ve ever heard. Very, very odd. And inflections in all the wrong places. It was so bad I nearly stopped listening. I got used to it as the story unfolded & I wanted to read on to the end.

very enjoyable

Great lead character, full of insecurities and selfishness. didn't end up with her just desserts. dropped a star for the story because I felt it could have ended slightly better, but otherwise very enjoyable
