characters The Gatecrasher

Fleur Daxeny is bloedmooi en levensgevaarlijk Ze draagt altijd zwarte kleding en verslijt meer mannen dan schoenen In de krant zoekt ze naar rouwadvertenties waarna ze op begrafenissen van wildvreemden verschijnt op ja. Sophie Kinsella brings charm wit depth and laughs to her stories Everything that Madeleine Wickham seems to lackThis is my fourth Wickham book and what a stupid book What a distasteful protagonist I honestly don t think I could ve disliked a character than FleurI started this book with the hopes that it would be an interesting read albeit light The premise of this book the plot seemed very interesting original even A lady who crashes funerals in search for wealthy vulnerable men to prey on in order to climb up the social ladder only to choose the wrong man to prey on and end up getting too close to the family for her own consciousness s good Great story rightWRONGWhat a waste of my time It dragged on and on and on for the very longest time only to have Fleur get worse and worse in character instead of better To have her thirteen year old daughter Zara possess sense and wisdom than her It s not until the last TWO pages that Fleur awakens from her selfish obnoxious awful money focused daze and decides to do something with her life and for her daughter s sake Oh my God are you serious Madeleine Wickham made us hate this character the whole way through and wouldn t even wrap up the story properly and just left us with two final pages of utter nonsense aswhat ClosureAnd is Richard really that much of an idiot Yes sure he s the nicest man on the planet but since when is nice synonymous with stupid He spent the entire book looking for clues on who his dead wife really was and wondering about all the ualities and things that were kept hidden from him when she was alive and then he just simplyacceptsFleur s final reuest of not asking any uestions and keeping all the secrets and mysteries and even gets emotional that she was back and is agreeing to staying with him but not marrying him I mean I repeat is this man stupidVery frustrating story and even frustrating characters They weren t well rounded at all they did not develop well at all the main characters pretty much stayed completely the same throughout the book and only the secondary characters seemed to change to the betterI think Wickham should stick to writing in Kinsella s style

Cht naar rijke argeloze weduwnaars en hun platina creditcards Fleurs laatste verovering is Richard Favour een saaie maar welgestelde zakenman Als een zonnestraal dringt ze zijn leven binnen Maar wanneer Fleur eindelijk. Published 10072007Author Madeleine WickhamThis book was light hearted fun sweet and had a little bit of mystery in it Madeleine Wickham Sophie Kinsella doesn t disappoint with this book In my opinion it is one of the best written by Sophie Kinsella The was the first one of the Madeleine Wickham books that I read as soon as I finsihed it I purchased the rest of the books and couldn t wait to read them It is a must read for anyone who loves Sophie Kinsella books and anyone who loves romantic and rom com books This was one of them kind of books where you just cannot put it down I had many sleepless nights due to being so hooked on to the novel Fleur the main character has made her money and life out of crashing peoples funerals in order to work her way into the widows life to get them to spend all their money on her I uite liked the character of Fleur I thought that she was very intriguing as to how she managed to worm her way into these mens lives The characters that are featured in the novel are all very well described and the surroundingssetting is painted perfectly by the author so that when you close your eyes you can actually see it in your eyes and imagine everything that is happening

De kans krijgt in Richards papieren te snuffelen blijkt al snel dat zij niet de enige is die op zijn geld uit is Moet Fleur op haar instinct vertrouwen of zo hard weglopen als haar zwarte Prada pumps haar kunnen drage. Fleur has made a career out of crashing funerals and memorial services so that she can work her way into recently widower s lives She earns the widower s trust then takes them for all she can and moves on But when she meets Richard Favour things start to change She finds herself feeling comfortable and fitting in with his family When her daughter comes to visit and fits in too Fleur realizes she is going to have some decisions to make But is Fleur ready to give up the high life and to settle into the suburbs With her daughter involved and asking uestions about her past Fleur s past and being ready for a change Fleur has to consider and decide what she can do and what she has to do Parts of the book I really enjoyed and other parts were just ok I really like most of the characters in this book with 5 kind of main characters and 3 important supporting characters The characters were given a decent background and we were given a view of the past of a few of them I wanted a bit on the character development side though from some of them Also I think the background could have been worked into the story better you would be going along on the story and suddenly there would be a chapter set in the past and it would give you insight on why a character was the way they were now Once we were given the background the subject was dropped though and story picked right back up it was a little confusing I kind of wonder if somewhere Wickham has some long elaborate back stories for all of these characters and she wanted to work some of it in but couldn t work in all that she wanted I found this development of characters and how they were developed to a different degrees nice in some scenes but annoying in other parts At times I needed on some of the supporting characters which would have helped with some of the supporting characters relationship with the main characters Overall I enjoyed the book and feel like I learned something about character development from it The book didn t turn me off Wickham as a writer as it seems to some people which is good Glad I read it

    This is disappointing especially coming from the author who gave us the Shopaholic series The premise is interesting enough a woman who lives off widowers hopping from one funeral to another with a little help from a couple of gay friends But the characters aren't fully developed and I had a hard time finding any redeeming uality in the main character that justified a whole family falling in love with her and

    Although I like them I'm not the biggest fan of the Shopaholic series But I always really love Kinsella's other work This is the first of her's I've read where she was writing as Madeleine Wickham and I hope it's not the last When I started reading this I knew I was going to love it but I figured as it was chick lit it would be pretty predictable I was wrong This book actually surprised me I thought I had the

    True rating would be 15 stars somewhere between didn't like it and it was OK When Madeleine Wickham morphed into Sophie Kinsella apparently she acuired the ability to create characters with a few redeeming ualities to offset their character flaws ie compulsive shopping
