The Gatecrasher – Madeleine Wickham

 

Brief Synopsis: Fleur is a woman with a mission to get rich. She achieves this by attending swanky funerals and seducing the bereaved, and wealthy, widower. However, when Fleur entices Richard into her web, she finds that she doesn’t want to kick him out quite as readily as normal.

 Good Points: The plot is great – unusual and something I’ve never read about before.

Bad Points: It’s almost like this is a first draft of what could be a brilliant story – the characters and writing aren’t rich enough. Could do better.

Good For: An easy read

Overall: 2.5/5
