Having read and thoroughly enjoyed all the Sophie Kinsella novels, I decided to try the Madeleine Wickhams. So far I've read Cocktails for Three and The Gatecrasher. Although they are not as light in tone, they are enertaining and are quite fast reads. Her older books are harder to find in stores and online at the moment.

I must admit to having mixed feelings about Fleur. I can understand why she is so obsessed with money, given her background, and I can sympathize to an extent. Some of the men she had been associated with must have been difficult to live with, so she had no scruples about taking what she could. But I cannot understand why she isn't willing to embrace a live of love and simple pleasures with a good man and his family, all of whom truly appreciate her. She doesn't have to wear plaid trousers or learn to play golf.

On the positive side, Fleur is stylish, chic, sympathetic (to a point), and has a joie de vivre that she conveys to Richard Favour (a very aptly named character) and the rest of his family. The "sainted" Emily, it turns out, was a mean-spirited tyrant who denied her sister the trip of a lifetime, trod on her daughter's ego and forced her to marry a man who was truly unworthy (but whom Emily must have seen as a kindred spirit to herself), and hated her son's strawberry birthmark so much that she wanted him to wear an eyepatch to cover it. Richard never knew any of this; he would have been appalled if he had.

Negatively, Fleur is a user. She sympathizes with Phillipa but then ignores her when she is in real need of a friend. Her treatment of her daughter is abominable. The child is anorexic and a pot smoker. If Fleur had called her poppet one more time, I would have reached inside the book and slapped her. She is a young girl, not a doll. To think that Fleur cared so little that she had nowhere for Zara (named after Princess Margaret's daughter, I'm sure!) to go after her term ended!

But, like Fleur or not, she changed Richard and his family for the better. Zara, however, gets the credit for the change in young Anthony; I believe he changed her as well. It's amazing that she turned out as well as she did!

The ending was not what I had hoped, but, given Fleur's character, it rang true. I'd have liked an epilogue set a few years later, but it wasn't to be. However, I'm glad I enjoyed the book, and I do recommend it for a pleasant way to pass a quiet evening or two.

Madeleine Wickham, who also pens the Shopoholic series as Sophie Kinsella, is a real treat of a writer. She gets you involved in the story right away and fleshes out her characters quickly and in interesting ways. This is the fourth or fifth book I've read by this author, and I've enjoyed them all.

This is the story of Fleur Daxeny, a serial seductress who frequents the funerals of wealthy women and charms their grieving husbands. But this time Fleur actually likes the family she's glommed onto, and she begins to feel at home. When her daughter arrives "home" from boarding school, she too enjoys the life, but it wouldn't be much of a novel if things didn't happen to stir the pot!

Wickham's characters are immediately accessible. Fleur, the heroine, is charming and likable and resourceful, but she's also selfish and self-absorbed; Richard is a kind, loving man, but as he finds out in the course of the story, he should have been less admiring of his deceased wife and more involved in the family. The cast is fleshed out with Philippa, Richard's daughter, and her odious husband Lambert; Antony, the angst-y teenage son who falls for Fleur's daughter; and Gillian, the deceased's sister who's uncertain about her future with the family.

Wickham is an excellent writer and her stories are lots of fun. If you are considering reading this book, you definitely should.

It took me a little while to get into this story, but once I did I really enjoyed it. It is about a woman name Fleur who attends funerals attempting to find rich men to stay with for a while and eventually take some of their money and move on to the next. She finds a widowed man named Richard whose family had been in a sad, hurt routine by the silent hurt of the mother who had recently passed. Fleur takes the family and brings them all out of their shells and changing their dynamic for the better. There are a lot of unanswered questions and the ending is exactly what you'd expect, but it was a cute story.

So I really enjoyed this book, but I hated how it ended. Decietful Fleur never redeemed herself. Richard remained a duped shmuck. Nice family gets screwed. But I couldn't help liking it anyway.

This book had intriguing characters that seemed to be multi-dimensional and it kept my attention, but then it just seemed to end at the climax with very little resolution. I’m wondering if there is a sequel I don’t know about...

Wonderful story! It feels like one is right there with the characters. I recommend to anyone who enjoys analyzing human nature.

This is the first book I read by this author. She is a fantastic writer. This book is wonderful. It makes you laugh, it makes you cry, it makes you feel the emotions the characters are going through. I highly recommend this book, especially if toy need a change of things, something different from your normal reading list.
I really enjoyed this book I thought it was very entertaining. The only problem I had with this book was the ending. The ending was a bit upsetting, and I thought it could have been much different. I still enjoyed the book, and I'm looking into ordering another one of Madeline Wickham/ Sophie Kinsella books.
