Lists with This Book. Sophie Kinsella brings more charm, more wit, more depth and more laughs to her stories. Everything that Madeleine Wickham seems to lack. This is madeleeine fourth Wickham book and what a stupid book!
What a distasteful protagonist! I honestly don’t think I could’ve disliked a character more than Fleur. I 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 Sophie Kinsella brings more charm, more wit, more depth and more laughs to her stories.
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.
What 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.
Siignora have her thirteen year old daughter Zara possess more 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 as And 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 qualities and things that were kept hidden from him when she was alive, and then he just simply Fleur’s final request of not asking any questions 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 stupid? Very frustrating story, and even more 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 better.

I think Wickham should stick to writing in Kinsella’s style. View all 10 comments. Dec 13, Sophie Narey Bookreview- aholic rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Madeleine Wickham This 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 ro Published: 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 quite 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. Nov 26, Lulu rated it it was ok.

To view it, click here. This is disappointing, especially coming from the author who gave us the Shopaholic series. The premise is interesting enough: But the characters aren’t fully developed and I had a hard time finding any redeeming quality in the main character that justified a whole family falling in love with her and ultimately, too easily forgiving the way she has used them.
From what I read, all This is disappointing, especially coming from the author who gave us the Shopaholic series. From what I read, all she has is apparently ‘charm,’ and surely that’s not enough, not even in the world of fiction. She thinks too many mean things of others and is inconsiderate; Madeleibe sometimes wondered if Wickham simply widkham to present the more positive side of her.
The ending is abrupt too; she is about to leave her latest conquest to find the next widower and her change of mind is just not believable enough.
It’s a pity, because the book is actually full of characters that are quite fascinating and I might’ve been more hooked if I had had more thorough information about each of them.
The ending is of course pleasing, but not satisfying at all because Wickham fails to make us believe that it is possible. Dec 28, Barbara rated it it was ok. I picked this up so that I could have a “fluffy book” to read over the holidays, one that I could just pick up and read without doing much thinking.
It fit the bill. However I found it eignora very slow — at one point, I picked it up and was surprised to find that I was half-way through, despite the plot not having picked up much at all. I think the author was trying to do too many things at once, lay down too much character development and subplots — and not wickhm succinctly, frankly! I felt a little letdown by the ending, I was sure it was going to go differently — but it was not predictable at least!
As I finished the book, I thought it would be nice to see a sequel with Zara the daughterbut with more of a whirlwind-comic effect. Sep 06, Rachel rated it really liked it Shelves: What pleased me even more was that Madeleine Wickham takes a darker, deeper look into her characters than her Sophie Kinsella books offer.
There is hilarious comedy, but there is also deep sorrow within this book. Fleur Daxeny picks up rich men at isgnora wife’s funeral. She finds Richard Favour, and the story takes off from there. What could be a light-hearted and shallow story is actually quite deep, I was very pleased to find out that Madeleine Wickham was Sophie Kinsella, as I loved her books. What could be a light-hearted and shallow story is actually quite deep, particularly regarding why Fleur is the madelrine she is.
Wickham delves into Fleur’s psyche, as well as Richard’s odd marriage with his now diseased wife. The book moved me, even as Fleur grew more and more outrageous as the story continued.
Da Madeleine Wickham a Sophie Kinsella: una metamorfosi di stile vincente
Richard’s obnoxious funedali insulting son-in-law added more emotion to the book mostly angry emotions from myself! My only hang-up would be the ending, as it seemed a bit rushed and even a little fake. I had too many unanswered questions. Apart from that, I was moved by the novel’s look at loss, and how far we will go to not be deserted. Feb 18, Claire Book Blog Bird rated it really liked it. The story rolled along quickly and kept me interested, but it was the characters I really liked.
There was a really good mix of nice people and arseholes. Nov 09, Susan rated it it was ok Shelves: True rating would be 1. Although I like them, I’m not the biggest fan of the Shopaholic series. But I always really love Kinsella’s other work.
