by Sophie Kinsella aka Madeleine Wickham
Fleur Daxeny is beautiful, unscrupulous and has a large wardrobe of black designer suits. With the help of the Times announcements page she gatecrashes the funerals and memorial services of the wealthy, preying on rich, vulnerable men. She charms her way into their lives and onto platinum credit cards, takes what she can and moves swiftly on.
When Richard Favour, 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 reserved and stilted family - transforming their lives while she moves in on their wealth. She finds herself lingering longer than she meant to, becoming involved in the family - but as Fleur rifles though Richard's files, it becomes clear that she is not the only one after his money.
I really enjoyed this book. What's great about it is that it is easy to read. I didn't like Fleur that much in the book but towards the end i did - it's a fast moving plot, with only 347 pages, so a quick easy read.
