The Secret Is Out! Madeleine Wickham is Sophie Kinsella, and The Gatecrasher is just as delicious as her internationally bestselling Shopaholic series. Madeleine Wickham's bitingly funny and edgy style keeps fans coming back for more. So hold onto your haute couture hats, as you dive into the fantastic world of Wickham! Everything's coming up roses for Fleur Daxeny, as she goes through more rich men than she does designer hats....if that's humanly possible. Beautiful, charming, and utterly irresistible, her success at crashing funerals to find wealthy men is remarkable. But behind Fleur's Harvey Nichols wardrobe, is a woman with a mysterious past. Fleur wastes no time in seducing her latest conquest, the handsome and rich widower Richard Favour, and she swoops into his life like a designer-clad tornado. His children are caught up in a whirlwind as their father's new girlfriend descends on the family estate leaving chaos and excitement in her perfume-scented wake. Soon, more than one family member is suspicious of Fleur's true intentions. Fleur is not one to wear her heart on her Chanel sleeves, but she soon finds herself embracing Richard and his lovable family. But just as Fleur contemplates jumping off the gold-digger train for good and enjoying the ride of true love, a long-buried secret from her past threatens to destroy her new family. Fleur is thrown into a race against time to prove herself to Richard before it's too late. Can she trust her heart or will she cut ties and run away as fast as her Prada pumps can take her? Take a wild and marvelous ride with The Gatecrasher, whose clever, chic, and sassy style will leave you desperately wanting more wonderful Wickham!

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 CallMeLou | 2/14/2014

    " Eh, it was ok. I didn't agree with the main character's behavior so that made it hard for me to get into. I like her writing better as Sophie Kinsella. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karlie | 2/2/2014

    " This book was fun to read at times with a bit of a mystery that kept me guessing, but I didn't like it as much as I thought I would. I think I could have used some more character development. It was a little difficult to like the main character at times because she is so flawed. Also, several f-words throughout the book and more sexual references than I would care for. Ending was okay. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Penny Little | 2/1/2014

    " Better than 'A desirable residence' but still not quite 3 stars. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kathee | 1/19/2014

    " This book is so bad, I refuse to finish it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christina Graves | 1/17/2014

    " Harder to get into than her other books "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dana | 1/1/2014

    " It wasn't a bad book, it was light, but some aspects of the plot and the main character's actions just seemed a little off and never really got resolved. But I did find it hard to put down and read it fairly quickly. The end was fine, but kind of quick. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Katie Macgregor | 12/23/2013

    " Couldnt get into it , too predictable "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel Jacobs | 12/22/2013

    " A good easy read for a vacation. The book is typical British chick lit, but for this anglophile it was perfect. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pat | 11/11/2013

    " Book about a funeral crasher - looking for rich widowers - can she keep this business as usual or does she find herself falling into a different environment and will anything from her past come up & ruin things for her. Well you'll have to read to tell. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathryn Mullin | 10/20/2013

    " Didn't like as much as the Sophie Kinsella books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eleanor | 10/3/2013

    " Total and complete fluff! It was perfect for reading on the beach in Florida. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chari | 9/2/2013

    " Didn't think I'd make it through it. Usually love Madeline Wickham/Sophie Kinsella. This was much more fluff than usual. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robyn Mclafferty | 9/2/2013

    " A good read. Not quite up to par with her novels written as Sophie Kinsella, but entertaining nonetheless. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Petra Bobovec szabó | 8/9/2013

    " a good read though the gatecrasher character could have been more thoroughly depicted....one does not have the feeling that her personality has changed nor that she has developed any feelings toward her victim in the end "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cindy | 8/4/2013

    " This was a car book kinda read for me. It was pretty good but not a lot of substance to it and just a bit too much Disney like ending. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 casey | 7/26/2013

    " This book was pretty good. Not like the other books by this author. I didn't like the main character though, I thought it would change as the book went on but no such luck. Not a bad book, just not sure if any of my friends would like it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lily | 5/3/2013

    " I really liked this book. I found Fluer's plans shocking and enjoyed reading every chapter to find out what happens next. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristin | 4/9/2013

    " This is not this authors finest. The books plot was pretty transparent about halfway through. This could have been a great book but it never made it there. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mmckinnie | 3/13/2013

    " Easy, silly, chick lit! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ana | 11/22/2012

    " Was not impressed. I picked it up because I was in need of a light hearted book...wasn't much to it at all. If you're looking for a few girlie laughs...don't waste your time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robert | 9/28/2012

    " light-hearted book that Karen bought. Main character crashes funeral in search of rich widowers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janine | 2/12/2012

    " just a fun book, nothin too deep:) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim Loewen | 2/10/2012

    " A funny easy read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 5/14/2011

    " Enjoyed this one by Sophie Kinsella (this is her real name!)...pretty good and entertaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nik | 5/1/2011

    " not bad...i would rather borrowed it from the local library rather that spending money on this "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy | 4/29/2011

    " While this was not as witty as the shopaholic books, it was a good read. If you're looking for something that you don't have to think about and just enjoy, you'll like this. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Megan | 4/27/2011

    " I really liked this book until the ending! I found it to be rather inconclusive. I suppose the idea is to make your own assumptions but I personally prefer more a more conclusive ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sasha | 4/21/2011

    " Sometimes it just shocks me how good of a writer Wickham can be. Gatecrasher is witty, funny, and the plotline just pulls you along. A great "by the pool" read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sharlyn | 4/20/2011

    " The language was horrible. Otherwise I would have given it another star. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Courtney | 3/13/2011

    " I somewhat enjoyed this, but I couldn't figure out if Fleur was good or evil - which I thought was the point. But yet again - another completely random non-ending. Sigh. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caz | 3/3/2011

    " A ok book not the best of endings though! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christine | 3/2/2011

    " Light... very light... but I enjoyed the easy ride! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kathy | 2/22/2011

    " In all fairness I didn't finish this book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Emily | 2/15/2011

    " The main character's a BITCH! There should be negative stars for this book... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Karen | 2/12/2011

    " This book is slow and dull. Not worth spending the time to read. "
