Format: Paperback
I only recently started reading Louise Bagshawe. I know that she has written for many years but have not read any of her earlier books. The most recent book I read was named Desire and had a suspiciously similar cover to this one. I enjoyed the last one and felt that it was chick lit with an element of `thriller' thrown in for good measure. I felt that this book was firmly rooted back to the solely chick lit genre which is not necessarily a bad thing.

The first thing that struck me in the first half of the book was how much I disliked the main character Kate Fox. As a main character I almost expect to instantly like them and this was not the case with this book. Although I didn't warm to her the story was easy to absorb yourself in. Kate is a typical money-grabbing woman. The only difference with her to other stereo-typical gold-diggers was that she seemed to be a very independent and intelligent woman. It kind of made me wonder why she was choosing this path for her life.

Sure enough it becomes apparent that this life is not for her but to extract herself from it means a long and dirty fight with her husband Marcus Broder. Broder was a despicable character that had wealth and power and absolutely zero respect for women. The second half of the book we see Kate struggle with her decisions and then a major event impacts her life in a way that she is unsure how to deal with.

This particular event is one that I didn't see coming so adds to the element of surprise which is a good thing. I can't say that this book throws up anything particularly new in this genre (which is very hard to do anyway) but Bagshawe has created characters that you find easy to get to know which is always a plus for me.

I'm a third of the way through this book and I'm already irritated by it. Bagshawe shows again her penchant for not proof reading her books (as in Glamour, where the book mentioned using Ebay years before it was invented). Among the multiple errors in this book are: on p100 Marcus Broder clearly states that Kate earns 40,000 a year at Cutie, yet after they divorce on p145 Emily makes it clear that "even though it's not a big glossy like [Kate was] used to" they can still pay her 40,000 dollars. Kate is shown to be disappointed and it is said that "Forty thousand is a pay cut, even from what she was getting at Cutie". This is a best selling novel with a wide distribution, how can they ignore such glaring errors in consistancy? It's stupid and unrealistic. We then have such gems as "she was in the Gap and Emporio Armani, buying all the basics of a work wardrobe" (p 147). This is after she divorces her rich guy and is plumbing the depths of poverty by the way. So apparently Emporio Armani, where jackets start at 600 pounds, and GAP, our trusty high street retailer, are now the same thing, and "basic" at that. I think Louise Bagshawe needs to stop spending her paycheck on Kiehl's, and start spending it on a decent researcher who can tell her what brands are up to date and how much they cost, not to mention an editor who actually edits out glaring errors.

Slapdash effort that reads like it's written by a lightweight who's in a hurry to be doing something else.
Can't believe this got published.

By Leah on 20 April 2011
Format: Paperback
Kate Fox is a gold-digger. She doesn't want to have a career, she doesn't want to earn her own money, Kate wants to marry a rich man and be looked after. After months of searching for the man with just enough money for her - trust fund babies just won't do it - she's immediately enticed when Marcus Broder shows interest. After a whirlwind romance, and after Kate proves she's worthy of being Mrs Broder, they marry, but for Kate marriage isn't all it's cracked up to be, and she splits. Marcus isn't happy, Kate decides she wants to have a career after all, and she falls in love again, not that the man she falls in love with cares, because he thinks she's nothing more than a gold-digger (which she is/was). With the greatest of respect, that's not the best start to any novel. As much as I understand Kate's desire to be married rich, I find it repulsive at the same time. I'm no raging feminist, but to go out hunting for a rich man, with the intent of marrying the richest one available whether you love him or not makes me want to weep.

Even more so than that, I wasn't entirely sure what the main plot of the novel was. It wasn't that Kate is/was a gold-digger, nor was it that she was trying to forge her way into a career in magazines or that she was trying to prove to a man she wasn't a gold-digger anymore. It seemed to be a mish-mash of all three culminating in a plot that seemed a bit thin on the ground quite frankly. Kate marries Marcus, but is then surprised when her days are filled with air-head-like tasks. What did she expect? She married for that exact reason, but got sick of it pretty quickly. I just found it tiresome. She married for money and then got offended because Marcus tried to mould her into something she didn't want to be.

Having admired Louise Mensch's performance in the telephone hacking enquiry, I thought I would try her out as a novelist. Alas and alack!! Probably it was no worse than any other so-called "chick-lit", but I discovered one thing - I am not an admirer of the genre!! Such a superficial, trivial plot and characters, and the inevitable sex, sex, sex, I won't be trying any more! I am sure Louise has a mind far more intelligent and competent than that revealed in this book, and I hope she will now just concentrate on her political work, in which I wish her the very best of luck!
