We gave it a C+

Despite its portentous title, this novel about a gold digger’s calculated search for love is little more than a racy rehash of Pretty Woman or any number of similarly old-fashioned hooker-with-a-heart-of-platinum tales. That’s not to say it isn’t great trashy fun. Felske, who covered the ”digger” scene in an investigative article for Manhattan File, clearly knows the turf (New York, Aspen, Hong Kong). But hollow sermonizing about female empowerment and a tacked-on, having-it-all ending can’t redeem the tired stereotypes of the pampered husband hunter and her flaming gay sidekick perpetuated in these pages.
