Quick and interesting read. Having just finished the Netflix series about Delvey, this gave a slightly different perspective with more detail into the actual correspondence and texts between Anna and Rachel. ( )

I’ve got to say that I didn’t really keep up with the Anna Delvey scandal when it happened. I read a few articles but got distracted by other shiny things on the internet. A book is the better way to capture my attention and who closer to the story to tell it but Rachel, Anna’s friend. Rachel also ended up footing the bill for an extravagant stay in Marrakech after Anna’s cards were declined. This set off alarm bells that something wasn’t quite right with Anna’s claim to money and ended with a trial and conviction.

It’s a very detailed story, with transcripts of text message exchanges and emails. It starts when things started to fall apart for Anna and Rachel’s friendship in Marrakech. Anna had always been the one to pay for everything – personal trainers, dinners and drinks that Rachel couldn’t always afford on her salary. Anna had always been somewhat flaky when it came to a range of things according to Rachel – time management, being nice to staff in hotels and restaurants and making definite plans. But this trip sounded off alarm bells from the beginning and Rachel ended up paying for the trip across her personal and corporate credit cards. What started as a friendship started to crumble as Anna becomes more and more evasive about paying the money back. Rachel is desperate and in huge amounts of debt. How can she get paid?

Much has been said about each person’s motivations, but I feel it’s important to remember that these are all real people (who we don’t know personally). Yes, perhaps Rachel was naïve but I’m sure we’ve all had friends we knew were bad for us and fallen for something stupid before. Anna was happy to treat her to all sorts of things and Rachel didn’t question it early on. Anna is portrayed as blunt, rude and dismissive at times in the book but there seems to be some magnetism that draws Rachel to her blasé. The bigger scandal was that Anna had fabricated her past and was financing her lavish lifestyle by bouncing cheques between banks, resulting in multiple charges.

The story is very, very detailed, possibly because of the file Rachel puts together to document everything that’s happened. Sometimes it’s a little too much, but perhaps that’s the catharsis Rachel needed. It’s the story of being fooled by money and glamour alongside a spectacular fraud.

this book stressed me out! I actually had to read the end first to make sure things turned out mostly okay. Fraud stories are my favorite true crime stories, which is why I was drawn to this book. This is a very introspective and well-written perspective of what it's like being a victim of this kind of crime. I vaguely remembered hearing about the trial when this is happening but I really didn't know much about it. It was very interesting to hear from someone so close to the story. If you're interested in fraud crimes, I think you'll like this book. ( )

Really enjoyed this account of a young woman who is befriended by a wealthy heiress and taken for a ride. So much unbelievable stuff happened, it got hard to put down toward the end. ( )

This book is both extremely entertaining & extremely tedious, and includes CSI-level detail about what people were wearing, eating, drinking, whatever, and sentences like "The food was arranged buffet style to encourage socializing." The author takes pains to identify Anna Delvey as status-seeking, name-dropping, etc., but I'm gonna be a real bitch for a second & say that you don't get to be $65k in the hole w/ A.D. without having something in common.
