Two years later, Effie still cannot believe her parents are divorced, and now her dad has a new, much younger, girlfriend (Krista) that Effie might have jokingly called a gold digger at the last family dinner. To make matters worse, Effie has just found out that Greenoaks, their beloved family home, has been sold. Krista is throwing a big send off party for the house, but Effie has been left off the original guest list and then receives an invitation which seems like an afterthought Effie is definitely not going, but then remembers her childhood treasured Russian dolls are there and she cannot be without those. Effie decides to go full out "Mission Impossible" mode and stealthily enter the house during the party to retrieve her dolls, except it doesn't quite work out that way. What comes next is pages of hilarious blunders, edged with the true love of family.
The Party Crasher was a fun and laughter filled adventure with a heartwarming feel and I loved it all.
