Outside of work they meet up once a month at the Manhattan bar to catch up with one anothe After several girlfriends let me in on the fact that one of my favorite authors Sophie Kinsella was actually a pen name for Madeleine Wickham and that Madeleine had various novels published, I was eager to read them! As much as I love all the books Wickham writes as Sophie Kinsella, I have found that I just don’t like anything she write under her actual name.

Not even the other 2 girls. Als Maggie moet gaan bevallen, trekt ze zich terug in de Pine en laat ze Candice en Roxanne achter. The book didn’t make me gasp out of surprise at any point in the narrative. Maggie, Roxanne and Candice, the heroines of Wickham’s latest Brit romp, are three successful women in their early 30s working in the editorial office of the Londonera magazine enjoying a circulation renaissance.

It is about 3 friends, one a new mom, one a likely alcoholic who is her boss’s mistress and the other being taken advantage of by a blast from the past. Once a month it was cocktail hour for the three besties.

The Best Books of I liked it, then I didn’t because it was way too predictable, but now I like it again. In a predictable climax, Wickham delivers a nicely sewn up ending with each of the character’s problems resolved, although none all that happily.

Jackie Madeleibe 27, Still, I worked it out pretty fast and had to rush to order a second copy which, thankfully, turned up with all pages intact before I was forced to write my own version of the missing scenes. Contact Follow us on Twitter: Nov 08, Machel rated it really liked it. I can tell this book will be a quick read.

You read it because it’s easy and quick and, frankly, because it’s the only book you packed. I also think Madeline Wickham as herself is not as superior as Sophie Kinsella her ghost writer name. I am a fan of the Shopaholic books so I thought I would give this book a shot and as I am traveling I needed an easy plane read.


I love books to make me feel something. This is the story of three best friends Readers desiring a chatty, neatly told tale will be delighted by the author’s deft handling of character development and drama. Witty and wicked, each of these charmers has a distinctive persona and a personal problem.

Throughout the entire series, her obsession with shopping and the complications that imparts on her life are central themes.

Anne Brooke lives in Surrey, UK, and writes threee a variety of genres, including gay erotic romance, fantasy, comedy, thrillers, biblical fiction and the occasional chicklit novel.

This novel is jolly good fun and I loved it so much that I’ve already started reading another Wickham book, the Gatecrasher. They discussed everything except their well-guarded secrets.

Anyone that couldn’t guess what Heather is up to or about to be up to almost from the instant she is introduced, isn’t paying attention to the story. Heel leuk verhaal voor de jonge, ambitieuze vrouw. This book reminded me of my friends and I which is maybe why Fof loved wickhsm.


It was the second one, Sleeping Arrangements, which put me right off. Now that would have been nice …. I also thought Candice had absolutely no common sense in her opinions of people.

None are as happy inwardly wjckham they portray to others. Aug 26, Krissi rated it it was ok. Books by Madeleine Wickham the real name of Sophie Kinsella are the types of books you read when you’re lying in the sun on holiday.

I was really hoping for something more glamorous, but that wasn’t to be found here. But if no-one is present to hear it does he really make fot sound?


Or maybe I am being too harsh because I found the character of Candice to bloody annoying to read much about. Reading any book by Madeleine Wickham is wonderful for zoning hhree Colorful and good in its own splendor. Did it really happen? An arrival, a departure and a deception crashed down on the secrets of the three friends before they could reach out for the next olive or the bowl of complimentary almonds on the bar table.

The plot took a very different twist than I was expecting from just judging it by the cover. Three successful young women in the magazine business meet on the first day of every month for cocktails in a London bar and reveal secrets that could undermine their lives and relationships.
