Book Club Friday!

This week I'm reviewing:

Roxanne: glamorous, self-confident, with a secret lover -- a married man
Maggie: capable and high-achieving, until she finds the one thing she can't cope with -- motherhood
Candice: honest, decent, or so she believes -- until a ghost from her past turns up

At the first of every month, when the office has reached its pinnacle of hysteria, Maggie, Roxanne, and Candice meet at London's swankiest bar for an evening of cocktails and gossip. Here, they chat about what's new at The Londoner, the glossy fashion magazine where they all work, and everything else that's going on in their lives. Or almost everything. Beneath the girl talk and the laughter, each of the three has a secret. And when a chance encounter at the cocktail bar sets in motion an extraordinary chain of events, each one will find their biggest secret revealed. In Cocktails for Three, Madeleine Wickham combines her trademark humor with remarkable insight to create an edgy, romantic tale of secrets, strangers, and a splash of scandal.


This is technically a Sophie Kinsella novel (under a different pen name) who I'm a big fan of, and it did not disappoint. It was slightly different - more friendship and life events than love - but that was refreshing. After a rough day at work, I ended up coming home and finishing the last half of the book and it really helped my mood. I definitely recommend it and it'll be a nice cozy read even after summer is over. :)


  1. This book has been on my to read list forever! I need to hurry up and read it!

  2. This looks like a book right up my alley! Adding it to my goodreads list :)

    happy friday!

  4. I've read a few Madeline Wickman books, and the ones I've read I have enjoy. Just not as much as her Sophie Kinsella ones.
