I took a cruise last March and read this book in a day while sitting by the pool having a few cocktails (fitting). It's a cute, humorous quick read. I was surprised how well Wickham developed her characters, and there were a few times where the drama in the story had me saying "oh my God, guess what just happened!?" to whoever was sitting next to me. I really could sympathize with the three main characters at times. If you like Wickham's other books I would definitely recommend this one. I also like how Wickham always pulls together for a (relatively) happy ending. If you're looking for something deep and meaningful, this isn't it, but it's worth reading if you're looking for something "fun"!

"Cocktails for Three" is one of those books that was just made for summer.....read it by the pool while sipping a strawberry daquiri. Reading any book by Madeleine Wickham is wonderful for zoning out...mindless entertainment with a heart. You may know Wickham better by her pen name, Miss Sophie Kinsella, the queen of British chick lit. This is the story of three best friends...each one with a secret. There is Candice, with a childlike innocence and a terrible past; Maggie, a new mother who does not feel any of the emotions that new moms are "supposed" to feel; and Roxanne, unbelievably glamorous with a secret man on the side. None are as happy inwardly as they portray to others. Their first of the month cocktail meetings are held as a release with friends. When a new girl enters the picture closely tied to Candice, will it tear the three friends apart for good or or bring them even closer together? I have said before that Wickham (AKA...Sophie Kinsella) is a master at "intelligent" chick lit. The reader cares about her characters and wants them to succeed. This is a great book to read when you want to get away from it all. It's a great form of escapism.

I picked this book quite randomly one day when I was browsing the local Barnes and Noble. I was not expecting much but I was pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed reading it from the minute I opened the book. It was not at all what I expected. I am usually a reader of Dean Koontz, Anne Rice, Stephen King... along those lines. So this was very different for me but I thought it was very nicely written. I have passed it on to my mum and on my next visit to the store I will look for other books by this author.

While it's not as good as her Shopaholic series, I think this book comes as a close second. I found it way better than Gatecrashers. It was an easy read that at times kept me wanting to read more. This book is almost like a Sex and the City. It's an enjoyable, short book and worth the read. On another note, I really like how Madeline Wickham uses two names. It's nice to be able to read these other books by her when there's nothing new out under her Sophie Kinsella

Cute book for a girls reading group. About 3 girls who are friends and how each of their lives are so different but they all have a common ground. Their love for each other.
