    Aidan loaned me this book. I think I may have traded for my Jenny McCarthy collection, though unintentionally. I liked it, then I didn't because it was way too predictable, but now I like it again. It is about 3 friends, one a new mom, one a likely alcoholic who is her boss's mistress ...

    I picked this one up from my friend Dani(new to goodreads) the snippet on the cover proclaims the book to be "deliciously wicked and witty and funny" or something to that effect. Dani gave me her review before lending it out, "it's not deliciously witty and funny but it's pretty good. ...

    i think i've read everything sophie kinsella's written, but this is my first foray into madeleine wickham. it is not, as my husband assumed from the title, about a threesome, but about three best friends who meet at a bar once a month for cocktails. each is hiding a deep secret from th...

    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. This book was horribly depressing from the get-go. One character is being taken advantage of by a girl she's trying to help, and you can see ...

    Have fun read that is really women?s fiction more than chick lit. Three friends go through tough times and this story is about their friendship and how it fails but also perseveres. ...

    This is probably the most painful chicklit book I've ever read. I love when Madeliene writes as Sophie Kinsella, so I thought I'd give this book a go. Big mistake. I've had it out from the library for over a month and I'm finally finished with it. This one was truly phoned in....

    I was looking for a light, quick read and got that, but unfortunately, it was very predictable and I never could connect with the 3 main characters. Skimmed the last half. ...

    It's no secret that i love Sophie Kinsella's writing.As a corollary, i assumed that i would like Madeleine Wickham's writing as well.After all,it was by the same author. I wouldn't say i was entirely right. The writing styles are as different as morning and night. Whereas,Kinsella enth...

    For me, "Cocktails for Three" was just okay. One of those books where I would say "that was a nice read," but its not compelling, its not a page turner. It is just...nice. The characters are all very dichotomous, which is nice (this word is going to be used a lot to describe this bo...

    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. You read it because it's easy and quick and, frankly, because it's the only book you packed. I predicted what was going to happen very quickly and I...

    FROM THE BLURB 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 ......

    I am a huge fan of Madeleine Wickham?or rather, I should say that I am a huge fan of her when she writes under her pen name, Sophie Kinsella. That?s right, the author of this little known chick lit. novel is in fact the hugely famous writer of the Shopaholic series, among other awe...

    "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, Mi...

    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! Cocktails for three is the first of Madeleine's novels that I've re...

    This book was just okay. Honestly, I love Madeleine Wickham when she writes as Sophie Kinsella because the books are light and they usually make me laugh. But this is the second go that I've had with Madeleine Wickham and, even though logically I know it's the same person, I just think...

    Loved the story .. The three friends , their friendship, their issues and the writing. And was surprised at the end to discover that the author was Sophie Kinsella writing in another name. ...

    frankly, i dont read this book front to end. i simply skip the pages where Heather are in. i hate the Heather part. even when they first met her. i know that she is up for no good. how stupid for candice to not know it. duh! so i just read the first half of the book, without skipping a...

    This book was a premiere for me. It was my first time reading Sophie Kinsella under her real name, Madeline Wickham and to say I was surprised might be an understatement. Where she writes with spunk and wit, great humor and engaging characters as Kinsella, as Wickham feels less pla...

    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. This book reminded me of my friends and I which is maybe why I loved it. I appreciated how...

    I was so disappointed in this book. I really like Sophie Kinsella, but this was my first book under Madeline Wickham. I didn't like any of the characters. The plot took a very different twist than I was expecting from just judging it by the cover. ...

    Stupid Candice and more foolish Roxanne, a doubtful Maggie and a treacherous Heather. A good for nothing cocktail club and a mildly good setup but awfully crafted story we could sniff after few pages itself. ...

    Funny quips amid troubles. Not short-lived champagne fizz of ambitious or frivolous rich, more bitter beer of everyday (female) human woes. Outer conversations and inner thoughts both sound real. Situations resolve believably with resources we have seen, no deus ex machina out of the b...

    So?the reviews and blurbs printed on this book really misled me. For example, the book wasn?t, ?deliciously funny...witty and wicked.? So, hoping for a funny book, I spent almost 100 pages disappointed. However, I stuck it out because the writing and story-telling are very good...

    This was an alright book overall. The story wasn't great and was pretty predictable. The plot gave me the feels of a lifetime movie. I was loving all of Sophie Kinsella's novels and decided to follow up with her Madeleine Wickham works. This was the first of those that I read, and it ...

    I thought the book was just ok. It started out slow but definitely got more interesting towards the middle and end- enough to keep me from putting it down and starting something new. ...
