Cocktails for Three - Madeleine Wickham

You may be more familiar with Sophie Kinsella - author of the Shopaholic series, as well as other chick lit titles. But Kinsella and Wickham are one and the same. Earlier novels were written under her real name - Wickham.

I listened to this in audio format, driving back and forth to work. Katherine Kellgren is one of the best British readers I have listened to. Her lively voice, expressions and accents all bring the book to life.

Maggie, Roxanne and Candice all work at The Londoner - a fashion magazine. They regularly get together for cocktails. Although the best of friends, they are keeping a few secrets from each other. When Candice befriends their waitress, a girl from her past, their lives are all affected.

Although this is chick lit, it is not as comical as the Shopaholics. I don't know if I would have enjoyed it as much in written form, but it was a good listen!
