Jan 01, Melissa rated it it was ok. Jackie November 27, I therefore sympathised with her regret at the loss of her former lifestyle, and the apparent shackles of motherhood. It sat on my bookshelf for all this time because I just never felt in the mood for it, having heard mixed reviews about the stories Kinsella writes under her real name.


EACH has a secret that is about to unfold yb weave the story together I wouldn’t say i was entirely right. It’s no secret that i love Sophie Kinsella’s writing.

Sep 07, Andrea Guy rated it it was ok Shelves: Then there was Maggie, who was my favorite, and I have no idea why. It was not as polished or funny actually I didn’t find it all funny as the Shopaholic series and I wasn’t particularly invested in any of the characters although having been a victim of a psychopath myself once I identified with Candice, the wide eyed innocent but if you enjoy Kinsella’s work and want something a little darker, a little less well written, then this book is for you.

Some changes can happen gradually. Mar 06, Kelly rated it did not like it Shelves: Do all Roxanne’s have to be gutsy and spunky?. Vulpes Libris wants to savelibraries! Where she writes with spunk and wit, great humor and engaging characters as Kinsella, as Wickham feels less playful, more restraint and the characters are not as lively.

Cocktails for Three by Madeleine Wickham: a disappointingly light concoction

Lists with This Book. It wasn’t worth wading through anymore of this depressing and un-enjoyable crap in the hopes that it might all end happily. I’ve read three books by Sophie Kinsella writing as Madeleine Wickham but I’m not sure I’ll be picking up another one any time soon. The story wasn’t great and was pretty predictable.

The book didn’t make me gasp out of surprise at any point in the narrative. It gives off a certain Sex and the City flare, with stand-ins for Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte, but minus the terror that is Carrie Bradshaw.

Roxanne is sleeping with a married man. 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 that she loses some of her mojo when she’s not writing as Sophie Kinsella.

This one was truly phoned in.
