Having read all the Sophie Kinsella books, I have started reading some of her books under her original author name. I expect the Wickham books to be different, but this seemed to be the strongest departure from her usually light and funny style. Truth be told, I found myself crying through parts of it! The cutesy cover art did not prepare me for the sadder storylines. However, since I have enjoyed so many of her other books, I will still try more Wickham novels. ( )

I found this quite predictable all the way through, though it definitely still had its entertaining parts.
I'd recommend it to people looking for a quick, light read. ( )

Average chick lit . Nice book to read on a Holliday. It's about the live of three woman who has to deal with their own problems and how this effects their friendship. ( )

This was such a cute book! I felt like I was there with the girls and their cocktails. It brought up some serious issues that most women face, especially those with children. Another quick read but well worth your time! ( )

Overall, I enjoyed this "chick lit" book. It definitely had heavier topics, and although some of the plot twists were hard to believe I liked the way the three characters developed. I especially liked the relationship with Ralph- I didnt see that one coming. Yes, it is a little bit darker than the Shopaholic books. However, the same messages behind the story, character development, and entertainment are still there. I was glad to find Madeleine Wickham, and will definitely pick up some more of her (Kinsella's) books. ( )

First words
Candice Brewin pushed open the heavy glass door of the Manhattan Bar and felt the familiar swell of warmth, noise, light and clatter rush over her.

Book description
Roxanne, Candice en Maggie, sinds jaren dikke vriendinnen, werken alle drie bij een glossy tijdschrift in Londen. Elke maand hebben ze een vaste afspraak om bij te kletsen over alles wat er in hun leven gebeurt, met veel cocktails, de laatste roddels en slappe-lachbuien. Maar achter hun succesvolle pantser verbergen de jonge powervrouwen een groot geheim. Roxanne heeft een geheime minnaar. Maggie denkt dat ze niet geschikt is voor het moederschap. Candice wordt meedogenloos door haar verleden ingehaald. Een toevallige ontmoeting in de cocktailbar zet de levens van de vriendinnen op scherp. Zullen zij elkaar door dik en dun blijven steunen?
Meeslepend en sprankelend verhaal - om in één zucht uit te lezen. Bijzonder verfrissende chicklit roman. Shaken, not stirred.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312349998, Paperback)

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.
