If you like Sophie Kinsella, you’ll love Cocktails for Three. Madeleine Wickham, whose Sophie Kinsella books are international bestsellers, has written an irresistibly dishy and entertaining novel about three savvy young women and the secrets they share over monthly drinks.

Each month, three staffers of The Londoner gather at a nearby lounge for an evening of cocktails and gossip. One April evening, Maggie relishes her last weeks of normalcy before the birth of her first child, while Roxanne breezes through between glamorous foreign assignments. But Candice’s chance encounter with a girl from her past reveals secret depths in the clean-scrubbed reporter, and the events that follow have permanent repercussions for the trio.

With the graceful storytelling and dark humor that have made her books beloved international bestsellers, Wickham introduces a trio of irrepressibly charming women whose adventures will keep listeners riveted through the very last word.
