Cocktails for Three & The Wedding Girl
Author: Madeleine Wickham
Cocktails for Three: Each month, three staffers of glamorous magazine 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 readers riveted through the last page.
The Wedding Girl: Milly is engaged to Simon - who is wealthy, serious, and believes her to be perfect. Now she is facing the biggest and most elaborate wedding imaginable. Her mother has it planned to the finest detail. But Milly also has a secret that could jeopardize everything. It's been hidden away so long she has almost persuaded herself that it doesn't exist - until, with only four days to go, her past catches up with her. With her trademark humor and remarkable insight, Madeleine Wickham requests our attendance to this wry and insightful comedy about modern marriage.
