Fun Listen, Great Narrator

Cocktails for Three is a great story about 3 women working at the Londoner magazine who meet in a great bar each week to talk over their lives. In comparison to Sex and the City (which, really, sets the bar for all of these books), Roxanne's life is much like Samantha's and Maggie is Charlotte WITH a baby. The most compelling story, though, centers around Candice and an old acquaintance she runs into in the bar near the beginning of the book. All of the characters are well-developed, some more likable than others. The narration is tops - the reader has an authentic accent and gives this book a great voice!

Sophie Kinsella? I think not!

This book was okay, but not anything like Sophie Kinsella's other books, to which I have enjoyed. I thought this was slightly boring and almost couldn't wait until it was over. Sorry, Madeleine, but Sophie is better!
