This is a good place to start if you're a Sophie Kinsella fan and want to read the author's books as written by Madeleine Wickham. Just keep in mind that they are not as fluffy as the Kinsella books and are meant to be more "realistic", moreso in the sense that there are affairs, business deals gone wrong, etc. than everyday people actually having millions of pounds or dollars to worry about. Bottom line: Wickham's novels are on subjects less frivolous than the shopping addictions in Kinsella's works.

Light easy read, but not particularly funny or memorable.

full of secrets and characters you can love to hate or hate to love.. and my opinions of the characters completely changed as the novel went on (I ended up liking the ones I disliked at first, and disliking the ones I initially liked). a couple good laughs in there too. easy to read in 1 or 2 sittings. mindless and entertaining.

An interesting romp through a weekend tennis party in the English countryside home of the upwardly mobile. A fast read but none of the characters are particularly likeable.
