Cocktails for Three by Madeleine Wickham

From Goodreads: 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.

I just read 40 Love another Madeleine Wickham book and remembered that I had never gotten around to posting this one last year. I had to give it a super quick reread which tells us something right off the bat - it doesn't stick with you! But it was a cute book and I enjoyed just as much the second time around - which is about three stars worth! It has a Sex in the City feel for me with the girls meeting at a favorite bar and hashing out all their troubles over cocktails. They each have their own unique problem so the book alternates between the three story lines. It was quick moving and interesting - a fun "read in an afternoon" book. I preferred this book over the other.
