I have been a fan of Sophie Kinsella since Confessions of a Shopaholic was released in 2001. I remember it so clearly, I was a sophomore in college. I was living in my sorority house for the first time and absolutely loving college. Somehow I stumbled upon this little jem of a book and have been hooked on chic lit ever since!
That book got passed around to all of my sisters that I lived with after that. One of them probably still has it! I definitely have no idea where it is now (unfortunately).
Since then I have read every Sophie Kinsella novel as soon as it came out.
A few years ago I found out that Madeleine Wickham is Sophie Kinsella (or Sophie Kinsella is Madeleine Wickham) and picked up Cocktails for Three. Since that time I have tried to read it twice and could not get into it.
Recently I checked out The Wedding Girl (as discussed here) which is Madeleine Wickham's newest title and I'm hoping this book gets me hooked on her novels.
Has anyone read any books by her? Is the writing style different from Confessions, Remember Me?, Can You Keep a Secret?, or Twenties Girl? If so, that really fascinates me. I'm sure lots of authors have different writing styles, but to me, that takes true talent!
