This was the first book by Madeleine Whickham that I had read, having enjoyed all of her books under her pen-name of Sophie Kinsella. I wasn't disappointed and found it absorbing and the characters believable. I'm definitely going to read more of her books.

I borrowed this from my sister, I am glad I didn't pay for it. I've read most of the books she has written as Sophie Kinsella, so I was expecting something a little bit more like that. However, I found this book very boring. The characters were 2-dimensional and mostly unpleasant, even when you were supposed to empathise with them. The spineless parents were easily led by a manipulative lawyer to sue their friends, and their intermittent bursts of rationality were easily headed off by the most obvious ploys. The content and style struck me as old-fashioned, reminding me of a poor attempt at Mary Wesley. The subject was miserable, the people in the book were miserable, and I was miserable by the time I'd finished it. Had it not been borrowed, I would have immediately given it to charity. As it is, I don't recommend it at all, especially if you've enjoyed the Shopaholic books or her other novels.

This is the first of Madeleine's books I have read, although I have read her other books under the writer of Sophie Kinsella.
Did not really know what to expect, but quickly became engrossed in Swimming Pool Sunday, which is set in an country village. Reminded me a bit of Midsomer Murders but without the murder, kept me turning the page and wanting to find out what happens in the end. Really enjoyed the book and am looking forward to reading many more.

This is the first of Madeleine Wickham's books that I read, about 6 years ago now...and i've been hooked ever since! Every single one of her books are brilliant, her writing style makes it impossible to put a book down...leaving you on the edge of your seat at the end of every chapter! I would recommend each and every book she had written...a perfect writer.

Practically nothing happens during the first seventy pages ... I nearly gave up! Fortunately something happens to add interest (I won't tell you what!) and the book gets going ...

Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella is just not my thing. But I am enjoying reading Madeleine Wickham's tales

Typical sunny day in the village. There's an accident. Turmoil. A tad predictable but that's just what you need sometimes from a bit of chick lit.

Discovered her by accident. Glad I did. Have enjoyed them all so far. Especially The Wedding Girl and in second place, Cocktails For Three.

I am a huge fan of Kinsella and whilst I have been a bit disapointed in some of her latest books like twenties girl i have been discovering the books she wrote in her past name and have really enjoyed them. This one was no diffrent.

I love how these books take no effort to read and that the writing flows nicely.

Simple plot with a predictable ending but enjoyed all the same.

I love Sophie Kinsella, but as Madeleine Wickman she can be a bit boring. the book seems to be littered with mistakes. I have read half of it and gone onto something else! when reading a Sophie Kinsella book I can't put it down. not worth paying for.
