Book of the Month: Cocktails for Three by Sophie Kinsella/Madeline Wickham

Well, here’s another author who never really appealed to me, but the world went Shopaholic crazy and I figured I’d give it ago and the intention was there to buy at least confessions of a shopaholic when I purposefully walked into a bookstore.
