Chloe needs a holiday. She's sick of making wedding dresses, her partner Philip has troubles at work, and the whole family wants a break. Her wealthy friend Gerard has offered the loan of his luxury villa in Spain-perfect. Hugh is not a happy man. His wife Amanda seems more interested in her new kitchen than in him, and he works so hard to pay for it, he barely has time for his children. Maybe he'll have a chance to bond with them on holiday. His old friend Gerard has lent them a luxury villa in Spain- perfect. Both families arrive at the villa and get a shock-Gerard has double-booked. An uneasy week of sharing begins, and tensions soon mount in the soaring heat. But there's a secret history between the families-and as tempers fray, an old passion begins to resurface.... Following the incredible success of the New York Times bestseller, The Gatecrasher, Sleeping Arrangements is sure to cement Wickham as one of the most popular names in women's fiction today.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa R | 2/18/2014

    " It was a easy read, but I was a little dissapointed in the end :( "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Renee | 2/17/2014

    " As a fan of Sophie Kinsella/Madeleine Wickham, I was very disappointed in this book. It was far below her other books in plot and her characters were not likeable. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Judith | 2/8/2014

    " Eh, this didn't really do it for me. Characters were all awful people and it was hard to like any of them. And the plot was ridiculous even for this type of story. Glad I borrowed from a friend and that I spent zero money on it. At least it was a quick read to help me catch up on my reading challenge goal. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Miranda | 2/1/2014

    " I've enjoyed most of sophie kinsella's books but this one was not one of my favorites. The characters were not very sympathetic or likeable although I did like the ending. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Domiçay | 1/21/2014

    " Je merkt Kinsella/Wickham hier nog aan het begin van haar carriere zit. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angelic | 1/20/2014

    " Not bad chic lit, and better than some of her Shopaholic books. It's a great light read for days when you're not in the mood for anything too heavy. I recommend a nice glass of white wine with it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Helen Kl | 1/18/2014

    " Bit of a washout. I was expecting much more from this book. I will force myself to read to the end of the book but to be honest don't really care enough about any of the characters. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer Baum | 12/27/2013

    " Pretty lame characters, somewhat ridiculous story. Unrealistic. Odd, because I love her books under the Sophie Kinsela name. Apparently her alter ego is a better writer. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Celeste | 12/20/2013

    " some teen sex and extra marital but it was fun and easy to read. There was a big mixup and confusion but everything worked out in the end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amber | 12/19/2013

    " Ok book but definitely not my favorite book by the author. To me the story was lacking. I'm not sure what exactly but I guess it wasn't as entertaining as some of her other books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Liz | 12/17/2013

    " Certainly not her best book, possibly her worst. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kacie | 11/19/2013

    " smut with a little bit of weed mixed in at the end... weird :) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marcie | 11/14/2013

    " I don't think that the Madeline Wickham books flow nearly as well as the Sophie Kinsella books. Sleeping Arrangements plays more like a mediocre movie that never really comes together. I liked it enough to finish it, but that's about it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ja'nai | 11/3/2013

    " I found myself skimming passages more than reading just so I could get to the interesting parts. This was not my favorite book by this author as she attempts to be more serious and heavy than when she writes as Sophie Kinsella. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rehan | 7/22/2013

    " ok but still cannt beat the shopaholic series:) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Krisan | 5/22/2013

    " Good for a mindless summer read, but I wasn't 100% crazy about how the book ended. It left things a little bit flat for me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cherubim Cassandra Paula Javier | 1/6/2013

    " As much as I love Sophie, I didn't really like this book too much. Some stuff were unnecessary, and the ending was just...whack. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Stephanie Hall | 9/13/2012

    " Boring... not sure why I read this "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheryl | 7/10/2012

    " It was okay... Easy to read like all Sophie Kinsella books, yet I really didn't like the main characters and one certain event all that much. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marcel | 2/27/2012

    " it had a unique story but a weird one and awful because the ending was so bad. it was an unsolved ending story and for me it's very bad. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wendy Hollister | 2/4/2012

    " pure entertainment and light content what I call an "in betweener" book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katherine Thornton | 12/21/2011

    " Not really a book I would usually read, but very easy book. Been a week and I'm almost finished. A good read if you want something...'nice' to read that doesn't involve too much brain work "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Adele Goetz | 12/4/2011

    " Dumb, but goes by quickly. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christine | 5/26/2011

    " BORING. I think I only read it because I read all of Madeline Wickham's other books (aka Sophie Kinsella), and just wanted to be able to check it off the list. Definitely her worst. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dbarkla | 5/22/2011

    " Sophie Kinsella wrote this under this name. Good, quick, fun read! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bonnie | 5/20/2011

    " This book was alright. The situation the writer created for the characters was unique. I liked that the characters had a past with each other. I just felt that this book was bland. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hayley | 5/17/2011

    " This is the first book I have read under Sophie Kinsella's real name. I found this book tricky to get into but by the end I loved it and didnt want it to end. If you like Sophie Kinsella, you are bound to like these books aswell. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brittany | 5/13/2011

    " A bit boring and slow. I much prefer her writing as Sophie Kinsella. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rachel | 5/12/2011

    " Dumb - total waste of time. Her other books are MUCH better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emma | 5/3/2011

    " An enjoyable but predictable read.

    After reading Mini Shopaholic, this book has restored my faith in Sophie Kinsella. The characters were mostly believable and likable.

    Not a bad read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracy | 5/1/2011

    " Typical Sophie Kensella - light, mindless, perfect summer read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jennifer | 4/24/2011

    " TRASH!!!!!!!!! I have really enjoyed the Sophie Kinsella books so far not loving Madeleine Wickman "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shirley | 3/19/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Torimac | 3/14/2011

    " Some sections of the book were really entertaining, but i never really felt it all pull together into one story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shelly | 3/13/2011

    " I was really looking forward to buy n read SK's book as MW but it really took me so long to finish this book after began it.. I didn't enjoy read this one.a real disapppointment to buy it =-= "
