In 40 Love, Everyone wins this game of literary tennis, a comedy of manners about envy in which Wickham skewers the nouveau riche. At their country estate, Patrick Chance and his wife host a weekend tennis party. As four couples gather on the sunny terrace, it seems obvious who among them is succeeding, and who is falling behind. But by the end of the party, nothing will be quite as certain. While the couples' children amuse themselves with pony rides and rehearsals for a play, the adults suffer a series of personal revelations and crises. Wickham's nonstop action reveals at every turn that matters may not be as they seem, and in the end one thing is crystal clear: the weekend is about anything but tennis.

From the Back Cover:

From the author of the sensational bestselling Sophie Kinsella novels and the New York Times bestsellers The Wedding Girl and Sleeping Arrangements

"Wickham aces the shallow rich...in this fast-paced novel." ―Publishers Weekly

Patrick Chance has the perfect setting for a tennis party―the White House. Bought out of his bonuses as an investment salesman, it is complete with stable, bar, jacuzzi, shell-shaped bedheads, and, of course, the tennis court. But what is the real reason for the party? His brash and beautiful wife, Caroline, hides her suspicions in a cloud of Pimm's-induced laughter. She's happy to welcome Stephen and Annie, their impoverished former neighbors, less happy to see newly wealthy Charles and his aristocratic wife, Cressida, and barely able to tolerate the deadly competitive Don and Valerie. As the first ball is served over the net, it signals the start of two days of tempers, shocks, revelations, the arrival of an uninvited guest―and the realization that the weekend is about anything but tennis.

"Delivers a decided satisfaction." ―Kirkus Reviews
