Sophie used to think she was a good girl with a solid moral compass but that was before hunky rock idol Dan reenters her life and decides she should be his wife. So in Sophie’s Turn, we find Sophie on tour with Dan and his band Tuscq while her mild-mannered pseudo fiancé is in London doing, well, who knows what he’s doing while Sophie is sharing a bed in Paris with Dan. Nicky Wells does a fantastic job of painting Sophie as conflicted rather than a flighty adulteress with two men after her and that’s good because she really isn’t that at all. She faces a common dilemma that real women do every day: to be who she is with Dan or mold herself into the perfect wife Tim believes he deserves. She doesn't quite see that in Tim yet, so when he proposes she says yes, hence her having two fiancés. Lucky girl…or not.
What’s so great about Sophie’s Turn is that despite the heaviness of a love triangle it is truly great fun. Dan shows Sophie a great time on the road, inundating her with all the perks of a rock star lifestyle while she also gets to know him up close and personal. What more could a girl ask for? But as these things tend to go, Tim finally starts acting like a man, forcing Sophie to make her choice. Nicky Wells knows how to give us a love triangle without making it seem seedy or dirty, which is a real treat considering one point of this triangle is a rock star. Sophie is so likable and strong and that made Sophie’s Turn all the more enjoyable for this reader.
