By stealth, the rock singer draws Sophie into the behind-the-scenes work for his band’s latest album.

Join Sophie and Dan in Sophie’s Encore to find out how their journey will end…
Right from the very beginning I was drawn it. In fact – my jaw hit the table I was sitting at in Costa Coffee. I pulled my phone straight out of my bag and tweeted Nicky “I can’t believe it, you went and ….”. Now if you want to know what she went and did, well then you will have to go and read the book. Be prepared however to be shocked!
Anyway as you will see from the description of the book, all hasn’t not remained rosy in Sophie’s garden. The constants in her life though have remained. Dan and Rachel. Dan the man she was in love with once upon a time but who is now one of the people she is closest to and depends on. Rachel her long time best friend and confident. We get to see how the two carry Sophie through her darkest times and how they try to get her to see that her life still has to be lived, regardless if it’s the life she imagined she would be living. Whether it’s the life she wants to be living.
We watch as Sophie tries to put her families life back together, and watch on as she refuses to see the obvious and risks losing Dan forever. This is most certainly the most emotional of the three books. Parts of which are quite raw and delve into darker more serious issues than the first two. Beautifully written – of course, we would expect no less and full of intimate knowledge and detail of the music business. A lot of care went into the writing of this series and its telling in its authenticity. While I raced through the book I tried to slow down in the last twenty pages or so as I just wasn’t ready to let go.
Two things jumped out at me as I put the book away for the last time.
1 – I think Jodie’s story has to be told. It’s screaming at me from the pages. I think we should petition Nicky Wells to write Jodie’s story – what do ye think?
2- I’m sorry Nicky and I adored all three books, but for me they aren’t over. There is still so much more to be told. Please don’t stop with Sophie and Dan’s story. Especially given the ending…
