Summary:

Sophie Kinsella has conquered the hearts of millions with her New York Times bestselling Shopaholic novels, which feature the irresistible one-woman shopping phenomenon Becky Bloomwood. Now Becky’s back in a hilarious, heartwarming tale of married life, best friends, and long-lost sisters (and the perils of simply having to own an Angel handbag!).

What’s a round-the-world honeymoon if you can’t buy the odd souvenir to ship back home? Like the Chinese urns and twenty silk dressing gowns Becky found in Hong Kong…the five kilim rugs from Turkey…the splendid hand-carved dining table (and ten chairs) from Sri Lanka…the, um, huge wooden giraffes from Malawi (that her husband Luke expressly forbade her to buy)…

Only now Becky and Luke have returned home to London and Luke is furious. Two truckloads of those souvenirs have cluttered up their usually immaculate loft, and the bills for them are outrageous. Becky’s even maxed out on her second secret credit card, and she doesn’t have a new job yet!

Luke insists she go on a budget. And worse: her beloved best friend Suze has found a new best friend while Becky was away. Becky’s feeling rather blue—when her parents deliver some incredible news. She has a long-lost sister! Becky is thrilled! She’s convinced her sister will be a true soulmate. They’ll go shopping together, drink cappuccinos together, have manicures together, and watch their favorite videos together.

Until she meets Jessica for the first time and gets the shock of her life. Surely Becky Bloomwood’s sister can’t…hate shopping?

    This was a great "read". I love the author and this charcter, Becky Bloomwood, has been a favorite since Confessions of a Shopaholic! If you love funny, lighthearted stories, you'll love this one.

    I am sending this book back after listening only to the first CD. I cannot get into this author. I found Kinsella's book "Remember Me" equallly uninteresting. Sophia Kinsella's books are just too slow at the beginning to hold my interest.

    I enjoyed the first book in this series, but this book was just not very good. I started to really dislike the main character, and ultimately, I didn't even finish it...

    I just love a Sophie Kinsella novel. Becky Brandon is one of my favorite heroines. I think we all have a little Becky in us, but when I listen to her I realize I am not a shopaholic! Great reading for pure entertainment and fun. I love this narrator and adore her interpretation of the characters. This series has been a lot of fun and I'm looking forward to Shopaholic and Baby when it becomes available. The only sad thing about a Sophie Kinsella novel is having them end.

  • Angela

    Very entertaining and funny. I found myself laughing out load while driving.

  • Michelle Keller

    This book was ok. The start was really slow and dull. It kind of got on my nerves that Becky is so obsessed with shopping. But it got better at the end. Will most likely listen to the next one.

  • KJ

    Becky Bloomwood is too dumb for words, not-even a believable story. I found myself thinking pull the CD out and sent this one back.

  • Kelly Abad

    This book was an easy listen. It made me laugh a few times. Other books by this author have kept my interest more. All in all it's a good, easy listen and it definitely helped with my boring commute.

  • Anonymous

    I thought this was an easy listen, funny and entertaining book. I even laughed out loud a few times.

  • Pat

    I like her books. It's kind of like stepping into the sunshine after you've listened to mysteries, danger, intense, etc. Loved The Domestic Goddess. For some reason, I keep thinking Bridget Jones.
