Publisher's Summary

Nothing comes between Becky Brandon (née Bloomwood) and her bargains. Neither act of God nor budget crunch can shatter her dreams of wall-to-wall Prada. Every milestone in her well-shopped life (travel, long-lost sister, marriage, pregnancy) inspires new vistas to explore in the name of retail therapy. But now she faces her greatest little challenge yet: Becky’s two-year-old daughter, Minnie.
While motherhood has been everything Becky dreamed it would be - Baby Dior, Little Marc Jacobs, and Dolce & Gabbana for toddlers - adorable Minnie is wreaking havoc everywhere she goes, from Harrods to her own christening. Her favorite word is “MINE!” and her penchant for Balenciaga bags, Chanel sunglasses, and online purchases has no rival under age five.
Becky is at her wits end. On top of this, she and her husband Luke are still living with her parents. Thankfully, it appears house buying attempt number four is a go! Until a huge financial crisis causes panic everywhere, and nobody wants to shop - not Becky’s personal shopping clientele, not her friends, nobody. And with Luke in the doldrums, it’s time for Becky to step in - with a party: A surprise birthday party for Luke (on a budget) is the perfect antidote to everyone’s woes. At first....

I'm So Embarrassed!

Ok, I give in. I admit it. I'm a Shopaholic Junkie. I know ... it's chick lit, but I can't help it. I'm in love with Becky. She makes me laugh out loud. Her convoluted sense of reality and her warped values are winning character flaws that make her my guilty pleasure. Obviously, in my more sane moments, I realize that no one could be as stupid as Becky's husband, Luke. He falls for her twisted logic every time. In reality, at best he would never have married her and at worst he'd be out the door at the first sign of her outrageous justifications. But I hope he never figures her out.. I say Long live Becky and Sophie Kinsella!

Bring back Emily Gray!

Love Sophie Kinsella and am loving the audiobook so far, but really dread hearing Rosalyn Landor read anything! She's just not a good fit, in my opinion, with Becky. The first audiobooks narrated by Emily Gray were great - she should've done every Shopaholic book!!
