Becky Brandon (née Bloomwood) thought motherhood would be a breeze and that having a daughter was a dream come true a shopping friend for life! But it’s trickier than she thought as two-year-old Minnie has a quite different approach to shopping.
She can create havoc everywhere from Harrods to Harvey Nicks to her own christening. She hires taxis at random, her favourite word is Mine, and she’s even started bidding for designer bags on eBay.
On top of everything else, there s a big financial crisis. People are having to Cut Back including all of Becky’s personal shopping clients and she and Luke are still living with Becky’s Mum and Dad. To cheer everyone up, Becky decides to throw a surprise birthday party on a budget but then things become really complicated.
Who will end up on the naughty step, who will get a gold star and will Becky’s secret wishes come true?
I love the cover
Becky Brandon(neé Bloomwood) got on my nerves a lot. She’s very selfish and self-involved in the beginning. Plus her annoying, incessant and unnecessary lies.
I wish there was more Luke in the book and Minnie is an annoying child.
I’ve read every book in the Shopaholic series now and this is my least favourite one.
Becky was too childish. I don’t get why she kept on lying and was forcing Luke’s secretary to ask him personal stuff.
Other than that, I enjoyed the book. its usual Kinsella. The perfect chick lit and humour story.
