OUT NOW the new Sunday Times bestseller from Sophie Kinsella: CHRISTMAS SHOPAHOLIC
ALSO AVAILABLE the irresistible new stand-alone novel: LOVE YOUR LIFE
Kinsella brings the irrepressible Becky Bloomwood Brandon back for a seventh time (after Mini Shopaholic) in this latest installment of her hilarious Shopaholic series. Becky's public relations guru husband, Luke, has just started to represent Hollywood A-lister Sage Seymour, so Becky, Luke, and their daughter, Minnie, are off to Los Angeles where Becky's convinced it'll all be red carpets and movie-star sightings. After a personal shopping job falls through, Becky decides to become a celebrity stylist and wants Sage to be her first client. Sage's interest level is low until Becky gets involved with Sage's rival, Lois Kellerton. In between her own dramas, Becky is forced to deal with those of others including her father's and her best friend Suze's. And there's even an old nemesis who may have changed her ways or not. It's impossible not to fall in love with Becky and her antics, and this latest offering doesn't disappoint. With appeal for fans of Kinsella's prior Shopaholic books, this one will draw in new fans as well. Like the first six in the series, this new entry is screamingly funny and lots of fun.
While it was a good read, it was distressing seeing Becky fall so far from her usual values. I understand how she did because of location and people around and yes men etc and how she changed and why because it was everything playing on her natural weaknesses but it was so sad and at times hard to read. I absolutely hated not knowing it was a Part 1 book. I was not prepared and feel let down by that. Because now I have to wait. I will reread this when the next book comes out so it's like one long story.
Do not buy this book until it is in the dollar shop
There is hardly any story to this, possibly if the next bit was included you could call it a book, but really just setting the scene for presumably the next one. If you miss this one from series you won't miss much. What a waste of money and time. I would have put zero stars if I could.
I have loved each and every one of Sophie Kinsella's books, especially the shopoholic series, I felt that this book was incomplete. Very disappointing for the price.
