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?

True to fun form
This book is great. My big complaint is the narrator. I really wish that they had stayed with Emily Gray as narrator. Being a huge fan of the voice of Becky that Emily created, it was almost impossible to listen to this. I think the narrator's voice is way too old sounding for Becky. I know that she didn't do the next one in the series either. I hope should Sophie Kinsella write anymore that they go back to Emily as the voice and embodiment of the beloved Becky.
Another Great One!
I hope Sophie Kinsella can keep up with my appetite for this series. Her audiobooks keep me on the treadmill at the gym and out of trouble on long airplane flights. This one was just as good as the rest, after I got over the narrator change. Now, I 'm off to the next one, Shopholic and Baby....then what will I do?
Best of the Series!
I have a daily 2 hour commute for a job I love. I've listened to the other Shopaholic books (all Unabridged versions... they have to last for at least a week, you know), and by far this recording is the most fun I've had. The narrator is enthusiastic, and her voice changes are slight, undisruptive, and completely different for each character. It was a change from the past narrator, but once you get into the 4th chapter, you really love the quality of this recording. The story itself can't be better. I've actually sat in my car for an extra few minutes after I've arrived at work to listen to the story a little bit longer. I can't wait for the next audiobook!
