“Frothy fun . . . Faster than a swiping Visa, more powerful than a two-for-one coupon, able to buy complete wardrobes in a single sprint through the mall—it’s Shopaholic!”—The Washington Post
Becky Brandon thinks that having a daughter is a dream come true: a shopping friend for life! But two-year-old Minnie has a quite different approach to shopping. The toddler creates havoc everywhere she goes, from Harrods to her own christening. On top of everything else, Becky and Luke are still living with her parents (the deal on house #4 has fallen through), when suddenly there’s a huge nationwide financial crisis.
With people having to cut back, Becky decides to throw a surprise party for Luke to cheer everyone up. But when costs start to spiral out of control, she must decide whether to accept help from an unexpected source—and therefore run the risk of hurting the person she loves. Will Becky be able to pull off the celebration of the year? Will she and Luke ever find a home of their own? Will Minnie ever learn to behave? And . . . most important . . . will Becky’s secret wishes ever come true?
BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Sophie Kinsella’s Shopaholic to the Stars and a sneak peek into all of the Shopaholic novels.
Praise for Mini Shopaholic
“A page-turner . . . [Sophie] Kinsella at her most hilarious best.”—Fort Worth Star-Telegram
“Screamingly funny.”—USA Today
In the latest installment to the wildly popular Shopaholic series (Shopaholic and Baby; etc.), Rebecca Brandon returns with willful two-year-old Minnie, who has taken after her mother in her fierce determination and her addiction to luxury brands. When the financial crisis finally hits the Brandon family, Rebecca vows to stop shopping until she's worn everything in her closet at least three times; Luke scrambles for new business directions; and Minnie remains exceptionally difficult. Still, Rebecca wants to throw Luke a surprise birthday bash, but planning it behind his back and on a budget proves almost impossible. As in all previous Shopaholic books, Rebecca is loud and proud about her luxury-brand obsession and equally at ease being a flighty, sometimes annoying lead, though her well-meaning secret birthday mission scores her much-needed points in the sympathy department. Series fans know what to expect and will get it by the Birkin-load. \n
As one of my favorite authors, Kinsella did her job at making me laugh with this one! If you're a mom, you will appreciate this more than someone who doesn't have kids.
Don’t buy it!
I used to be a fan of the series. Read every single book until this one. I could not pass Chapter 6.
Not only the caracter remained the same brainless/ futile version of what women strive NOT to be, but also encourage the same when raising a child.
I can't get enough !
These stories from Sophie Kinsella always capture me everytime I open one. They're not just for adults, i'm 17 & I love ea & every one of her books. This one has got to be one of my absolute faves! <3 love you sophie kinsella ! :)
