Becky Brandon's life is blooming. She's working at London's newest big store, The Look, house-hunting with husband Luke (her secret wish is a Shoe Room) . . . and she's pregnant. She couldn't be more overjoyed--especially after discovering that shopping cures morning sickness. Everything has to be perfect for her baby: from the designer nursery and the latest stroller to top-of-the-line medical care.

But when the must-have celebrity obstetrician Becky's been so desperate to see turns out to be Luke's glamorous, intellectual ex-girlfriend, Becky's perfect world starts to crumble. She's shopping for two . . . but are there three in her marriage?

Praise for Sophie Kinsella and Shopaholic & Baby

"From sonograms to the hottest baby strollers to tricked-out birthing rooms . . . Kinsella's ode to baby blues is both sly and slapstick." -- Publishers Weekly

"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

"Kinsella's heroine is blessed with the resilience of ten women, and her damage-limitation brain waves are always good for a giggle." -- Glamour (U.K.)

"As fun as a shopping spree." -- Entertainment Weekly

A nice easy read that is perfect for sitting outside and enjoying the summertime.

If you haven't read the prior Shopaholic books, start at the beginning if possible.

I'm not a shopaholic or even brand-conscious, but still find Becky a fun character to root for. She creates chaos with her shopping addiction, relationship insecurities, and career challenges but somehow ends up rescuing herself and those around her.

The character has some similarities to Rachel Green (Jennifer Aniston) on the Friends TV show. Becky is financially inept, lacks common sense and appears self-centred. However, she is a very loyal and good friend to those in her inner circle.

amusing, sometimes hard to believe someone is so self absorbed and clueless

A patron review from the Adult Summer Game: "This was a very enjoyable read that had me laughing out loud at parts of the book."

Not bad, the main character, Becky, is as infuriating as ever but like the rest of the books in the Shopaholic series she eventually learns something.
