The world’s favourite economically challenged heroine is back… with a small friend in tow…
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 just finished Mini Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella. I had forgotten how much I loved, not only the series, but the characters in general.
Rebecca is hilarious, and I love how she goes off in little tangents while thinking about inane things. Luke is clear headed, and work obsessed, and he reminds me so much of Fifty at times, minus the RRoP. Minnie is adorably written, and while the book isn’t really about her, she’s in it enough to make you forget that fact.
I love that she ended it with a few things unanswered so there’s room for more books. Overall I’d highly recommend this to anyone who has read the first five in the series, and as always, I look forward to more (hopefully) Shopaholic novels.
