Anyone who has read Sophie Kinsella’s Shopoholic series will not want to miss this newest installment after Kinsella took a brief hiatus from Becky to work on other projects.
Becky Brandon (nee Bloomwood) now lives in a little village in England with her darling husband Luke and her young daughter Minnie. She works for her best friend and continues happily to enjoy her true passion…shopping.
When her parents move into a very unconventional neighborhood, Becky decides to host Christmas at her house. Which means not only preparing her place and shopping for gifts, but it means she needs to grant the wishes of her guests, who seem to be multiplying on a daily basis. Her father has a new obsession with avocado and would like a supply on hand at Christmas dinner, her sister is insisting she won’t come unless there is a vegan turkey and of course there are the brussel sprouts.
In the meantime, an old flame of Becky’s has moved into town with his new girlfriend and they have taken an unusual liking to Becky and Luke. And per usual there are misinterpreted goings on with laugh out loud blunders.
Becky’s most comical errors (I truly don’t want to give them all away!) are when she desperately tries to find her husband a Christmas gift and the lengths to which she will go to find her daughter the only gift she wants for Christmas.
And of course thrown into the mix of the story are Becky’s shopping sprees which make for pure delight for the reader.
I read this book with a smile on my face from beginning to I never want it to end. As she goes from one misadventure to another, as she innocently makes major mistakes, you think this book cannot get any funnier and then it does!
