Sophie Kinsella has dazzled readers with her irresistible Shopaholic novels—sensational international bestsellers that have garnered millions of devoted fans and catapulted her into the first rank of contemporary storytellers. Now her beloved heroine Becky Brandon (née Bloomwood) returns in a hilarious tale of married life, toddlerhood, and the perils of trying to give a fabulous surprise party—on a budget!

Becky Brandon 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. Two-year-old Minnie has a quite different approach to shopping.

Minnie creates havoc everywhere she goes, from Harrods to her own christening. Her favorite word is “Mine!” and she’s even trying to get into eBay! 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 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?

    " How can you not love Becky and all her craziness? These books always make me laugh and smile. A great vacation on the the beach read!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robin | 2/16/2014

    " I love Sophie Kinsella but honestly, her Becky Brandon (nee Bloomwood) stresses me out. The constant shopping and using Mimi's personal spending $$ for the next 30 years...really??!?? I know it's the character but arrgghh...stresses this banker out. Still, easy read or actualy listen to as I listened to CD's to and from Charleston. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tiffany | 2/7/2014

    " I took a break from these books for a while and when I passed by them at the library I was excited for a fun read, but was really disappointed. It's all the same thing and the thought of spending so much money actually made me a little sick this time. I wonder how I would feel about the other books if I were to reread them again right now. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Elsa | 2/3/2014

    " Terrible! The daughter is so annoying! But why did I keep reading? Because it's trashy, and so therefore addictive. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Miranda | 2/1/2014

    " Same as the other Shopaholic books - easy to read, funny, lacking substance, but entertaining enough. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Desislava | 1/30/2014

    " Becky is an unforgettable character. She is amazing , funny, always capable of resolving situations, I will miss her. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carroll | 1/25/2014

    " Although I am a big Shopaholic fan, the total brattiness of little Minnie and the inability of Becky to recognize the fact that her child is so unlikable grates on my nerves. Hubby Luke continues to adore Becky while all along seeing through her which also seems that eventually that too would end. Big fan of Shopaholic books but somehow when motherhood is involved not so entertaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda | 10/26/2013

    " Typical shopaholic book....definitely a light read. As usual the escapades of Rebecca Brandon are relatively unrealistic, yet still very humorous. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa Baggett | 10/20/2013

    " Even fictitious consumerism makes me nervous, but I can't help enjoy it everytime Shopaholic faces my worst fear--being broke and in debt--and everything works out in the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenny | 9/29/2013

    " Loved it, the ending was such a surprise! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandhya | 9/27/2013

    " Not much "shopaholic" in this one! But good one.. Enjoyed it all the way through. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristin | 1/21/2013

    " I have read most of the books from this series.. Hysterical & quick easy fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Catherine | 1/8/2013

    " Very light, fast, funny book. Enjoyable without unnecessary drama. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vanessa | 10/21/2012

    " I love this book! I am a huge fan of Sophie Kinsella and this book was another good read for me. I cannot get enough of Rebecca and her crazy adventures and antics. I cannot wait until her new book. At the end I was left with a cliffhanger which I'm more than sure indicates a new book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 mellyana | 7/7/2012

    " Just another shopaholic series. Easy reading to kill time on the plane. One note, I don't think the title "mini" is suitable, it's more like birthday-bash shopaholic and how convenience it is to have someone that rich around us. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mindi | 6/13/2012

    " At times slow, but as always ends with a laugh. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sabrina | 4/21/2012

    " Not a bad book, but this series should have ended with the last book "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen Farnham | 7/16/2011

    " Fun. Light hearted quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy | 5/23/2011

    " The books in the Shopaholic series are always a quick, fun read for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannon Lunsford | 12/9/2010

    " As always, I loved hearing the Becky Bloomwood Saga. I did find her spoiling of Mini and Mini's behavior annoying at times but the ending made up for it. I'm excited to hear what happens with Elanore and California living. Becky in Beverlly Hills should be hilarious. "
