Sophie Kinsella has conquered the hearts of millions with her New York Times bestselling Shopaholic novels, which feature the irresistible one-woman shopping phenomenon Becky Bloomwood. Now Becky’s back in a hilarious, heartwarming tale of married life, best friends, and long-lost sisters (and the perils of simply having to own an Angel handbag!).

What’s a round-the-world honeymoon if you can’t buy the odd souvenir to ship back home? Like the Chinese urns and twenty silk dressing gowns Becky found in Hong Kong…the five kilim rugs from Turkey…the splendid hand-carved dining table (and ten chairs) from Sri Lanka…the, um, huge wooden giraffes from Malawi (that her husband Luke expressly forbade her to buy)…

Only now Becky and Luke have returned home to London and Luke is furious. Two truckloads of those souvenirs have cluttered up their usually immaculate loft, and the bills for them are outrageous. Becky’s even maxed out on her second secret credit card, and she doesn’t have a new job yet!

Luke insists she go on a budget. And worse: her beloved best friend Suze has found a new best friend while Becky was away. Becky’s feeling rather blue—when her parents deliver some incredible news. She has a long-lost sister! Becky is thrilled! She’s convinced her sister will be a true soul mate. They’ll go shopping together, drink cappuccinos together, have manicures together, and watch their favorite videos together.

Until she meets Jessica for the first time and gets the shock of her life. Surely Becky Bloomwood’s sister can’t…hate shopping?

    " ... another light hearted easy reading book "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charlotte | 2/9/2014

    " Light and fluffy, perfect for when travelling and under the weather. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ashley Lind | 2/6/2014

    " Good just like kinsella's past but I just wasn't as engaged with this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mandy | 2/5/2014

    " This has been my least favorite out of the series but I still thought it was entertaining enough that I kept reading it. I just felt a little bad for Becky during it because all of the relationships in her life weren't going very well and this time I didn't feel it was all her fault. She just couldn't seem to win no matter how hard she tried. It was a bit discouraging. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Momharper | 1/29/2014

    " I've been obsessed with these books. They're a quick read and very funny. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brends | 1/17/2014

    " Another adventure of Becky. She tried to go away and she did it, and after not informing any of her family, she was found in the mountain with her long lost half-sister, Jess! At first, everything was tough for Bex, because she expected everything to be nice and smooth, but it didn't happened because Jess was a skinflint and Bex was fab. She hates shopping and she loves potatoes, and oh God, was she frugal. She taught Becky a lot of things, especially when it comes to money or saving. She also helped Luke when he ran out of ideas, Jess was also good in computers. What's their similarity? Their cupboard. Only, Becky's cupboard is full of shoes, while Jess has piles of rocks on it, with the lights and the same arrangement. It occurred to Jess that they weren't really sisters because she never undergo a DNA test, she and her aunt only guessed. That lead Bex to be unhappy and go back to London. Sad, because you're in the midst of a country you do not know and you were alone and you don't know who to talk to because your Mum and Dad is in a cruise therapy and your marriage is in tatters and there is no signal to give someone a call. That made me cry, really. In the end, Bex lead a protest and later found out that they are protesting at Luke's big time client, the Arcodas group. Villagers were shocked when they saw Bex and Luke kissed. That was when Luke announced that the Arcodas had their change of plan and are not going to build shopping centers in the area. "

    " The first one was great. The second and third were cute. The rest? Trying too hard. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 1/4/2014

    " The series starts to get a little boring/redundant by this point. Still worth reading, though! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Iris Robinson | 1/2/2014

    " Very good! I like Jess for the most part, but...she does get to you, lol. She's just SO frugal. A good person though. I love Becky's new addiction to eBay...I'm really surprised she didn't discover it earlier...it's totally for her!! Funny book...and I LOVE Kelly! :) "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Robin | 1/1/2014

    " Except for GROSSLY overusing the word, "er," I do not think Kinsella is a terrible writer. However, I hate the idea that there may really be people like this (Becky, Suze, Lulu, Luke, etc.) walking the Earth (and unfortunately procreating). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill | 12/17/2013

    " Ah.. Becky. Your tales are so much fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Camille | 12/16/2013

    " As usual, Rebecca Bloomwood never fails to annoy and amuse me at the same time :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheree | 11/28/2013

    " This is the best book of the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lina Siyam | 11/9/2013

    " Unbelievable..But I like it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Fairlita | 10/5/2013

    " Perhaps I'm prejudiced. I found that I fell asleep only after a few paragraphs, and each time I recommenced, the same thing happened. So I abandoned it. Who knows if I get interested again in the future... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lind0463 | 5/4/2013

    " Girls only - far out! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Spatzile | 11/28/2012

    " The most unlikey companions, become the closest of friends. You can learn from eachother. :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly Simpson | 11/6/2012

    " A very hilarious but touching read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shamsh | 10/11/2012

    " Silly but loads of fun, as usual! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sheri | 7/28/2012

    " OK, not the best of this series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Darcy Cagen | 3/24/2012

    " This book is hilarious! I laughed at least once every chapter! A perfect chic lit book and a great book to bring to the beach! I still think the 3rd Shopaholic book is still the best but Shopaholic and sister is still amazing! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Walker | 11/28/2011

    " I enjoyed this Shopaholic book, because Becky's sister gives a nice contrast to Becky's materialistic, sometimes shallow ways. It's a lovely, fun read for those looking for a quick escape that doesn't involve too much deep thinking. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jenni | 9/22/2011

    " The worst Shopaholic. Felt quite strained, and created unnecessary conflict between L and B. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tamara | 6/10/2011

    " I enjoyed this edition to the Shopaholic series best second only to the first. A fun read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Knitnosh | 5/23/2011

    " A little too fluffy - read this one, but did not even look at the rest of the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anna | 5/21/2011

    " I give it a 3 1/2, It was alright. "

    " LOVED IT! So well written and made me laugh the whole way through! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 5/20/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca | 5/19/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alexandria | 5/17/2011

    " I'm not sure if it was this book that I enjoyed or if it was the fact that it was read to me and some of my room mates as a bed time story. Very enjoyable, funny, honest book. We laughed out loud with every chapter. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Isabella | 5/17/2011

    " I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was an easy read and something that is red purely for entertainment. A good summer vacation read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsey | 5/17/2011

    " Funny, but does the girl EVER LEARN?? That got really annoying. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abrianna | 5/16/2011

    " I thought it showed the true meaning of loving to shop, but also dealing with your problems face on. It made me laugh and revel at how she lived day to day. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Miranda | 5/15/2011

    " Actually I think my 2-star review might pertain more to the movie, which was terrible. The book was a bit more fun and not as bad...but still not good by any stretch. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 5/15/2011

    " I enjoyed this one... the sequels were not as good. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tori | 5/15/2011

    " Not bad, not great. Granted it is a light read chick lit book, but it is so popular, I was expecting more. Truthfully, the main character grated on me after a while. Found myself skimming to get to the end "
