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 soulmate. 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?

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mrs. Lahti | 2/18/2014

    " A friend recommended this book to me, and I found it to be an entertaining escape novel. It had me laughing out loud. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heidi Marleau | 2/14/2014

    " See the first Shopaholic book for a review. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristen | 2/14/2014

    " While these are totally mindless and have rather questionable language at moments, they crack me up. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Betsy Santos | 2/13/2014

    " I'm over this book series but there is only one more. I feel an obligation to start what I finish. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diane | 2/5/2014

    " touching ending, sacrifice for your sister :) "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 kt | 2/3/2014

    " Seriously? Why can't I stop reading these books. I hate me. And them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Darcy Cagen | 1/29/2014

    " 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! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anna | 1/28/2014

    " Out of the three Shopaholic books I've read thus far, this is by far the best in my opinion. It's super funny, fast paced, quirky, and just plain good fun reading material. I enjoyed this book more than the others due to the fact that Becky's catastrophes weren't blown out of proportion and dragged out to kingdom come, thus making them more realistic. After almost not finishing "Shopaholic Ties the Knot" I felt a little nervous about starting the next installment, but I was pleasantly surprised. I even liked it so much I managed to finish it in one sitting. Here's to hoping Kinsella can continue her quality of writing onto the next books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brandy | 1/19/2014

    " This was the 4th book. This one was ok - the whole thing with her sister was kind of weird. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Linda | 1/16/2014

    " A silly story. The protagonist is a caricature and quite annoying. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heide | 1/11/2014

    " listened to this on CD. light. funny. well-paced. friend recommended that i start with the first in the series: Can you keep a Secret?. will do. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nessa | 1/11/2014

    " Ms.Bloomwood and yoga..hmmm nice story about this part...you can try to forget your "shopaholic" with YOGA...:D "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle Guffey | 1/7/2014

    " I have to finish the series- this one was funny too, but I liked her 1st ones better. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marcia Oster | 12/26/2013

    " Definitely didn't fit the shopaholics series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Merja Pohjola | 12/9/2013

    " If clothes and accessories were books and DVD's... I would soooo recognize myself here. Good, innocent fun :-) Love these books, have to read them all ;) (But I WILL NOT buy them but go to the library LOL) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie | 12/5/2013

    " Shopaholic is back and I enjoyed the continuing story. Okay, maybe a bit recycled and maybe Becky should really get a reality check and curb the lying -- but, this is a character and a series that you will either enjoy or not. I enjoy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nisha Patel | 12/4/2013

    " Very slow in the beginning, then gradually it picked up! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tacey | 9/29/2013

    " Fun and funny. The situations Becky gets herself into are always so hilarious. She's like the Lucille Ball of British chick lit. But everything always works out in the end! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Elsa | 9/19/2013

    " Didn't like this one as much. The thing is, once this series has a hold on you, you can't stop. It's sort of addictive in that way. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ashleigh | 9/8/2013

    " cute beach read. lighthearted and funny. like reading about an old friend who makes the same mistakes over and over. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tiana | 6/14/2013

    " Best Shopaholic book so far. I laughed, I even cried... and I'm downright terrified to see Becky as a mother. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amelia | 10/17/2012

    " Sophie Kinsella has a light, funny writing style that makes her books easy to read, and hard to put down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jacinta Sheridan | 9/5/2012

    " I too hate shopping! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tammy | 5/6/2012

    " Becky Bloomwood finds out she has a sister and is over the moon. She imagines all the amazing things they can do together and all they will have in common, which turns out to be practically nothing. This book is hilarious and Becky is as much of a lovable bumbling idiot as usual! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Denise | 4/17/2012

    " Yet another witty book from Sophie Kinsella "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenna Bradshaw smith | 3/26/2012

    " I am enjoying this series very much but it is getting a little old. Becky is up to her same old stuff. But of course I am going to finish the series! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jacquie | 1/23/2012

    " Very as well but kind of got tired of the series after this. But still enjoyable for complete entertainment nothing else. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathy Spicer | 11/29/2011
