Publisher's Summary

Becky Brandon (nee Bloomwood) is pregnant! She couldn't be more overjoyed, especially since discovering that shopping cures morning sickness. Everything has got to be perfect for her baby, from the designer nursery, to the latest, coolest pram, to the celebrity, must-have obstetrician.

But when the celebrity obstetrician turns out to be her husband Luke's glamorous, intellectual ex-girlfriend, Becky's perfect world starts to crumble. She's shopping for two, but are there three in her marriage?

Shop therapy: don't miss more in the Shopaholic series.

©2007 Sophie Kinsella; (P)2007 Books on Tape

What the Critics Say

"Through it all, Becky never loses her spark, making this fifth entry in the Shopaholic series every bit as delightful and hilarious as its predecessors." (Booklist)

    "JUST LOVED IT!"

    This book is one of Sophie Kinsella's finest....I was a bit worried after the 4th book, Shopaholic and Sister, but this book came through...I didn't want it to end! I hope she keeps right on going with this series...

    "Chaos, Muddles and a Baby"

    Rosalyn Landor is a gold star narrator. Maybe, I am just a softy for lovely low British accents. Rebecca Brandon nee Bloomwood is a woman who loves being a woman. She thinks fate dealt her a splendid hand. It would not occur to her to envy or resent the opposite sex for anything. She loves the man she married and the life she leads. Now she finds herself pregnant. Some women crave pickles and ice cream, for Rebecca it is shopping for designer baby things. Oh yes, all men love going shopping especially for baby things. Not! Poor Luke, I rolled my eyes with him. I love her entanglements and especially her disentanglements. The scene at the delivery room is priceless! Rebecca doesn't lie but occasionally, she fails to give complete answers or provide relevant information in a timely manner. She always knows when she is not playing straight and is usually filled with self recriminations. These less admirable instances occur usually when she is trapped, ashamed or acts to prevent pain to a loved one. i.e. One wouldn't tell the girlfriend the outfit she has spent the day buying and is now modeling is hideous even if it is. My answer is pat: It is lovely dear, it brings out the color of your beautiful eyes. Further, when we go somewhere to show off her new things, I only see the woman and smile. Why bother with facts if they would cause pain? Besides Luke Brandon is no dummy. He knows Rebecca and when she is hiding something. If this is the way they wish to conduct their married life then who am I to stick in my oar? Besides, many of the humorous situations wouldn't come about if Rebecca was always a Girl's Scout. We men are very forgiving of the foibles of a beautiful and adorable woman. I offer Mr. George Knightley and Miss Emma Woodhouse as star witnesses. At the end of the day, Rebecca always does the right thing and is not a selfish being, only impulsive. I like her. I think her baby will too.

    "Must Read! Hillarious!"

    I loved this one! I was in tears of laughter during the first 20 minutes! Referred it to my friends (especially the pregnant ones) who've read the other books in the series. Even though the narrator has changed, you focus on Becky and her antics. Can't wait to see where Becky goes next.

    "Good book, bad narration"

    I agree with the above review -- Emily Grey is Becky. I don't like the new narrator. "Suzie" throws me off too, and this narrator sounds much too formal. Emily Grey had Becky's flightiness down perfectly. The different pronounciation of Arcodus (Arc-a-dus in the previous book, Ar-code-us in this one) riles me too. Didn't this reviewer listen to previous books? Please go back to Emily Grey!

    "Typical Becky Bloomwood"

    If you like the Becky Brandon (nee Bloomwood) character, you'll like this book too. I will say that I've listened to ALL of the Shopaholic books over the last few months and I'd recommend spreading them out over a longer period of time. I loved the first few but by the time this one finished I'd have enough of Becky. All in all though the whole series is entertaining in a mindless sort of "pass the time" way and has Becky worming her way out of some pretty funny and often ridiculous antics. I did getquite a few laughs out of it.

    Story
    "SOLD!"
    If you could sum up Shopaholic & Baby in three words, what would they be?

    Narrator? + Suzie? + SOLD!I thought for sure that:1. (one of my favorite narrators) Roslyn Landor, who I thought would have a much, much older voice than Becky would have!2. Suze being called Suzie would be too unsettlingbut, once again, these original distractions became meaningless as my love for this wonderful story and the narration turned into pure - well - FAB!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Everything, but for some reason it was nice to have a little less focus on shopping.And... things like this... " BECKY'S ONLINE BANK FOR GIRLS" get me laughing out-right!


    What does Rosalyn Landor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Better man voices. Excitement. More intelligent, down-to-earth Becky.

    "Loved the entire series!"
    Would you listen to Shopaholic & Baby again? Why?

    I normally don't listen to books a second time.


    What does Rosalyn Landor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    When you read a book it's difficult to hear or feel what the character it trying to communicate. I loved that Rosalyn read the entire series. I don't like when they change narrator mid series.l

    "Cute"

    Cute story. Would have enjoyed a little more twists and turns perhaps. This seemed the most mild of the Shopaholics...

    "Fun, Fun, Fun!!!"

    I read all of the previous shopaholic books the old fashioned way. This was the first I listened to. I loved the narrator! This was the perfect book to listen to while lying on the beach.
