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.

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)

    "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.

    "Always a good laugh."

    I love the character in this book even when she is driving me to distraction with her quirky antics. Makes you laugh no matter how you look at it because she always see's more to the picture than could ever be possibly there.
    Good book Sophie did it again.

    "Good Book, Bad Narrator"

    As all the Shopaholic Series that's really fun and entretaining but I don´t like the narrator, her voice sound too old to be Becky! I seariously prefer the Confessions of a Shopaholic & shopaholic takes Manhattan narrator.

    I love to listen to well-written, well-researched books. Time is too valuable to waste on anything less, not to mention our credits and $$$!

    "Absolutely FAB!"

    This is the BEST Shopaholic ever. Rosalyn Landor is the perfect narrator for this book, and should be on a very short list for narrating the (hopefully) NEXT in the series. If you love the Shopaholic books, this one is FAB! Get it today!

    "Not the same - still good"

    If you love Becky this one won't disappoint. My only complaint would be the narration. Although it was very good, after listening to the first 3 Shopaholics Emily Gray was Becky to me. I really missed her on this one as I did with Shopaholic & Sister. I also found the pronunciation of "Suze" rather annoying. In the other books it's "Sues", in this one "Suzie". It's a small thing but it really distracted me. Overall fun listen with good narration, just not the same Becks I've grown to love.

    "Another shopaholic adventure"

    Always bring a smile to my face, and the narrator is spot on on how I would imagine their voices too. Pleasant to listen too..

    "Nit picking, but..."

    I love the story line. Great for my 2hr commute everyday.

    However, I hate that the narrator keeps changing. Why would an author or publishing house allow that. It's cring-worthy when you're binge listening to have the voice change of your favorite characters.

    AND this narrator keeps calmly Suz "Suzy" - argh!! Super annoying. Luke sounds like some old stuffy British guy. Disappointing.

    "Fab book with a talented but ill-fitting narrator"

    The book was delightful (as are all Kinsella's titles--extremely workout-worthy!!), but the narrator, though I LOVE her in other British books I have heard, is way too old to play the voice of Becky B. She made her sound very middle-aged and masculine, and ALL the men sound the same- LuKe and all the rich guys sound identical, while the dudes from the poor side of London all had the exact same voice, too, so in one scene where they all end up in a room together, I couldn't tell any of them apart, lol. The worst was poor Becky, though--I kept picturing her as a 45 year-old, thanks to this narrator's deep, husky voice. I sure hope that subsequent titles go back to using the narrators with brighter, younger-sounding voices that fit Becky's personality!!

    "Lives up to the Shopaholic Standards"

    This was my first time listening to one of the Shopaholic books, and I loved it! Rosalyn (the reader) kept me thoroughly enthralled from beginning to end, just as I would have been had I actually been reading the book myself. Very well done!!!!!

    "Not too pleased with Rosalyn Landor's interpretation."

    I don't care for the voices and intonation this reader has applied to the characters. Also, I know it's ridiculous but I'm having a difficult time even listening to this since the reader keeps mispronouncing Suze's name! It's "Sooz" not "Suzy"!
