Publisher's Summary

Hot off the success of her best-selling Can You Keep a Secret?, Sophie Kinsella delivers another hilarious Becky Bloomwood novel. When last we left Becky Brandon (nee Bloomwood), she and Luke had just married and she'd unveiled her big honeymoon surprise...around-the-globe plane tickets. World-weary 10 months later, the newlyweds return home filled with excitement to share the details of their amazing escapades.

But their arrival brings a different sort of homecoming, as Becky discovers some unbelievable news: she has a sister. Okay, a half-sister, but a sister nonetheless. Someone to share with, to have manicures with, to shop with! But, can it be, that Becky's long-lost sister hates to shop? Hates to spend, really. And is fascinated by rocks...not diamonds.

    "Irritating and Unbelievable"

    I loved listening to past Shopaholic books. They were funny and entertaining - good, light listening. I felt irritable and bothered throughout most of this book - irritated with Becky's seemingless endless credit limit (really? the amount of things she bought on a year-long honeymoon?) and her drive to be sisters and friends with this ungrateful, boring, negative woman.

    Story
    "strange twists"
    Where does Shopaholic & Sister rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    probably lower down the list. But still interesting


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The sister.


    Any additional comments?

    I still love Becky. As silly as she is, she gets into the weirdest situations, yet can get out of them, and still come out ahead. Altho. you would think, some day will she learn???

    Hi all. I'm in my 50's (that's relevant, i think), and I favor fiction. I like the british sensibility, and was introduced to the Forsyte Saga through audible ... loved it! I happen to also like Chinese writers, but they are not well represented yet at audible. Looking to follow readers with similar tastes ...

    "good for the 20-ish set"

    cute story ... don't bother, though, if you're older than 20-something. the narration is very good.

    "Love the story hate the narrator"

    The only reason I did not give this book all 5 stars was because of the lack luster narration. Ms. Bailey's voice is tiresome, monotone, and most of all just sounds too mature for Becky's character. Aside from that the story line is very well written, in the same Becky fashion. If you've enjoyed other Shopaholic books you will enjoy this one too, if you can get past the narration.

    "First of the Series I Liked"

    I totally disagree with everyone who thinks that Emily Grey was the better narrator. This is the first of the series that I laughed out loud and actually liked Becky. I HATED her in the first three books because the narrator portrayed her so whiny and dithering.

    "Great Listen,"

    As usual, Sophie Kinsella has written an adorable book. Interesting, funny and sweet she has written another shopaholic book and managed to include the adorable personality we all love while still creating a totally new story. I loved it, all of the shopaholic books are worth listening to.

    "Where is Emily Gray"

    I've thoroughly enjoyed listening to Emily Gray narrate and BE Becky Bloomwood. I'm sorry to see she does not return. The story itself is still fun and typical Becky.

    Emily Gray made Becky's character so fun and alive. She made it easy to forgive Becky when you know you should really want to ring Becky's neck.

    This narrator is pleasant to hear, she's just not the Becky I've become used to picturing in my imagination.

    "Raspy voiced reader"

    I really did not like the narrator. She just did not portray Becky as convincingly and at times it was difficult to determine the switch of characters because the narration was not well done. I'd still stick with Emily Gray or Katherine Kellgren.

    "Really liked the narrator"

    I was skeptical to listen to the fourth book because it was a different reader than the previous books. I ended up liking her as much, if not more. The story took some time to get into but became my favorite of the shopaholic stories.

    "My lease favorite so far"

    I love all of the previous books in the series but I was pretty annoyed with Becky in this story. She was really spoiled and I had to question why Luke claimed to be in love with her. I need a break from Becky for now so i won't be reading Shopaholic and Baby just yet.
