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.

    "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.

    "Cant wait to get the next one!"

    I didnt care for the Shopaholic books at first, but now that the story line has developed more I am quite into them. I am eager to get the the next book.

    "Shopaholic & Sister"

    Although I still liked the story in the this one I didn't care for the narrator as much as the one who did the first two and it kind of took some of the enjoyment out of it for me. I thought her voice sounded a lot older (therefore too experienced in life) which I didn't think was suitable to the for the Becky character.

    "Had me in stitches and tears"

    I really enjoyed this fourth "Becky" book, I thought I'd be fed up and at times you do say to yourself 'come on, Becky! Straighten up" but it's funny and I cried all the way home one day when she found herself at loose ends and her world falling apart. some reviewers say she never learns from her mistakes, but I think this book shows she does learn something. Can't wait for the Baby book.

    "Maybe Becs Should call it a day!"

    I really thought this would be funny as I like the other Shopaholic books. But, this was really bad. Of course, Becks does really foolish things but it just really isn't that funny anymore or maybe she has changed since she got married. I think Sophie should stop with the series. The first book Confessions of a Shopaholic was entertaining and was a fun book to take your mind off of work, etc.

    I would stick to the first two or three books in the series..and Can you Keep a Secret!

    "Did Not Disappoint"

    After reading several other reviews, I was afraid that 3 was the charm (3 prior books in the series) and I would not enjoy this book. I had also listened to the sample audio, and am ashamed to say at first I thought the narrators voice sounded too old for the part, however I could not resist and dived right in. I do think the narrator did an excellent job. This book was just as funny, clever and witty as the first 3 books in the series I just can't believe the pleasure I received from listening to the entire Shopaholic series. I might have to re-listen to them all. I hope there are more to come in the future.

    "Not as good as the others"

    Maybe I'm getting a little tired of Becky Bloomwood. I realized I don't like this reader as well as Kate Redding. It gets to the point where you want to say - "Becky, just take a stand and be yourself!"

    "The least appealing shopaholic"

    I was once a fan of Shopaholic and I like Shopaholic Takes Manhattan most. Yet Becky this time goes too far. She seems never grow up. She keeps finding excuse for her lies and I wonder why everyone forgive her again and again.

    "Rebecca Brandon the Compulsive Liar!"

    I have listened to several Sophia Kinsella books and this one became irritating towards the middle. Rebecca just doesn't seem to learn. She just can't seem to stop with the lies! It was very difficult for me to finish this one. Towards the end it got a little better, but like one other member said... I'm laying off this series for awhile. I already purchased Shopaholic Ties the Knot, but it'll be awhile before I can go through that again. These used to be hilarious, now they are just annoying.
