What's a round-the-world honeymoon if you can't buy the odd souvenir to ship back home? Like the Chinese urns and 20 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?

Sophie Kinsella's books just get better and better. She is my favorite author. I just can't seem to get enough of them. I hope to hear more fun stories about Becky and Luke, and all of the other wonderful characters in Becky's life. My only disappointment was that Emily Grey didn't narrate this book, as she had the others (even though this narrator did a great job) it just wasn't quite the same. I hope that there will be more books, very soon! Thank you, Sophie Kinsella, YOU ARE A COMPLETE STAR!
Was Becky always this shallow? I'd forgotten as it has been some time since I'd read one of these books. Always good for a laugh though ~ there are some hilarious laugh out loud parts to this book.
The narrator failed to pause between chapters sometimes which made it seem as though the book was jumping around.
