Publisher's Summary

Life has been good for Becky Bloomwood: She's become the best personal shopper at Barneys, she and her successful entrepreneurial boyfriend, Luke, are living happily in Manhattan's West Village, and her new next-door neighbor is a fashion designer! But with her best friend, Suze, engaged, how can Becky fail to notice that her own ring finger is bare? Not that she's been thinking of marriage (or diamonds) or anything.

Then Luke proposes! Bridal registries dance in Becky's head. Problem is, two other people are planning her wedding: Becky's overjoyed mother has been waiting forever to host a backyard wedding, with the bride resplendent in Mum's frilly old gown. While Luke's high-society mother is insisting on a glamorous, all-expenses-paid affair at the Plaza. Both weddings for the same day. And Becky can't seem to turn down either one. Can everyone's favorite shopaholic tie the knot before everything unravels?

    Story
    "FINALLY A Shopaholic That Reflects Kinsella-Great!"
    Where does Shopaholic Ties the Knot rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is fun...the previous two books were frustrating and reflected our current entitlement society.

    This one was pure fantasy (wedding at the Plaza), private jet flights, etc.


    What other book might you compare Shopaholic Ties the Knot to and why?

    I enjoy Kinsella and would only compare to the lesser liked (Shopaholic Takes Manhattan).

    I'd rather recommend Can You Keep a Secret? or I've Got Your Number-
    FANTASTIC, FABULOUS, laugh out loud reads!!!


    Which character – as performed by Emily Gray – was your favorite?

    Becky Bloomwood-Emily nails it and every character every time.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There were a few giggles.

    Story
    "Predictable story saved by good narration"
    What did you love best about Shopaholic Ties the Knot?

    The narrator's ability to give a stale story some life


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I think I can't recall the most interesting part. But the least interesting part may be the wedding in NY at the end. I expected more ingenuity in getting herself out of the "two-wedding" trouble. But I shouldn't have had my hopes high for this book in the first place.

    Most of Sophie K's books follow more or less similar story lines, I think.


    Have you listened to any of Emily Gray’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, I have. It was another of Sophie K's shopaholic books. It was equally good.


    Who was the most memorable character of Shopaholic Ties the Knot and why?

    This story is not led by memorable characters. It just goes on until the anti-climactic end.


    Any additional comments?

    Unless you have some credits or cash to spare for some mindless entertainment, save your money and spend it somewhere else. There are many more worthy audiobooks out there!

    But once more, I emphasize that the narration is good. It was story that I didn't like. I don't know what I was thinking buying two shopaholics.

    Story
    "Definitely worth it, but not as good as the first"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Shopaholic Ties the Knot to be better than the print version?

    It's a great audio performance, well done.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Becky Bloomwood is charming and lovable. The story is somewhat predictable but entertaining.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Tons of them!


    If you could take any character from Shopaholic Ties the Knot out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Becky, of course!

    "Finally a wedding"
    What did you love best about Shopaholic Ties the Knot?

    I love that Becky finally gets married and has someone who loves her

    The other shopaholic series, we just get more of Beckys life


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Suz's wedding. It was so funny I was laughing out loud


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not really just a nice reading

    Story
    "Becky is getting tiring here"
    What did you love best about Shopaholic Ties the Knot?

    Emily Gray's narration is wonderful, and the conclusion to this book--for me--paid off. The exploration of the Elinor/Luke relationship was pretty interesting.


    If you’ve listened to books by Sophie Kinsella before, how does this one compare?

    Shopaholic Ties the Knot is in line with the previous shopaholic books, but Becky is slightly less sympathetic here for me. It's the first time I've really had a hard time suspending disbelief on her. (Though I will point out she's better in the next book.)


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

    Emily Gray just gets Becky Bloomwood. I'm listening to Mini Shopaholic now, and Rosalyn Landor, while talented, simply doesn't compare. I read Shopaholic and Sister on my own, and I could hear Gray over every line. Her character interpretation is superb.

    "Poorly read!"

    This would have been an entertaining "read" but the reader was a snooze. Her predictable speech patterns for each character made the story dull and the pitch of her voice was at times irritating. Her monotone male characters were dreadfully portrayed. Skip this one.

    "Not as good as the first ones"

    Since of course she is getting a bit more mature in this story, it wasn't as fun as the other ones. I still enjoyed it though.
