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
    "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.

    "Not my cup of tea."

    I found our shopaholic irritating. The jacket called it a fun romp, I couldn't make myself finsh the book (the only time this has happened).

    "Wonderful even the second time 'round"

    I had previously read this book, but after listening to "Shopaholic and Baby" wanted more of Becky Bloomwood Brandon. This audiobook didn't disappoint. I thought that Emily Gray was a perfect narrator.

    "LOVED IT!!"

    I absolutely love this series and this one was soooo funny. Yes you want to scream at her for her stupidity but it is so funny. I love the narrator as well. She really has found Becks!!
