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?

"Chock-full of the charming antics and asides that made the first two installments hilarious best sellers." (Booklist)
"Third time's the charm." (Kirkus Reviews)
I call this a page turner even though it is not a mystery because I never wanted to turn off my MP3 player. I absolutely loved this book !!!! I loved Becky, her accent, her neighbor Danny, her job and her family. I identify with her in many ways, like day dreaming about what "might" happen instead of accepting what "will" happen. I spent alot of time thinking about how Becky could "fix things" but the way things did turn out was even better than anythin I could dream up. As funny as this may sound, I almost think of Becky as a friend now.
absolutely amazaing how all 3 books that tell the story of Becky Bloomwood never fails in their entertainment; if you have read the 1st, you will definitely enjoy the 2nd & 3rd
I LOVE the Shopaholic series! Once I get started, I can't put them down! However, I found this particular one to drag on a little too long. I still enjoyed it, but would have enjoyed it more had it been shorter.
You don't get this book for the mental stimulation or spiritual growth, but it is a fun read with a nice ending. If you like the others, you'll probably like this one, too.
I've been a fan of the Shopaholic series for about six months now. I thoroughly enjoyed both Confessions of a Shopaholic and Shopaholic Takes Manhattan, but I didn't want to wait another six months for the pocket book edition of Shopaholic Ties the Knot.
Therefore, I decided to opt for the audiobook version. The book itself is great, as good as the first 2 titles in the series. Emily Grey does a great job as a narrator and in playing the role of Becky. My only qualm is that the audiobook's publisher should have hired a man to play the male characters. Emily Grey's reading of characters like Luke is laughable at best.
Nevertheless, I recommend this audiobook for fans of the series.
The narrator's ability to give a stale story some life
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.
Yes, I have. It was another of Sophie K's shopaholic books. It was equally good.
This story is not led by memorable characters. It just goes on until the anti-climactic end.
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.
It's a great audio performance, well done.
Becky Bloomwood is charming and lovable. The story is somewhat predictable but entertaining.
Tons of them!
Becky, of course!
I love that Becky finally gets married and has someone who loves her
The other shopaholic series, we just get more of Beckys life
Suz's wedding. It was so funny I was laughing out loud
Not really just a nice reading
Listens while running
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.
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.)
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.
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.
This book was amazing! If you enjoyed the first two Shopaholic books, then you will most certainly enjoy this one. There is a touch of a bit more romance in this edition (hence the title of the novel), yet, I enjoyed every moment of it. Becky and Luke make an awesome couple and the organization and planning done for both of the weddings was hilarious! What happens at the end? I'm not going to say. Just purchase this book cause it is well worth your money!
Becky and Luke make an awesome couple and the organization and planning done for both of the weddings was hilarious!
Of course it makes me laugh a lot...
"Very Similar to the first book"
I loved the first book of Shopaholic series. This was too predictable, it felt like i was reading the 1st book again in most part of the book. There are some parts was funny but not many. it was boring
"Silly but a giggle"
I completely agree with the previous reviewer. The book did get silly at times and I did get frustrated with Becky but it also made me laugh out loud on the train and was generally a good listen. Narrated beautifully by Emily Gray
"Feel Good Book"
Number 3 of the shopaholic series and I really enjoyed this book, although it got really silly in parts it is overall a good listen and makes you feel good.
