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?

    "Page Turner"

    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.

    "Too Long"

    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.

    "Lots of fun..."

    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.

    "Near-perfect audiobook"

    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.

    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.

Can everyone's favorite shopaholic tie the knot before everything unravels?

    "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.

    "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


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

    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

    "Nothing amazing here"
    Any additional comments?

    I did manage to finish it even though I got so annoyed with the main character that I was at the point of stopping. The end was better than I was expecting but if I hadn't been recovering from an operation giving me lots of free time I probably wouldn't have made it through. The main frustration is that Becky doesn't seem to have matured at all from the first two books, has no character progression and doesn't really seem to know how the world works at all.

    If you have enjoyed the first two then it isn't terrible, it just isn't that good.

    "Wonderful book"
    What did you like most about Shopaholic Ties the Knot?

    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!

    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
