After nearly a decade as a sous-chef in a trendy eatery, Jenna is desperate for a change. She’s supported her ex-husband’s dreams for so long that she can’t even remember her own... until she sees a for-lease sign near her parents’ home and envisions her very own cooking store. Her crash course in business is aided by a streetwise store manager and Jenna’s adoptive mother.

I think I found this under chic lit which is a bit unfair I think. It's really interesting with the different characters and the way they intertwine. Nothing too heavy but a good listen.

With her shopping excesses in check - for now, at least - and her new career as a TV financial adviser blooming, Becky's biggest problem is getting her business-minded boyfriend Luke to take a romantic getaway. But "getaway" takes on a whole new meaning when Luke says he needs to move to New York for business - and he asks Becky to come with him! International best - selling author Sophie Kinsella's sequel to the wildly popular Confessions of a Shopaholic is non-stop fun.

I found the book interesting, kept me interested and entertained...but the horrible narration was really hard to take! The tongue noises and dry mouth took away from the good story. Good mystery though.

This must've been written a while back. Going steady and thinking someone is a square? Waste of time.

Sophie Kinsella's debut is a romp through the perils of shopping and spending, spending, spending! Becky can't resist a sale, and she's only a little overdrawn on her VISA. Readers will laugh aloud at Becky's retail adventures as she finds new and creative ways to relieve her increasingly credit card debt. Emily Gray's narration bounces along with Becky and her buying whims, while delivering a humorous account of what happens when credit goes bad.

Myron Bolitar has always dreamed about the femme fatale walking into his office and asking for help. The woman standing in his doorway has killer curves all right: She’s eight months pregnant, which kind of ruins the fantasy. Former tennis star Suzze T and her rock star husband, Lex, are both clients, and over the years Myron has negotiated his share of contracts for the power pair. But now Lex has disappeared and a very pregnant Suzze is in tears, fearing the online rumors questioning the baby’s paternity have driven away Lex.

The murder was ugly. The killer was sure no one saw him.Someone did. In a horrifying vision, Chelsea Adams has relived the victim's last moments. But who will believe her? Certainly not the police, who must rely on hard evidence. Nor her husband, who barely tolerates Chelsea's newfound Christian faith. Besides, he's about to hire the man who Chelsea is certain is the killer to be a vice president in his company.

If there wasn't so much "please lord' and trying to turn me into being a Christian, I would've enjoyed this book. A bit pious and condescending for my taste.
