Publisher's Summary

Becky Brandon (nee Bloomwood) is pregnant! She couldn't be more overjoyed, especially since discovering that shopping cures morning sickness. Everything has got to be perfect for her baby, from the designer nursery, to the latest, coolest pram, to the celebrity, must-have obstetrician.

But when the celebrity obstetrician turns out to be her husband Luke's glamorous, intellectual ex-girlfriend, Becky's perfect world starts to crumble. She's shopping for two, but are there three in her marriage?

Shop therapy: don't miss more in the Shopaholic series.

What the Critics Say

"Through it all, Becky never loses her spark, making this fifth entry in the Shopaholic series every bit as delightful and hilarious as its predecessors." (Booklist)

    "Lives up to the Shopaholic Standards"

    This was my first time listening to one of the Shopaholic books, and I loved it! Rosalyn (the reader) kept me thoroughly enthralled from beginning to end, just as I would have been had I actually been reading the book myself. Very well done!!!!!

    Story
    "Not too pleased with Rosalyn Landor's interpretation."

    I don't care for the voices and intonation this reader has applied to the characters. Also, I know it's ridiculous but I'm having a difficult time even listening to this since the reader keeps mispronouncing Suze's name! It's "Sooz" not "Suzy"!

    Story
    "SOLD!"
    If you could sum up Shopaholic & Baby in three words, what would they be?

    Narrator? + Suzie? + SOLD!I thought for sure that:1. (one of my favorite narrators) Roslyn Landor, who I thought would have a much, much older voice than Becky would have!2. Suze being called Suzie would be too unsettlingbut, once again, these original distractions became meaningless as my love for this wonderful story and the narration turned into pure - well - FAB!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Everything, but for some reason it was nice to have a little less focus on shopping.And... things like this... " BECKY'S ONLINE BANK FOR GIRLS" get me laughing out-right!


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

    Better man voices. Excitement. More intelligent, down-to-earth Becky.

    "Cute"

    Cute story. Would have enjoyed a little more twists and turns perhaps. This seemed the most mild of the Shopaholics...

    "Good Book, Bad Narrator"

    As all the Shopaholic Series that's really fun and entretaining but I don´t like the narrator, her voice sound too old to be Becky! I seariously prefer the Confessions of a Shopaholic & shopaholic takes Manhattan narrator.

    "Fun, Fun, Fun!!!"

    I read all of the previous shopaholic books the old fashioned way. This was the first I listened to. I loved the narrator! This was the perfect book to listen to while lying on the beach.

    "Not the same - still good"

    If you love Becky this one won't disappoint. My only complaint would be the narration. Although it was very good, after listening to the first 3 Shopaholics Emily Gray was Becky to me. I really missed her on this one as I did with Shopaholic & Sister. I also found the pronunciation of "Suze" rather annoying. In the other books it's "Sues", in this one "Suzie". It's a small thing but it really distracted me. Overall fun listen with good narration, just not the same Becks I've grown to love.

    "Shopaholic and Baby"

    The story itself was easily 5 stars, but the narrator again was awful compared to the first two which really detracted from the enjoyment of it. Her voice sounded like a woman in her 40's instead of her 20's. I hated the way she called Suze "Suzy"

    I always liked Suze and was glad more was done with her character this time around but the narrator failed to make her nearly as interesting as the one who read the first two books.

    I would still buy the next book to see what happens in Becky's future life though...but hopefully by then they will get the original narrator back.

    "Good book, wrong narrator."

    I give this book a 4 star for the fun, easy, frivolity of it, but a 2 star for the narrator. I agree with several other reviewers that the difference of pronunciation of "suzie" and "ark-o-dus" were very annoying. Emily Grey personified the character of Becky far better as well as all the other characters. This narrator is flat and lacking in variety.
