Publisher's Summary

Number-one New York Times best-seller.

Becky Brandon’s life is blooming. She’s working at London’s newest big store, The Look, house-hunting with husband Luke (her secret wish is a shoe room)...and she’s pregnant. She couldn’t be more overjoyed - especially after discovering that shopping cures morning sickness. Everything has to be perfect for her baby: from the designer nursery and the latest stroller to top-of-the-line medical care.   

But when the must-have celebrity obstetrician Becky’s been so desperate to see turns out to be 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?   

Praise for Sophie Kinsella and Shopaholic & Baby   

“From sonograms to the hottest baby strollers to tricked-out birthing rooms...Kinsella’s ode to baby blues is both sly and slapstick.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Faster than a swiping Visa, more powerful than a two-for-one coupon, able to buy complete wardrobes in a single sprint through the mall - it’s Shopaholic!” (The Washington Post)

“Kinsella’s heroine is blessed with the resilience of ten women, and her damage-limitation brain waves are always good for a giggle.” (Glamour, UK)   

“As fun as a shopping spree.” (Entertainment Weekly)

Critic Reviews

"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)

A light, entertaining read

This book follows the same formula as all the other books in the Shopaholic series. Becky tells a bunch of lies, gets herself into a heap of trouble, and then the truth all comes out in the end. Sometimes this predictability can be tiresome, since Becky often acts completely irrationally, or in ways that no normal human being would act. That being said, it is a light, fun read, and passes a few hours without being boring. It got quite a few chuckles out of me. The ending was pretty over-the-top, but that is typical of the series and nothing new.

Perfect

I've read every book in the shopaholic series, and I have enjoyed every one of them...This one is no different.
