Publisher's Summary

Number-one New York Times best-selling author Sophie Kinsella returns with another laugh-out-loud Becky Brandon (née Bloomwood) adventure: a hilarious road trip through the American West to Las Vegas. 

Becky is on a major rescue mission through the American West to Las Vegas! Her father has vanished from Los Angeles on a mysterious quest with the husband of Becky’s best friend, Suze. Becky’s mum is hysterical; Suze is flat-out desperate. Worse, Becky must tolerate an enemy along for the ride, who she's convinced is up to no good. 

Determined to get to the bottom of why her dad has disappeared, help Suze, contain the dreaded Alicia, and reunite her fractured family, Becky knows she must marshal all her trademark ingenuity. The result: her most outrageous and daring plan yet! 

But just when her family needs her more than ever, can Becky pull it off? 

Praise for Shopaholic to the Rescue:   

“Full of gags, sparkling dialogue and beautifully drawn characters.... It’s a real treat to be reunited with the eminently loveable, incredibly ditzy and fiercely loyal Shopaholic protagonist Becky Brandon (née Bloomwood).” (Daily Mail)

“Will Bex and best friend Suze ever make up? Will Becky’s old nemesis, banker Derek Smeath, finish his memoir? Why can’t our beloved Shopaholic seem to spend any money, even on a $2.50 pencil?... This is escapism that will make you giggle out loud.” (USA Today)

“Readers can’t help but be delighted. Kinsella never once loses Becky’s voice and heart, which is one of the joys of the Shopaholic series.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Full of Becky’s outrageous ideas, including a heist à la Ocean’s Eleven, this novel does not disappoint.... Kinsella adds a mystery and twists and turns at every corner in this latest work while maintaining Becky’s signature voice.” (Library Journal)

Best shopaholic story yet

When I read the last book before this one, I was really disappointed at Becky's character as well as the way it ended. This book totally made up for it though. I love how Becky is more grown up in this book, as well as the plot of the story. Don't let the previous book stop you from reading this one. It's so good. This book was more on track with the previous books in the series, I was not a fan of the last book, but this really shows how Becky has grown, and the Humor is just as great as before. I loved how this book was more focused on her helping to fix things with others, rather than fixing scrapes she's gotten herself into. This is definitely a better change for character development and growth.

Lousy Sequel

I've read all the Shopaholic books and this is by far the worst one yet

Always great to hear a Becky story...

Always great to revisit Becky et al. But this round felt a little played out. Hated the cliffhanger in the last book and was looking forward to this one. As always, a fun story but a little far fetched, well more then usual.

Disappointing

I have listened to all of Sophie Kinsella's novels and have loved them. My daughter and I love listening on road trips. Unfortunately, This last Shopaholic installment was not the least bit humorous and did not hold our attention, as the usually hilarious story lines and hijinks were missing. We were bored with the story and switched to a different book on our most recent trip.

One of my favorite series and authors


Sophie Kinsella is light and fun and the Shopaholic series is a hoot.

Sophie's characters are real people maybe slightly over the top. They have real life struggles infused with a good dose of humor.

I especially enjoyed this installment as I listened to it on Audible and happen to travel thru Nevada and Arizona so my travels corresponded with the travel in the book which I thought was kind of funny.

Fun fun fun !!!

That was awful! :-(

What would have made Shopaholic to the Rescue better?

First of all the narration with all the different voices (from one person) was SO annoying. Especially for the little girl and the men.

Any additional comments?

I've read and LOVED all of S.K.'s books, but this one was horrible. I just kept waiting for it to get better as it had all the great reviews. Honestly, a waste of time. Even for a fun no thinking type of book which is what I was in the mood for after 2 heavy ones I just read.

Just my opinion, of course.
