Book Review: Shopaholic & Baby by Sophie Kinsella

On the jacket

Becky Brandon (née 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?

Call me whatever, but I love Kinsella's books and characters. Shopaholic & Baby  is the fifth book in Kinsella's Shopaholic series. While the plot and story telling is awesome, Becky has started getting on my nerves. I mean, when will she learn? Never? She gets into a tricky financial situation in every book, and towards the end, manages to cover up the disasters. 

One can actually read from Becky and learn. While her husband tells her clearly, his company is "haemorrhaging money", instead mending her ways, she chooses to hide her expenditure from him! In this book, there will be times you will hate her, but her relationship with Luke, her husband is absolutely adorable! In fact, Luke is adorable!

If you have read the previous books in the series, you are bound to feel Becky has not grown up one bit. She has moved continents, got married, found a lost sister and is now having a baby, but her mind is as restless and indecisive as it ever was! 

A good bedtime/travel read, I suggest you give it a try!
