27) Mini Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella

The Blurb -

Becky Brandon (née Bloomwood) thought motherhood would be a breeze and that having a daughter was a dream come true – a shopping friend for life! But it’s trickier than she thought – two-year-old Minnie has a quite different approach to shopping.

She can create havoc everywhere from Harrods to Harvey Nicks to her own christening. She hires taxis at random, her favourite word is ‘Mine‘, and she’s even started bidding for designer bags on ebay.

On top of everything else, there’s a big financial crisis. People are having to Cut Back – including all of Becky’s personal shopping clients – and she and Luke are still living with Becky’s Mum and Dad. To cheer everyone up, Becky decides to throw a surprise birthday party – on a budget – but then things become really complicated.

Who will end up on the naughty step, who will get a gold star and will Becky’s secret wishes come true?

My Thoughts -

Yes this is a Chick-lit book but I really love this author and I have followed the Shopoholic series from the beginning and didn't want to miss out on this one. Of course this review will be short because there are no vamps, weres or anything else paranormal involved.

It was a nice read. Not as good as the previous books. A little long winded and not as funny as the rest of the series. I wonder if the author will now do a Shopoholic in L.A or let things be. Of course I will keep reading Sophie's books because she is a great author that I can not leave off my wishlist.
