    Description

     

    Sophie Kinsella has conquered the hearts of millions with her New York Times best-selling Shopaholic novels, which feature the irresistible one-woman shopping phenomenon Becky Bloomwood. Now Becky’s back in a hilarious, heartwarming tale of married life, best friends, and long-lost sisters (and the perils of simply having to own an Angel handbag!). 

    What’s a round-the-world honeymoon if you can’t buy the odd souvenir to ship back home? Like the Chinese urns and 20 silk dressing gowns Becky found in Hong Kong...the five kilim rugs from Turkey...the splendid hand-carved dining table (and 10 chairs) from Sri Lanka...the, um, huge wooden giraffes from Malawi (that her husband Luke expressly forbade her to buy)...

    Only now Becky and Luke have returned home to London and Luke is furious. Two truckloads of those souvenirs have cluttered up their usually immaculate loft, and the bills for them are outrageous. Becky’s even maxed out on her second secret credit card, and she doesn’t have a new job yet! Luke insists she go on a budget. And worse: her beloved best friend Suze has found a new best friend while Becky was away. 

    Becky’s feeling rather blue - when her parents deliver some incredible news. She has a long-lost sister! Becky is thrilled! She’s convinced her sister will be a true soulmate. They’ll go shopping together, drink cappuccinos together, have manicures together, and watch their favorite videos together. 

    Until she meets Jessica for the first time and gets the shock of her life. Surely Becky Bloomwood’s sister can’t...hate shopping?

    My least favourite of the Shopaholic books

    I enjoyed this lastest Shopaholic book very much, but I found that Becky Bloomwood was at her most irritating in this book. Despite all the trouble she's gotten into in past books she never seems to learn from her mistakes and the mishaps in this book are very similar to those in the other three. i.e. Becky tells a fib and finds things spiralling out of control because of her lie. Of course, she always redeems herself in the end so it's impossible to hate her, but I came really close this time. The introduction of a sister for Becky made for an interesting plot, especially since they're so different. I was very ambivalent about Shopaholic and Sister until right at the end. However, it's a definite must-read if you are a fan of the Shopaholic series.

    Disappointing narration

    I became a Becky Bloomwood fan through audible books and loved the narration of the first three -- all narrated by Emily Gray who totally gets Becky Bloomwood (my opinion). I found I had to listen to Shopaholic and Sister super-imposing Emily Gray's voice and inflections while I listened. Reading it was more enjoyable.

    Still LOVE Becky Bloomwood though. Bring on more!

    Repairing Connections

    Josephine Bailey did a fine job with story. Yes, I enjoyed this one. There is less shopping and more doing. You know how we guys like action. ;) Coming up with titles for a review is often more difficult than writing the darn things so I finally fixed on one which describes what Rebecca Brandon is about in this work. She tries to fix problems of her own making with her relationships: sister, husband, best friend. Men and women think differently from each other on most matters. Rebecca thinks extremely differently. She naturally assumes shopping will solve all problems. What did Jane Austen have to say about fine clothes? Oh, I can't quite quote but she goes something like this: woman is fine for herself alone. As long as she is neat and clean, a man will never notice much less remember the new dress, hair color, lipstick shade, style of shoes, the stylish purse or earrings. In other words, we men don't care for the fruit peel only the meat. For other women, something a bit shabby is preferred for conversation's sake. Don't blame me; this is straight from Jane Austen (Northanger Abbey). Rebecca, poor girl, probably wasn't an Austen fan and therefore never got this good advice from the grand dame herself. I really started enjoying this story when Rebecca absolutely gunks up the works then rushes pell-mell to put matters aright. First stop was to patch things up with her sister and manages to totally alienate her. To fix matters, she wound up on the side of a mountain in a storm in her lovely new slippers then slipped off. Oh yes, the story picks up delightfully: action, blood, mud, broken bones, the works. The best of it happened when she found herself accidently organizing a large scale protest of her husband's largest client. Then there are the amusing adventures as she mended matters. However Luke and Rebecca Brandon finally arrive at their Pemberley, one can only say it will be an interesting trip.

    Not her best...

    I really enjoyed her previous books and so was looking forward to listening to this. It was quite disappointing though! Becky sounds much older with this narrator..her voice reminds me of Aunt Clara from Bewitched. And the situations Becky creates in this novel are more serious and consequential which makes Becky look flighty and irresponsible. Her previous novels had these things, too, but you still really enjoyed Becky and empathized with her plights. In this book I found myself disliking her for the things she does and wondering how in the world anyone could be so irresponsible and stupid? The sister line is annoying..had I been her sister I may have obtained a restraining order! The first half of the book isn't quite as bad as the second half in this regard.....Not sure I can recommend this one folks!

    ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT

    I enjoyed this fourth book just as much as the first three. I find Becky very amusing and you can't help but like her. The relationship between her and Luke? (can't remember hubby's name)is a good part of the story aside from the found sister aspect. I would definitely recommend it for Becky fans.

    I did get the audible version of Can you Keep a Secret, but did not enjoy that one nearly as much as the Shopoholic series.

    A Pleasant Surprise

    I really didn't expect to like this book......although I am definitely a Sophie Kinsella fan and enjoyed all the others. I expected it to be something sappy about sisters bonding and going on long shopping trips together. What a pleasant surprise to find such a fun read.....one of my favorites of the series. I am amazed that Ms. Kinsella has been able to keep this series going for so many books.....and I'm already looking forward to the next one.

    Read before you narrate!!

    I LOVE the shopaholic series, however i wish that the narrators would have listened to the 1st 2 books so they knew how to pronounce the names and the worst part is in the next book, the narrator gives Eleanor Sherman a london accent instead of an american accent.... there should have been crib notes for them at least.

    No reprieve for Becky or us throughout

    This whole book seems to be designed to grind Becky down. It's still enjoyable but only just as the light hearted spark Becky's character is consistently trod underfoot. The sister character was certainly very welcome and she is a great foil to Becky. This fourth installment is generally missing the joie de vivre from the first two books. A darker tone for those devoted followers of Mrs. Brandon née Bloomwood.

    Great Book, Great Narrator!

    I am a HUGE FAN of Emily Gray, the narrator of the previous 3 books. I wasn't even going to get this one because of the disparaging reviews over the new narrator. BUT I HAVE TO SAY: Josephine Bailey NAILED IT! I thoroughly enjoyed the book, and her take on Becky and the gang. Worth the purchase...

    Nur 4 Sterne...

    ...da diese Geschichte extrem konstruiert ist und manchmal geht mir der Kaufzwang von Becky auf den Keks....Dafür wird die Leserschaft dann doch immer wieder versöhnt, von der (etwas spät auftauchenden)Streetcleverness und dem großen Herzen, daß die Protagonistin bestitzt.
    Kurzweilig, sehr lustig und wie immer mit etwas Tiefgang

    Nett, aber...

    Aus meiner Sicht das schwächste Buch aus der Becky Bloomwood-Reihe. Der Anfang während der Hochzeitsreise hat mir gut gefallen, die Erlebnisse mit Beckys frisch gewonnener, sparverrückter Schwester gingen mir dann teilweise doch etwas auf den Geist. Im Übrigen musste man sich an eine neue Sprecherin gewöhnen, die aber letztlich einen guten Job gemacht hat.

    Eine Ode an die Freundschaft

    Mit ihrem Hörbuch knüpft Sophie Kinsella in mittlerweile schon gewohnt gelungener Manier an ihre Shopaholic Serie an.
    Wie bereits in den vergangenen Episoden regt Becky Bloomwood in ihrer erfrischenden Art immer wieder zum Schmunzeln, Lächeln, Kichern und Lachen an.
    Diesmal trifft Sie auf ihre "Schwester". Obwohl theoretisch 50% der Gene identisch sein sollten, sind die beiden diametrale Gegensätze und sich doch irgendwie ähnlich. Entsprechend expolsiv ist die Mischung, die entsteht, sobald die beiden Schwestern - beide können auf ihre ganz eigene Art und weise nicht fassen, womit sie die andere verdient haben - aufeinandertreffen.
    Neben dieser neuen Überraschungsverwandtschaft sind aber auch die alten Wiederholungstäter Luke und Suz erneut von der Partie.
    Alles in allem kann ich dieses - wie auch alle anderen Abenteuer von Becky Bloomwood - jedem (vielleicht nicht unbedingt männlichen Geschlechts), der ein paar unbeschwerte Stunden voll Hörvergnügen sucht, nur empfhelen.
