Sophie Kinsella (Bantam Press) ISBN: 9780593074633
This is the eighth in Kinsella’s
hugely popular Shopaholic series. If you’re like me you’re imagining Isla
Fischer in Gucci stumbling around in designer heels as we embark on another of
Becky Bloomwood Brandon’s adventures.
This time Becky finds herself in
an RV headed to Las Vegas with a posse of characters that fans of the
Shopaholic series know well. Becky’s father has disappeared on a mission to
help an old friend and Becky’s BFF Suze’s husband has gone along for the ride.
With Suze and Mum up in arms
about the secrecy of the mission Becky has to hatch a plan that will resolve
her dad’s dutiful mission and bring him home before her mum loses the plot.
Meanwhile Suze is having marriage problems, Becky’s two-year-old daughter
Minnie wants nothing more than to ride a sheep and Becky is convinced her arch
nemesis Alicia Bitch Long-Legs is up to something.
This is a humorous, harmless
read worth forgetting on the beach as soon as you finish reading it.
