The irresistible heroine of Confessions of a Shopaholic and Shopaholic Takes Manhattan is back!-in a hilarious tale of mothers and daughters, mothers and sons, and one blushing bride who just can't say no to saying "I do."
Life has been good for Becky Bloomwood: She's become the best personal shopper at Barneys, she and her successful entrepreneurial boyfriend, Luke, are living happily in Manhattan's West Village, and her new next door neighbor is a fashion designer! But with her best friend, Suze, engaged, how can Becky fail to notice that her own ring finger is bare? Not that she's been thinking of marriage (or diamonds) or anything...
Then Luke proposes! Bridal registries dance in Becky's head. Problem is, two other people are planning her wedding: Becky's overjoyed mother has been waiting forever to host a backyard wedding, with the bride resplendent in Mum's frilly old gown. While Luke's high-society mother is insisting on a glamorous, all-expenses-paid affair at the Plaza. Both weddings for the same day. And Becky can't seem to turn down either one. Can everyone's favorite shopaholic tie the knot before everything unravels?
These books are so funny & cute! Easy reads - the first book is by far the best in series - but the rest are still very good and such easy reads! Try and find them in a second hand store and you will be happy!
I love this series!!! It's such a fun, uplifting, easy read. I couldn't put it down and read it in 2 days!!!
I was actually pretty surprised how much I enjoyed this book (and series for that matter!). So funny and cute.
This book would be a great gift to a friend who loves ChickLit and who is also in the midst of wedding planning horror....it makes light of the stressful situations that may arise when trying to plan a wedding. Becky's character definitely makes common mistakes when planning her wedding but in the end realizes what is more important that the extravagant wedding she initially set out to plan. This book is another Kinsella success.
When I first read this book, I had recently gotten engaged myself. So I could totally relate to Becky's wedding planning horror. I enjoyed this book tremendously and by book 3, I've gotten to know Becky so well that I don't think anything she did surprised me anymore. However, it was great to see Becky managed to come out shining and glowing after a long road of wedding faux-pas and what-not-to-dos. :P It was an awesome book!
Shopaholic part 3 doesn't disappoint. Becky prepares for her wedding to Luke, but on top of her insatiable shopatite she has to deal with her future mother-in-law. This will amuse fans of the Shopaholic series as well as anyone planning a wedding.
