What’s a round-the-world honeymoon if you can’t buy the odd souvenir to ship back home? Like the twenty silk dressing gowns Becky found in Hong Kong…the hand-carved dining table (and ten 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 loft, and the bills for them are outrageous. Luke insists Becky 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, have manicures 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? Sophie Kinsella is a former financial journalist and the author of the bestselling novels Confessions of a Shopaholic, Shopaholic Takes Manhattan, Shopaholic Ties the Knot, Can You Keep a Secret?, and The Undomestic Goddess. She lives in England, where she is at work on her next book.

Shopaholic is just too addicting! (Yes, this was my fourth Shopaholic in a row. I told you, it was a five-book set!)
Rebecca finder ud af at hun har en søster, og som vi alle kender hende, er hun allerede i gang med at planlægge alle de fantastiske ting de kan lave sammen (specielt shopping). Men hvad gør man lige når man finder ud af at ens søster hader alt det man selv elsker ?Denne bog er ikke en af mine yndlin...
Well, to make it short, this is not a book you have to read, nor is it a very intellectual type of book. However, I have so far read it three times, each time in only a few hours. It's a good read, refreshing and enjoyable. Although it's rather a book for the "in between" times, when you're not qui...
I really enjoyed this installment of the Shopaholic series. In S&S Becky and Luke are back home after a 10 month honeymoon around the world. There's a very funny scene where Becky achieves "enlightenment" from a piece of jewelry and walks barefoot over burning coals that I got a good chuckle from. A...
