"The misadventures of Becky Brandon Née Bloomwood continue in a new novel full of holiday cheer and--of course--lots of shopping!"--
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "It's been four long years since Becky Brandon, née Bloomwood, graced readers with a lighthearted adventure full of humor, warmth, and shopping. Kinsella's popular character who first appeared almost 20 years ago in Confessions of a Shopaholic continues her hunt for bargains with her husband Luke, her best friend Suze, and her daughter Minnie along for the ride. Working at a village gift shop, far from her old fast-paced city life, Becky continues to rally her blind optimism when asked to host Christmas for the first time while her parents try out a more hipster lifestyle in a trendy London neighborhood. Naturally the holiday season is full of shopping expeditions, family drama, and a school Christmas pageant to boot. Then an old flame arrives in town, equipped with a beautiful girlfriend with eyes on Luke, and a fellow school mother's marriage is in distress. Longtime fans will welcome Becky's return, but even readers new to the Shopaholic world will connect with the themes of the sandwich generation, marriage woes, and holiday spectacles that can threaten any family gathering.--Monica Garza Bustillo Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Kinsella's popular heroine, Becky Bloomwood Brandon, is back for a delightful ode to shopping, in the engaging eighth Shopaholic novel, this time with a Christmas theme. These days, Becky is in lovely, leafy suburbia and living happily ever after with her husband, Luke, and young daughter, Minnie. When her parents take an apartment in the trendy Shoreditch neighborhood in London, Becky is stuck with planning Christmas festivities for friends and family alike. While running her best friend's gift shop at grand Letherby Hall, Becky encounters an old boyfriend, who's now a musician, and his obnoxious girlfriend, who is determined to go into business with Luke. The villainess of this tale and her devious actions are a teeny bit far-fetched, but Becky is as whimsical and wonderful as ever. With hilarious scrapes only Becky could get into--including being locked into a pet store while buying a last-minute hamster for Minnie, integrating an all-male billiards club, and using a permanent Sharpie to mark names of new aftershaves on Luke's skin as he sleeps--Kinsella delivers a solid and laugh-out-loud funny installment that longtime readers and new fans alike will gleefully devour.
