For Rebecca Bloomwood, life is peachy. She has a job on morning TV, telling people how to manage their money – a subject on which she is an expert. Her bank manager is actually being nice to her, despite being just a tad overdrawn. And the icing on the brioche is that her boyfriend is moving to New York …and has asked her to go with him.
New York! The Museum of Modern Art! The Guggenheim! The Metropolitan Opera House! And Becky does mean to go to all these. Honestly. It’s just that it seems silly not to check out a few other places first. Like Bloomingdales. And Saks. And that amusing little place she’s been told about where you can sometimes get a Prada dress for $10. Or was it $100? Anyway, it’s full of fantastic bargains.
Shopaholic Abroad – because there just aren’t enough shops in Britain.
Fast, funny and slick, this is a sure-fire bestseller.
Popular fiction at its glorious best: a loveable heroine, page after page of bellylaughs and the enormous comfort of knowing that us out-of-control shoppers are not alone.
Witty and hilarious
Sophie Kinsella's likeable characters and her keen eye for the absurd make this book hugely enjoyable.
Waterstones Books Quarterly
Kinsella comes good with lots of light-hearted laughs and a mushy ending to die for.
