Shopaholic Ties the Knot CD-Audio
Part of the Shopaholic series
Rebecca Bloomwood has the dream job. She's a personal shopper, so is able to spend other people's money all day instead of her own. And she gets paid for doing it. The perfect job, the perfect man - gorgeous Luke Brandon - and now ...the perfect wedding.
Yes, Luke has proposed and wedding bells are in sight.
No excuses are needed to start the shopping trip of all time. And Becky's parents are just assuming that the wedding will be at home - a marquee in the garden and Becky in her mum's wedding dress, which she's been saving specially for the occasion.
But Luke's mother has very different ideas - a huge affair in New York in a forest glade setting - or perhaps a Venetian Ball, or a fin de siecle extravagance!
Now Becky's getting confused. She doesn't want to say 'no' to anyone. The plans are going ahead, and soon it will be too late to turn back - from either wedding...

Review by DubaiReader
Abridged audiobook.I have read (listened to) one other Sophie Kinsella book, but it was not from the Shopaholic series. This was the first time I had met Becky Bloomwood. She struck me as totally divorced from the realities of life and it is this that makes her both endearing and frustrating. Bills for clothes do not become any smaller because you drop Tippex on them!When Becky's boyfriend, Luke Brandon, proposes, Becky's mother is thrilled and immediately starts to make arrangements for her only daughter's wedding in their home in Oxshott, England. She brings out her own wedding dress, which fits Becky perfectly - but is the last thing Becky wants to wear as she walks down the aisle.Meanwhile, Luke's Mum in America, decides to treat them to the perfect wedding in The Plaza Hotel, New York.True to her pattern of 'head in the sand', Becky manages to not quite cancel either wedding and as the time approaches, the situation becomes more and more urgent.I felt for her, but I could have slapped her too! Entertaining to listen to in the car.I have a couple of other Shopaholic books on my shelves but there are many other books that are more urgently queueing for my attention. Also read:Remember Me? by Sophie Kinsella (4 stars)
