Product Overview

Sophie Kinsella has conquered the hearts of millions with her New York Times bestselling Shopaholic novels, which feature the irresistible one-woman shopping phenomenon Becky Bloomwood. Now Becky's back in a hilarious, heartwarming tale of married life, best friends, and long-lost sisters (and the perils of simply having to own an Angel handbag!).
What's a round-the-world honeymoon if you can't buy the odd souvenir to ship back home? Like the Chinese urns and twenty silk dressing gowns Becky found in Hong Kong...the five kilim rugs from Turkey...the splendid 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 usually immaculate loft, and the bills for them are outrageous. Becky's even maxed out on her second secret credit card, and she doesn't have a new job yet!
Luke insists she 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, drink cappuccinos together, have manicures together, and watch their favorite videos 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?

Author Info
Sophie Kinsella
Sophie Kinsella is the author of the popular Shopaholic series of novels, which have sold millions of copies. Sophie Kinsella is the pen name of Madeleine (Townley) Wickham, who was born in London and grew up in the Wimbledon area. A talented pianist as a teen, she briefly studied music at Oxford before switching her major to economics and embarking on a career as a financial journalist. Bored at work, she found herself longing, instead, to write fiction. At the age of 24 she published her first novel, THE TENNIS PARTY, about a group of well-to-do friends who gather for a country-house weekend, under her own name. She went on to write several more before deciding to try her hand at lighter fare, using a pen name in case the experiment failed. THE SECRET DREAMWORLD OF A SHOPAHOLIC was published in the U.K. in 2000 and the following year in the U.S. as CONFESSIONS OF A SHOPAHOLIC. Readers fell in love with the book's main character, Becky Bloomwood, a financial journalist whose own budget is a shambles. Becky has since been featured in several sequels, allowing readers to follow her through marriage and motherhood. Kinsella has continued to use the pen name--which is derived from her middle name and mother's maiden name--on both the series and on her subsequent stand-alone novels. Kinsella's own life shares romantic elements with her fiction. During her first day at Oxford she met her future husband, Henry Wickham, an aspiring vocalist. The two married when Kinsella was 21 and toured briefly together giving recitals. Later, he became the headmaster of a boys' school. On being called a writer of "chick-lit," Kinsella, who has been listed as one of the 100 wealthiest women in England, has said, "I mean, it's not the ideal term; when I'm asked to describe what I do, I say I write romantic comedies, [because] that's what I feel they are."
