The Shopaholic books are consistently fun and predictable, starring Becky Bloomwood and her typically cringe-worthy spending antics. While in the past I have been frustrated by her complete lack of character development and her selfish habits, I was pleasantly surprised to see her grow and learn this time. After she is dared by her husband to wear every item of clothing she owns before buying more, Becky is determined to prove that she is not the shopaholic he claims her to be. At the same time, she is desperately trying to host the flashiest, most fabulous surprise birthday party without him finding out. She also has a 2 year old who won't stop buying coats online and throwing tantrums that get them banned from shopping centers. Becky has a lot to tackle in this installment and it was a blast tagging along. If you have made it this far through the series, you will be very pleased to continue. Becky's adventures will make you laugh and feel better about your own spending habits.
While trying to deal with her mini-terror 2-year-old, financially strapped Becky Brandon attempts to plan a surprise party on a budget for her husband, Luke, and starts to come apart at the seams as she juggles the party, her precocious child and her faltering personal-shopping business.
