Shopaholic & Baby ~ A Book Review

"Becky's life is blooming!  She's working at London's newest big store, The Look, house-hunting with husband Luke (her secret wish is a Shoe Room)...and she's pregnant!  She couldn't be more overjoyed - especially since discovering that shopping cures morning sickness.  Everything has got to be perfect for her baby: from the designer nursery...to the latest, coolest pram...to the celebrity, must-have obstetrician.  But when the celebrity obstetrician turns out to be Luke's glamorous, intellectual ex-girlfriend, Becky's perfect world starts to crumble.  She's shopping for two...but are there three in her marriage?" - taken from the back cover of Shopaholic & Baby.
I absolutely love the author Sophie Kinsella and the Shopaholic series.  I have been reading these books for years and after the first one, Confessions of a Shopaholic, they do tend to be repetitive and pretty predictable, but they are still very fun books to read.  In Shopaholic & Baby Rebecca Bloomwood Brandon is back and just as adorable as ever.  She is the shopaholic that we have grown to love and this time she is having a baby!  All the familiar characters return, Suze - the best friend, Luke - her handsome, charming husband, mum and dad, sister Jess, Tom and Janice.  Becky's adventures are endless, starting with her first sonogram and ending with a delightful, laugh out loud delivery.  The struggles Becky faces are just as endless and range from a sexy obstetrician that is one of Luke's ex-girlfriends who is trying to steal him away, saving a business that is about to go under, finding the perfect house and most importantly, FINDING THE PERFECT PRAM!  So grab a cup of tea and head out on this new adventure with your favorite shopper.  You won't be disappointed!
