The irresistible heroine of Confessions of a Shopaholic and Shopaholic Ties the Knot is back! And this time Becky Bloomwood and her credit cards are headed across the Atlantic.…

With her shopping excesses (somewhat) in check and her career as a TV financial guru thriving, Becky's biggest problem seems to be tearing her entrepreneur boyfriend, Luke, away from work for a romantic country weekend. And worse, figuring out how to pack light. But packing takes on a whole new meaning when Luke announces he's moving to New York for business--and he asks Becky to go with him! Before you can say "Prada sample sale," Becky has landed in the Big Apple, home of Park Avenue penthouses and luxury boutiques.

Surely it's only a matter of time until she becomes an American TV celebrity, and she and Luke are the toast of Gotham society. Nothing can stand in their way, especially with Becky's bills miles away in London. But then an unexpected disaster threatens her career prospects, her relationship with Luke, and her available credit line! Shopaholic Takes Manhattan --but will she have to return it?

I remember liking the first book in the series so I finally picked up this one over the weekend. I found I could not stand Becky in this book. I suppose it is realistic that she would fall back into her old ways but it was her compulsive lying that really made me dislike her. How can such a person have such a great friend, boyfriend, and family who all love her? I mean, she lies to them all the time! I feel that Kinsella makes her too likeable when in real life, Becky would be the worst friend and girlfriend ever. At least by the end she does start to realize this ... but her lying doesn't stop.

Another fun story about Becky's adventures. A bit less predicable than the first, but has your attention captured throughout.

this second book in the series was better than the first one. not as good as bridgit jones, but a fun read.

Great book! I liked reading it because it was a bit of light reading which was extremely necessary after all the boring school books.

Great book! Very humourous. Everytime you read the shopaholic series, you always wonder what Becky will do next!!
