Book 5: Shopaholic & Sister
GOODREADS SYNOPSIS: Irresistible, one-woman shopping phenomenon Becky Bloomwood is back in this hilarious, heartwarming, New York Times bestselling tale of married life, best friends, and long-lost sisters (and the perils of simply having to own an Angel handbag!).
This shopaholic series just keeps getting better! I am so glad I decided to read them all.
I felt for Becky throughout this novel because after her and Luke return from their 10 month long honeymoon, she see’s that everyone and everything has changed. Her parents are acting strangely and she has no friends anymore and to top it all off she finds out she has a half sister.
Also, Becky being Becky, she tries to help Luke in his business but ends up making a mess of everything in the process. Poor Becky can’t seem to do anything right and she’s all alone.
I found this book a little emotional and I suppose it’s because a lot of us can probably understand and relate to how Becky was feeling.
Everything does change once you get married, well at every stage in life really. You finish high school, you leave those friends behind. You change jobs, you leave those friends behind. Once you get married, you make friends who are also married. Once you have kids, you make friends with other mums. It’s a continuous cycle and people can feel left behind when they no longer fit that cycle with their friends anymore.
But all’s well that ends well and Becky bounced back like she always does. Now onto book #6: Shopaholic & Baby!
