Book 9: Shopaholic to the rescue
GOODREADS SYNOPSIS: Becky Bloomwood and a hilarious cast of beloved family and friends (plus one enemy!) set off in a van to find her missing father, last heard from in Las Vegas.
Becky’s father Graham and her best friend’s husband, Tarquin, have disappeared from Los Angeles saying simply they have “something to take care of.”
But Tarquin’s wife Suze who is Becky’s best friend, and Becky’s mother Jane, are convinced the two men are hiding something and are in danger—their imaginations run wild. They must track them down!
Hijinks ensue as husband Luke drives Becky, daughter Minnie, Jane, Suze and other favorite Kinsella characters across country from LA to Las Vegas in search of the missing men.
Becky feels deeply guilty about ignoring her father while he was in LA, in addition Becky feels her enemy Alicia is threatening her friendship with Suze.
OK, don’t panic. I can do this.(That’s how every book in the series starts off)… I can write the review for the last shopaholic book published to date.
This book was a continuation from the last book, it literally picked up where it has left off because Rebecca’s dad and Tarkie had up and gone on an errand and so everyone went off after them on a wild goose chase through Las Vegas in an RV without the slightest idea where they might be.
Rebecca was less annoying in this book though, she acted more maturely and put everyone else first, which was a nice change, and so of course it was Rebecca who saved the day in the end and helped her dad finish his errand.
I’m not sure if Sophie Kinsella will be writing another Shopaholic book, but I’ll be sure to read it if and when she does.
All in all a good book series to read, I will miss these characters a little but am also glad I am all caught up so I can move onto reading something else now.
