What I'm Reading: Shopaholic to the Rescue

Shopoholic to the Rescue

Becky is on a major rescue mission through the American West to Las Vegas! Her father has vanished from Los Angeles on a mysterious quest with the husband of Becky’s best friend, Suze. Becky’s mum is hysterical; Suze is flat-out desperate. Worse, Becky must tolerate an enemy along for the ride, who she’s convinced is up to no good.

Determined to get to the bottom of why her dad has disappeared, help Suze, contain the dreaded Alicia, and reunite her fractured family, Becky knows that she must marshal all her trademark ingenuity. The result: her most outrageous and daring plan yet!

But just when her family needs her more than ever, can Becky pull it off?

I'm a huge Sophie Kinsella fan, but her latest, Shopaholic to the Rescue, was my least favorite of the series. This story picks up where Shopaholic to the Stars leaves off. All of the other books in the series are standalone, so I didn't particularly like how these two were tied together.

Although the book had some funny moments, the series lost a lot of its charm for me. Becky is unhappy for parts of the story, Suze's character is almost unrecognizable, and a lot of the levity the Becky fans have grown to enjoy just isn't there. I enjoy these books for something fun to read, but this didn't live up to my expectations.
