After reading so many non-fiction and, frankly, disturbing books in a row, I needed something light and fun – and this was just the thing!
There’s clearly something amiss when Becky is not enthusiastic about shopping. She and her mother and the shopaholic cast of characters are on a trek to Las Vegas in search of Becky’s father, who’s gone missing on a mysterious “errand” with Becky’s friend Suze’s husband, Tarquin — and she’s found she’s lost her shopping groove. She also may have lost her best friend, Suze. And her father. As they all set out to find Becky’s father, they learn about her father’s kind-hearted mission to right a past wrong and they find a wild way to support him in the end.
While the previous Shopaholic book was a painful disappointment, I have to admit that this one was adventurous and highly amusing. None of these shopaholic books will be awarded the Nobel Prize for literature, but they are entertaining, engaging, plot-driven, heartwarming, and endearing – and they are a wonderful escape from these stressful times.
I highly recommend this as a delightful distraction from your everyday routine – and you don’t even have to tell anyone that you’ve indulged, as I’ve admitted to here!
