Shopaholic Ties the Knot: 05/09/17
Shopaholic Ties the Knot by Sophie Kinsella is the third in the Shopaholic books. Becky has a good job, lives in Manhattan, and has the boyfriend of her dreams. Now she's suddenly engaged and in a massive tug of war between a mother and Luke's mother both trying to plan the wedding of the century.
In Manhattan Becky can have a huge wedding in a place that's impossible to book and have anything in the wedding — the more extravagant the better. In England, the wedding will be at home with her closest of friends and her parents' garden decked out especially for the day.
The problem is, she only has so much time and she has to make a decision. She has to break the news to someone before it's too late. But you know how well Becky can handle that type of situation.
This book was extra special for me because it brought back all the weddings my grandmother planned in the 1980s, with me as her weekend and summer assistant. Back in the day when most kids were working in fast food or as paperboys, I was a wedding coordinator assistant — earning $15 per wedding. While we didn't see either of the extremes present in Becky's life, we did see everything in between.

I am a lover of Kinsella, and I will continue to read Becky's adventures. How fun that you got to work with your grandmother.

Working for my grandmother was probably my hardest but most rewarding job. I have the next Shopaholic book on hold at the library.
