Mini Shopaholic: 06/07/20
Mini Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella is the sixth book in the Shopaholic series. Becky and Luke are now the proud parents of a stubborn and quite possibly, spoiled, toddler. Minnie's favorite word is "Mine!" and she's getting her parents in trouble where ever she goes.
There is also the problem that the Brandons have been living with Becky's parents. They sold their home in London and haven't managed to buy a suitable new home.
In the midst of all of the parenting and housing troubles, Luke's company takes a huge financial hit. That means cutting back. And that means Becky and Minnie both have to learn to do without and to work with a budget.
Of course it's when things are at their most dire that Becky gets her most outlandish of plans. The bulk of this book, beyond the trying to learn how to rein in Minnie's impulses, is Becky trying to put on a huge surprise party to cheer up Luke.
I have to admit that I'm getting tired of Becky and Luke's inability to communicate. I get that the plot and gags have always hinged on this flaw of theirs but with Minnie now there is so much more at stake. Plus there is Luke who has sworn up and down how he won't be like his mother becoming more and more like her!
The seventh book is Shopaholic to the Stars (2014).
