Shopaholic & Sister by Sophie Kinsella
We were visiting my son and his girlfriend in Toronto and someone had left a pile of books with a free sign in the hallway. So I grabbed two Sophie Kinsella novels. Never heard of her but they looked like fun, so what the hey?
Well I opened Shopaholic & Sister and chuckled my way through the entire book. The characters are out-of-their-minds eccentric . . . worst or best of all is shopaholic Becky Bloomwood. As I'm not much of a shopper, I found her to be totally outside my realm of understanding and at the same time totally riveting.
Becky learns that she has a half-sister and is determined to become her best friend and true sister. The problem is that Jess Bertram is a miser. The two of them are destined to clash in a big way.
I love how the book ends and I think I will be reading the whole series over the summer.
Definitely a fun summer read!!
