Book Review: Shopaholic Ties the Knot by Sophie Kinsella

Life has been good for Becky Bloomwood: She’s become the best personal shopper at Barneys, she and her successful entrepreneurial boyfriend, Luke, are living happily in Manhattan’s West Village, and her new next-door neighbor is a fashion designer! But with her best friend, Suze, engaged, how can Becky fail to notice that her own ring finger is bare? Not that she’s been thinking of marriage (or diamonds) or anything . . . Then Luke proposes! Bridal registries dance in Becky’s head. Problem is, two other people are planning her wedding: Becky’s overjoyed mother has been waiting forever to host a backyard wedding, with the bride resplendent in Mum’s frilly old gown. While Luke’s high-society mother is insisting on a glamorous, all-expenses-paid affair at the Plaza. Both weddings for the same day. And Becky can’t seem to turn down either one. Can everyone’s favorite shopaholic tie the knot before everything unravels?

My Thoughts 
Sophie Kinsella does not disappoint.  I love Becky Bloomwood and her crazy life that she leads!  She gets into her fair share of trouble this time around as well. Seriously would we love her as much if she didn't?  Of course not!
Becky has the dream job that I would DIE for!  Who would not want to be a personal shopper and shop each and every day at Barney's?  (I will admit that it would be a little difficult to give up my favorite pieces to others but I am up for the challenge!) 
Becky is starting to feel the pressure of where her life is going, especially when Suze gets married, then gets pregnant shortly thereafter.  Yet still Becky is only dating and living with her boyfriend, the handsome Luke.
Does she want to settle down?  Does she want to start a family?  WILL LUKE EVER PROPOSE?  And then....he does!
Becky goes into full on wedding mode - registries are perfect for Becky - hello more shopping!  She has over 5 by the end of the day!  And then the problem of the year strikes - will the wedding be in England or in the US and who will be planning it?  Becky is back to her typical self and not able to make a decision or tell anyone no!  There are two weddings (that couldn't be more different) being planned at the same time in two different countries!
What will happen in the end, only time will tell in the crazy tale that ends at the alter, or does it? Only time (and a little money) will tell!

Drink
