Reading - Shopaholic Ties the Knot

Once again by Sophie Kinsella - Shopaholic Ties the Knot

Another entertaining entry in Kinsella's unabashedly fluffy Shopaholic series.

Life could not get any better for Becky Bloomwood, she has managed to parlay her personal and professional passions into a dream job as a personal shopper at Barney's, and her wildly successful boyfriend, Luke live a life of relative peace and prosperity in Manhattan's West Village. Well, at least they would if Becky could manage to curb her extravagant spending habits a bit. They've even opened a joint bank account (although they can't quite agree on whether a Miu Miu skirt counts as a household expense).

Then Luke proposes - and all of a sudden life gets hectic. Becky's cozy mum wants her to get married in Oxshott (at London) and wear her old frilly wedding dress. Luke's frosty society mother wants to host a grand extravaganza at the New York Plaza, complete with woodland glade and the NY Philharmonic.

Two weddings on the same day. Becky knows she has to sit down and decide - but to be honest, it's a lot more fun tasting cake, trying on dresses and registering wedding presents. Time's ticking by, plans are being made both sides of the Atlantic and soon she realises she's in trouble ......
