Becky Bloomwood, the woman who knows how to turn any situation into a crazy fiasco, has done it again in Shopaholic Ties the Knot. So she’s not in loads of debt in this novel, but she is in a bit of a crazy situation. The novel starts with Becky’s best friend, Suze, getting married. What happens next? If you guessed that Becky and Luke get engaged, then you’re right! So you’re probably thinking, “oh I know what the crazy situation will be. She’ll become a crazy bride and the wedding plans will …” Let me stop you right there. Contrary to what many of you may think, Becky doesn’t become a crazy bride, instead she starts planning, not one, but two weddings. Oh, and did I mention they’re on different continents?
Wedding A: planned by Becky’s mom is to take place on June 22 in her parent’s backyard in England.
Wedding B: planned by Luke’s estranged mother, Elinor, is to take place on June 22 at the Plaza Hotel, New York.
Not a problem though, right? Wrong!
Pick up Shopaholic Ties the Knot if:
– you like laughing out loud
– you hated Alicia Bitch Longlegs in the previous books
– you love wedding talk
– you want to know what the deal is with Elinor (aka the ice queen, better known as Luke’s estranged mother)
– you secretly want to plan two weddings on two continents and want to know how to pull it off
I’ll admit, this book still gave me the shopping bug, but it’s a lot more tender than the previous two in the series (Confessions of a Shopaholic and Shopaholic Takes Manhattan). You’ll definitely see a new side to all the characters you’ve grown to love and hate. Definitely a great read. Once you start, it’ll be hard to put down though! (Don’t say I didn’t warn you!)
