Publisher's Summary

Beloved by readers, Sophie Kinsella's national best seller, Confessions of a Shopaholic, introduced the irrepressible one-woman shopping phenomenon, Becky Bloomwood. Now, in this hilarious follow-up, Becky and her credit cards are headed across the Atlantic.

With her shopping excesses (somewhat) in check and her career as a TV financial guru thriving, Becky's biggest problem seems to be tearing her entrepreneur boyfriend, Luke, away from work for a romantic country weekend. And worse, figuring out how to "pack light." But packing takes on a whole new meaning when Luke announces he's moving to New York for business - and he asks Becky to go with him!

Before you can say "Prada sample sale," Becky has landed in the Big Apple, home of Park Avenue penthouses and luxury department stores.

Surely it's only a matter of time until she becomes an American TV celebrity, and she and Luke are the toast of Gotham society. Nothing can stand in their way, especially with Becky's bills miles away in London.

But then an unexpected disaster threatens her career prospects, her relationship with Luke, and her available credit line! Shopaholic Takes Manhattan - but will she have to return it?

This book is also known as Shopaholic Abroad.

    "Delightful!"

    I really enjoyed this book. This book is witty and funny right from the start. It is hard to put down just waiting to see what will happen next. The reader, Emily Gray really brings the characters to life. I can't wait to read the other two books in the series.

    "Not good"

    I know this is supposed to be light & fun reading; but I began to hate Becky. She is deceptive and manipulative, and lies to her loved ones. I couldn't root for her or care about how things turned out. For light reading, this was alot of work.

    "Better than the first"

    For some reason, I actually like this better than the first book. I find Becky's plight in this book somehow more relatable, and she's a bit quicker and smarter in her response to the situation. Emily Gray's narration is still spot on.

    "Same exact story, different setting"

    I am sad to say that I thoroughly disliked this book. I enjoyed “Confessions of a Shopaholic”. However, this is the same story with a different setting. I smiled my way through Confessions because this silly character seemed to learn from her mistakes. End of story? Nope. We get to read how Rebecca is NOT simply foolish in a charming way; but is just plain stupid (the chapel scene, really?). I enjoy a light, chick lit novel, I do not expect a literary masterpiece, but this book is just plain annoying.

    "If you love Sex & the City you'll love this"

    Ok so the average british girl doesn't have a job in TV or a mega rich boyfriend but this book provides some first class escapism, and if you have a soft spot for New York you'll enjoy all the references to sights of the Big Apple.

    Hadn't realised that I had already read the book because the name was changed.

    "Definitely not as good as the first, but enjoyable"
    Would you try another book written by Sophie Kinsella or narrated by Emily Gray?

    Sophie Kinsella is the queen of silly and enjoyable novels that are fun and escapist but manages to avoid creating complex or realistic characters that have any literary value further than a bubble bath and a few laughs.


    Any additional comments?

    If you enjoyed the first book, this is a nice follow on, but by no means literary genius.
