What's the Story?:

From "Becky’s father Graham and her best friend’s husband, Tarquin, have disappeared from Los Angeles saying simply they have “something to take care of.”

But Tarquin’s wife Suze who is Becky’s best friend, and Becky’s mother Jane, are convinced the two men are hiding something and are in danger—their imaginations run wild. They must track them down!

Hijinks ensue as husband Luke drives Becky, daughter Minnie, Jane, Suze and other favorite Kinsella characters across country from LA to Las Vegas in search of the missing men.

Becky feels deeply guilty about ignoring her father while he was in LA, in addition Becky feels her enemy Alicia is threatening her friendship with Suze."

My Two Cents:

"Shopaholic to the Rescue" is book number eight in Sophie Kinsella's Shopaholic series. These books are so much fun. I've read every single one and they are like candy for the brain. In this book, Becky is trying to find her dad and her best friend's husband. Her best friend is mad at her and Becky can't quite figure out what's going on with her husband.

The book is fast paced and feels frazzled, which is extremely fitting for the book. There's a road trip and a crazy chase from place to place in the Western U.S. that holds down all of the things happening between the various characters. And if you know Becky, by now you know that frazzled is just a part of the territory. Which brings up a good point, this book is best for those that have read all or at least most of the prior Shopaholic books. If you haven't read them, you are going to be confused about the characters and all of the various relationships between all of the characters.

This is definitely a comfort read. I love that the characters feel so familiar to me now! Overall, this is a good pick for anyone looking for a funny book that has fallen in love with Becky the Shopaholic before!
