Summary and Review: taken from

“Nothing comes between Becky Brandon (née Bloomwood) and her bargains. Neither act of God nor budget crunch can shatter her dreams of wall-to-wall Prada. Every milestone in her well-shopped life (travel, long-lost sister, marriage, pregnancy) inspires new vistas to explore in the name of retail therapy. But now she faces her greatest little challenge yet: Becky’s two-year-old daughter, Minnie.”

While I enjoyed this book and the messes Becky gets herself into (and mostly out of) and her relationships with Luke, her parents, and her best friends, this book was missing something. It still had the humor, but I think it was missing the ‘cringe-worthy’ messes that Becky got herself into. The ones that were too painful to read. The ones that you understood, but kept shaking your head. This one, though enjoyable, felt watered down to me.
