Shopaholic & sister: Shopaholic Series, Book 4
Sophie Kinsella has conquered the hearts of millions with her New York Times bestselling Shopaholic novels, which feature the irresistible one-woman shopping phenomenon Becky Bloomwood. Now Becky ' s back in a hilarious, heartwarming tale of married life, best friends, and long-lost sisters (and the perils of simply having to own an Angel handbag!). What ' s a round-the-world honeymoon if you can ' t buy the odd souvenir to ship back home? Like the Chinese urns and twenty silk dressing gowns Becky found in Hong Kong ... the five kilim rugs from Turkey ... the splendid hand-carved dining table (and ten chairs) from Sri Lanka ... the, um, huge wooden giraffes from Malawi (that her husband Luke expressly forbade her to buy) ... Only now Becky and Luke have returned home to London and Luke is furious. Two truckloads of those souvenirs have cluttered up their usually immaculate loft, and the bills for them are outrageous. Becky ' s even maxed out on her second secret credit card, and she doesn ' t have a new job yet! Luke insists she go on a budget. And worse: her beloved best friend Suze has found a new best friend while Becky was away. Becky ' s feeling rather blue -- when her parents deliver some incredible news. She has a long-lost sister! Becky is thrilled! She ' s convinced her sister will be a true soulmate. They ' ll go shopping together, drink cappuccinos together, have manicures together, and watch their favorite videos together. Until she meets Jessica for the first time and gets the shock of her life. SurelyBecky Bloomwood ' s sister can ' t ... hate shopping? From the Hardcover edition.

BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Sophie Kinsella's Shopaholic to the Stars.
What's a round-the-world honeymoon if you can't buy the odd souvenir to ship back home? Like the twenty silk dressing gowns Becky Brandon (née Bloomwood) finds in Hong Kong, or the hand-carved dining table from Sri Lanka, or the, um, huge wooden giraffes from Malawi (that her husband expressly forbade her to buy).
Only now Becky and Luke have returned home to London, where two truckloads of those souvenirs have cluttered up their loft. The bills are outrageous, Luke is furious, and Becky's feeling rather blue—until her parents deliver some incredible news. She has a long-lost sister! Becky is convinced her sister will be a true soulmate. They'll go shopping together, drink cappuccinos together, get manicures together. Then Becky meets Jessica and receives the shock of her life. Surely the shopaholic's own sister can't hate shopping?
Praise for Sophie Kinsella
"Kinsella's heroine is blessed with the resilience of ten women, and her damage-limitation brain waves are always good for a giggle."—Glamour (U.K.)
"Kinsella has a genuine gift for comic writing."—The Boston Globe
"Kinsella's Bloomwood is plucky and funny. . . . You won't have to shop around to find a more winning protagonist."—People
"Faster than a swiping Visa, more powerful than a two-for-one coupon, able to buy complete wardrobes in a single sprint through the mall—it's Shopaholic!"—The Washington Post
