Genre: Chick Lit
It this second book of Kinsella’s Sophaholic series, we find Becky Bloomwood is now a TV financial advisor. Becky is spending much of her time convincing her boyfriend, Luke, that there is more to life than just working. She convinces him to go away on a weekend trip, but she’s told to “pack light” and that’s more than just a small problem for Becky.
When Becky learns that Luke has been keeping a secret from her – a huge secret like his relocating to
Unfortunately, Becky’s shopaholic tendencies come back to haunt her and threatens Luke’s career as well. Becky tries to do damage control, but this time, she just may have ruined both her relationship and their careers.
I loved the first book in this series and this book is a good one too, but I was starting to find Becky’s repeating her mistakes from book one to be a bit tiresome in this one. I don’t know if it’s because of the current economic climate or because I wanted her to learn something after the first book, but this book had me rolling my eyes. Although, it also had me laughing out loud and rooting for her to have a happy ending.
Of course I’ll continue reading this series. I want to see how it all wraps up. Becky is a loveable character and readers do find themselves wanting her to succeed, even when she drives you crazy. LOL
