Book Description

BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Sophie Kinsella’s Shopaholic to the Stars.

Life has been good to Becky Bloomwood: She’s become the top personal shopper at Barneys and she’s living happily with her boyfriend, Luke, in Manhattan’s West Village. But with her best friend, Suze, engaged, how can Becky fail to notice that her own ring finger is bare? Not that she’s been thinking about marriage (or diamonds) or anything.
 
Then Luke proposes! Problem is, two other people are planning her wedding: Becky’s overjoyed mother—who has been waiting forever to host a backyard wedding, with the bride resplendent in Mum’s frilly old gown; and her high-society soon-to-be mother-in-law—who insists on a glamorous, all-expenses-paid affair at the Plaza. Both weddings, on separate continents, on the same day . . . and Becky can’t seem to turn down either one. Can everyone’s favorite shopaholic tie the knot before everything unravels?

    From Booklist

    Another entertaining entry in Kinsella's unabashedly fluffy Shopaholic series. Life could not get any better for Becky Bloomwood, the irresistibly daft heroine of Confessions of a Shopaholic (2001) and Shopaholic Takes Manhattan (2002). She has managed to parlay her personal and professional passions into a dream job as a personal shopper at Barney's, and she and her wildly successful boyfriend live a life of relative peace and prosperity in Manhattan's West Village. Well, at least they would if Becky could manage to curb her extravagant spending habits a bit. When Luke finally pops the question, a euphoric Becky manages to entangle herself in another rather sticky predicament. Becky's cozy mum back in England has planned a homespun wedding for her only daughter on the same day for which Luke's frosty society mother has booked the Plaza in New York. Two weddings on the same day, what's a committed consumer to do? Chock-full of the charming antics and asides that made the first two installments hilarious best-sellers. Margaret Flanagan

    4.0 out of 5 stars Shopaholic seals the deal May 27, 2003
    Format:Paperback
    I'm not sure where Sophie Kinsella will go with this series after Becky inevitably has a baby in the next book (Shopaholic Drives the Carpool?) but Shopaholic Ties the Knot was a quick, fun read. I've read the first two books in the series, but I think you would enjoy it even if you haven't read them. This book actually gets a little deeper than the first two, with Luke (Becky's ever-patient fiance) having some real issues with his cold mother. The main plot, of whether Becky should have her wedding in New York or London, is pretty insubstantial and it's fairly easy to figure out about halfway through which side of the ocean is going to win out. That said, I thoroughly enjoyed the journey and look forward to Kinsella's next book about Luke and Becky. Actually, I don't know if Becky is really even the Shopaholic in this book.... she seems to have cut down a little on her spending.
    I'm giving this one 4 stars only because the extra star would give it Bridget Jones quality, which it is not. Grab this one for an airplane ride or a day at the beach. The time will pass quickly.

    5.0 out of 5 stars In typical Becky fashion... March 11, 2003
    Format:Paperback
    Reading the Shopaholic series has got to be the most fun I've had (reading-wise!) in a long time. Sophie Kinsella has created a genius character in Becky Bloomwood and a hilarious -- yet frustrating -- storyline for her in all three books, and I just can't get enough!
    This time around, Becky has finally got it under control. She is happily paired with boyfriend, Luke; they are living together in fabulous New York City; Becky's job as personal shopper at Barney's couldn't be better; and things are going well with her family and friends. But when attending best friend, Suze's, wedding, Becky realizes there is something missing her life -- an engagement ring. However, Luke is one step ahead of the game -- he proposes to Becky and all is well with the world...or so it seems...
    Suddenly, Becky finds herself in a new dimension of bridal registries, wedding planners, engagement parties and more! Her old shopping habits rise to the surface when it comes to picking out cookware -- I mean, who doesn't need a state-of-the-art toaster? But believe it or not, there is a much worse predicament that Becky's got herself into -- she's somehow agreed to getting married in two different places. Now how is she going to get herself out of this mess? Read on to find out...
    Shopaholic Ties the Knot is pure fun. Becky is just as outrageous as ever, although this time, I believe, she is also pretty frustrating. Sophie Kinsella has done an excellent job with this new chapter in Becky's life and if you loved the first or second book, you won't be disappointed with the third. The ending of this novel left room for another in this series -- let's hope and pray Sophie Kinsella is listening. Becky Bloomwood is one character I'd rather not do without.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Our Favorite Shop-Till-You-Drop Girl Is Back March 12, 2003
    Format:Paperback
    Loyal followers of the Shopaholic series have seen Becky Bloomwood through a lot of things---but now life has never been better for Becky. Not only does she have her dream job (personal shopper at Barney's) and live in a shopper's paradise (Manhattan) but she has just become engaged to long-time boyfriend Luke via a highly romantic and original proposal. Nothing could go wrong for Becky now, or could it? If Becky's mother is planning a traditional family wedding in England while Luke's mother is planning the most extravagant wedding imagineable at the fashionable Plaza in New York and both weddings are scheduled for the same day, you mighy say Becky has a problem. The girl who could never say no to a Vera Wang dress, a Prada sample sale, or new shoes from Christian Louboutin apparently can't say no to either wedding. But even Becky can't be two places at one time, or can she?
    Becky still has an eye for a fine piece of apparel, but it is Luke who has tremendous character growth in this installment, as he becomes less of an accessory for Becky and a multi-layered man in his own right. Old friends like Suze, Tarquin, and Tom from next door are also there as Becky's wedding day approaches with all the laughter, angst, and turmoil we've come to expect from Sophie Kinsella's brilliant series.

    3.0 out of 5 stars A bit of a disappoinment July 5, 2003
    Format:Paperback
    Having read the whole series in a matter of a week, I would recommend the trilogy. However, Ties the Knot was my least favorite because I expected a lot more. While Becky isn't nearly as shallow as she was in the first two books and her shopping adventures curtailed, she didn't develop as much as I would have liked. She still reasons everything away instead of owning up. By the third installment, I wanted to see character development and it just wasn't there. So, Becky's shtick of excuses, schemes and indecision, get very old and annoying in Ties the Knot.
    The thing that bothered me the most was the main plot. The whole concept of the two weddings was too ridiculous and boring to sustain a whole book. It also showed that Becky really hasn't learned from her past experiences and was as immature as ever. It was frustrating at times to keep reading as it went around in endless circles. The ending was ludicrous and I could spot it coming a mile away.
    I wish Kinsella would have finally let Becky grow-up a little, take responsibility and make a decision, instead of the constant schemes and saves that always seem to happen. This plot highlighted the fact that Becky was still very deceptive, even to her fiancee, and it turned me off to her character somewhat.
    Instead of the whole wedding plot at the forefront, I would have preferred Luke's character being fleshed out even more than it was. I found myself wanting to know more about him and Becky's relationship; What about Becky does he love? Why does he put up with her nonsense? Generally, more dialogue between the two!
    On the plus side, I love following the character through the series. I also like that nothing happens that doesn't figure in somewhere down the line.
