#1 New York Times bestselling author Sophie Kinsella returns with a festive new Shopaholic adventure filled with holiday cheer and unexpected gifts. 'Tis the season for change and Becky Brandon (nee Bloomwood) is embracing it, returning from the States to live in the charming village of Letherby and working with her best friend, Suze, in the gift shop of Suze's stately home. Life is good, especially now that Becky takes time every day for mindfulness . . . which actually means listening to a meditation tape while hunting down online bargains. But Becky still adores the traditions of Christmas: Her parents host, carols play on repeat, her mother pretends she made the Christmas pudding, and the neighbors come 'round for sherry in their terrible holiday sweaters. Things are looking cheerier than ever, until Becky's parents announce they're moving to ultra-trendy Shoreditch-unable to resist the draw of craft beer and smashed avocados-and ask Becky if she'll host this year. What could possibly go wrong? Her sister demands a vegan turkey, her husband insists that he just wants aftershave-again, and little Minnie demands a very specific picnic hamper: Surely Becky can manage all this, as well as the surprise appearance of an old-boyfriend-turned-rock-star and his pushy new girlfriend, whose motives are far from clear. But as the countdown to Christmas begins and her big-hearted plans take an unexpected turn toward disaster, Becky starts to wonder if chaos will ensue, or if she'll manage to bring comfort and joy to Christmas after all.

Delightful, humorous romance made so enjoyable by the excellent narrator.

Story started a bit slow, but once all the pieces were in place - it was a fun and entertaining listen. A bit predictable but fun.

I really enjoyed this book. I listened to it while I was working around the house and many times it made me literally laugh out loud. The theme of family and love in this book was felt throughout along with plenty of laughs. I also thought the narrator was wonderful by showing a difference in characters. I am currently listening to Shop... Ties the Knot and I do wish it had this narrator instead. I would definitely recommend.

This book is entirely consistent with the shopaholic series. Mindless, amusing entertainment with a lot of focus on shopping - coupled with several really feel good moments. Great for listening while doing chores and trying to get in the Christmas spirit. I’d give it 3 1/2 stars but that wasn’t an option so i rounded up to 4. One bad thing - the audio skipped a bit for me at the beginning of each chapter. Not sure what that was about. Thankfully it didn’t really affect the story.

I couldn’t even finish the book. The author details every article purchased to the smallest detail, I understand you want to paint a picture but it was too much. It seemed like I was listening to a friend go shopping rather than a story with a plot. Skip it!

I was looking so forward to reading another book in the shopaholic book series. I really missed the previous narrator of the books, it just did not sound like Becky, and seemed to be missing the usual laugh out loud story line.
