I picked this book while going through the books at the library because I had some extra time. Also because the cover page was nice :-)

Basically a time-pass book, there is a definite plot and a story attached to it but its one of those usual daytime soap stuff you'll find. If you know Sex and the City, you will see that this more of its kind. So just sit back and enjoy the book and dont think much - is the idea!
I grabbed this at the library on a whim. It's kind of the novel equivalent of a mindless television show, focused mostly on shopping and soap operas. I found it entertaining in a "don't have to think too much" way, and the author did develop the characters & plot more in the second half so it had a little depth to it. Definitely a PG13 story.
This was not good at all. The main character, Alana, was so annoying and had absolutely no redeemable qualities. Hailey was a tad bit better, but not much. I felt that the characters lives were not flushed out. I wanted to know more about their back stories. Hailey was more interesting and, I felt had a much better storyline.
This is about a couple of shopaholics,that like to go shopping and call it therapy.One totally blind to finances,and the other one who knows but spends anyways.They meet a new friend and she whips them into shape about spending habits.Funny along the way,with a few very good laughs! I enjoyed this book very much!

I thought this book was somewhat entertaining, but I was bored by the "spoiled little rich girl" storyline. It redeemed itself somwhat by the end.
