Boring. Shopaholic Becky is set up with her antithesis as long-lost sister, which makes for a decent idea for a book plot on the face of it. But pretty soon it degenerates into la-la land and becomes a Becky love-fest. At the end of the book, Becky even fights for small traders and the environment. By urging people to buy food from the local shop at full price so that they can beat the big chain stores. Now why didn't any of us think of that before?!!

Some moments of truth here when Becky confronts her sister - such as that she nay be spoiled, she always has someone to take care of her - are brought up and then whisked away to make the story more of a world rescues Becky story. The best written character in the book - Suze - is missing for the most part from this book, but has a cameo as a deus ex machina (literally) at the end of the book.

One star. Just not worth it. Read the next one, it deals with more familiar territory for Kinsella and her leading lady.
