Shopaholic & Baby (Shopaholic #5) by Sophie Kinsella

Shopaholic and Baby (Shopaholic, #5)

Everything is perfect for Becky. She's pregnant, her and Luke have a fabulous house they're going to be buying (it even has a shoe room!), she's having a great time shopping for her baby, and she has a obstetrician who deals with all the celebrities, and she's going to be in Vogue. Perfect, that is, until she finds out that her obstetrician is Luke's ex-girlfriend. At first, everything is okay, but Luke begins to keep secrets from her and  goes out with Venetia (the obstetrician) without Becky. Becky also has a lot of other problems to deal with, and when she  tries to tell Luke that Venetia is after him, he doesn't believe her. Is their marriage in trouble?

It's nice to see that in this story Becky has turned her spending habits for herself down a notch. Instead, she spends for her baby. Does her baby really need 5 prams? Apparently... She doesn't know whether she's having a boy or a girl, so how does she decide what to get? The solution: things for both! I think Kinsella did a great job on this one, especially with portraying Venetia and Becky's frustration towards her. The story was cute, funny, and enjoyable, and Becky Bloomwood followers will enjoy this addition to her series. I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series. :) 4 out of 5 stars.
