Summary

Becky's life is blooming! She's working at London's newest fashion store, The Look; house-hunting with her husband, Luke (her secret wish is a Shoe Room); and...she's pregnant! She couldn't be more overjoyed, especially since she's discovered that shopping cures morning sickness. Everything has got to be perfect for her baby, from the designer nursery to the latest, coolest pram to the celebrity, must-have obstetrician. But when the celebrity obstetrician turns out to be her husband's glamorous, intellectual ex-girlfriend, Becky's perfect world starts to crumble. She's shopping for two...but are there three in her marriage?

Critic reviews

"Kinsella's ode to baby blues is both sly and slapstick....[She] mines a rich vein by tweaking 21st-century glossy mag obsessions: from sonograms to the hottest baby strollers to tricked-out birthing rooms." ( Publishers Weekly)

Becky in top form

Good listen. Fun and interesting and a little educational as well. Becky keeps changing for the good but still has her own ideas that are crazy and genius at the same time. Alicia doesn't disappoint either, she's bitchy as always.

Another episode to enjoy

I have enjoyed Beccy Brandon's previous adventures, and this one was almost as much fun. It didn't have the same sparkle as previous chapters, which I think was due to a few things.
The narrator wasn't as engaging as the previous reader. This book was abridged, so I feel like I missed out on some of the continuity. I also thought that the audio quality wasn't as sharp.
Overall, this was a fun read, but I do wonder what Sophie could come up with next to keep Beccy fresh and fun, warts and all.
