Shopaholic & Baby

From  Elaine Pasquali

Title:  Shopaholic & Baby

Author:  Sophie Kinsella

Pregnant shopaholic Becky is egocentric and shallow.  She even witches obstetricians so that she may be delivered by the obstetrician to the stars, only to find out that the OB is her husband’s old girlfriend.  But when superficial Becky is confronted with personal, professional and financial crises, she  galvanizes into action and displays loyalty, initiative and logical thinking.  The first two thirds of this book were slow-going and repetitious.  I was about to put it down when it came alive.  I’m glad I finished the book, although I doubt that I will read another book in the Shopaholic series.
