Rebecca(Becky) Bloomwood is a financial journalist with zero interest in finance and one hundred percent interest in shopping. She is in debt thanks to her addiction to shopping. But this does not stop her from shopping for more designer clothes, cosmetics and homeware. As her credit card bills amount to thousands of pounds she tries to cut back her spending but is not able to do so. For example when Becky tries to make her own curry to cut back her food expenses, she ends up buying a lot of new things like a recipe book, a spice grinder and lots of spices.
Her attempt to make more money also does not work out as planned. Now what will Becky do as her bills mount up and she has to somehow avoid a meeting with the bank manager?
This is a simple, humorous, well-written book. Do I want to read the sequels? I don't think so! 3 out of 5.
Trivia: This novel was initially published as The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic.
