#1 New York Times bestselling author Sophie Kinsella returns with another laugh-out-loud Becky Brandon (n#65533;e Bloomwood) adventure: a hilarious road trip through the American West to Las Vegas.

Becky is on a major rescue mission through the American West to Las Vegas! Her father has vanished from Los Angeles on a mysterious quest with the husband of Becky's best friend, Suze. Becky's mum is hysterical; Suze is flat-out desperate. Worse, Becky must tolerate an enemy along for the ride, who she's convinced is up to no good.

Determined to get to the bottom of why her dad has disappeared, help Suze, contain the dreaded Alicia, and reunite her fractured family, Becky knows that she must marshal all her trademark ingenuity. The result: her most outrageous and daring plan yet!

But just when her family needs her more than ever, can Becky pull it off?

Praise for Shopaholic to the Rescue

"Full of gags, sparkling dialogue and beautifully drawn characters . . . It's a real treat to be reunited with the eminently loveable, incredibly ditzy and fiercely loyal Shopaholic protagonist Becky Brandon (n#65533;e Bloomwood)." -- Daily Mail

"Will Bex and best friend Suze ever make up? Will Becky's old nemesis, banker Derek Smeath, finish his memoir? Why can't our beloved Shopaholic seem to spend any money, even on a $2.50 pencil? . . . This is escapism that will make you giggle out loud." --USA Today

"Readers can't help but be delighted. Kinsella never once loses Becky's voice and heart, which is one of the joys of the Shopaholic series." --Publishers Weekly

"Full of Becky's outrageous ideas, including a heist #65533; la Ocean's Eleven, this novel does not disappoint. . . . Kinsella adds a mystery and twists and turns at every corner in this latest work while maintaining Becky's signature voice." --Library Journal

Becky doesn't want to shop?!? Suze and Becky are fighting?!?
Alicia and Suze are best friends?!? Another easy and fun read from Kinsella!

Kinsella continues to delight the reader with this light hearted, funny, entertaining read. Lots of travel & adventure for Becky & her family with a story line that keeps the reader engaged. Perfect summer read!

This story was a continuation of her last book which ended on a "cliff hanger". I was curious about why her Dad had decided to go off to Las Vegas by himself so I picked up Kinsella's latest novel to see how she ended that story. It was an easy book to skim read in order to follow the story line and to skip over pages and pages of conversation between Becky and her mom, Becky and Minnie, her four year old, Becky and Suzy, Becky and herself. I thought Kinsella used some interesting techniques in getting her present reader familiar with the backstory and I could see the construction of the story around the touristy things to do in Las Vegas and the surrounding area. It did bring back memories of enjoyable trips to that area. However, for me, I have lost interest in Becky and her shopaholic ways and talk.

I love this series! It did end on a cliff hanger and now I have to wait for the next one :-(
Not like the past books. This is different. Not bad, not great either.

I hope I can remember what happened by the time the next one comes out
