#1 New York Times bestselling author Sophie Kinsella returns with a festive new Shopaholic adventure filled with holiday cheer and unexpected gifts.


‘Tis the season for change and Becky Brandon (née Bloomwood) is embracing it, returning from the States to live in the charming village of Letherby and working with her best friend, Suze, in the gift shop of Suze’s stately home.

Life is good, especially now that Becky takes time every day for mindfulness–even if that only means listening to a meditation tape while hunting down online bargains.

But Becky still adores the traditions of Christmas: Her parents hosting, carols playing on repeat, her mother pretending she made the Christmas pudding, and the neighbors coming ’round for sherry in their terrible holiday sweaters.

Things are looking cheerier than ever, until Becky’s parents announce they’re moving to ultra-trendy Shoreditch–unable to resist the draw of craft beer and smashed avocados–and ask Becky if she’ll host this year.

What could possibly go wrong?

Becky’s sister demands a vegan turkey, her husband insists that he just wants aftershave (again), and little Minnie needs a very specific picnic hamper: Surely Becky can manage all this, as well as the surprise appearance of an old boyfriend-turned-rock star and his pushy new girlfriend, whose motives are far from clear.

But as the countdown to Christmas begins and her bighearted plans take an unexpected turn toward disaster, Becky wonders if chaos will ensue, or if she’ll manage to bring comfort and joy to Christmas after all.

    It's been four long years since Becky Brandon, née Bloomwood, graced readers with a lighthearted adventure full of humor, warmth, and shopping. . . . Longtime fans will welcome Becky's return, but even readers new to the Shopaholic world will connect with the themes of the sandwich generation, marriage woes, and holiday spectacles that can threaten any family gathering.
    Kirkus Reviews
    November 9, 2020
    Becky is still a hardworking, eminently lovable character who just wants to do the right thing, even if she usually screws everything up and finds herself in hilariously awful situations. . . . A laugh-out-loud funny book that will delight longtime Kinsella fans and those looking for a cozy holiday story.

    The return of Kinsella's quirky and lovable characters who show genuine connection is reason enough to enjoy this story, but watching Becky overcome obstacles, self-imposed or otherwise, is inspirational. Readers might come for the laughs, but they'll leave with a warm heart.
