Publisher Comments:

Rebecca Bloomwood is a financial journalist — she spends her working life telling others how to manage their money. On the surface, she has what most twenty-five year olds only dream of: a flat in the trendiest part of London, a troupe of glamorous socialite friends, and a closet brimming with the season's must-haves. The only trouble is that she can't actually afford it — not any of it. Her job barely pays her rent, let alone her monthly Visa minimum. Still, how can she resist that perfect pair of shoes? Or that designer scarf that's 50% off?

Meanwhile, the credit card companies and bank managers converge like vultures, and their ominous letters grow ever harder to ignore. Becky tries cutting back; she even tries making more money. But nothing seems to work. Her only consolation is to buy herself something . . . just a little something...

Finally, a story arises that Becky actually cares about, and her front-page article catalyzes a chain of events that will transform her life — and the lives of those around her — forever.

Becky has a fab flat in London and all the most fashionable clothes. But she can't really afford any of it, her job is boring and doesn't bring in anywhere near enough for her to afford her lifestyle. She is sinking fast into debt. She tries to spend less, she tries making more, but she seems incapable of getting out of this hole, and she just keeps buying.

Funny and silly quick read. The writing was very good but I found Becky rather pathetic and weak-willed. I wanted to shake her and make her see what an idiot she was being. I was quite shocked at how unwilling to deal with her own problems she was, however she did seem to be making headway towards the end of the book. I will read the rest of the series in hopes that Becky grows up a little.

Better than Bridget Jones, Becky Bloomwood is the shopaholic in all of us. But with a higher overdraft, of course.

This is a book I can read, put back on the shelf, and pick up and read again every few years. A great read if you're feeling the impulse to go out and max out your Nordstrom card.
