officialsynopBecky Brandon’s life is blooming. She’s working at London’s newest big store, The Look, house-hunting with husband Luke (her secret wish is a Shoe Room) . . . and she’s pregnant. She couldn’t be more overjoyed—especially after discovering that shopping cures morning sickness. Everything has to be perfect for her baby: from the designer nursery and the latest stroller to top-of-the-line medical care.

But when the must-have celebrity obstetrician Becky’s been so desperate to see turns out to be Luke’s glamorous, intellectual ex-girlfriend, Becky’s perfect world starts to crumble. She’s shopping for two . . . but are there three in her marriage?

officialreviewBecky Bloomwood is pregnant! Of course, these fashionable mom would only want the best and most beautiful for her kid. After learning that shopping is the best cure for her morning sickness and preggy cravings, she couldn’t wait to go hunting for baby stuffs! And then there’s the inevitable monthly doctor’s appointment so she and Luke could checkup on their baby. But wait, what’s this? Becky’s OB gynecologist is none other than Luke’s ex-girlfriend. And a very glamorous and fashion trendy doctor at that! Insecurity slowly creeps through Becky’s veins. Now that the ex is back, will Luke finally turn her eyes back to the doctor, especially since Becky feels ugly and looks bloated all the time?

Oh this has been another hilarious Becky-filled book. Pregnant Bloomwood is even scarier than jobless Becky, in my opinion, but she’s still as sweet as she can ever be. She even made me think about the times when I was pregnant with my three kids. I was insecure and angry most of the time. Good thing my kids came out fine (LOL). But her encounter with Luke’s ex was really something – I think it made her even more human and hysterical and likeable at the same time. Thanks Sophie Kinsella, I never had a dull moment whenever I read your books!
