Christmas Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella - An hilarious and touching novel, perfect for the Christmas holidays!

There's still time to share Becky Brandon (neƩ Bloomwood's) Christmas preparations, especially if you are sitting by the fire with a glass of wine, worn out by all your festivities!
In this very funny novel, Christmas Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella, Becky, her hapless heroine, has a festive season where everything that can go wrong, really does, and that is enough to make anyone else's Christmas preparations seem like a sleigh-ride in the snow.
It all starts when her parents move to trendy Shoreditch and let Becky's sister, Jess, and her husband, Tom, who are hoping to adopt a child, stay in their house. This means that Becky will have to host Christmas for the first time at hers. As always, her husband, Luke is very supportive. I don't know how he puts up with her purchases and pandemonium. Though to be honest, she's very good at hiding all the things that she's bought!
Other characters also get involved in all the chaos, including Becky's old friend, Suze, who she works with at the Letherby Hall gift shop; Steph, who's got problems of her own; Janice, Tom's mum, and Becky's old flame, Craig and his girlfriend, Nadine.
Read it to see how she copes with purchasing the Christmas dinner, decorations and presents, keeping in mind that her sister is an eco-warrior, and find out what lengths she goes to to get Luke the perfect gift.
This is an hilarious and touching novel, perfect for the Christmas holidays!
