As readers of the Shopaholic series will know, I have never described Becky and Luke's honeymoon, which happens after they get married in Shopaholic Ties the Knot. So as a free update for Shopaholic fans, I have decided to share with you one of the adventures of the newly-wed Becky and Luke. I hope you enjoy it! Love Sophie x The new Mr and Mrs Brandon are on honeymoon, and Becky has big plans! They've got a whole year to explore Venice, learn yoga in India, sleep in little wooden huts in South America... maybe even see penguins in the Antarctic. And of course they'll need to buy just a few essential souvenirs along the way (everyone needs a set of Murano glass goblets, after all). They're not just tourists, they're travellers. Becky is sure it is just the thing that Luke needs - time to unwind. He'll come back a changed man... with all the good bits still intact of course. But it soon becomes clear that Luke has different plans entirely. Can Becky help him let go, or will this little disagreement threaten their whole honeymoon?… (mais)

Well-written, but definately not a series for me....

Becky is such a ditz! And spoiled princess to boot, she wants everything she sees and she want it now. And if she doesn't get it, she'll throw a tantrum and pout like a 4-year old...

Ehhh. So this was kind of the beginning of the end for me with this series. Becky was just insufferable in my mind on how she was behaving while on honeymoon with Luke. The concept of money just does not factor into her head. And this book sets up the problems that will be front and center in the next full novel, "Shopaholic and Sister." Becky sees something and imagines her as the girl with the Venetian glasses or the girl with the art easel and she realizes her reality is not like the fantasy in her head. I applauded how well she took care of things in the last book, but she said some nasty things IMHO to Luke in this one.

The big fight in this one though goes back to Becky wanting to take a year long damn honeymoon. At this point in the story they have taken a month off. I don't know what else to say except I was not weeping for Becky or her ridiculous self by the end of this one.

I read somewhere that Kinsella was going to end the series when Becky and Luke got married and she really should have. Up until this short story and the next novel you don't see how selfish and honestly manipulative Becky is. ( )

Cute short story. ( )

This is a short novella - more a short story, really - which is available in Kindle form only, as a free download. It fills a little of the gap between the novels ‘Shopaholic ties the knot, and ‘Shopaholic and Sister’.

In this episode, we find Becky and her husband Luke in Venice, about a month into their honeymoon. She has evidently bought - and shipped - a large number of souvenirs, and decides on new interests and hobbies, albeit short-lived. Undoubtedly she would be annoying in real life, but for a bit of escapism I love reading about her escapades, which are so different from mine!

I know this was written after the other books and only intended to be a short filler story, but I was disappointed when it ended. I’d have liked a bit more.
Still, it made ideal reading on a flight. It’s some time since I read the other books in the series but that didn’t matter at all.

Recommended if you like the Shopaholic series, although it would probably work as a standalone story too.

Luke and Becky Brandon

The Story

Oh what it must be like to live in Becky Bloomwood’s world. She and Luke are good for each other, but it won’t be easy for them.

The Random Thoughts

This story has renewed my love for Becky.
