Praise for Shopaholic to the Stars

'shopaholic Becky is funnier than ever as she tries to make it in Hollywood as a celeb stylist.''People

'Our beloved heroine Becky hilariously juggles motherhood and a new career. . . . Sophie Kinsella is such a genius.''Redbook

'It's impossible not to fall in love with Becky and her antics, and this latest offering doesn't disappoint. With appeal for fans of Kinsella's prior Shopaholic books, this one will draw in new fans as well. Like the first six in the series, [Shopaholic to the Stars] is screamingly funny and lots of fun.''Publishers Weekly (starred review)

'take the caustic wit of Gillian Flynn and the comedy of manners of Edith Wharton, add a British accent'that's Sophie Kinsella.''The Globe and Mail

"Fans of the series who love Becky just as she is (and has always been) will enjoy this seventh series entry. . . . Kinsella expertly plots this story and deftly drops in some unexpected twists.''Library Journal

'Becky is a truly engaging narrator. She may be self-centered, a shopping addict and a bit flighty, but she's also good-natured and genuinely funny. It's a joy to accompany her on her journey, no matter how tangled it seems at times. A light, enjoyable read that's pure escapism.''Kirkus Reviews

'Winsome Becky's romp through Hollywood will thoroughly entertain readers, and the novel's conclusion neatly paves the way for Becky's next adventure.''Booklist
