Mini Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella cover & synopsis

I have been meaning to post this last week but didn’t get the chance to till today. One of my favorite authors for Adult books would be Sophie Kinsella so when I heard about Mini Shopaholic, I was undoubtedly excited to read it! 🙂 And now, the cover and synopsis has been released! What an adorable cover!

“Becky Brandon (nee Bloomwood) thought motherhood would be a breeze – but it’s trickier than she thought. Two-year-old Minnie is a little tearaway who has created havoc everywhere from Harrods to Harvey Nicks to her own christening. She hires taxis at random, her favourite word is ‘Mine’, and she already has a penchant for Balenciaga bags. Becky is at her wits’ end.

On top of this, she and Luke are still living with her Mum and Dad, there’s a big financial crisis so everyone’s having to Cut Back – including all her personal shopping clients – and her husband Luke is feeling low after the death of his beloved stepmother. To cheer Luke up, Becky decides to throw him a surprise birthday party – on a budget – and that’s when things become really complicated. As Becky tries to keep the arrangements secret, misunderstandings and excuses sprout everywhere, and soon she’s told so many fibs she can’t keep track of them. Will Becky pull off the surprise? Will Minnie give everything away? Will Minnie’s godparents ever stop arguing? Who will end up on the naughty step and who will get a gold star? And what will happen when Becky discovers Luke is keeping a big secret too?”

I will be doing more cover posts next week so be sure to look out for them. A lot of covers sent me squeeing because they were GORGEOUS!
