Shopaholic Abroad by Sophie Kinsella.

This is the second book featuring the fabulously neurotic Rebecca Bloomwood and takes her shopping obsession all the way to New York.

She is now in a relationship with the work obsessed Luke and together they take a trip to the shopping capital of the world. 

I absolutely love the backwards logic Becky applies to shopping, she could talk herself into buying everything and despite the item being nothing she would ever need in her life, she always manages to convince herself that she really needs it.  She gets sucked into offers even though they're not good value for money at all.  And once again we see her debt mounting up.

Becky takes some knocks in this book and despite all her faults, I love her character.  Even when things are her fault, you can't help but pray that everything turns out well for her.

I really enjoyed this book, and am firmly getting into the Shopaholic series.  The books don't fail to disappoint when you're in need of some easy-to-read chick-lit that is guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

The back page blurb:
For Rebecca Bloomwood, life is peachy. She has a job on morning TV, her bank manager is actually being nice to her, and when it comes to spending money, her new motto is Buy Only What You Need - and she's really (sort of) sticking to it. The icing on the brioche is that she's been offered a chance to work in New York.
New York! The Museum of Modern Art! The Guggenheim! The Metropolitan Opera House! And Becky does mean to go to them all. Honestly. It's just that it seems silly not to check out a few other famous places first. Like Saks. And Bloomingdales. And Barneys. And one of those fantastic sample sales where you can get a Prada dress for $10. Or was it $100? Is Becky too dazzled to care?
