I immediately started reading "Shopaholic Ties the Knot" after completion of "Shopaholic takes Manhattan." Although it was still filled with the quirky Becky Bloomwood, this time it had nothing to do with shopping. In a way this was good because it broke up some routine, and has she really solved her shopping problem? At the end, you find, no she hasn't.
If this had been the first book I read I can't say it'd bring me to read the rest. There were some lines that I thoroughly enjoyed, some because they made me laugh, and others were thought provoking or just very straightforward and true to heart. It's a fun summer light read and anyone looking for that should definitely pick it up. Again, unless you're a male and you probably wouldn't like it too much.
Becky found herself engaged and to top it off she had 2 weddings, in 2 different countries, and on 1 day! She can't bear to cancel either and whenever she does get the guts to do so, a complication arises. What will be her solution to accomplish this without stepping on any toes or angering either party? On top of this, Luke's hit midlife and the unavoidable crisis that followed and Becky can't burden Suze due to her new surprise. Becky has the biggest problems yet and she's all alone! or is she?
Characters followed suit again in this book, with some more depth to Elinor Sherman. The only character who appears empty is Alicia Bitch Longlegs (aka Alicia Billington). She unfortunately lost all character development and turned into an empty shell used for empty humor.
A question throughout the story? What are weddings about? Are they the bride's day to live out how she wants or are they a family celebration done for the enjoyment of others? This question receives many answers throughout the story and one of the ending lines of "And I don't care. I look exactly how I want to look." reveals the true answer.
