This is week 14 of our 2016 Reading Challenge!


We’re visiting with an old friend, Becky Brandon (née Bloomwood), in Sophie Kinsella’s Shopaholic to the Rescue. Honestly, we took a break from Becky for awhile because her adventures started feeling a little silly. This time Becky and her closest friends, her ever patient husband, and her young daughter embark on an RV adventure to Las Vegas to rescue her father, who took off on a mysterious adventure. She’s still her wacky self in this one, but a break was just what we needed. Now we feel like we’re hanging with the crazy aunt we only see at family reunions, and we’ve missed her!

Until next week, happy reading!
