MiniReview: Shopaholic to the Rescue (Shopaholic #8) by Sophie Kinsella

Shopaholic to the Rescue by Sophie Kinsella
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Book Review:

A proper happy ending that was sorely missing from the previous book in the series.

That one was kind of a unfinished tale which is not the sort of thing one expects from Kinsella but she tied up all the loose ends in this one.

It isn't in line with the style of the previous shopaholic books either, which makes me wonder why Kinsella chose to step away from a tried and tested winning formula in an extremely popular series.

She may well have tried such a different type of story in a standalone - she does have many
enjoyable standalone novels as well, of course, and they are all fun in their own way.

Why make such a change in story line and structure in this popular series? Only she can tell.

I did enjoy this books due to my love of the characters, but as Kinsella stories go, I did not especially like either the pace or the setting. Of course it was a good read, just not something I have come to expect from Kinsella is all.
