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? (taken from Chick Lit Reviews)

So who isn’t excited about this? I Can. Not. Wait! I love love love Becky Bloomwood and can’t wait to meet her mini shopaholic! There’s been much debate about the cover, which a lot of people aren’t keen on, especially as it doesn’t really match the rest in the series. Personally I kind of like it, it’s cute! The only thing I’m not so keen on is the colour and style of the font. At the end of the day though, this is one cover where I couldn’t care less what it’s like as I’ll be buying the book as soon as humanly possible anyway.
The US cover is yet to be revealed but I’ll update you all as soon as it is!
