I've read her whole series of Shopaholic books. In the beginning, the Becky character was very endearing, having no clue about finances and trying to get herself out of big messes. In Mini Shopaholic, Becky is now a mother. Still clinging to her old ways. She gets herself into big messes, acts like a child and has no control over her own child. I was really looking forward to reading this book but very disappointed. I had to force myself to finish reading. I think if there are anymore shopaholic books to come out, I'll have to pass.
