Becky Bloomwood and a hilarious cast of beloved family and friends (plus one enemy!) set off in a van to find her missing father, last heard from in Las Vegas.
Becky’s father Graham and her best friend’s husband, Tarquin, have disappeared from Los Angeles saying simply they have “something to take care of.”
But Tarquin’s wife Suze who is Becky’s best friend, and Becky’s mother Jane, are convinced the two men are hiding something and are in danger—their imaginations run wild. They must track them down!
Hijinks ensue as husband Luke drives Becky, daughter Minnie, Jane, Suze and other favorite Kinsella characters across country from LA to Las Vegas in search of the missing men.
Becky feels deeply guilty about ignoring her father while he was in LA, in addition Becky feels her enemy Alicia is threatening her friendship with Suze
At the risk of sounding unpopular I did not enjoy this book as much as the other 7 books in the series. I think the storyline wasn’t as great as the other books have been, I think for me its getting a bit predictable but….
Saying all of the above I do still have plenty of positives for this book. It was good to see the old Becky back not the one from Shopaholic from the Stars.
I loved the character development this story had everyone (apart from Becky) are growing up and lives are developing. I also some what enjoyed the story Kinsella took us on all though as I said above it wasn’t the best storyline and predictable but in away that is what it makes it a comforting read a bit like comfort food if that makes sense. In parts it did give me laugh out loud moments (Becky moments) just like the other books have done. I would still defiantly read the next in the series (if there is one) to see where Becky takes us next. Another mad adventure to the shops I am sure
