Meet the Character: 

Becky Bloomwood is an English woman who lives to shop - whether she can afford to or not! In the first book she lives in London but later moves to New York City with her boyfriend. Her need for shopping lands her in all kinds of trouble, especially since she is a financial adviser for a television program! Often her friends and family try to keep Becky out of the red, but that does not stop her. Even though Becky's addiction is troublesome, her charm and wit make her a beloved heroine to Kinsella's loyal readers.
