Becky Brandon thinks that having a daughter is a dream come true: a shopping friend for life! But two-year-old Minnie has a quite different approach to shopping. The toddler creates havoc everywhere she goes, from Harrods to her own christening. On top of everything else, Becky and Luke are still living with her parents (the deal on house #4 has fallen through), when suddenly there’s a huge nationwide financial crisis.
With people having to cut back, Becky decides to throw a surprise party for Luke to cheer everyone up. But when costs start to spiral out of control, she must decide whether to accept help from an unexpected source—and therefore run the risk of hurting the person she loves. Will Becky be able to pull off the celebration of the year? Will she and Luke ever find a home of their own? Will Minnie ever learn to behave? And . . . most important . . . will Becky’s secret wishes ever come true?

So I’m suspended and they’re going to do an investigation.” To be honest, I’ve been so frantic over the last few days I’ve barely given the investigation a thought. “But you saved our

God, everyone’s so busy. In the end, I get everyone to write down when they’re available in the next few months. Jess draws a grid and

I grab a basket and start filling it. “Jane!” A breathless voice greets us and I see Janice clutching a load of packets labeled solar garden lights. “Have you seen these? They can’t cost a pound, surely.” “I think everything’s a pound—” I begin, but she’s already tapping the shoulder of a salesgirl. “Excuse me,” she says politely. “How much is this item?” The
