With her shopping excesses (somewhat) in check and her career as a TV financial guru thriving, Becky Bloomwood's biggest problem seems to be tearing her entrepreneur boyfriend, Luke, away from work for a romantic country weekend. That is, until Luke announces he's moving to New York for business--and he asks Becky to go with him Before you can say "Prada sample sale," Becky has landed in the Big Apple, home of Park Avenue penthouses and luxury department stores.
Surely it's only a matter of time until Becky becomes an American celebrity. She and Luke will be the toast of Gotham society. Nothing can stand in their way, especially with Becky's bills an ocean away in London. But then an unexpected disaster threatens her career prospects, her relationship with Luke, and her available credit line. Becky may have taken Manhattan--but will she have to return it?

About the Author
Some people say I think like a child. Well, as a children's book author, I don't think that's such a bad thing. In school, when I was about 11, there were four of us who hung out together. We liked to listen to old-time jazz, play mah jong and walk in the country. The other girls thought we were weird and laughed at us. Sometimes it hurt but at least we had each other. Children can be so unkind. I hope that through Tizzy, a few kids at least might stop and think before teasing someone just because they're different. A J Oliver
