Emily Gray brightly portrays bride-to-be Becky Bloomwood in this third installment of the adventures of the young British shopaholic. Gray voices Becky convincingly, from the ingénue's happy moments of engagement to her continual moments of wedding-planning stress. The other characters, from bemused fiancé Luke to icy mother-in-law Eleanor, are also vividly conveyed. Emily Gray succeeds in providing believable British and American accents for a large set of distinctive characters. She does justice to the lively tone of the book without overdoing the dramatic scenes. Descriptions of famous New York interiors like Tiffany's and The Plaza are fun and well done. R.F.
