A short story from the author of Cupcakes at Carrington’s – and a prequel to Christmas at Carrington’s!
Georgie Hart can’t believe her luck. It looks like Tom, the hunky boss of Carrington’s Department Store, in the picture-postcard town of Mulberry-on-Sea, is as hot for her as she is for him. After a romantic Italian get-together leaves her on Cloud Nine, Georgie is brought back down to earth with a bump when she has to get back behind the counter of the Luxury Handbags section.
But when Georgie is left open-mouthed by a revelation from one of her well-heeled customers, it seems like Tom hasn’t been entirely honest with her. Has Georgie done her usual trick of adding two and two together to make five?
Ever wondered what happened when Georgie first got together with Mr Carrington himself? This deliciously funny short story is perfect for anyone who loved Cupcakes at Carrington’s, and for those discovering the lovable Georgie Hart for the first time. The story also features an exclusive peek at the next book, Christmas at Carrington’s.
My opinion: I found out about this short story just as I finished reading Cupcakes at Carrington’s and just had to preorder it to get my next fix!
I was not disappointed! This is another fantastic read and we get to meet some of our favourite characters again. We also get to meet Georgie’s new assistant on the Luxury Handbag section and a few new rich customers.
Tom doesn’t make an appearance until quite late in the book and my heart was in my mouth for a good chunk of the story wondering what would happen next!
This book is a lovely little appetiser before Christmas at Carrington’s is published, and contains an excerpt of it at the end. The only problem is I want to read it NOW!!
My rating: A fabulous five stars!
