Review

‘Defies the chick lit cliché.’ – Heat magazine

'Cupcakes at Carrington's is deliciously delightful from start to finish, sprinkled with magic and full of heart.' Miranda Dickinson

‘I loved it. 5/5’ – iheart-chicklit.blogspot.co.uk

‘So much more than just a chick lit novel. It has the humour of Sophie Kinsella, the warmth of Cecelia Ahern and the wit and wisdom of Maeve Binchy and the cheek of Are You Being Served?’ – Jamieson Villeneuve, Thebookpedler.wordpress.com

‘My favourite book this year – funny, romantic and fabulous!’ – readinginthesunshine.wordpress.com

‘I loved Cupcakes At Carrington’s, a warm, witty, loveable read with plenty of sparkle and charm.’ – Rowan Coleman

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the wait! 16 Feb. 2013
By S. A. Broadhurst VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
This was one of the books I was looking forward to in 2013 and I have not been disappointed!

The book is set in a top department store and the main character, Georgie, works there, surrounded by high quality and luxury goods, which she sells to the customers. She loves her job but also loves high quality lifestyles which has done serious damage to her bank balance and credit rating! However, when Maxine is drafted in to guide the company through a recession-busting makeover, Georgie is left fighting for her job.

I really enjoyed this book, it is a lighthearted read with a number of story lines running through the book, culminating in a great ending which has left me already looking forward to the second in the promised trilogy set within Carrington's.There are a number of interesting characters who I am already looking forward to meeting again in the other two books in the trilogy, each have their own story which when woven together make a great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVED IT!!!!! 22 Oct. 2014
Format:Paperback
Finally!!! I’ve bought this book last December together with Christmas at Carrington’s (will be part of my Christmas feature) and I actually can’t believe how long it took me to pick it up and read it. I’ve heard so many great things about it from my blogger friends and they were SO right, I absolutely loved it!!!!

The story follows Georgie Hart, a sweet, adorable and bubbly heroine. She work in the women’s department of Carrington’s and she’s really happy with it. I have to say, I wouldn’t say no to a job like that ;).

But then everything changes, when a woman called Maxine turns up and wants to change everything. Suddenly Georgie sees herself competing against her boss James and against gorgeous Tom.
Georgie’s always had a thing for James, but he’s married and it turns out he had a thing with Maxine. And Tom?! Well, one thing is for sure he’s really attractive, but why does he appears out of the blue, who is he?! You'll find out when you read the story, let me just tell you this: It gives the whole situation a completely different light.

Georgie is always faced with her past from time to time, which doesn’t make this whole situation easier. I was so glad for her to have Sam (her best friend) and Eddie (work colleague and friend). They were there for her all the time and brought some great spark into the story. Especially Eddie, I loved him! Adorable, gay Eddie, the best friend a woman can wish for. The characters were all so well lined out and adorable. The mixture between them was great and reading Georgie’s point of view was very refreshing and great. Alex’s writing is fresh, young, bubbly and full of sweet and heart-warming moments.

Towards the end the drama increased dramatically, which was great and I didn’t know how it would turn out, which is always a great thing!!! This book is brilliant!!! The epilogue was sweet and I can’t wait to read the rest of this series!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Saturday Afternoon Read 21 Jun. 2014
By Netnlee
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't normally read romance novels, being a more gritty thriller/crime reader BUT, I found this free on the Amazon book store and I am so pleasantly surprised, I really enjoyed the book and I can't wait to get the rest in the series! I can find myself in Georgie, a lot of her experiences are mine, especially the writhing around a dancefloor (spoiler alert) - we've all done that! (more than once). The author has captured the personality of a struggling but perfectly functional woman perfectly and I for one have been gripped and eagerly await the next chapter - well done!
