Book Description

17 Jan 2013 Carrington's
Georgie Hart loves her job--running the luxury handbag concession at Carrington's Department store in the pretty seaside town of Mulberry Bay, and treating herself (once too often!) to a red velvet cupcake with buttercream icing in Carrington's café.

But Georgie is thrown into disarray when Carrington's is plunged into a recession-busting makeover, cueing the arrival of femme fatale Maxine, who wields the axe in her immaculately-manicured hands.

It spells a recipe for disaster for Georgie and soon she is fighting not only for her job, but also for the attentions of her gorgeous boss, James. And when hot newcomer Tom arrives, who may or may not be the best thing since sliced bread, Georgie must decide where her loyalties really lie...

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 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!
