Product Description

Product Description

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous! 10 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I was a huge fan of Alexandra's first book and this short story has reminded me why. It's charming, witty, incredibly easy to read and quite frankly once I pick up a Carrington's book I just can't seem to put it down. The characters are loveable and believable, especially Georgie Hart. These books have the perfect ingredients of lovely friendships entwined with real life issues, a sprinkling of baking and a huge dollop of romance... perfect escapism. Christmas at Carrington's has already been pre-ordered and the day it arrives I will be locked away not to be disturbed! The only negative for me is that they have to come to an end.

I absolutely LOVED Cupcakes At Carrington's and so I was so excited to find out that Alexandra Brown had written a short story - Me and Mr Carrington!

We are back with the characters from Cupcakes At Carrington's...and it was SUCH a joy to be reunited with them! I had missed reading about their lives and so it was exciting to find out what they were all up to! It was so enjoyable to be back with Georgie, every time I read about her she feels as though she is my best friend! And my favourite character of all Eddie is back, I think I actually squealed in delight as he made his entrance.

As this is a short story revealing anything other than the description above would be giving it all away, but what I can say is that Me and Mr Carrington is just as delightful and enjoyable as Cupcakes At Carrington's. Alexandra has such a talent with writing that I can picture every scene clearly, and it felt as though I was there amongst the handbags, I really was transported to the wonderful world of Carrington's!

This short story has made me even more excited for Christmas At Carrington's. If you haven't already then start with Cupcakes At Carrington's, move on to this beautiful short story and you'll soon find yourself in excited anticipation of the next Carrington's read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous catch up! 10 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved Cupcakes at Carrington's and it was lovely to go back to Mulberry-on-sea for a snippet of the latest goings on.

We resume not long after we left off with Georgie back at Carrington's after attending best friend, Sam's wedding in Italy, with gorgeous (and super rich) Tom Carrington on her arm.

Georgie is missing Tom, who stayed in Italy to deal with some family business, and is left wondering where exactly their relationship stands, if there is a relationship at all.
Her friends, the fabulous staff at Carrington's are on hand to help her out, some of them with more than one ear out for gossip.

There is a taster of Christmas at Carrington's after the short story has ended which leave appetites whetted for more!

I really enjoyed the first two books but this just rehashes a lot of the background and has a very thin plot.
