5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Read!, 12 Jun 2014
Erin was recommended to me by Amazon last year, and since then I have been eagerly waiting for each of her releases. The Shopping Swap is definitely my favourite so far.

Me and Mr Carrington: A Short Story by Alexandra Brown
Alexandra has done it again, and we go back to Carrington's for another episode in the lives of Georgie and Tom. I really like these stories, even though I've read them out of order, but this story (due to it's length) just didn't get going enough for me. I love the couple and the store reminds me of the old-fashioned style store (Selfridges, etc) so am looking forward to the next full-length story!
