My sister bought me this book for Christmas and I started reading it on New Year's eve.

I loved this book. Kate Harrison hooks you into the story from the first page and the three main characters are people you grow to care about very much, and I loved the fact that I could relate to Emily's personality. I think all the readers will find that they too can relate to one of the three heroines.

The story centres around Emily, a mother who longs to bring a bit of excitement into her dull life. Sandie, a single woman who works in retail and is very organised and yet due to something that happens beyond her control has to change her life around and Grazia, an elegant widow who on the surface seems to have a life free from worries but looks can be deceptive.

These three are the secret shopping angels, who together are given assignments by the mysterious Charlie, some of which are heavent sent, some are just hell.

I found I couldn't put this book down, I was longing to find out exactly what happened to each of the ladies as the story unfolded and I found this book to be extremely touching and amusing although not laugh out loud funny and really well written.

I bought a copy of the book for my sister and we ended up reading the book at the same time, enjoying talking together about all the different things that happened in the book.

This is the first book in the secret shoppers series and having read the third one a while ago, I was really looking forward to this.

The books follows three women - Grazia, Sandier and Emily. They are three different women with vastly different lives. They all come together as Charlie's secret shopping angels and undertake secret missions...

There's not a lot to dislike in this book. The characters are written so well and it's about shopping. I found it so easy to read and had it finished in a couple of days. I couldn't wait to find out what happened and found the book very difficult to put down.

A great read and I'm really looking forward to reading the second one!

i REALLY loved this book, and stayed up far too late reading it. right from the set up to the very last page it's a pacy and satisfying and sometimes romantic read. i found all three female protagonists very likeable, yet realistic with their faults and foibles, and was gunning for them all - each of them was my favourite at some point in the story and each of them undergoes a huge change in the course of the novel.
the change in narrative voice really kept me engrossed and wanting to know what was happening with the other characters.

of course, it's a very identifiable subject, shopping, and any woman could relate to the experiences of the three secret shoppers. kate harrison makes being a secret shopper sound fun - i wonder if there'll be big increase in applications over the next few months?

This books is surprisingly good chicklit the characters are like able and during the book they get to know themselves and each other. The end is rather rushed and I was unsurprised to notice that there were a number of sequels as it doesn't fully resolve the story. The three characters include an artist's muse and widow fallen on hard financial times. She runs the secret shopper team. An ex-shop manager dismissed for a theft she didn't commit. and a single mum abandoned by her partner of 12 years and husband of 2 with a small baby. Total fantasy secret shopping is all controlled via the internet where you sign up for assignments and although some shops do use equipment you are expected to provide your own. I did a bit as a student and the most I ever made was £300 in a month living in a city. However some people do claim to make a wage from it http://www.theguardian.com/money/2014/mar/11/secrets-mystery-shopper and that is as good a premise for a book as any.

For the first 200-odd pages I really struggled. I didn't find the characters interesting or likeable, especially grazia. Towards the end though the story really picked up and the characters got a lot more interesting. I found I didn't want to put it down towards the end when plot started tying itself off nicely, although I did find the romance between Emily and Will a little far-fetched and rushed. My only other qualm was that there didn't seem to be a massive amount of secret shopping going on (I expected it to feature a lot more prominently considering the title of the book)
Overall it's a light, enjoyable feel-good read that doesn't require any thought or effort. Perfect for passing the time when travelling or perhaps a holiday read.

I have read A LOT of chicklits in my time. Some good and some bad and unfortunately this one fell in the bad category.
When I read the synopsis of the book I thought it sounded quite interesting and that there was a good basis for a story there, however I was disappointed and it didn't live up to my expectations. The plot was very predictable and could be rather slow in places. There were three main characters and I didn't particularly like any of them. Overall I gave this book two stars...to be generous.
