Me and Mr Carrington by Alexandra Brown

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.

Alexandra Brown has done it again! Through this fabulous short story I was able to reconnect with Georgie, Eddie and the gorgeous guy that is Tom.
I ended he story dreaming about Dior bags, Tom's tan lines and cupcakes........

I love how Alexandra is able to capture my imagination, to the point where I can imagine the store displays, picture the designs and feel the fabrics.

With this being a short story I don't want to give any of it away but I will tell you, there was a character I wanted to slap and two new faces I hope we meet again, they were extremely lovely.

I'm now even more excited about Christmas at Carrington's and I didn't think that was possible.
So until publication day, I'm off to google handbags and stare at pictures of Henry Cavill!

5/5
