Georgie Hart has it all-almost.
She’s the new supervisor in Women’s Accessories at Carrington’s and is in love with the dashing Tom, who she teasingly calls Mr. Carrington. The only problem is she isn’t too sure if they’re actually an item.
Sure, they’ve been hot and flirty but there has been no conversation about where they stand. Georgie was wooed from the first moment she saw him but has begun to have doubts about his sincerity.
Those doubts are thrown into a sharper focus when Georgie begins to wonder if it was her she came to see in Italy or if she was merely a convenience. Those doubts are thrown into a tail spin when she overhears two customers talking about Tom’s upcoming nuptials to someone who isn’t Georgie!
However, this is a Carrington’s novella and nothing is as it seems. By the end of the book, you’ll be cheering at the delicious twist that changes everything…
I absolutely loved this novella. When Alexandra Brown announced its publication date, I was thrilled. I kept wishing for October to move faster so the novella would be published. Thankfully, it lived up to all of my expectations and then some.
See, I’ve read her gorgeous debut novel, Cupcakes at Carrington’s, three times already and it only came out in January of this year. It’s a book that manages to be romantic, laugh out loud hilarious and absolutely brilliant all at once. It’s hard to believe that Brown is a first time author, so great is her skill on the printed page.
What I love most about Cupcakes at Carrington’s and now Me and Mr. Carrington is Georgie. She’s the every woman and she manages to be lovable and endearing at the same time. Georgie is what you’d get it you combine Becky Bloomwood and Bridget Jones; but Georgie’s character all comes down to Alexandra’s brilliance.
Even more than that, she writes fantastic secondary characters (Eddie!) and seeing them again in Me and Mister Carrington is like coming home. It’s not only a book you’ll love, but the characters within the pages will find their way into your heart.
It takes a very talented author to do this and Alexandra Brown succeeds on every level. I can’t wait to see what Georgie will get up to in Christmas at Carrington’s.
Even better, readers are given an early Christmas present as Me and Mr. Carrington has an excerpt from Christmas at Carrington’s to wet your appetite for the November release! I’ll have to read Me and Mr. Carrington a few more times while I wait.
Do yourself a favour and get yourself a copy of Cupcakes at Carrington’s and Me and Mr. Carrington. Carrington’s is one store you won’t ever want to leave.
