Mini Review: 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.

Review: I continued my Alexandra Brown Marathon with this wonderful novella designed to slot in between Cupcakes at Carrington's and Christmas at Carrington's. This would make the perfect lunch time read, but you definitely have to have read the first book in order to understand fully what is going on in this one. I thought this was a wonderful idea, having this novella to bridge the gap between the two novels and it fitted in perfectly to my author marathon!

This is a wonderful little story that gives us a bit more insight into Tom and his background, we didn't get to find out much about his actual family background in the first novel and so to have a little bit more insight into the world of Mr Carrington is quite a privilege! It it nice to revisit the other characters and see whats going on with them too. Georgie seems her usual self, jumping to conclusions and always assuming the worst, but this is what we love about her right?

This is an extremely quick read but perfect to wet your appetite ready for the release of Christmas at Carrington's. It gives you an extra story to keep you going in between times and gives you a little more insight into the two main characters we enjoyed in Cupcakes at Carrington's. A must read for all Alexandra Brown fans!
