Christmas at Carringtons Book Review No. 2

Carrington’s Department store is thrown into a spin when the staff learn that a hot new reality TV show is to be filmed in-store, featuring the formidable retail guru, Kelly Cooper. Georgie Hart, in charge of Luxury Handbags, is reluctant, but quickly realises that the show could give Carrington’s a new lease of life. With Christmas around the corner, she’s also hoping that the season will deliver her the perfect Christmas present, in the form of Tom, the store’s dishy boss.

When the film crew arrive, things start to go wrong. One of Tom’s old flames, Zara, is working on the show and then, to top things off, Tom and Zara are sent off to Paris and New York for a spot of extra filming. When Georgie settles down in front of the box to watch the first show, worse it to come – Georgie is shown in a far from flattering light and she is horrified to learn what Tom has been up to.

Georgie fears this is turning out to be the worst Christmas ever, but Santa might have a got a little surprise in store for her stocking this year – but she’ll just have to wait until Christmas to find out!

This was one of my Christmas books, I LOVE Christmas themed books, I'll read them all year round.
I only received a couple of books this year but I did receive some vouchers which of course are just as good, and so I hoppidy skipped to the bookstore.
This is the second book based at the apartment store Carringtons, remember I read 
Cupcakes at Carringtons last year? Although I was slightly disappointed at the lack of actual cupcakes in the first book, I was very pleased at the amount of Christmas in this one. I was eager to see what went on in Carringtons at Christmas time.
You definitely don't have to have read the first one, as each of these can be read as a stand alone book.
 I enjoyed this one more than the first, I was interested to see how Georgie's life was now that she had her perfect man! 
Of course, as you would expect love does not run smoothly, and as usual there are moments when I would have loved to bang the heads of the supposedly in love together, but this was definitely a good choice to spend my precious vouchers on, it filled many a cosy hour sat by my wood burner.
