Book Review: Christmas At Carringtons by Alexandra Brown

Title: Christmas At Carrington's
Author: Alexandra Brown
Publisher: HarperCollins
Publication Date: 7th November 2013


A deliciously indulgent read and the follow up to Cupcakes at Carrington’s. Set in Carrington’s Department Store this is perfect for fans of Jenny Colgan.

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!


Yay it's soo great to catch up with Georgie, Eddie && Mr Tom Carrington again!
What a fantastic read!!! Firstly the cover of this fab book was just ever cute and so festive which I just loved very much!

I am a newly big fan of Alexandra Brown's books and I loved her debut book Cupcake at Carringtons, it was just ever so fabulous, So I was just excited when I knew there was going to be another book in the series tehe!

We soon catch up with Georgie's relationship with the ever so handsome Mr Tom Carrington who is just ever yummy hehe!
When Georgie sees herself on telly on this show by Kelly Cooper...things are simply not going to be right straight away for Georgie, 1. She was shown as a clown in which she was very embarrassed about and 2. Her Mr perfect hadn't told her she was going to be on telly which makes her angry and goes charging into work the next morning to find the famous Kelly Cooper and her daughter Zara.

I think we all know fans of the Carrington's series knew this book was going to blow us away again with plenty of laughter and drama and just being able to catch up with my favourite characters again was just so amazing :)

I was so gutted for Sam(Georgie's best friend) I just hope she does find some great happiness eventually. She is still the fabulous baker though with her yummy cakes which always make me drool when I'm reading.

I just loved the whole book once again, once again I felt like I was right there along Georgie and all the drama's, chaos, laughter, the tears that was happening in the book, either way with these fab books you are just going to fall in love with all the characters and that they are your new best friends!

I do recommend everyone to go grab a copy as it is so wonderful!
I cannot wait for Ice Creams at Carrington's which is out in the summer June 2014. I am soo happy!
Alexandra Brown deserves the fab 5 star rating from me for all the chaos that goes on in the Carrington department store and for making the most wonderful characters ever.
