A fantastic three-book bundle of the hilarious Carrington’s Department Store series: CUPCAKES AT CARRINGTON’S, ME AND MR CARRINGTON (a short story) and CHRISTMAS AT CARRINGTON’S.
In CUPCAKES, Georgie Hart loves her job running the luxury handbag concession at Carrington's Department store in the pretty seaside town of Mulberry, but is thrown into disarray when Carrington's is plunged into a recession-busting makeover. And when hot newcomer Tom arrives, who may or may not be the best thing since sliced bread, Georgie must decide where her loyalties really lie…
Next, ME AND MR CARRINGTON. Georgie Hart can’t believe her luck. After a romantic Italian get-together with a certain someone leaves her on Cloud Nine, Georgie is brought back down to earth with a bump when she returns to work. But when Georgie is left open-mouthed by a revelation from one of her well-heeled customers, she’s left wondering if she’s done her usual trick of adding two and two together to make five?
Every CHRISTMAS, Georgie adores helping customers in the hunt for the perfect gift for the perfect someone. And this year is no exception – now she has the hunky Tom, Mr Carrington himself, to spend the special day with. But when Tom springs a surprise, Georgie’s plans are thrown into chaos: Carrington’s is getting a fresh lease of life in a hot new reality TV show, and as the first show airs, Georgie is shown in a far from flattering light. She fears this will be the worst Christmas ever, but Santa still has a little surprise for Georgie’s stocking this year – she’ll just have to wait until Christmas to find out…
