Summary

A deliciously indulgent listen from the best-selling author of The Secret of Orchard Cottage

Carrington’s Department Store - where life is sweeter....

Georgie Hart loves her job - running the luxury handbag concession at Carrington's Department Store in the pretty seaside town of Mulberry Bay and treating herself (once too often!) to a red velvet cupcake with buttercream icing in Carrington's café.

But Georgie is thrown into disarray when Carrington's is plunged into a recession-busting makeover, cueing the arrival of femme fatale Maxine, who wields the ax in her immaculately manicured hands.

It spells a recipe for disaster for Georgie, and soon she is fighting not only for her job but also for the attention of her gorgeous boss, James. 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....

Not for me

I loved "Secret of the orchard cottage" so wanted to try more by the author but this book is really not for me. Didn't like characters or the story.
