    It's the first time I've read Alexandra Brown's novels and this one totally disappointed me I felt it was boringboringboring Couldn't catch up with the plot and I was on the verge of literally throwing the book away I NEVER EVER do that but after so many days I managed to finish reading it This however doesn't mean I will not try reading any other book from the same author Far from it I would recommend it though because not all people agree on the same thing So give it a try people and I hope YOU REALLY enjoy it than I did

    georgie hart works at carrington's as a personal stylist and her boyfriend is the boss life could not get any better then she is coerced into helping with a summer regatta at mulberry on sea what could go wrong and could she finally get the town back on the map and help carrington's at the same time? add into this mix her possible future mother in law who seems to be taken against her and friends who r too willing to put their shoulders to the wheel when she is called away oh and her father and new partner who have decided to take on europe in a clapped out camper van a funny novel that u romp thru but far too much narrative for my comfort and not enough dialogue the whole book seemed to revolve around georgie and what was going on in her mind would have added to the enjoyment if attention was paid to the other characters they just seemed meaningless shadows except possible the mum in law to be bev

    Also reviewed on my blog BOOK WAS AMAZING Ahem It's 315am and I've just finished it after starting it just a few hours ago I read Cupcake's at Carrington's last year but didn't get around to reading Christmas at Carrington's until yesterday May 23rd The setting of Carrington's and Mulberry on Sea is just wonderful and I would just love to holiday there As long as I could meet Georgie I would absolutely love to be friends with her Georgie is happily in love with Tom Mr Carrington and thanks to being the star of a reality TV show is somewhat of a celebrity The real celebrity however appears to be the fantastic Eddie who is now pretty much an A lister with his own TV shows and Simon Cowell on speed dial He is also managed by Claire PowellOne of the first things that stood out to me was the writing With this being Alex's third book as with most authors I felt like she is just so much comfortable and confident with her writing and her characters that it was just a joy to read The previous two books are both well written and I'm really crap at trying to explain what I mean here But you can just tell when an author really loves what they are writing about and loves the characters and stories as much as the reader The world created just feels incredibly realistic and every character was extremely vivid in my mind When an author puts so much effort and love into a story it really makes it that much enjoyable for the reader This time the story centres around a summer regatta and after two books it makes sense to move the action away from Carrington's but at the same time still have it playing a big role in the book And of course the setting of Mulberry on Sea just works incredibly well for this sort of story Or so I thought Unfortunately for Georgie just a few things go wrong and this makes for some pretty shocking and hilarious story lines Georgie is the face of Carrington's during the regatta and is warned by Tom's formidable mother not to make a mess of it She also faces obstacles and criticisms from Meredith who is the PA of Mulberry's MP Alexandra writes such brilliant bitchy characters that you just want to see given a good slapNot only does the story take place away from Carrington's parts of it take place away from Mulberry And that's all I'm saying on that It was BRILLIANT and I pretty much went through every emotion with Georgie She is just a fantastic character I was happy sad laughing my head off and then halfway through the book practically screaming at my Kindle which at 2am in the morning isn't good Alexandra has written one hell of a story here just when you think Georgie can't have any bad luck something else happens It's written in a way though that you feel sympathy for Georgie but it's hilarious at the same time I then had the thought of going to bed and finishing the book in the morning well that went out the window and there was no uestion of me sleeping until I reached the end I absolutely love this book the excitement around it on Twitter from other bloggers is huge and I'm sure and hope it'll be a roaring success for Alex I can't recommend it enough I'm just wondering whether this is the end of the Carrington's story? I for one hope not as Georgie is a character I could never tire reading about and I'm sure her legion of fans wouldn't either I would love to read from Georgie in the future even if it's a short story Please do not hesitate to buy and LOVE this book

    Ice Cream at Carrington’s is the third and last book in the Carrington series I loved each and every single one of the books and I was so excited to get back to these charactersAfter getting “famous” on national TV Georgie’s life has changed a bit her job is different although she still works at Carrington’s of course and the most important thing She is still dating Mr CarringtonGeorgie gets to organize a big event in Mulberry and she is doing her best with all the obstacles or should I say weird people in the way She is a strong and passionate woman and she is funnyI love reading about Tom and Georgie they are such an adorable couple and their scenes are always great Georgie is hesitant when it comes to moving in with TomWhen she gets an opportiunity to go to New York she grabs it It would mean that she is away for her birthday Tom hands her an envelope but she never opens it What about his surprise and will the regatta run smoothlyI really loved every second of this story with it’s twists and turns and the perfect amount of dramaWe learn about Tom’s family which is great but also Georgie’s family is included and of course her very best friends Sam and Eddie The three of them are just awesome Both of her friends have their one real part in the story without taking something away from GeorgieThis book is FABULOUS My fave in this series don't ask me why though cause they are all awesome Alexandra’s writing is passionate funny warm sweet and really refreshing I couldn’t put this book down I loved following Georgie’s story and I really adored the last few scenes It felt like watching a movie which is a really good thing

    Sorry Alexandra this book was one too many too many things went wrong too much was predictable I realise ends needed to be tied up from the first two books but I was disappointed with the constant drama This is is purely my view and I don't want to put others off

    Having read the other books in this series I was looking forward to reading this one However I have to say I was very disappointed I actually went off the main character Georgie and although the book is passable to read ok for a light read on the train etc I was just glad to get to the end of it and I shan't be reading any of this series I think the author struggled with this one I found it rushed and rather silly I know it's fiction but I did find that even this stretched my imagination The ending was predictable but uite honestly I didn't really care in the end This series has had its dayI also found the way it was written having an effect on me very garbled to me and I have to say the amount of times Georgie says Oh my God really becomes tiresome and also the use of the F word is uite unnecessary Working in libraries I think there will be many readers of Chick lit who won't appreciate this and it actually doesn't serve any additional purpose to the plot There is a time and place for the use of this word in literature but this is not it and is another reason why I went off Georgie who just becomes vacuous and materialistic as time goes on She becomes very tiresome If the idea is for the reader to like the main character it isn't working Sadly I have to say that in the last few years looking at everything I have recently read this is the worst book so farHugely disappointing I actually think I could write a better one

    This is the third book in the series Things are hopping at Carrington’s in the aftermath of the reality series Georgie has some stress from meeting her boyfriend’s wealthy parents and she takes on a role in organizing a big fete in town She is also offered a uniue opportunity to be the face and inspiration behind a new line of bags which takes her to New York and has her meeting up with her dear friend Eddie Unfortunately a fun time on her birthday leads her to forget to open the envelope that her boyfriend Tom gave her which ruins a wonderful surprise from him and puts Georgie in a world of trouble She has to work to sort out her priorities and help her best friend Sam who is having her own challenges with motherhood This was a decent conclusion to the series and a great improvement over the second book
