Book Review – Christmas At Carringtons by Alexandra Brown

Library Book

Genre: Christmas/Romance

Number of Pages: 384


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!


I saw this on the Libby App and thought that it was a great looking Christmas read. There was a bit of a wait on it so I had high hopes! I did enjoy it and have since learned that it is part of a series, so I will be keeping that in mind. 

The writing was light and entertaining and I enjoyed being on the journey with the main character. The misunderstandings throughout were interesting and I really felt for her. There were also a couple of emotional moments which I think added to the story. 

It was written from the point of view of the main character which drew me in to the story and made me feel part of the journey. There was a good amount of description that was cleverly weaved in so you could easily picture what was going on. 

There was a fast pace to the story, with things constantly going on. The chapters were a mix of lengths which helped with the pacing and kept my interest. I enjoyed the titles on each of the chapters and I felt that they also helped to move the story on. 

The characters were great. The friendship shone through when the main character was having a time of it, and they added entertainment to the story.  

Lastly the settings. I loved the setting of an old fashioned shopping department. There is something cosy about reading about them especially as they are becoming a rare thing on our high streets. 

Overall an enjoyable Christmas story. 

⭐Rated 4/5⭐
