Let’s finish off the day with a review for the wonderful – The Personal Shopper by Carmen Reid

My Review

It’s always a delight to pick up a book by Carmen Reid and this one was no exception. We meet Annie personal shopper to the rich as she works dressing her wonderful selection of clients in her day job, whilst trying to make enough money with her sidelines to keep the bills paid and the kids in their private schools.

We quickly learn that Annie is no longer with her husband but it isn’t until you keep reading that more information is offered. After 3 years of being on her own Annie decides that she needs to up her dating game and preferably marry someone with a healthy bank balance to help her keep on top of her mountain of bills.

The Personal Shopper is a story that will make you chuckle throughout with a few curve balls to keep you entertained and keen to keep reading.

I am a total bookworm who loves nothing more than to lose herself in a book. My pile of books to read is teetering higher and higher as there are not enough hours in the day compared to how many old and new amazing books there are out there to read. I love to read in my spare time and books are a massive part of our household. I feel really lucky that Daisy also loves losing herself in the amazing worlds the authors are creating for us and neither of us ever go very far without having a book to hand as you never know when an opportunity to read may present itself.
