Ice Creams at Carrington's - by Alexandra Brown

Original Cover
My own copy
The blurb:

The third book in the delightful series set in Carrington’s Department Store.

Georgie Hart and Carrington’s Department Store have got the world at their feet. Since a reality TV series put them both on the map, life has been amazing! Carrington’s profits are in the pink, Georgie has carved herself a place in the nation’s heart and her romance with Tom, the store’s boss, has finally blossomed.

Now summertime has come to Mulberry-on -Sea and Georgie is in great demand. The town is holding a big summer festival and she and her mates from Carrington’s are planning on making sure that Mulberry puts on the show of its life!

But Georgie is about to get the offer of a lifetime – one that is just too good to turn down and something that will test her loyalties to their limits… Will Georgie be able to pull off it off once again, or has her luck finally run out?

My Opinion:

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 characters.

After 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. Carrington.

Georgie 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 funny.

I 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 Tom.

When 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 smoothly.
I really loved every second of this story, with it’s twists and turns and the perfect amount of drama.

We learn more 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 Georgie.

This 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!!!

Georgie: Rachel McAdams

Eddie: Chris Colfer
