July's been a pretty slow month for reading, there's always so much going on in the summer that it's difficult to keep up! But even during a slow month there are a few books that manage to make their way onto my bookshelf...
Ice Creams at Carrington's - Alexandra Brown
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 found a place in the nation’s heart and her romance with Tom, the store’s boss, has blossomed.
Now summertime has come to Mulberry-on -Sea and town is holding a big summer regatta. Georgie and the Carrington’s team are are going to make sure that the town puts on the show of the year!
But Georgie is about to get the offer of a lifetime – something just too good to turn down, one 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?
The Understudy - David Nicholls
For Josh Harper, being in show-business means everything he ever wanted - money, fame, a beautiful wife,
and a lead role on the London stage. For Stephen C. McQueen, it means a disastrous career playing passers-by and dead people.
Stephen is stuck with an unfortunate name, a hopeless agent, a daughter he barely knows, and a job as understudy to Josh Harper, the 12th Sexiest Man in the World. And when Stephen falls in love with Josh's clever, funny wife Nora, things get even more difficult.
But might there yet be a way for Stephen to get his Big Break?
I was also very excited to receive these two books from Bookbridgr. Can't wait to get stuck in!
