    I was really excited to read this book, because I m somewhat of a shopaholic, and I sell clothing on eBay, just like the main character However, I was somewhat disappointed in this book return returnThe way the main character, Annie, speaks was just downright annoying All the babes and darlin s that kept popping up drove me crazy I wanted to slap her And I just could not believe how quickly she capitulated in her job, or furthered her relationships seemed unrealistic Annie was flawed, and not in a particularly interesting way return returnUnderneath the annoying characterization, the premise of the story wasn t bad I didn t see the twist coming at all, and I did like the main love interest the one she ends up with at the end The other characters in this book were much better written Annie s children in particular return returnBut, I never really felt compelled to keep reading I didn t look forward to reading this Picking up thi...

    Meet Annie Valentine stylish, savvy, multi tasker extraordinaire As a personal shopper in a swanky London fashion store, Annie can re style and re invent her clients from head to toe In fact, this super skilled dresser can be relied on to solve everyone s problems except her own Although she s a busy single mum to stroppy teen Lana and painfully shy Owen, there s a gap in Annie s wardrobe sorry, life for a new man But finding the perfect partner is turning out to be so much trickier than finding the perfect pair of shoes Can she source a genuine classic A life long investment Will she end up with a mistake from the sale rail, who ll have to be returned Or maybe, just maybe, there ll be someone new in this season who could be the one For a while now I ve been collecting Carmen Reid s novels It started when I received a copy of How Not To Shop, the third Annie Valentine book I then picked up the first two books because I hate starting a book mid series, before I then received the fourth book in the series Celebrity Shopper It wasn t until I got the fifth book New York Valentine that I decided it was either now or never I was either going to read all five Annie Valentine novels, or it was never going to happen I took the former route and got stuck into book one The Personal Shopper, hoping I would enjoy it, especially since I have f...

    Dont want to hide this, but there are some light spoilers in the review What I usually expect from a chick lit is to have a quite unlikely story that makes me mostly laugh, and in which is clear from the beginning who will be the prince charming in the end This time I haven t had this impression here Annie, the personal shopper and main character is somehow someone who the writer would like to be a real person Someone who has a family to take care of, and in the meanwhile would like to meet the men of her dreams The result is that the should be real character Annie is set in a world soap opera like, in which she meets the rich dentist, in which her customers are all separate wives whose aim is to spend all their ex husbands money and in which a school teacher turns out to be the landlord of a three storey building in Highgate Not to mention the fact that she keeps on worry about family budget while she manage to send the children...

    Today s book review is a nice light hearted romp into the magical world of shopping in high fashion London The Personal Shopper is the tale of Annie Valentine, a single mum of two who works at a posh London department store as a duh personal shopper She helps the extremely wealthy and the occasional friend colleague invent and reinvent themselves through clothes and accessories She s a sassy, saucy, sweetheart of a character, which of course means she runs afoul of a horrid boss, well meaning but not quite right men, and the occasional whiny customer often than she should She is struggling to give her two children everything without the means to do so consistently Which of course brings on drama of both the tearful and laughter full kind of its own She s also struggling to figure out what she wants from and for her own life She loves helping people express themselves through clothes, using wardrobe as weapon to help women and the occasional man realize who they are, and who they want to be and she uses the tricks of her trade on herself as ...

    I downloaded this book for free I am glad I didn t pay for it I am a bit of shopaholic and I tend to enjoy books about shopping and fashion, but this book was really hard to finish It took me 4 attempts to finally finish.Possible spoilers warning Annie is so unlikeable what a self centered, stuck up person I feel for those poor children being dragged around from one place to another Her insistence and reasons for keeping her children in a private school even though she can t afford it is mind boggling I was in private school from kindergarten till college, and I can tell you from personal experience that it doesn t guarantee your future, and no, it doesn t make one better than others who go to public school That s just one example of the ridiculousness that Annie believes in Not to mention, dating rich guy because she wants to be taken care of, and thinking one is most attractive...

    I ve never read anything by Carmen Reid before, so I decided to check this out.Annie Valentine has the perfect jobshe s a personal shopper and spends all day choosing clothes for people She has two children, Owen and Lana Lana is the typical rebelling teen, but Owen is interesting She used to be married, but we don t find out what happened to her husband until the end I was genuinely shocked, it was something I never saw coming Never Annie is very lonely and desperate to find a new man And so she begins her search All the characters are lovely, realistic and entertaining From Annie s sister to her awful great aunt and her gay best friend Connor, all the characters are crafted perfectly O.K, so there a few chick lit stereo types Connor , but I hardly noticed I was too busy wondering what could possibly happen next The book is written in third person, but is still mainly from Annie s perspective The plot never slows, using jumps in time from chapte...

    Unfortunately, I read the sequel to this book before the original, so I had a bit of strange pre knowledge going in Annie Valentine is even annoying in this book, and this is the one that intros her She is good at her job, and the personal shopping angle is quite interesting as is the dynamic with her children This book explains how Annie and Ed get together Overall, the story was good, as I definitely kept reading, but the one thing I really didn t like was the way the author kept Roddy s departure so ambiguous I know I m also...

    This book was just so funny Right at the start you re lead to believe that Annie Valentine s husband has left her with their rebellious teenage daughter and very shy son Annie s best friend is gay and he really brings a lot of humour to the book I think he was my favourite character She works as a personal shopper in a huge shop called The Store she s very good at her job and has a few other things that she does on the side to support her family...

    Annie Valentine has got to be one of the most vapid wenches ever conceived Nothing remotely likeable about her or her kids and her parenting skills are shameful, fiction or not Boring and predictable, I only finish...
