LoveReading View on The Personal Shopper

This woman can not write a bad book – I love her, she has a relaxed, easy style I find endearing and she has her finger on the pulse of reality. An added aside here is the shopping experience! Annie is a single mum with two stroppy teenagers, no man in her life and is unbelievably busy making every penny she can. A plucky girl looking for another Mr Right. I do genuinely encourage you to indulge in her, you won’t be disappointed.

The Personal Shopper Synopsis

As a personal shopper in a swanky London fashion emporium, 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 busy being a 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 lifelong investment? Will she end up with someone 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 . . .

About Carmen Reid

Carmen Reid was our Guest Editor in February 2011 - click here - to see the books that inspired her writing.   Carmen Reid was born and brought up in a chilly and windy corner of Scotland in the depths of the countryside. This may explain her lifelong phobia of cows and abiding interest in cities, department stores, books, the cinema and newspapers.Her parents still live on the organic farm she grew up on and she goes back regularly to eat the alarmingly healthy home-grown meals which probably turned her into a 6" lass. She spent four teenage years at ...
