Book Review: The Personal Shopper by Carmen Reid @thiscarmenreid @rararesources

Thank you to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for giving me the chance to review The Personal Shopper by Carmen Reid


Meet Annie Valentine: stylish, savvy, multi-tasker extraordinaire.
As a personal shopper in a swanky London fashion store, Annie 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 . . .


This is the first book in the Annie Valentine series and what a cracking read it was. A wonderful escapism book that is full of intriguing ups and downs. I absolutely loved Annie and how versatile she is no matter what.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and can’t wait to read the other books in the series.
