(Annie Valentine Book 3)
The witty and topical new novel from the bestselling author of The Personal Shopper and Late Night Shopping
Her passion is fashion… but she’s on a budget!
Personal shopper Annie Valentine is about to hit the big time: presenting a glamorous TV makeover series!
But too late, Annie discovers this is TV on a shoestring. They’re paying her buttons and her budget is zip. Can she make do with Primark when all she wants is Prada?
While Annie performs miracles with the minimum, boyfriend Ed is left at home with one son (deeply green), one daughter (deeply teen) and one sexy, Russian blonde (don’t ask).
He’s not happy. He wants more together-time. He wants a dog. He may even want… a baby! But could non-stop, fame-seeking Annie ever handle that?
