New York Valentine by Carmen Reid
Release date: 22 February 2011
Newly-wed Annie Valentine is busy filming her third TV series of How Not To shop when she receives a distress call from New York. Elena and Svetlana's fashion company, Perfect Dress, is about to go belly-up and no one can help them more than Annie.
Annie is dazzled by New York but the hard work that her friends are doing in the fabric houses in Brooklyn is far from glamourous - it's downright dangerous. But Elena needs a fabric bargain and Annie is going to find it for her. Meanwhile, back in the UK, Annie's husband Ed has been suspended from his teaching job after vicious rumours about him and a sixth form girl are circulated on the school's email system are investigated.
Can Annie save her friend's business and her husband's reputation and manage to enjoy herself?
This is the fourth book in the Annie Valentine series. I have only read the first book so far - The Personal Shopper - but I loved it so much that I really look forward to reading the rest of the series, this one included. There were so many qualities to the first book that reminded me of the Shopaholic books and I think that the Annie Valentine character can definitely follow in Becky Bloomwood's footsteps!
