Originally reviewed for Bookaholic ConfessionstAfter loving every minute of Blue and Green Should Never Be Seen (Or So Mother Says) I was massively excited about reading its prequel, The Retail Therapist.GiGi ranks amongst some of my all-time favourite fictional characters and I couldn’t wait to become re-acquainted with her and her shopping addiction, only this time we are going back in time see how it all started off for GiGi before she became the successful fashion consultant that she is to [...]
3.5 stars. This was a good story which dealt with a number of current issues and focused on GiGi who was trying to build her business as a personal shopper/style consultant. The story was well-written and easy to read but i felt it was rushed as it covered about 8 months in 136 pages. There were quite a few characters mentioned but none of them made much of an impact because they were only in the story briefly. There were a few occasions where i had to think about what was happening in the story [...]
Gigi is a personal shopper with an amazing talent. She seems to get people and know what they need before they do, her business is slow but gradually she gets more commissions and takes on her best friend. together they are unstoppable. A lovely light read, perfect for holidays
This novella is reminiscent of the brilliant works of the author Steena Holmes. This is a huge compliment, as I have read all of Steena’s books and novella’s and it is such a pleasure to get to know characters on a deeper level. I can say that without a doubt, Colette Kebell has the same gift. Her novella, “The Retail Therapist”, which is the prequel to “Blue and Green Should Never Be Seen (Or so Mother Says)”, Colette Kebell, takes us to the birthing of GiGi’s Personal Shopping bu [...]
Gigi has had her fair share of mundane jobs and finally settles on being a personal shopper - and not the kind you find in department stores either. This is a real insight into her world funny, giggle-out-loud moments along with a few lows which all add up to one fabulous read!Only one complaint - there's not enough of it. I would point out, though, that the book is a lot longer that the page count given by . I cannot wait to read Blue and Green Should Never be Seen! (Or So Mother Says) and I k [...]
This was a really cute story and I'm really glad I won this book as I would have missed out on an wonderful story. Follow GiGi as she learns how to be a fashion consultant or actually falls into it. As she really wasn't in love with her rat race job this becomes the perfect oppourtunity for her to start her own business. Meet her best friend Ritchie as he joins her in her business adventure.
I really enjoyed this book, although I was tempted halfway through to throw the book down. But only because it had made me want to go out shopping! However, I resisted the temptation and continued the book :). Fabulous story and I really enjoyed Colette's writing style too. Looking forward to reading 'Blue and Green Should Never be Seen' next!
I picked up Colette's book recently and I really enjoyed the main character named Gigi. She's addicted to shopping herself and so uses her talents to make others look awesome. If you like Sophie Kinsella's Shopaholic series then you'll definitely enjoy The Retail Therapist!
The Retail Therapist by Colette KebellThis story was a free download onto my Kindle. It tells the story of Gigi, a legal secretary who loves fashion & buying clothes. She turns her love of clothes into a business by becoming a Personal Shopper, along with her best friend.This is a very quick read, the only negative thing is that for a very short story, it spreads over quite a few months. I feel that there are chunks missing which could have been explored in so much more detail with a longer [...]
