Tess Simpson needs a break! No one appreciates her at home. No one appreciates her at work. And now her dog has died. She’s had enough!

River Romero needs a break! Yes, she’s had success as a Hollywood scriptwriter in the past, but this is a tough career in a tough town and her next script has got to fly.

Both women want their lives to change, but they don’t know how.

Sometimes, the first step is to pack your bag and get away from the everyday, so you can start to have an adventure. 

The Personal Shopper By Carmen Reid new cover

We’ve given Annie Valentine, my favourite Personal Shopper, a brand new look for 2022. I’ve teamed up with Boldwood to revise the original book and reissue it for a new generation of readers. Annie is the same warm-hearted fixer with her finger on the fashion pulse. I look forward to hearing what new readers will make of her and her adventures.

As a personal shopper in a swanky London fashion store, 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.

I know, it’s been literally years and years… but I’ve written a brand new novel – novel number 19 – and I absolutely love it, and the lovely people at Boldwood have agreed to publish it.

“Oh brilliant. I cried, I laughed, I smiled.” 5*
