I'm not really sure that I'd classify this as a chick-lit though there are some of those elements there. This is more about the story of a woman who everyone drops everything for and all good things drop into her lap despite not seeming to really deserve them.
Hallie is the manager of a Gucci store in Chicago. The reader is supposed to feel bad and emphathize with her because her parents died when she was young and she was raised in poverty by her crazy aunt. She is suddenly assigned to work as the manager of a new Gucci boutique in her former hometown, Cincinnati, and resents it.
Her 3 best friends from Chicago come to visit her frequently and she seems to resent them internally, thinking that they have perfect lives when her parents are dead. Her friends come to her aid at literally a moments notice and it's confusing since it never seems like it'd be the same in the other direction.
Actually I had problems with the entire book. The characters were inconsistent in that the reader is told their motivations but their actions read differently. The romance aspect of the book was lackluster and the characters were all flat.
This is a cute, quick read and less about romance as it is about learning things as you go, and realizing not everything is as you thought it would be.
Hallie is a strong woman who thinks she knows what she's going to do with her life, except things take a quick turn when she's sent to her home town to open a store.
The book is well done and shows that you should cherish family, and not paint yourself into a corner. Find that special thing you really want to do.
Carpe Bead'em is a sweet feel good book that I didn't want to end.
Hillarie is a store manager for Gucci in Chicago. She loves her job, Gucci and Bo....... Bo has no clue she has any feelings for him. They run together that is all. Then her regional manager ships her off to Cincinnati to start the boutique in Saks.
As if life couldn't get much worse...... she has to face the past she disliked and a city she never intended to return to. Will the chance encounter with beading turn her life around?
How Distracted Did I Get?
Tonya delivers a great book again! Hillary goes through so much. Reminds me I don't miss the single life. But it's true to how things are in the dating world. Hillary is strong and sensitive the perfect blend for a heroine in a book! I literally laughed and cried! This is a perfect escape book. Just what I needed! No laundry done oh well, the kids can wear the same clothes 2 days in a row right? I give Carpe Bead'em...........
Hallie wasn't sure she wanted to go back to her home town to help open a new boutique. She is good at her job and makes a great impression. She explores the craft of beading and discovers a new career.
I was in the craft store the other day and started looking at the beads wondering if the store offers beading classes. I may have an undiscovered talent. While I was in the store I kept thinking about the first time Hallie went into a bead shop.
I highly recomend this great book. Very enjoyable./
