A Chick Lit Lover’s Delight. Fashion may be the central theme; along with a nagging mother, but with friendships, intrigue, a villain, romance, food and laughter too.
GiGi is a woman with a mission: to help people improve the way they look, increase their self-esteem, and eventually, make them happier people. Being a personal shopper is a dark art, with few tangible rewards. Spread by word of mouth, her clients would never admit they needed her assistance. Let us be honest, who would admit to being in need of a style consultant?
The first step is to admit you need help with your wardrobe. When you have recognised that, you are on the path to recovery, and GiGi’s services will help you, despite her mother nagging that she is not doing a “real” job.
So, is it just a matter of going around and helping people buy clothes and shoes?
Not quite so. Money is tight; GiGi has to work with wealthy and eccentric people, who often do not have any idea about what they want. She and her business partner Ritchie are in a constant struggle to keep the business afloat, but as they say in Dragon’s Den, she is very investable. But, with success comes the difficulties, the Battersea Fashion Center is going to open soon, and they claim they will be fierce competitors.
With the constant struggle to keep her business afloat; a powerful enemy lining up ready to make a meal out of her, knowing well that GiGi’s approach, eventually, will make her successful. The business expands, and they take onboard new partners, making them one of the most influential fashion consultancy firms in London. But, with a very demanding job, hours spent working, will she be able to balance her career and her private life?
A Note From the Publisher
“GiGi is an absolute Spit-Fire! She is truly awesome! This is a cross between, “Devil wears Prada” and “Bridget Jones’ Diary”. Her excitement is SO contagious. It actually jumps off of the page, making you read on and on and on, as it is written with such excitement and intrigue”.
Annie – Chick Lit Plus
“Colette Kebell has created an exciting, funny, adventure of a story – you might be rooting for GiGi and her friends with all your might but you’re never quite sure if she’s going to succeed and that keeps you turning the pages right until the end”.
Holly – Bookaholic Confessions
“Colette Kebell has created a superstar in GiGi, our quirky, fashion-loving heroine. GiGi is really a brilliant and quite unique character. Colette Kebell writes with confidence and a cheeky flair which will keep you smiling from first page to last.”
