Review: Shop Girl at Sea
Amelia Wakefield loves working at Pennington's, Bath's finest department store. An escape from her traumatic past, it saved her life. So when Miss Pennington sets her a task to set sail on the Titanic and study the department stores of New York, she couldn't be more excited – or determined!
Frustrated with his life at home, Samuel Murphy longs for a few weeks of freedom and adventure. Meeting Amelia on board the Titanic, Samuel can't help wonder what painful history has made the beauty so reserved. But he already has too many responsibilities for love.
Ruby Taylor has always kept her Pennington co-workers at a distance. Making sure her little brother is safe has always been her priority. But when that means accepting Victoria Lark's offer of sanctuary, more than one of Ruby's secrets is under threat of being revealed...
A riveting and uplifting saga, perfect for fans of Elaine Everest and Fiona Ford.
Yes, I love these books. I dream of seeing them on Masterpiece. So did I love this book? Of course. But really - I LOVED this book because if I love anything more than Shop Girl books, it's books about Titanic. AND SHE GAVE ME BOTH THINGS IN ONE BOOK. So my happy fangirl mind exploded. I want Ms. Brimble to be my best friend forever. If that's wrong, then keep it to yourself. I don't come to your house and ruin your fantasies.
So read this book. Please. Because I need to see this on Masterpiece one day and that won't happen if you don't read...so go and read it already! Seriously - why are you still reading this review? YOU NEED TO READ THIS BOOK. For me. And for all the other "me's" out there.
