Can Jessie work with a woman with the looks of a pixie and the personality of a dragon to complete the most important task of her career?
Shop-fitter Jessie is sent to London’s Oxford Street to work overnight on a flagship store’s front window. It’s the first time she’s completed such an important task by herself, but the plans and organization are solid—it’s just a case of getting it turned around before the store reopens the following morning.
What she’s not betting on, however, is the woman in charge of the project—Edith. She has the looks of a pixie but the personality of a dragon, and it soon becomes clear to Jessie that the job isn’t going to be smooth sailing, not with Edith being awkward and putting Jessie down at every turn. As the hours drag on, Jessie somehow manages to peer beneath Edith’s frosty exterior, and much to her surprise, she kind of likes what she finds. But will she abandon her principles—and potentially risk her job—for a one-off thing?

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
I can't word the official blurb any better (thats not to say I think my blurbs ARE better, I just can't word it any differently!) than the official one, so not doing one here.
SHORT!!! Too short to be a book, I'm afraid, more an extended chapter or two.
Only Jessie has her say, and I didn't much like Jessie. I understand Edith, somewhat, even though she didn't have her say, but I didn't like her much either. They do seem to suit each other though.
I WOULD like to read a longer more in depth book by this author. Just to see what she does with more pages.
So, I'm sorry, but a short review for a short book. 47 pages. Previously published in an anthology. And this is becoming a trend I don't much care for. Publish a perfectly good short story in the anthology, and then, again, on its own. In the anthology, I probably would have loved it. But here?? It was kinda meh. BUT I did finish it so....
