Mix six teenaged girls and one 60s fashion icon (retired, of course) in an old Victorian-era boarding home. Add guys and dating, a little high-school angst, and throw in a Kate Spade bag or two and youve got The Carter House Girls, Melody Carlsons new chick lit series for young adults! Christmas is coming and Mrs. Carter treats the girls to a weekend trip to General Hardings luxurious Vermont ski lodge. Naturally, she has no idea that Taylor has invited some guys to follow themboys who have a different type of adventure in mind. As usual, Mrs. Carter does not pay close attention to the girls activities. When a dinner outing and small accident keep her away overnight, DJ, Eliza, Taylor, Kriti, Rhiannon, and Casey are quickly in over their heads. As a party gets completely out of hand, only Gods help can get the Carter House girls out of this gigantic mess.
