This is the BEST book I’ve read in years. It’s fantastic!
It’s the perfect summer read. I promise.
It’s written in first POV, and it’s not your regular romance story. There are several protagonists, each with their own story and all are somehow connected to the “little black dress” of the season. Each character is unique in their own way and super funny. There were times I couldn’t stop laughing, as there were other times when it had me at “aaw”.
This story reminds me of my favorite Spanish TV series called “Velvet”. I can say it’s all because of the famous dress, the pattern maker, and the crew at Bloomingdale’s.
Now I wish this could be made into a movie. It’d be my favorite.
Nine Women, One Dress
Jane L. Rosen
July 12, 2016
A charming, hilarious, irresistible romp of a novel that brings together nine unrelated women, each touched by the same little black dress that weaves through their lives, bringing a little magic with it. Natalie is a Bloomingdale's salesgirl mooning over her lawyer ex-boyfriend who's engaged to someone else after just two months. Felicia has been quietly in love with her happily married boss for twenty years; now that he's a lonely widower, she just needs the right situation to make him see her as more than the best executive assistant in Midtown Manhattan. Andrea is a private detective specializing in gathering evidence on cheating husbands--a skill she unfortunately learned from her own life--and can't figure out why her intuition tells her the guy she's tailing is one of the good ones when she hasn't trusted a man in years. For these three women, as well as half a dozen others in sparkling supporting roles--a young model fresh from rural Georgia, a diva Hollywood star making her Broadway debut, an overachieving, unemployed Brown grad who starts faking a fabulous life on social media, to name just a few--everything is about to change, thanks to the dress of the season, the perfect little black number everyone wants to get their hands on . . .
