Nine Women, One Dress by Jane L. Rosen

Leave a comment

For fashion mavens, every new season brings must-haves.  A must-have handbag (Birkin),  must-have shoes (Louboutin), and the eponymous little black dress.  Must-haves are always in great demand and invariably in short supply, so when only one shop in midtown Manhattan has THE little black dress (Max Hammer), store assistants scramble to fulfill their clients’ needs by allowing the dress to be worn for one-night-only appearances by nine of their best (or most deserving) shoppers (friends).

There’s Natalie, who wants to show her ex-boyfriend what he is missing, and Felicia, who wants her widower boss to see her as more than an assistant.  There’s Andrea, the private investigator trying to catch another cheating husband in the act, and the model, straight from Georgia to the runway whose career is made by wearing this lovely creation.

A charming tale full of longing, romance, and fashion, this book is for anyone looking for a light summer read.  Perfect for the beach, or for your jitney to the Hamptons, this light romp will get you 272 pages closer to earning a prize in our Summer Reading Contest.  For fans of The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger.
