Almost a year ago I picked this book up in L.A.X Airport on my way to a summer vacation in Chicago. It was cover love at first sight, and if you must know I’m a sucker for a cute cover and this one being light pink with a dress and pretty typography definitely caught my eye! Then I read the description and knew I had to have it even at the airport price.
It’s been sitting on my cute little TBR cart ever since looking pretty with all of my other pretty unread books (I sort of have a book buying problem). Finally I picked it up this week and devoured it in about three days. To be honest I’m annoyed that I took me this long to read it but I also feel like I was meant to read it right now. I’ve had a bad couple of days and this book has really helped to cheer me up.
Enough backstory… here’s what the books actually about!
“Natalie is a Bloomingdale’s salesgirl mooning over her ex-boyfriend; Felicia has been quitely in love with her boss for seventeen years; and Andre is a cynical private detective who specializes in cheating husbands.
For these three women, as well as many others- a young model fresh from Alabama, a Hollywood star making her Brodway debut, an unemployed Brown grad who’s been faking a fabulous life on social media- everything is about to change… and all thanks to the power of one perfect little black dress.” (Taken from the description on the back of the book.)
I absolutely loved this book and have to say that it’s my favorite read of the year so far! It beautifully wove the stories of different characters together that were all connected by one little black dress. I was eager to turn each page and see where the dress would lead us next in the story and sad when I had to put it down. But by the end of the book I felt happy and my day was brightened by the thought that we’re all connected in some way even by something as small as a dress.
If you love stories told in multiple viewpoints and looking for a great new read pick this one up! Also it’s great for fans of movies like Valentine’s Day!
Until next time…
