*I received this book through netgalley in exchange for a honest review*
This was very sweet and a fun read.
Synopsis from Goodreads:
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…
There are quite a few characters and many story lines so, sometimes it is hard to keep track of things. Personally, I enjoyed Jeremy & Natalie’s story the most with Arthur & Felicia coming in a close second.
The slight connections to other story lines in other lines was really pleasant to see. Although, some story lines seemed unneeded. Then again, maybe it is to show life doesn’t always change for the best.
There are funny parts, parts that made me choke up, parts that had me cheering, or even groaning over bad decisions.
Would I Recommend this book? YES! Such a light and fun read. I had a great time reading it. Any time I can read a book without being too distracted by my fiance watching LoL streams in the background, I definitely know that the book is a keeper!
