Today’s Teaser Tuesday:
Title: Nine Women, One Dress
Author: Jane L. Rosen
Publication Date: July 12, 2016
Summary (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…
This book has such a fun and unique concept. I am about halfway through and I am really enjoying it. The way it is written is in multiple perspectives, however, it feels more like short stories that are connected.
Here is the teaser:
“I hope you’re not disappointed- the movie’s not very good. And speaking of scrutiny, there’s a chance that your face will be plastered all over the papers tomorrow. You realize that, right?”
