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 boss for seventeen years and has one night to finally make the feeling mutual. Andie is a private detective who specializes in gathering evidence on cheating husbands—a skill she unfortunately learned from her own life—and lands a case that may restore her faith in true love. For these three women, as well as half a dozen others in sparkling supporting roles—a young model fresh from rural Alabama, 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 . . .

Great Little Book - Fun Read
I should have reviewed this as soon as I finished it - I don’t think there was anything really graphic in this book except for a couple skinny-dipping, and a few intimate moments for an older couple (gosh, I hope I’m remembering that correctly).
If you enjoy fashion, this was a fun read.
There are indeed 9 women who wear this haute couture dress, and their stories are diverse and interesting (you either love the women or you loathe them! Lol!); but, for me, the background of how the dress was designed (and the story of the men behind it) was equally a great part of the story.
I’d have given it five stars but having that many scenarios did make it a little choppy. It was NOT hard to follow, but there was a lot going on.
Several scenarios intersect at the end, which made it fun!
I truly enjoyed it, and I hope you will, too!
Happy and lighthearted
Reading this book was delightful. It's the feeling you get when someone has a newborn and asks if you want to hold her. Or when you're out to dinner and you decide "what the heck, I'm going to have pie!" and you do and it's delicious! Reading this book is all about the feeling it leaves you with. There is nothing dark, mysterious, sinister, sad or political in this book. It is, quite simply, fun to read.
