QUICK NOTES: Nine Women, One Dress by Jane L. Rosen
QUICK NOTES: Oh my goodness, I really enjoyed this book! it's just like the interweaving anthologies of Love Actually, Valentines Day, He's Just Not That Into You... very sweet book. You meet several women, as well as a slew of diverse and entertaining supporting characters, who in some way chronicle a single "it dress" as it makes it's rounds of nine women.
Some of the stories are sweet, some are dramatic, and some are hilarious. And even though the stories may be separate, they all find common threads and criss-cross in the best ways.
I definitely had a few favorite characters that I was rooting for and it was extremely easy to get sucked into the lives of the characters. All in all it's a perfect little chick-lit book, great for Summer reading or cozy days curled up inside. Easy and delightful!
I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

SYNOPSIS: 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…
