Legend has it that every season there is one dress. The dress that can make your career, ignite a spark with that special someone, or utterly transform your life. For Felicia, who has been in love with her boss for 20 years; for Natalie who has sworn off men since her ex dumped her - for them and for others, life is about to change. And all because of their brush with the dress of the season, the perfect little black number that everyone wants to get their hands on...
"This is a fun book, tightly plotted and perfectly timed for the summer season." Publishers Weekly "[The Dress] sends the reader on a journey with many characters and the little black dress of the season. From the soon-retiring dress designer and the first-time runway model, to the retail salespeople and an actor, this book relates how the dress touches and, often profoundly, changes the lives of all. Even though there were many characters in this book, the author immersed the reader into their lives. Romance, humor, and irony spark the plot as the dress travels from one life to another. A charming read!" -- Kristin Fields, Farnhamville Public Library "In her warm and witty debut novel, Jane L. Rosen writes a love letter to New York City and the tapestry of women who come here with high hopes and big dreams. A little black dress hasn't gotten this much attention since Breakfast at Tiffany's. Whether you're in a stylish sheath or your flannel pajamas, this book will make you feel like a million bucks." Katie Couric "A charming story that twists the lives of New Yorkers around a little black dress... It all works. Each scenario is revisited and broadened as the chapters unfurl... Rosen's debut novel is rich in relationships, written with clarity and humor and surprise twists that bring the tale to a satisfying conclusion. A pure pleasure to read." Kirkus "Sweet, delicious, the perfect summer read about the perfect black dress." -- Jo Piazza and Lucy Sykes, authors of The Knockoff
