Nine Women, One Dress by Jane L. Rosen
In Jane L. Rosen’s first adult novel, Nine Women, One Dress, Natalie is a Bloomingdale’s sales associate 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.
For these three women, as well as half a dozen others in sparkling supporting roles–everything is about to change, thanks to the dress of the season, the perfect little black number everyone wants to get their hands on.
The story is told in interconnected stories where the consistent element is the dress, for some wearing the dress brings good things and for others, not so much. The book is satisfying because happiness comes to those who deserve it. Nine Women, One Dress can be reserved at any branch of the Haliburton County Public Library.
