Description

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 . . .show more

Review quote

"Chick lit at its best..." ..".the perfect summer read..." "Valentine's Day meets The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, this novel intertwines the stories of nine women all connected to one single LBD." Instant praise for NINE WOMEN, ONE DRESS "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 "Sweet, delicious, the perfect summer read about the perfect black dress." --Jo Piazza and Lucy Sykes, authors of The Knockoff "Nine Women, One Dress is a love letter to New York. Rosen deftly peels back the layers and reveals the lives that inhabit the skyscrapers, brownstones, the department stores, hotels, and parks." --Liz Matthews, Town & Country "Valentine's Day meets The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, this novel intertwines the stories of nine women all connected to one single LBD. From runway models to love-struck assistants, the power of a little black dress is even more overwhelming than we ever thought -- shopping spree, anyone?" --Brit & Co. "First class chick lit as well as a love letter to New York, this delightful charming story around the happenings of one little black dress and the women who wear it is a sweet, simple, satisfying, and cheeky summer read. You'll want to dig your little black number out of the closet and play along." --Huffington Post "Jane L. Rosen delivers a frothy, fast-paced story of a dress and its odyssey." --Shelf Awareness "Chick lit at its best. If this book were a dress, it would fit everyone perfectly and flatter everyone's figure." --Library Journal, starred review "Nine Women, One Dress is a completely compelling, utterly charming book and I loved every page. I still can't shut up about it." --Book Bitch "This delightful ode to the power of the perfect frock follows nine women--each of whom dons the season's "it" dress--as they fall in love, suffer betrayal and start anew." --People ..". A charming lark of a novel. If you're longing for a break from reality, Nine Women, One Dress provides a one-size-fits-all happy ending." --USA Today "A fantastic comedy of errors-romance-drama which is entertaining, funny, and makes you want to run to the nearest shopping center to get a good LBD for yourself." --Jerusalem Post "The influence of this particular dress on nine women (and a few men) is loosely woven together in this lovely novel....a delightful set of stories...revolves around Bloomingdale's....This quick read is at turns poignant and laugh-out-loud funny, and readers who like chick lit will find it absolutely adorable." --Booklist "If you enjoyed The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants as a tween, you'll relish in this adult-friendly story about nine New York women whose lives are forever changed after they slip on a very special LBD." --InStyle.com "Unique, refreshing and heartwarming, this novel is full of humor and personality....At times hilarious and other times touching, Rosen's latest is impossible to put down." --RT Book Reviews "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." --Kirkusshow more
