Rochelle reads a romance!

Book genre two for the Book Bingo reading challenge was a romance novel – something I wasn’t looking forward to.  I was going to go with someone like Danielle Steel or Nicholas Sparks, someone well known, but then decided to  randomly pick a book from our display stand and that’s how I came to read ‘The Dress’ by Jane Rosen.

I went into reading this book knowing it was probably going to be light and fluffy and that’s exactly what it was but I did find myself kind of enjoying it, especially the first half of the book, by the second half it was getting a little too cheesy for me and typically ended with all the main characters getting their fairy tale ending.

This book follows the lives of nine women touched by the magic of one little black dress.  From the young runway model who first modelled the dress to the middle-aged assistant  who’d secretly been in love with her boss for many years and who is now recently widowed.  This book is rich with characters from all walks of life.

The Dress by Jane Rosen is available from Thames Library. You can reserve it for $1 via our online catalogue here. You might also be interested in The Necklace by Cheryl Jarvis.
