Publisher's Summary

Miss Harriet Peabody dreams of the day she can open up a shop selling refashioned gowns to independent working women like herself. Unfortunately, when an errand for her millinery shop job goes sadly awry due to a difficult customer, she finds herself out of an income.

Mr. Oliver Addleshaw is on the verge of his biggest business deal yet, when he learns his potential partner prefers to deal with men who are settled down and wed. When Oliver witnesses his ex not-quite-fiance cause the hapless Harriet to lose her job, he tries to make it up to her by enlisting her help in making a good impression on his business partner.

Harriet quickly finds her love of fashion can't make her fashionable. She'll never truly fit into Oliver's world, but just as she's ready to call off the fake relationship, fancy dinners, and elegant balls, a threat from her past forces both Oliver and Harriet to discover that love can come in the most surprising packages.

Found the main character very annoying

Overall I did enjoy this book (but only because I'm a sucker for a romance story), but the main female character was annoying. She argued far too much in the story without giving people a chance to speak and when they did she refused to listen to them or accept their response, like they don't know their own feelings. I found this to be too unrealistic and unnecessary. The other characters we're much more believable. Undecided whether I will try another book from this author. I did like that it was a clean romance hence my 4 stars.

Disappointing

Although the plot was good, the author seems to be more concerned with coming up with something funny, which only serves to stall the story repeatedly and detract from the purpose of the scene and, especially, from the interactions of the characters. It's like a person who can't quite handle the intensity of the intimate moment, so they have to say something silly. I found myself often rolling my eyes and wishing she'd get to the point. This was particularly dissatisfying at the end of the story when everything should culminate in a satisfying scene, but instead drags on and dilutes the emotion of the moment. The narrator was mostly good, but not great.

An enjoyable story

This is an enjoyable that made me laugh and ponder how I am living my life. Would definitely recommend The narrator did a good job bringing the story to life, but there were a couple times when she used the wrong voice.

After a Fashion

this is a fun book that took me on an imaginary trip back in time.
