The secret past of a grandmother and a racy and dangerous dress from 1928 lead Jane on a the adventure of a lifetime in this delightful fun and frothy romantic read. In the space of a few short weeks the dress catapults her out of her small life in small town America to Paris â€˜Franceâ€™ with numerous culture clashes and life lessons. Fans of Sophie Kinsella should give her a try.
â€˜There are dresses, and then there are dangerous dressesâ€¦ Everyone knows dresses can be powerful things. For example, Cinderellaâ€™s fairy godmother gave her a beautiful dress, which empowered her to go to the ball, etc. My grandmotherâ€™s dress is also powerful, and with all due respect to Cinderella, it must have given my 19-year-old grandmother powers that would make a fairy godmother blush...â€™
If thereâ€™s one dress that could make Jane Stuart think that anything was possible, itâ€™s her late grandmotherâ€™s vintage 1920s Parisian dress. And when the dress becomes her ticket out of Nowheresville hometown, Jane takes her first tentative steps on her own reckless, passionate, and oh-so-dangerous adventure...
