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 17 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; and 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....

"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)
Loved it ! This was just so much fun, great character vignettes, romance, and the all-important little black dress. If you love fashion this is a perfect, quick listen. All the narrators were great.
If you are a fan of "Love, Actually," you will love the storytelling style of this sweet, funny, delightful book--wonderfully performed by an ensemble cast. I have listened to so many audiobooks but this is the first time I've taken the time to write a review. That's how much I enjoyed it. I listened on a recent road trip and would recommend this book to anyone who needs a lift or a laugh. Nine Women, One Dress is a perfect fit.
This is a perfect light beach listen. It was a sweet and funny story that was well performed by a varied cast.
And if you live in NYC and shop at
Bloomingdale's at 59th St--as I do--you will get a kick out of it.
A real feel-good book!
I've an avid reader but a very active mom so no time for reading unless is read to me - love Audible!
I really enjoyed how this story had different narrators for the different character's portion of their story. I was captivated by the different characters in the book. Rosen did an amazing job of creating characters that you really cared about and had an emotional connection with.
I felt like I was listening to a play. The usual one, maybe two narrators was replaced by a cast in this book. They were wonderful.
The story was enjoyable, and a fun ode to NYC. I loved that all of the story lines came together. Perhaps that made it more of a fantasy than a plausible story, but what's wrong with that? Nine Women, One Dress is a delight, and a fun summer listen! I wonder if anyone's got dibs on the movie rights yet...
I enjoyed this book. I think if it as a mix of "Love, Actually" and "The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants". Through this book you get attached to many characters all link by the magic of a single dress.
The story is nice, Well read but mostly well written.
The book is really more a collection of short stories woven together by the dress. It was a lively pace but a little hard to follow at times. The different narrators helped me to keep the characters straight. Overall it was entertaining
