Publisher's Summary

Since her parents' mysterious deaths many years ago, scientist Cora Sparks has spent her days in the safety of her university lab or at her grandmother Etta's dress shop.

Tucked away on a winding Cambridge street, Etta's charming tiny store appears quite ordinary to passersby, but the colourfully vibrant racks of beaded silks, delicate laces and jewel-toned velvets hold bewitching secrets - with just a few stitches from Etta's needle, these gorgeous gowns have the power to free a woman's deepest desires....

    What did you like most about The Dress Shop of Dreams?

    As a fashion designer, I loved the in depth descriptions of the sumptuous fabrics inside the magical dress shop. The story revolves around unrequited love and the importance of having a basic confidence in oneself to make your own magic happen. The chapters end with bombshells... be warned... you won't be able to stop listening!

    Story
    "Escapism at his worst"

    Full of common places about love and uncommunicative and manipulative females characters with the notable exception of the protagonist.
