Publisher's Summary

Emi Harrison has avoided her ex-fiance, Jack Cabot, for nearly two years. Her twin brother Evan's wedding is about to end that streak. From bad bridesmaids' dresses, a hyperactive sister-in-law, a mean girl with even meaner secrets, and too much to drink, nothing seems to go right for Emi, except when she's wearing her little gray dress.

When she speed-walks into Liam Jaxon's bar, things get more complicated. He's gorgeous, southern, and has no past with Emi. He may be exactly what she needs to prove for the last time that she doesn't need or want Jack!

Her favorite little gray dress has made an appearance at nearly every major event in Emi's adult life. Will it make another grand appearance when she least expects it?

Look for good thing from this author

Little Grey Dress is the first book from Aimee Brown. I found her writing engaging and fresh. The story will appeal to those who want to focus on the intricacies of circumstance and romance rather that the physical side. The book is written in a style of present day and flashback chapters. That style isn't my favorite, I found, but the plot more than made up for it.

Stephanie Einstein did a great job with narration and I found her easy to listen to. If you want a sort-of who-dunnit romance, this is the book for you. I'll listen to more books from this author.

Lame-don’t waste the credit

This book was so disappointing bc the reviews were so good! The characters were shallow and unbelievable..there were some who were introduced as if their parts would be significant and then they just fell off with little to no explanation..Liam was just ridiculous and served no real purpose, it was actually baffling how poorly written his entrance/involvement/exit was. The entire plot was underdeveloped and when I was listening I would find myself just shaking my head. Don’t waste your money on this silly excuse for novel.

So predictable

This started out to be an adorable story until the events that continued were characters of not much substance. I listened to it all but was very disappointed in the outcome. It’s one of those books that has a woman thinking things that weren’t what they seemed. A guy that was caught in the middle and a horrible “other woman” which was found out. See! Yeah I didn’t give too many spoilers, but it just seemed like the main character gave in so easily, and seemed like “oh well”. Then all was “and the lived happily ever after”....boring

Truly enjoyable

I really enjoyed this book. The narrator was great, and the story was romantic and sweet. The only reason I gave it a four is because I pretty much figured it all out before the end! But I still really enjoyed it.

Spoiler alert

The conflict resolves too easily. It’s hard to believe that everything works out so perfectly without much struggle... not very realistic

Not to be missed. Very entertaining!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this book to my friends, daughters, nieces and their friends. Little Gray Dress is a very entertaining, yet relatable book. The listener with laugh, cry, and worry about Emi.

Who was your favorite character and why?

It's very hard to pinpoint one favorite character in this story. EMI, of course is sweet, vulnerable and hilarious. You can't help but root for her. jack's mother was a pleasant surprise. At first one would think she was a self-absorbed rich woman. Nothing was farther from the truth.

What about Stephanie Einstein’s performance did you like?

Ms. Einstein was able to capture the personalities of each character with her interpretation. Her timing and pacing was perfect and she had a pleasant voice.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I practically listened to this book in one day. It gave me the incentive to give my home a thorough cleaning. I didn't want to stop listening, so I kept finding chores to do while I listened.

Any additional comments?

I read this book first and I enjoyed it so much that I wanted to hear it come to life on audio. I would like to share my original review:

Little Gray Dress by Aimee Brown is simply a fun read to escape with while spending a day at the beach or cozying up on the couch on a rainy afternoon. Filled with as much humor as heartache, Brown sends main character, Emi Harrison’s life in a tailspin through misunderstandings, miscommunications and evil manipulations.

Ironic that the story revolves around her brother’s wedding, when the very thing that perpetuated her current status was her own impending wedding two years before.

Emi Harrison is not the typical ingénue normally found in women’s fiction or chic-lit books. Is she beautiful? Yes. Great Clothing? Oh, Yes! Especially that little gray dress. Does she have a strong support system of friends around her? She does. Is she stick thin? Absolutely not. Emi is a relatable, young, American woman. She has curves, large breasts and a full bottom, and men are drawn to her. She doesn’t wear a size two, and she makes no apologies for eating two decadent omelets at one sitting.

Page after page, I found myself changing my mind on how I wanted the story to end and who I wanted Emi to end up with. Was ex-fiancé, Jack the cad he seemed to be? And should Emi fall into the arms of the willing stranger she’d only met days before? Whoever she chooses, I want the best for her because she deserves it.

Jack is too weak

It’s a light book and fun to listen to.
Started off interesting but I just couldn’t convince myself that such misunderstandings can happen. Emmy is a great charCter but Jack is just weak and boring.

a good one!

I enjoyed this drama filled book. i was completely engaged from the beginning to end. I Did find myself wishing the book ended differently but was curious as to how the triangle would play out. but in the end she knew what her heart wanted. hooray for Emi, after all she went through with that evil vindictive woman who destroyed her relationship to begin with. great listen!
