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 the lady he brought to town to assist him with entertaining his potential business partner reneges on their agreement. When this unreliable, and slightly deranged, lady causes the hapless Harriet to lose her job, Oliver 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.
AFTER A FASHION: Extremely fast-paced and humorous, Turano’s latest will please old fans and should make some new ones. A fun romance and some great twists on what could have been a tired, recycled “marriage of convenience” storyline keep this fresh and lively. What a delightful tale! – See more at: http://www.rtbookreviews.com/book-review/after-fashion#sthash.nUQIvyTO.63LKZlI3.dpuf
