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 seventeen 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, 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 . . . From the Hardcover edition.
Early praise for NINE WOMEN, ONE DRESS : "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 "Chick lit at its best. If this book were a dress, it would fit everyone perfectly and flatter everyone's figure." - Library Journal , starred review "A charming story that twists the lives of New Yorkers around a little black dress... It all works. Each scenario is revisited and broadened as the chapters unfurl... Rosen's debut novel is rich in relationships, written with clarity and humor and surprise twists that bring the tale to a satisfying conclusion. A pure pleasure to read." - Kirkus
