After a Fashion: A Review

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 he learns his potential partner prefers to deal with men who are settled down and wed. When Oliver witnesses his ex not-quite-fiance cause the hapless Harriet to lose her job, he tries to make it up to her by enlisting her help in making a good impression on his business partner.

Will Oliver and Harriet discover that love can come in the most surprising packages?

My Thoughts:
This is the first book by Jen Turano, and I loved it.
Harriet was spunky and strong, and the rest of the characters were unique and just as interesting. Even the dog added to the fun of the story.
The plot is quick--things happening on every page, funny mishaps and serious social implications.
Everything is tied together in a neat little package at the end and presented as a fun, lighthearted read.
I was given this book in exchange for my review. My thoughts are my own.
