    The Dress is a short candy that makes you enjoy and taste it like a sweet It reminds a little bit to Chocolat, with the same magic and the same nice characters The most important thing in this romance is not what happens but how Sophie Nicholls tells the story.Beautiful.

    The Dress by Sophie Nicholls is for me mix of book The Dressmaker and a movie Chocolat I have not read book Chocolat so I can not say, it was like the book And somehow, this book had The Casual Vacancy feel too So little bit from here and little bit from there, a bit interesting, a bit romantic, but not really very engaging.The story is about mother and daughter, Fabia and Ella, who have just moved to York, Fabia opens vintage dress shop and Ella goes to new school Fabia is a bright spot in The Dress by Sophie Nicholls is for me mix of book The Dressmaker and a movie Chocolat I have not read book Chocolat so I can not say, it was like the book And somehow, this book had The Casual Vacancy feel too So little bit from here and little bit from there, a bit interesting, a bit romantic, but not really very engaging.The story is about mother and daughter, Fabia and Ella, who have just moved to York, Fabia opens vintage dress shop and Ella goes to new school Fabia is a bright spot in grey York, she match up right dress with right owner, and if needed she makes a whole ne...

    Nothing much really happened in this book, apart from towards the end The Signals were never really explained although this may happen in the second book , and it just left me with a sense of dissatisfaction.

    I really want a shop like this to browse around andthan anything I want inspirational words secretly sewn into the seams of my clotheslumps this book in the Romance category which is a huge injustice as it is muchthan that.I d love to readabout Fabbia s earlier life in both Iran and Paris.
