THE CHRISTMAS DRESS
Oh boy, this book left me with all the feels. Poor Meg has lost all of her family and goes back home to Chicago to become the owner/manager of her father’s apartment building. Along the way, she meets the wonderful tenants, her dad’s hunky handyman, and her father’s unpaid assistant. Of course, along the way humour ensues, the building is old and falling apart, not to mention Meg is dead broke. The building has a unique and interesting history and Meg sees it as a way to save the building and its tenants. The book is also romantic and I loved Logan, he made my heart swoon.
Now about that dress. Meg is a fashion guru, styles her own outfits, and even worked for a magazine with an Anna Wintour like boss. She gets inspired by a vintage dress that resident and new friend, Ellie, gives her. She ends up entering a contest. I love how the dress weaved its way through the women’s stories, I could imagine them wearing it and how it made them feel, that was the best thing about this book and it was such an enjoyable Christmas read. I also have Home for Christmas by this author and am looking forward to reading it as well.
