A charming, hilarious, sweet-as-candy romp of a debut 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 sales girl mooning over her lawyer ex-boyfriend who's engaged to someone else after just two months. Felicia has been quietly in love with her happily married boss for twenty years; now that he's a lonely widower, she just needs the right situation to make him see her as more than the best executive assistant in midtown Manhattan. Andrea is a private detective specializing in gathering evidence on cheating husbands--a skill she unfortunately learned from her own life--and she can't figure out why her intuition tells her the guy she's tailing is one of the good ones when she hasn't trusted a man in years.
     For these three women, as well as half a dozen others in sparkling supporting roles--including a young model fresh from rural Georgia; a diva Hollywood star making her Broadway debut; and an over-achieving, unemployed Brown grad who starts faking a fabulous life on social media--everything is about to change, thanks to the dress of the season, the perfect little black number everyone wants to get their hands on. . . .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute and easy read! Bought this book on a whim and loved the plot line of the story. Loved how the dress works it's way into each person's life and what kind of impact it has. A charming story!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun, Charming and Whimsical Pre-dating this literary purchase, I'd heard so many mixed reviews of this story that I was torn. Finally, I decided the only person qualified to critic the story for my, was precisely me. Que book purchase, read commencement and finally the turning of the last page. Needless to say, all three of those events took place within a four hour time-span, and I couldn't have been happier with the results. Rosen took such a delightful concept and gave it life. Not just any life, but one that was so fun to watch unfold in my minds eyes as I swooned page after page, chapter after chapter. This story had it all! Incredible to think just how small a world truly is, and how many peoples lives are intertwined without ever realizing, through something so simple as what you try on in the dressing room of your local department store.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A little Confusing Overall, the premise of the story was good and some characters were interesting. I just felt that some characters were left hanging and the title was misleading - that there wasn't as many as 9 women. still, i finished it and it was a good distraction
