#BookReview: Little Gray Dress by Aimee Brown

little gray dressAbout the Book

Emi Harrison has avoided her ex-fiance, Jack Cabot, for nearly two years. Her twin brother Evan’s wedding is about to end that streak.

From bad bridesmaid’s dresses, a hyperactive sister-in-law, a mean girl with even meaner secrets, and too much to drink, nothing seems to go right for Emi, except when she’s wearing her little gray dress.

When she speed-walks into Liam Jaxon’s bar, things get more complicated. He’s gorgeous, southern, and has no past with Emi. He may be exactly what she needs to prove for the last time that she doesn’t need or want Jack!

Her favorite little gray dress has made an appearance at nearly every major event in Emi’s adult life. Will it make another grand appearance when she least expects it?

My Review

What a pure joy to read, from beginning to end. I would have never guessed this was Aimee Brown’s debut novel, from the strong writing, laugh out loud and cringe worthy moments, and a beyond satisfying ending. I enjoyed the structure of the story, switching seamlessly from present to past, and the secondary cast of characters added comedic value and plenty of touching moments. I particularly enjoyed Jack’s mother! This would be a great addition to any TBR list for chick lit and romantic comedy fans.
