Teaser Tuesday & A Ramble - If The Dress Fits by Daisy James

I am so very glad that I requested If The Dress Fits on NetGalley and that Carina UK approved! It's being released this coming Thursday, May 12th.

Callie is going through stuff. Three years ago she basically ran away from her Yorkshire home, friends, family and childhood sweetheart and threw herself into designing and making couture wedding gowns. A famous actress is set to marry a rock star and has put out a call for dress submissions. Callie has toiled for months over her creation for the contest and just as the dress is about to be picked up to be taken to the final judging she receives a call to rush back home for a family medical emergency.  She's almost immediately faced with everything that she's been hiding from and her life gets turned upside down and inside out.

It's a story of love, of course, but not just the romantic kind. It's love of community, of what you do, and of who you are ... with a good smattering of craftiness, fashion and delectable pastries thrown in for good measure. I wanted to visit the little town. I wanted to attack and devour the cupcake pyramid. I wanted to learn how to knit.  I also wanted to shake Callie at times and tell her to snap out of it ... but seeing as how most of her friends did the same I guess it wasn't just me being overly snippy.

Highly recommended to chick lit lovers and I sincerely hope that Daisy James decides to revisit some of the secondary characters from this tale again. I would love to know what happens with them!


  1. It's a nice quote you picked, and I like that you loved it that much. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Sounds like a heartwarming book - I'm impressed that it is exploring the more enduring sort of love - friends, family and a sense of belonging... This is my offering

  3. A book that made you not only want to visit the town, but to learn how to knit?!? Now THAT I find intriguing! Thanks for sharing! My teaser this week is from an urban fantasy by Lisa Shearin: http://abookaddictsview.blogspot.com/2016/05/teaser-tuesday_10.html

  4. I love the teaser. The blurb sounds good too. My teaser this week comes from Second Grave on the Left by Darynda Jones. Happy reading!

  5. Glad you enjoying the book, though I don't think it's for me. Happy reading.
