Little Black Dress Review + Giveaway

*Do you have a magical Little Black Dress? Enter for your chance to win a copy of the fabulous Susan McBride‘s latest novel, Little Black Dress!

Contest runs up to Sept. 1st!

Everyone has a Little Black Dress at home.

It makes you feel chic, confident, and full of life the moment you slip into it.

But what if you had one that also gave you a glimpse into your future?

That’s nuts, right? Totally crazy which is exactly what Toni believes when she starts to have visions of the future. Toni is an ambitious wedding planner, the type of girl who’s focused on planning everyone’s else happily ever after.

Of course, it’d be a tad easier setting up her happily ever after if she didn’t have a vision of her with another man. But how can you argue with a little magic black dress?

Toni’s life becomes entwined in a world where she sees a possible future laid out at her feet. But what can she do? What should she do?

These are all questions that her own mother, Evie, and her aunt, Anna, asked before. Evie and Anna found the dress together at a gypsy shop long ago. The night before Anna’s wedding, she wore the dress to her rehersal dinner where she saw a vision.

The next day she vanished. She left her sister, Evie, the calm one, to pick up her mess. She also left her stranded with the dress. Evie quickly becomes convinced the dress is more bad news than it’s worth and tries to it destroy by throwing it into a river. That’s when she’s also struck by a vision. Shocked by what she sees, she slips on the nearby rocks and almost drowns….only to be pulled up by handsome man who falls for her on the spot. The same handsome man from the vision.

The lives of two very different sisters, Evie and Anna, and one daughter, Toni, are brought together all by the fate of one dress. This one dress will expose family secrets, mistakes, and chances that each woman has made in love and in life.

Susan McBride has really outdone herself with this latest novel. Not only does it involve a killer fabulous plot, the book is told from two perspectives: Evie and Toni. You get to see a different world and time through both of their eyes. This alone makes the book incredibly captivation, which is why I had a hard time prying myself from it once I started reading!

In addition, the topics discussed will grip you to your core including love, loss, miscarriage, family dysfunction, and a never ending hope that there is something and someone out in the world who’s meant just for us.

    My grandmother was always quoting famous books and literature and one of her favorites was ‘Les Miserables”. She spoke about the man being sent to prison for stealing a loaf of bread. To me, that means the things are not always black and white. You have to look at the reason for the actions. This meant a lot to me. She was very poor but she always knew what was important in life.

    My mom always said, “If you don’t ask, the answer is always no.” What have you got to lose?

    My mom taught me not to worry about money. She said, “You’ll get some more”. In fact, she said that about everything you might have lost or need more of. “You’ll get some more.” I live by that. 🙂 And boy, do I ever miss her.

    My daughter has taught me that there is always something to be positive about. Even when everything seems like it is falling down around us, that girl just has the best, most positive attitude I have ever seen. She wakes up every morning with a big smile on her face and things that would upset anyone else just bounce right off of her.

  44. So sorry by accident I posted twice where I shared the contest on my FB wall, my bad 😦 I so so want to read this book! Love the cover, love Susan McBride! I also majored in event planning and would luv to plan weddings, just like Jennifer Lopez does in “The Wedding Planner.”

    I have learned such great and wonderful pieces of advice from many women in my life. My mother has taught me to treat others the way they want to be treated. The following is the “Golden Rule” that is expressed in the Bible: “”Treat Others As You Would Like To Be Treated”
