The Dress by Sophie Nicholls

Today I am reviewing The Dress by Sophie Nicholls.

Blurb: Sumptuous vintage fashions, a very modern love story and a sprinkling of ‘everyday magic.’ The owner of York’s new vintage dress shop is not quite what she seems…
Meet Ella and her mother Fabbia Moreno who arrive in York one cold January day, to set up their vintage dress shop.

The flamboyant Fabbia wants to sell beautiful dresses to nice people and move on from her difficult past. Ella just wants to fit in. But not everyone is on their side.

Will Fabbia overcome the prejudices she encounters? What’s the dark secret she’s hiding? And do the silk linings and concealed seams of her dresses contain real spells or is this all just ‘everyday magic’?

Among the leopard-print shoes, tea-gowns and costume jewelry in Fabbia’s shop are many different stories – and the story of one particular dress.

My Review: This was a enjoyable read. I loved the touches of mystic that Fabbia weaves into her life. The thought of a little bit of magic sewn into the hidden areas of the clothes she sells was a great touch. Loved the history behind the clothes and the glimpses of her childhood in the old country. The daughters character wasn’t something I really enjoyed and the ending left something to be desired. I give this book 3 stars.
