    1. This book is very much an exploration of couture as atmosphere With access to accoutrements from her Aunt Izzy that span from the 20s to the 50s, Paisley Vandermeir immerses herself and by extension the reader in various epochs of haute couture This works very well to establish an ethereal mood that I came to enjoy than I expected that I would The thing is that Paisley is pretty ethereal herself, though you come to realize how much of that is a defense mechanism for finding herself astride two [...]

    5. Paisley grew up on the fringe of high society, never quite fitting in Her Aunt Izzy, on her deathbed, asks Paisley to return something to an ex lover from long ago Aunt Izzy was the one person she could count on and Paisley takes the task seriously, as well as honoring the wishes of her aunt s will Wearing her aunt s collection of vintage couture makes her stand out, but yet society doesn t appreciate the styles Except for one Christopher Quincy Maitland Problem, he s the grandson of her aunt s [...]

    6. So I enjoyed this The writing style kind of reminded me of the 20 s and I really liked that The romance happens quickly, but it works for me Both characters are figuring out what they want and that it might not be what they assumed they wanted and it makes that they would figure out that what they want is each other.I received this book for free through a promotion the author did for Dear Author readers Opinions are my own.

    7. This is a fun read especially if you like vintage fashion Paisley s eclectic personality makes her an interesting heroine She s like a cool breeze from an open window, but behind her front of sophistication she s got a tender heart and a basketful of fears and doubts I really enjoyed her story.

    8. The old Loveswepts were true classics romance on the wild side I love this one with the heroine raised by an old eccentric who can t quite find her place in the wealthy milieu her family once traversed And the hero is absolutely to die for

    9. Paisley is one of those unforgettable characters so full of life and passion that you just wish you knew her in real life
