Kurzbeschreibung

The Amazon Kindle UK Top 5 Bestseller
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 jewellery in Fabbia's shop are many different stories - and the story of one particular dress. 
This is a full-length novel for lovers of vintage and readers of contemporary romance/fantasy.

**Also by Sophie Nicholls and available in all Kindle stores:
The Dream - Book Two in the Everyday Magic Trilogy.
37 Photographs - A modern romance set in Edinburgh and Rome.

** Coming soon:
The Glass, Book Three 
in the Everyday Magic Trilogy is due for release in Winter 2013.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Smooth read 7. September 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I opened the book and time flew. Every character has a story and it skillfully weaves into the present with amazing accuracy. The detail is authentic, the story line credible and each character exotic, nevertheless. The story keeps you on edge to the last page, to find out the secrets each person holds. I only regret that the cover is far too pale to do the contents justice.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Easy, Quick Light-hearted read 26. März 2012
Von jessicat1511 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I bough this book for 99c on the kindle store and it was the perfect book to read while on holidays.
If i had been reading it in my normal everyday life I would have like to see it go a bit more in depth in to their stories, but for a holiday it was easy to read.

I really enjoyed the stories from the "Old Country" and thought they were woven in well throughout the story and used to help the writer make her point.

The only slight criticism I would provide would be that it didn't read like it was set in 2010, at least my school life wasn't like that, although perhaps schools in England are different to Australia.

Overall it was a nice, easy, book that I would happily recommend for a light-hearted, quick read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Loved it! 5. Dezember 2011
Von E-chan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
When I got this ebook from Ms Sophie (Librarything Giveaway), I was told that "there's a little surprise waiting for you in the pages of The Dress." Needless to say, I wasn't disappointed. In Chapter 10, a character Lady Eustacia Beddowes is introduced! How psyched was I? Very! My name is rare enough that it's hard to find it mentioned in a book. Plus, I become a "Lady".

But I'm sure no one is going to rush out and get it just because my name is there, so here's my hones opinion: even if my name didn't appear (sorry, very excited about this), I'd still love the book and recommend it to everyone.

The Dress has been compared to Chocolat, and there are similarities. But The Dress focuses on vintage clothing and has a slight feeling of magical realism to it, especially with the names like "Old Country" and sewing words into the clothes and of course, The Signals. It reminds me of a fairytale.

But if this is like a fairytale, it's more like their original versions rather than the cleaned-up, Disney ones: it's dark at times. The book isn't all sweetness and light, with not only Fabbia's secret but also with Jean Cushworth and her maliciousness. She reminds me of the evil queen, although I'm happy to see that Katrina, her daughter, has a happy ending.

The dual plots in this book: Ella and her bildunsroman journey with Fabbia (Ella's mom) and her secret (plus her blossoming romance with the Doctor) joins together very well. After all, they are one family unit. And at the right moments, short stories, such as that of the soulskin and La Llorona (The Weeping Woman) add to the sense of atmosphere in the book.

Although I'm really not into clothes, the descriptions of vintage clothing are really marvellous (though I know better than to try them on).

Bottom line: Read this book. And I'm not saying this because I got a free copy and found my name in it.

Disclaimer: If you managed to miss the first two times I mentioned I got a free copy of the book, there's a good chance you didn't read my review at all. But just so you know, I wasn't asked to write a positive review, it just turned out this way.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Lucky Choice 4. Dezember 2011
Von waterloo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

I bought this book because it sounded as if it might be ok and also to be honest because of the price. I thought 'if I don't like it I've only wasted £1'. It was the best money that I've spent for a long time. The book was thoroughly enchanting and I quickly warmed to Ella and Fabbia. I was up reading this at 2 am trying to finish it and when I did I was sorry it had come to an end. If you want to try a new author then try this one.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The Dress 15. Oktober 2011
Von abshepherd - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Three and 3/4 stars for this one.

Sophie Nicholls was kind enough to send me this book to read and review. Thank you Sophie!

The Dress starts out as a sweet, gentle story of a vibrant, exotic mum who opens a vintage dress shop, and her self-conscious teen-aged daughter - the new kid in town who is having trouble figuring out where she fits in. The first half of the story continues in this vein as we get to know Fabbia and Ella. Enjoyable reading.

About half way through things take a slightly darker turn and in the end we learn more of what has shaped the lives of Fabbia and Ella.

It reads as if it is a period piece yet it is set in modern day.

I thoroughly enjoyed this novel.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Gentle, honest, must-read chick lit 22. Oktober 2011
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I never write reviews. I'm no good at them and tbh it's rare to find a book I wish would never end. So if I'm writing my first ever Amazon review about this book then it's clearly special. I'm not going to write any kind of plot description because this book needs discovering by itself, just like a great vintage store or outstanding coffee. Buy it, and get comfy when you start it because the world will drift gently away while you read.
