"Francesca Delaney has a knack for matching a bride-to-be with the perfect gown. Her shop, The Whispering Dress, is no ordinary bridal boutique. Every gown is vintage, and the dresses seem to share their stories with Francesca, pointing to which woman needs them next. Fran credits her success to two rules: never covet a dress and never sell a dress that led to a doomed marriage. But then she finds a beautiful 1950s couture floor-length gown, and her talent veers into obsession. The owner, however, would quite like the dark past of the dress to remain hidden forever..."--Back cover.

The Whispering Dress Shop will match you up with the perfect wedding dress. Francesca will give you a brief interview when you walk in, then have you try on the dress that will transform you and your wedding experience. What a delightful concept! My fashion merchandising background really helped me to dive into this book experience. Choosing a wedding dress is such a universal experience. The addition to the plot of the Colt family scandals and Francesca's past wedding fail added depth to the romance. Rafael was not always the most likable character (at first he seemed like your classic 80's Harlequin "hero"), but he grew on me. Includes reading group questions and an author interview If you enjoyed this title, you will also like "The Gown" by Jennifer Robson and "The Grace Kelly Dress" by Brenda Janowitz.
