READER REVIEW: Girl in a Vintage Dress

Sorry for being absent the last few days but I have a sick kidlet who's worsening as the week progresses: hacking cough, sore throat, sore tummy, fever. Winter lurgies are the worst!

But this brightened my day, the first reader review for GIRL IN A VINTAGE DRESS (releasing simultaneously in the UK & USA in 2 weeks!)

Here's a snippet:

GIRL IN A VINTAGE DRESS is a wonderfully tender romance that I found charming, absorbing and moving. Nicola Marsh is a terrific writer who creates likeable characters readers are sure to take to their hearts. I found Lola to be a realistic, flawed yet resilient heroine who seriously lacks self confidence and is constantly under-selling herself and Chase was a strong, charismatic and turned out to be a sensitive hero, I absolutely adored. Even the secondary characters, the four B’s, are to be loved.

I liked author Nicola Marsh’s style. It seemed like she is writing about real people in situations that could happen. Scenarios come alive as do the people with her use of witty dialogue and situation that helps us know them better.

GIRL IN A VINTAGE DRESS is well worth reading!

Thanks to Nas (from beautiful Fiji) for taking the time to review on Goodreads and other book sites. It's a huge plus for an author to have readers do this.

I loved the premise and the setting of GIRL IN A VINTAGE DRESS. Every second girl in real life lacks self-confidence in herself so it was great reading about Lola! And how she blossomed when she had the love of Chase!

You're welcome, Nas :)

To tap into real emotions is one of the many challenges for an author, I'm so glad you enjoyed how Lola blossomed with Chase.
