A plus-size Texas gal has designs on an old crush in New York Times bestselling author Carolyn Brown’s exuberant, bighearted romance.
In the small town of Celeste, Texas, Mitzi Taylor has never quite fit inside the lines. Nearly six feet tall, flame-haired, and with a plus-size spirit to match every curve, she’s found her niche: a custom wedding-dress boutique catering to big brides-to-be with big dreams. Taking the plunge alongside her two best friends, she’s proud they’ve turned The Perfect Dress into a perfect success.
Just when Mitzi has it all pulled together, Graham Harrison walks back into her life, looking for bridesmaid dresses for his twin daughters. A still-strapping jock whose every gorgeous, towering inch smells like aftershave, the star of all Mitzi’s high school dreams is causing quite a flush.
For Mitzi, all it takes is a touch to feel sparks flitting around her like fireflies. She can just imagine what a kiss could do. Graham’s feeling it, too. And he’s about to make that imagination of Mitzi’s run wild. Is it just a hot summer fling, or are Mitzi’s next designs for herself and seeing her own dreams come true?
As women we’re so caught up in how we look and what size we wear it’s amazing we’re able to get past that to get to the heart of the matter – our hearts.
The Perfect Dress 👗 made me laugh, cringe, and cry. Some of these people are so hateful sure some of it is size shaming but some of it is just nastiness.
As a book, The Perfect Dress was amazing. It was fun, authentic, and heart-moving. The characters and their love for each other is something you’ll envy forever.
But, The Perfect Dress is more. It’s a poignant reminder that we have a responsibility to look at a person beyond the size of their clothes before we determine who or what they are. We have a responsibility to stand up to people who are treating others wrong – especially if it’s because of something like their age, race, gender, or side. And we have a responsibility to be respectful to others. All others.
