Wow! The Dressmaker’s Secret is a dual timeline story that will keep your attention from beginning to end. I had not read any of Lorna Cook’s prior books but I really enjoyed this one.
The parts of the story that deal with Coco Channel has been thoroughly research. The story of Adele, Theo, Melodie, Cleo and the rest are extremely well written and have been intertwined with Chanel’s that this makes for a spectacular and entertaining story.
Thank you to #netgalley and #harper360,avon for allowing me to read this ARC for an honest review. All opinions expressed above are my own.
