___

Fran’s wedding dress shop is utterly unique. A treasure trove of vintage lace, silk and satin, every single one of Fran’s gowns is destined to be the perfect match for a different bride. But not as you might expect…

Something bold for the shy and retiring.
Something simple for the woman who is unafraid to stand out.
And something dazzling for the bride who wouldn’t normally dare to be different.

Your own perfect dress could be a complete surprise! But not to Fran … wisdom is whispered from bride to bride through their wedding dresses and Fran knows exactly who needs to hear each dress’s secrets!

When Fran finds her very own perfect dress she can’t wait to unravel its history. But first, she has to get to know the mysterious son of the previous owner…
