A Black Tie Affair (book) Review & Giveaway CLOSED


Black Tie Affair by Sherrill Bodine
ISBN #:978-0-446-61859-5
Published January 2010
$6.99 / $8.99

Synopsis
(from book):

Fashion curator Athena Smith will do anything to get her hands on the Clayworth family's couture collection for her exhibit. So she's thrilled when she's called in to authenticate the gowns...until she falls ill while examining them and wakes up face-to-face with notorious Chicago bachelor Drew Clayworth.

Drew doesn't trust Athena one bit. He still believes she betrayed him years ago. So when his family's gowns go missing and Athena offers her help in exchange for the dresses, he reluctantly accepts. But they're both taken off guard by the barely restrained passion that's still between them...and the memories that are both bitter and sweet. As they work together to find the dresses, can they resist the sparks between them?

Wonderfully written, this was definitely a book I couldn't put down. I loved how it revolved around Athena's love for dresses, specifically Bertha Palmer dresses, and was upbeat.

I'd definitely give this one 4.5 out of 5 stars!
