'This story was the perfect blend of sweet, cute, and heartwarming.' - Goodreads review
A fresh contemporary romance about a lonely girl looking for love, family and the perfect dress.
Managing a flailing second–hand clothes shop in an English village is not part of Cally Kirkwood's life plan. But she's travelled across the world to meet her birth father and she won't leave until he acknowledges her.
But life happens when you're busy making plans, and Cally soon finds herself completely invested in converting the grungy shop into a beautiful vintage clothing store, despite the opposition of her new employer's son, Sam Hunter.
Sam is instantly attracted to Cally but can't figure her out. There's something she isn't telling him and he doesn't know whether to trust her–yet he can't stay away.
An unexpected discovery means Cally must decide whether her true loyalty lies with her father or Sam. She thought she'd do anything to find love; but choosing between her past and her future may leave her with no love at all.
