Five Brides-One Dress Kate Winton-Jones is marrying one of America's most eligible bachelors. Edward Carnarvon III is rich, handsome and hers. But at the final fitting of her wedding gown, one of the seamstresses pricks her and a tiny blood spot appears on the outrageously expensive gown. Its famous designer fires the clumsy seamstress on the spot, whereupon the girl puts a curse on the dress and storms out. Kate doesn't believe in curses. She's modern, American and in love with the perfect guy. What could go wrong? But that very evening she meets a man who makes her question her future. And then she discovers that Edward has been hiding a secret or two... and before you can say, "This dress is so cursed," she's on the run from Edward, his family, her mother, the paparazzi and the person she thought she was. When the man who discovers her hiding place turns out to be the last man she should trust, it's time to throw her cautious good sense out with the satin shoes she won't be wearing. Playing it safe hasn't done her much good. Maybe it's time to play by a new set of rules. Her rules. Sometimes Prince Charming is the one who turns out to be the frog, and true love appears in the most unexpected places. Follow the cursed dress through five sets of bridal hands as four more women join The Almost Wives Club. These are complete novels. Watch for: Secondhand Bride coming in April, 2015 Bridesmaid for Hire coming in May, 2015 The Wedding Flight in June, 2015 If the Dress Fits in July 2015 To stay on top of all new releases, sign up for Nancy's newsletter at www.nancywarren.net… (more)

Nice easy read. Can't remember if I got it for free or spent 99 cents. Doubt I'll try reading the others. ( )

First novel in the series. Kate Winton-Jones is about to marry rich and handsome Edward Carnarvon III. But a curse is put on her dress at her final fitting. From there everything seems to go wrong for Kate.. or does it?

Not a bad read. It's your typical romance novel with nothing to make it really stand out. At times it was cute and cozy but other times I found things were blatantly convenient and they had me rolling my eyes. And this line stuck out for me - "Who got to be an adult and didn't even have a driver's license?" Lots of people. Don't be so ignorant. ( )
