A Modest Proposal {Review & Giveaway}- CLOSED

WINNER: Comment #22 Shannon

Remember "A Summer in Paris"?  If you were one of the ones who said you wanted to read this book... you are in luck! (well... if you win this giveaway that is!)  Here is yet another fabulous book by Michele Ashman Bell.

Lauryn Alexander loves to design!  Her favorite thing to design is dresses but she is at one of the top fashion designing companies in New York and is stuck designing outerwear.  She designs dresses with her tagline "Modest is Hottest" in mind.  Things just aren't going her way but she is determined that it will all change soon, after all she is almost 30! 

Her best friends from high school have a reunion once a year to open their Butterfly box full of memories and hopes.  They gain strength from each other and help each other find their way in this crazy world. 

Join Lauryn on her trip to becoming the designer she wants to be, finding love and still maintain her standards.  I thought this book was well written and kept my attention.  It is a fun read and really pulls you in!  You will find yourself cheering on the characters as they try to get their lives in order. 

I love that you can even read a sample chapter of this book on Michele's website

Thanks so much for the review. I hope readers will get as attached to the women in this book as I am. The next book, "Hometown Girl" is in stores now.

Well, I want to read this one, of course. I always hope to win free books that sound interesting to read.

And right now I am reading one of the Hannah Swenson mysteries with recipes. (However, rather than a new cookie recipe, I really need something new to make for dinner - any ideas?)
