Summary

Dora has always taken the path of least resistance. She went to the college that offered her a scholarship, is majoring in "vagueness studies," and wears whatever shows the least dirt. She falls into a job at the college coffee shop, and a crush on her flirty boss, Gary. Just when she's about to test Gary's feelings, Mimi, the grandmother who raised her, suffers a stroke. Dora rushes back home to Forsyth, NC, and finds herself running her grandmother's vintage clothing store. The store has always been a fixture in Dora's life; though she grew up more of a jeans-and-sweatshirt kind of girl, before she even knew how to write, Mimi taught her that a vintage 1920s dress could lift a woman's spirit. While working there, Dora befriends Mimi's adorable contractor, Conrad. Is he after Dora, or is working from a different blueprint? And why did Mimi start writing down-and giving away-stories of the dresses in her shop?

Nice story

This isn't an earth-shattering book, but a very nice story. It is worth a read (listen) simply for that reason. I thoroughly enjoyed it, laughed & cried. The southern accent added a bit extra too, especially for the characters of Camille and Tiffany. Dora had a lot of spunk and I liked that.
