    A fast-paced, compelling read!!!

    'A Dangerous Dress' is a thoroughly enjoyable read about a thoroughly enticing principal character, Jane Stuart, a spunky 25-year old midwesterner who attacks life with little fear. Julia Holden's winning style makes it difficult to put the novel down until you've read it from cover to cover!

    well written character study,

    Jane Stuart always dreamed of making it in the big city where she feels fame awaits her. However, for now she remains a small town girl with only dreams of leaving Kirland, Indiana for the bright lights of the big time fashion world in New York or Paris. --- Jane¿s grandma dies. Amongst the inheritance is a beautiful in excellent condition 1920s Persian dress that totally fascinates her. She decides to investigate the origin of the dress and her grandmother¿s life for a school paper. To her surprise the paper is published and comes to the attention of French movie director Gerard Duclos. He invites Jane to come to Paris, which she accepts as the first step on her journey to fame not yet understanding that fame is not everything, love and to live is. --- A DANGEROUS DRESS is a complex tale with a relatively simple story line that is the beauty of the novel and the amazing talent of author Julia Holden. Whereas the theme is a coming of age plot, Jane learns several lessons about fame, love, and responsibility. Fans who appreciate a deep but straightforward well written character study, must read the intelligent A DANGEROUS DRESS. --- Harriet Klausner
