je suis tombée sur cette romance de Caroline Linden en stand-alone, avant de découvrir qu'elle fait parti d'un recueil autour de la boutique de Madame Folette.... donc je l'ai lu, et finalement j'ai aussi pris le recueil ^^

Donc ici on suit Felicity Dawkins, l'actuelle artiste derrière les robes de Madame Folette (boutique appartenant à sa mère qui en est toujours la propriétaire). Felicity a repris la boutique en main et tente de lui faire remonter la pente, en modernisant le style, chose que sa

A Fashionable Affair was pure joy and delight from start to finish. Caroline Linden continues to prove that you can’t always take first impressions to heart, as the first book I read by her very nearly put me off to her writing forever. Thank god that didn’t happen. In this latest novella, the pairing of a savvy businesswoman and a persistent lord trying to purchase her dress shop proved to be quite the potent mix. Evan and Felicity’s battle of wills and clashing of minds soon gave way to unexpe ...more

"Love is never out of fashion."

When her stubborn mama refuse to change her way of thinking about the future of the store who's not going well, Felicity convince her, with her brother's help, to take an extended holiday so the daughter can take charge of the business.

But then she learn that the Earl of Carmarthen has been trying to talk her mother into selling

This book was good, until it just kinda abruptly ended. One minute they were fighting over the space, then they were getting married. I was like whhhhaaaatttt.... yes there was more in between but not too much it felt like.

When Fashions and Times Change – 3.5 stars

Evan Hewes, the Earl of Carmarthen, is knocked sideways by the beauty of a seamstress when he visits the modiste to try and persuade her to sell. He has plans to tear down the whole street and modernise it with gas lighting and modern sewage systems, but his solicitor has been unable to convince the owner to sell. The Earl is taken aback when he finds that the “seamstress” is the owner, or rather, the daughter of the owner, and is the person he has to co
