However, I did not really like the plot at all. Emi broke off her engagement to Jack days before her wedding because she thought he cheated on her. And even though they were so in love, it took TWO YEARS to fix? And only because her twin brother is marrying his sister and they are forced together at the wedding. I just can't... It made me actually really sad.
The fact that Jack is also engaged to Emi's nemesis. I just don't get that. Even when it is explained why and how, for me this ruined so much.
Yes, the ending was lovely but the pain and suffering both went through... Emi and Jack both were great characters and I wish their story had played out differently and in a shorter timeframe. And especially without the OW drama.
Now she has to go back for the wedding of her brother, to the sister of her ex-fiancé. She’s not as indifferent to Jack as she would like to be after two years. But with enough alcohol, the support of her best friend, and the help of a good-looking bar owner, she might get through the next week. She has to go through every humiliation you can think of, but she does it well. She has to deal with Jack’s sister and mother who love her, having known her for so long, but love Jack as well. It was hard sometimes, to tell if they were on Emi’s side or not, but I guess that made the story a little more real, because people can be confusingly nice and annoying at the same time.
Humorous and touching, I’m so glad I finally read this book which had been sitting in my Kindle for a month.
If I have to compare this author with others, I must say Aimee is a mix between Sophie Kinsella and Julie James (who, btw, is one of my favorite romance writers), because as those authors she can create characters you feel related to, wich stories make you laught and swoon, and have a good time, but also feel the characters pain/struggle, cry with them, feel them as your friends... and then laught again.
The narrative rythim was insane. Chapter after chapter you know more about Emi's past, but also live with her every struggle before her Hanna's wedding. Once you start reading you can stop. I read the book twice before this day, and I'm pretty sure I'll be reading it again because it's THAT good. The descriptive level was wonderful, how the author pictured the places, the people and the situations make you feel as if you are there with the characters.
I really enjoyed Emi's friendship with Lily and Hannah, her relationship with her twin brother Evan and how she reacted when she saw Jack for the very first time after two years. I loved how the feelings she had deep inside her fought to reach the surface again. I liked Liam too... and how he conect with Emi. His rol in the story was pretty cool. Jack was amazing every moment, I get why he was the way he was.
What I didn't like, was Greta (THAT BITCH!!). In fact, I hate that girl. She's bad! like really really bad person. She's self centered, selfish, envious... she's all that you don't need near you. But she's part of the wedding party and she has something that once was Emi's.
As wedding's day get closer, things start to get weird but fun. There's a drunk Emi having bad luck, some "beauty accidents" and strong revelations. Get ready for the ride!
Little Gray Dress is a fun, sweet and romantic story that celebrates friendship and love, but also has many emotional moments, intrigue and secrets to be discovered. It's a short story so you can read it pretty quick, but also it's so amazing you will want to read it again and again (like myself). If you're looking for a new book, try this one.
For a first book I feel the authoress excelled in her talent.
Would love to see this one as a movie on the Hallmark Channel.

Characters were not likeable and the story just kept going back and repeating itself way too long. If it had been shorter, it possibly could have been better.Read more
