"An entertaining read in the best tradition of the historical novel...THE WARDROBE MISTRESS is intriguing and well researched, set during one of my favourite periods of history, the French Revolution.

"Revolutionary fervor, royal politics, and high fashion are stitched together like a couture ballgown in Meghan Masterson's THE WARDROBE MISTRESS...Giselle makes a smart, likable heroine, torn between her affection for the queen and her growing love for a firebrand suitor, and the revolution's relentless advance toward the guillotine made for breathless reading. A charming debut!" ―Kate Quinn, author of The Empress of Rome Saga and The Borgia Chronicles
“In THE WARDROBE MISTRESS, Masterson deftly captures the tumult of the French Revolution and the tragic unmaking of history’s most infamous queen―Marie Antoinette―through the eyes of clever and likable dressmaker Giselle Aubry...I grew impatient to return to the book each night. By turns sexy, absorbing, and suspenseful, this story sweeps you along to its riveting conclusion.”―Heather Webb, author of Becoming Josephine and Last Christmas in Paris
“A charming portrait of Marie Antoinette’s inner circle and the intimate connections between politics and fashion.” ―Jennifer Laam, author of The Secret Daughter of the Tsar

You will root for Giselle; you will applaud her; and you will also fear for her.” ―Sophie Perinot, author of Medici's Daughter
