Hello Treasures! Happy New Year to you all! I’ve missed sitting down and writing a post for you all. It’s been almost a month! This review goes up to be done by the due date. But I’m posting very soon after with an update. For now though, here is “The Dress Shop on King Street.”
Let me start by saying this story was not my favorite. It was mostly Meh.
Harper, the MC, was nothing special. She was so flat that it was almost painful. She had a dream. But that was all that made her part of the story. Her moods and ideas all seemed just kind bland and there because they had to be. Not because that’s what she had.
Millie was something special, if she had been executed a little bit better. She had a background, a secret, a life and she had emotions.
Peter was quirky, but I imagined him almost more like an old man in a lab coat thats bursting at the buttons. He and Harper had NO chemistry. It was all just kind forced to make a plotline of some kind.
As you probably guessed from the previous paragraphs, the plot wasn’t super solid. There was a line. But the buildup wavered ALL over the place. I feel like there were way too many tiny details that were not nessacary for the story. It was fast paced, but in a very muddy sort of useless way.
There wasn’t that much content. I mean all in all, it was a fine story. There wasn’t anything wrong with it, there was just nothing outstanding about it. I never even got myself to finish the ending, and I’m about 50 pages away. I just don’t WANT to.
The “romance” (could it even be called that?) between Harper and Peter felt forced, but I wanted to mention that it was there. I don’t know if they kissed or not in the last 50 pages, I didn’t finish it.
I was too bored to finish The Dress Shop on King Street. I appreciate that the author finished her book. That is a HUGE feat to accomplish. But I didn’t enjoy this story as much as I have other stories. Three stars.
Thank you Bethany house and Ashely Clark for getting me a copy of this book to check it out. A positive review was not required and all opinions are honest and my own words.
Be back soon! I have to tell you all about my holiday season and some crazy stuff changing in my life!
