Jane loved her Grandmother. When her grandmother died Jane inherited a dress. It was dark blue, embroidered with millions of beads and beautiful. A dress that would stop crowds, but why did Jane's Grandmother have it sitting in an old suitcase with a menu for Le Tour d'Argent, a fancy restaurant in Paris?
When she's in college she finds that it's a Parisian dress from 1928 and considered a classic. So she bases a paper on it, calls it "A Dangerous Dress" and her lecturer likes it, enough to send it to an competition, where it wins 3rd place.
This leads Hollywood to her door and a chance to be involved in a film in Paris, which she embraces (even if she has to get an emergency passport!). She finds herself embroiled in adventures and love, as well as the mystery of why her grandmother had that dress. However she also finds herself embroidled in hate and some very low moments.
It's chicklit, it's a romance but it's fun. It's also written in the first person by a character who's a bit of an innocent abroad so those who dislike that will dislike the book, I enjoyed it and found it quite fun, if light.
