Must Love Fashion is the first novel in the Darling Cove series by Deborah Garland. This is my first novel by this author.
Gwen Mallory has a lot going on with her applying to Must Love Fashion ad. Her dream comes true when she begins working for Prada. She is also in the process of a divorce and with her mother fighting cancer, she get regular mammograms. When a lump is found, Gwen has another one.
Former model Andrew Morgan is not the Manager for Prada and still grieving his wife who passed from cancer a few years before. Meeting Gwen, the new PR, was not the best meeting. He is angry and very rude to Gwen but is there a chance that this may help Andrew move forward?
When the two have to go on trip together, will the sexual tension finally have an outlet or will the two deny their growing feelings?
I really enjoyed this novel. Gwen was someone I would relate and felt she was a strong character. Not only with putting up with Andrew’s rudeness but with starting over and finding a new job in the midst of a divorce. I also felt for Andrew who was shell of his former shelf was fighting his feeling for Gwen because of his grieving and feelings for this late wife. I enjoy that conflict because I know a lot of people struggle to move on when losing a spouse and often feel guilty when they start to fall in love with someone new.
This was a very enjoyable novel that made me laugh and smile as I read. I highly recommend for anyone looking for a cute and relatable romance.
