Nancy loved going to parties and planning events. She spent a year planning her own wedding, about which many were still talking. So she decided to start her own business, Froth, an event planning company. After an argument with Todd,
Nancy decides to move temporarily into the family apartment to start up her new business. Todd even offers to pay for an assistant for her. After interviewing three potential assistants,
Nancy decides to hire Derek, a hunky gay Englishman, who dresses perfectly. Not long after getting her business underway, her cousin Birdie stops by. While Nancy is out of the room, Birdie takes off, leaving her four-year-old daughter Eugenia behind, as well as her daughter’s suitcase.
Nancy tries to reach her, to no avail. Frantic,
Nancy calls around; she has never been around children before. After a few days, things calm down and desire grows between Nancy and Derek. However, if she gives in to her feelings and has an intimate relationship with him, her pre-nup will give Todd half of everything she owns. Soon Nancy, Derek and Eugenia seem more like a family and
Nancy is happier than she has ever been. However, things begin to unravel when
Nancy makes some discoveries about her little family.
NANCY’S THEORY OF STYLE is a witty, emotion-packed contemporary romance novel, which will leave you longing for the story to go on. I loved this story. Throughout the book,
Nancy constantly adds fashionable sayings to her notebook, titled Theory of Style. Though the ending is wonderful, readers will wish to read more about this quirky society woman. She starts out with wanting everything perfect around her and by the end of the book, she makes a wonderful discovery; there are things she never thought she wanted, but she finds she can’t live without them and no money is involved. Watching
Nancy evolve through her interactions with those around her and her new experiences is a delight. Full of well-drawn charismatic characters, wit, a delightful plot and imagination, this book is a winner. I look forward to reading more of debut author Grace Coopersmith’s works. I highly recommend
NANCY’S THEORY OF STYLE to anyone looking for a great read.
