I enjoyed most of this book but........ It irks me when I read "Impossible to do.." moments in an otherwise good book.
Eg : (Without revealing too much of the story)
The "Seamstress" and a gentleman fly from Paris to New York in a Seaplane (circa early 1940's) and stand together at a window looking out... for TWO HOURS !
The Seamstress has an order to make 1,000 or more outfits in a couple of weeks! OK..she does employ two other ladies to help! but I can sew and know that would be totally impossible. On old fashioned sewing machines for a start ...come on now!
Also the "Seamstress" had a favourite exotic gold dress that she whipped out of her handbag at the oddest times ...how do you even fit any dress into a handbag and always have it on hand?? It was wartime as well. If Natasha Lester's editor had gone through this book with a big red pen....then it would have been a good read.
