5-STAR REVIEW: A DRESS THE COLOR OF THE MOON by Jennifer Irwin

About The Book

Dress Series: Book 2
Publication Date: October 30, 2021

Prudence Aldrich is a sex addict. Five weeks ago, she checked into the Serenity Hills rehab center to prevent that addiction from ruining every important relationship in her life. Now Prue must face the trail of destruction she left behind, including mending the broken bond with her teenage son, finalizing the divorce from her husband, Nick, and using a newly learned set of skills to ward off her insatiable cravings for male attention-a compulsion that puts her friendship with lifelong pal Lily to the test.

​Adding ever further complications to the hurdles in her path is the arrival into town of Alistair Prescott, her in-rehab romantic obsession, and the one person in the world most capable of throwing Prue off her recovery. Meanwhile, Serenity Hills counselor Mike Sullivan is undergoing a crisis of his own-one that will drive him to the rediscovery of a lifelong passion . . . and causing him to cross paths again with Prue, his former patient.

A Dress the Color of the Moon tracks the rocky and sometimes disastrous path to recovery-a recovery that will require Prudence and her friends to face down the demons of their pasts while learning to accept the fearful uncertainty that comes with living life on your own two feet.

The Review

Fresh out of rehab for sex addiction, Prudence Aldrich is ready to pick up the pieces of her life and move forward. However, that path turns out to have plenty of bumps. Author Jennifer Irwin delivers Prue’s recovery story in A Dress the Color of the Moon.

The first book in the series, A Dress the Color of the Sky, apparently ends as Prue enters rehab. Readers new to the series will have no trouble picking up the storyline with the sequel.

As the central character, Prue is a bit of a mess. She has acknowledged that her past behavior contributed to the demise of her relationships with others, but being out in the real world brings a new set of challenges. While illustrating the low points, the author demonstrates Prue’s willingness to change.

Prue’s struggle to confront her past, including a painful memory, unfolds throughout the story. At times raw and gritty, there’s also some humor incorporated. The supporting characters, especially Prue’s son, her best friend, and her therapist, help Prue understand that love takes time to grow.

A Dress the Color of the Moon, tells the story of a woman who is ready for a second chance after addiction brings her to her knees.

REVIEW AUTHOR

Amy Wilson
My name is Amy W., and I am a book addict. I will never forget the day I came home from junior high school to find my mom waiting for me with one of the Harlequin novels from my stash. As she was gearing up for the "you shouldn't be reading this" lecture, I told her the characters get married in the end. I'm just glad she didn't find the Bertrice Small book hidden in my closet. I have diverse reading tastes, evident by the wide array of genres on my Kindle. As I made the transition to an e-reader, I found myself worrying that something could happen to it. As a result, I am now the proud owner of four Kindles -- all different kinds, but plenty of back-ups! "Fifty Shades of Grey" gets high marks on my favorites list -- not for character development or dialogue (definitely not!), but because it blazed new ground for those of us who believe provocative fiction is more than just an explicit cover. Sylvia Day, Lexie Blake, and Kristin Hannah are some of my favorite authors. Speaking of diverse tastes, I also enjoy Dean Koontz, Iris Johansen, and J.A. Konrath. I’m always ready to discover new-to-me authors, especially when I toss in a palate cleanser that is much different than what I would normally read. Give me something with a well-defined storyline, add some suspense (or spice), and I am a happy reader. Give me a happily ever after, and I am downright giddy.
