Booklist Review: "This quirky peek into the lives of four Australian women as they sell women's clothing at Goode's Department store is predictable, but sweet. Patty, the unhappily married middle-aged veteran of Goode's, experiences a twist in her personal life that makes focusing at work more difficult, while Fay dreams of Mr. Right as she wastes time with Misters Wrong. Worldly and glamorous Magda enjoys the finer things in life with her husband and traveler friends as she peddles the high-end gowns. Then Lisa arrives, who is young and bright like a penny waiting to be lucky as she takes all opportunities that come her way. Funny and light, this story moves quickly as each character navigates the 1950s-era challenges of being a working woman in a male-dominated society with limited options for the happily ever after they all strive for. The dialogue is snappy and full of vintage Australian terms, such as the practice of sizing clothes using an alpha system. Perfect for lovers of chick lit with a dash of romance and historical fiction for good measure.--Monica Garza Bustillo Copyright 2020 Booklist"
