I have been following the story of Philippa and Dash since they were introduced in This Rake of Mine, so I believe my expectations were pretty high. I have to say I was a little disappointed in Memoirs of a Scandalous Red Dress.
This story takes place 20 some years after Confessions of a Little Black Gown and its cliffhanger ending. There are two love stories in this book, one told through flashbacks of when Dash and Philippa were young. The young flashbacks fill in the blanks from the other books. The other love story is the reunion between Dash and Philippa, and this is the weak part of the story. I love older characters in books and think there should be more of them, however, there didn’t seem to be any chemistry between the older Dash and Philippa.
Philippa’s life has been fairly easy, while Dash has turned into a mean drunk. Without giving too much away, I don’t think that the loose ends were tied very well in this story.
So, the flashbacks are good, the reunion is lackluster and there is a little bit of another cliffhanger at the end of the book.
