Jenny Fortune was desperate.Just because of a little "bad luck" associated with one of her finest creations, she was losing her customers in droves. Widower Trace McBride seemed to be her only solution. He had three hellion daughters in need of a woman's touch. And since wearing the gown at her own wedding seemed the best way to turn her luck around, Jenny was determined to convince Trace that they would make the perfect match. If only things had turned out to be that simple!

Original (and interesting!) plot, good dialogue, and a truly quirky villain made this an appealing read for me. In 1879 Jenny Fortune has set up an up and coming dress shop. Her dresses are selling well until a bridal gown that she has made acquires the reputation for bringing bad luck to its wearers. Her landlord, Trace McBride, lives in an apartment above her with his three motherless daughters. As Jenny begins to lose customers and can't pay her rent, he offers her a job as housekeeper and surrogate mother for his girls. Her mother sweeps into town with a better idea. Marry someone while wearing the gown herself and turn it into a 'good luck' wedding gown. When Trace meets the future bridegroom, he reconsiders his plan to never marry.

There are several mysteries going on in this book and more than one villain. The drama is offset by a lot of humor. Although I really liked the H and h, the real stars are the hero's three young daughters who are referred to by the townspeople as the 'McBride Menaces.' Some of their antics are side-splitting funny. I hope to read more of these girls in later books.

For those interested: Language (f-bombs) may offend some readers. Sexual situations (after marriage only) are fairly frequent in the last half of the book, although not overly descriptive, and some readers may find them offensive
I really wanted to like this book as I have liked every other book that EM has written. Since I live close to Fort Worth, the setting was especially interesting to me; however, I was so glad that this book FINALLY ended. It just seemed to go on and on and on. To me, the characters were cardboard-like and I felt like I was reading 4 or 5 episodes in a sitcom.
The bedroom door is definitely open in this book which could have been handled differently.

I will be deleting this book and do not plan on reading another one in this series.
Historical romance with a bit of a mystery twist in the wild West.
Highly entertaining novel with the perfect amount of spice scattered through it.

Jenny Fortune, independent and creative is building a life for herself in a small town in Texas as a dressmaker. Everything is going splendidly until a couple of brides have accidents after wearing one of her creations. Their superstitious father blames the dressmaker and he is supported by the town's gossip and another dressmaker.
Her landlord, the honky Mr McBride, and his three menacing daughters offer her a position as the girls "mother" to aid her with her failing business.
McBride has is own demons haunting him though and will Jenny eventually trade security but a loveless marriage against her independence?
You'll have to read to find out...

Heartily recommend this book.
This was a very good book. I will state that this is not a Clean sexual book - there are 2 pretty explicit sexual scenes (married couple) which I simply scanned over to get to the end. Both are closer to the end.
At first I thought I had read this before (I think I read something a little similar but was a short modern story) - but I am so glad I kept reading this.
This is a Historical romance yet so much is going on - adventure, danger, regrets, memories etc. that keeps you interested.
But there is also a very superstitious man who blames the accidents his daughters have had on the seamstress who made the wedding dress - which he calls the Bad Luck Wedding Dress. - This book also shows the dangers of not only superstition but gossip and greed. (Something a lot of people need to think about when they gossip!)
The Bad Luck Wedding Dress is a sweet historical (western) romance about Trace McBride, a single father of three rebellious young daughters who love to act out, and the young and independent dressmaker Jenny Fortune. The three daughters have set their mind on having Jenny as their mother, and will do anything to make it happen. Trace's previous marriage was a disaster, and he doesn't want to remarry again. Jenny, in the first hand doesn't want to marry either, but she is attracted to Trace.

It was fun seeing Trace struggle with his attraction to Jenny, and I loved seeing how Jenny tempted him. Trace had a hard time containing his jealousy. I was invested in the characters and was looking forward to seeing what would happen next. This book was a fun read, but there were also a couple of suspenseful scenes that fit the story perfectly. I loved seeing the relationship between Trace and Jenny develop. I can't wait to read the three daughters' books.
I really enjoyed reading The Bad Luck Wedding Dress. It had lots of twists and turns in the plot, and I really liked the characters. The seamstress, Jenny Fortune, or MissFortune as the Menaces like to call her, owns Fortune's Designs in Fort Worth, Texas. The year is 1879. She's renting the ground floor of the 3 story building where Trace McBride, single father of the Menaces, and his 3 daughters live. The daughters have grown very attached to Miss Fortune as she has to them. Trace owns a bar in Hell's Half Acre area in Fort Worth, and counts on multiple housekeepers to keep track of his girls, however they keep getting into trouble and the housekeepers don't last more than a few days. Miss Fortune's once thriving business is struggling due to superstition regarding a wedding dress she made for one of Jack Bailey's daughters who later suffered an accident. When his second daughter wore the same dress and also had an accident, the rumors began, and Jenny's business suffered. What follows is the tale of development of a family with all the trials and pitfalls along the way. It was a fun read. I highly recommend.
This book was fantastic. It is the first book I have read by Emily March but it won't be the last.
The story was entertaining and the characters very believable.
Love that it was a stand alone.
