Four years after her life-changing summer, Gigi Goldstein thinks saying goodbye to Camp Chinooka means saying hello to a brand new life. Now faced with a second chance at her career, she is filled with more hope than she’s felt in a long time. Her design house is taking the fashion world by storm, even attracting notice of Victoria Ellicott, the fashionable British socialite who just happens to be engaged to the future king of England. When Gigi is chosen to design the royal wedding dress in London, she is forced to confront her ex-fiancé, Perry Gillman, now a successful composer with a hit show on the West End.
But when Gigi learns Perry’s been dating Victoria’s sister, who rivals her in looks, style and sophistication, Gigi can’t help but feel inadequate in everything. Her world begins to crumble as she develops a creative block so debilitating, she fears that a wedding dress of royal proportions is never going to happen. Even a budding relationship with the handsome, wealthy, and rich Viscount of Satterley can’t make her forget about Perry and her inability to get over him. As the world gears up for the wedding of the century, Gigi is on the brink of buckling under the immense pressure of the uncertainties of her future and failures of her past.
Will she be able overcome her creative paralysis to design the dress of Victoria’s dreams, or will she break down now that she has even s’more to lose?
S'more to Lose is the follow up instalment to One S'more Summer. Four years have passed since that summer at Camp Chinooka. Gigi was in a relationship with Perry but they haha since split up.
Gigi's label G.Malone was in the running to design the wedding dress of the century for the future queen of England and that's where her path crossed once again with Perry. Gigi found it really difficult to bump into Perry all the time while maintaining her professionalism and she suffered a design block.
At the same time Gigi met someone new, but she's not sure if she's really over Perry or whether it was just a rebound.
I really enjoyed the scenes where the various dresses were designed and getting an insight into the many stages of the wedding of the century. I'll definitely continue reading the rest of this series by Beth Merlin.
