Thank you to TLC Book Tours and TNZ Fiction for the gifted copy.
Title: The Woman in the Green Dress
Author: Tea Cooper
Release Date: June 16th, 2020
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Synopsis:

After a whirlwind romance, London teashop waitress Fleur Richards can’t wait for her new husband, Hugh, to return from the Great War. But when word of his death arrives on Armistice Day, Fleur learns he has left her a sizable family fortune. Refusing to accept the inheritance, she heads to his beloved home country of Australia in search of the relatives who deserve it more.

In spite of her reluctance, she soon finds herself the sole owner of a remote farm and a dilapidated curio shop full of long-forgotten artifacts, remarkable preserved creatures, and a mystery that began more than sixty-five years ago. With the help of Kip, a repatriated soldier dealing with the sobering aftereffects of war, Fleur finds herself unable to resist pulling on the threads of the past. What she finds is a shocking story surrounding an opal and a woman in a green dress. . . a story that, nevertheless, offers hope and healing for the future.

This romantic mystery from award-winning Australian novelist Tea Cooper will keep readers guessing until the astonishing conclusion.

My Review:

The Woman in the Green Dress is a mysterious historical fiction set in Australia. Tea Cooper depicted Australia in a beautiful way. The book does take place in two different timelines, but it was very easy to follow.

The story takes place in both 1853 and 1918. Each focuses on women during those times and how they end up in the same Curio shop in Australia. Della is a taxidermist and has a family member running the curio shop. She begins to hear about some secrets and wrongdoings and meets a Captain who can help her find the truth. In 1918 we meet Fleur. This is set in the time of WWI and she received news that her husband has died in the war. She travels to Australia because it has something to do about her inheritance.

I really enjoyed the mystery of each women’s stories. Tea Cooper did a fantastic job of intertwining each of the time periods and made it that much more intriguing.

Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

I give The Woman in the Green Dress 4 stars. The imagery was amazing, the female characters were captivating, and the mystery made the book that much more charming. I think anyone who enjoys historical fiction will like this book.
