In A Very Good Life, Book 1 in the Dana McGarry Series, we are introduced to Dana McGarry, a young woman who reinvents herself in the 1970s world of fashion. But like the elegant and conservative store that employs her, Dana is caught between two eras - professionally and romantically - and must chose between playing by the rules and being a maverick. #Books #DanaMcGarrySeries #womensfiction

From Book 1...“Wills!” Dana called. “Come back! Please!” She took the end of the leash and noticed that the metal clasp was worn. The spaniel sprinted on its short legs, its wide furry ears flapping against its head as it enjoyed newfound freedom on the crowded sidewalk of Park Avenue. “Wills!” Dana cried. “Someone stop him!” In the distance, Dana could see Wills fast approaching the busy traffic at the corner of 37th Street and Park. #DanaMcGarrySeries #womensfiction #books Reading Groups, Chapter One, Short Legs, Park Avenue, Book 1, Distance, Life Is Good, Ears, Backdrops
