This HaBO comes from Elizabeth, who wants to find this older romance title:
This contemporary romance book starts with a seamstress working on a bride’s trousseau with the bride, and the bride expressed doubts about her upcoming marriage. The seamstress basically tells her it’s not too late to back out, then the bride leaves.
The next day, a furious man storms into her shop and says the bride has jilted him and that the seamstress will take her place. I can’t remember why this arrangement is made. The heroine (seamstress) is a thin brunette who is conveniently the same size as the original bride, and she wears all the clothes she made for the bride’s trousseau. For some reason, I think the hero was someone semi-famous or a known public figure, but I’m not sure. I think the heroine’s name might have been Teddy or Teddie, but I could be wrong.
I think this a Harlequin Presents. I remember the cover was white with the woman in a wedding dress standing with the guy. I read this book around 1997, but it was probably a few years old at that time.
The hero sounds kind of awful, right?
