Roma E Black’s first book, The Fashion Intruder is the perfect summer read to stash it in your beach bag or carry on. It’s an entertaining story that intertwines fashion, relationships, tech, mystery and taking a chance on a dream.
The main character Sofia Ricci has fashion in her blood. This passion for style was instilled in her as a young girl by her late grandmother. She has chosen a secure career in law, but isn’t fulfilled. When faced with a choice to leave behind her career and pursue a new innovative business in fashion, she listens to her heart.
Set in the glamorous cities of Paris, Rome and Milan, the reader gets a front row seat to real time fashion shows with Kendall and Gigi. We also meet a number of other characters in her life from Sal the ballet dancer who is in a “it’s complicated” relationship with Sofia, to another possible love interest, the pro football player and model, Gaspar.
We are taken along on the bumpy ride as Sofia starts an online fashion mecca and of course, drama ensues.
