Black Rubber Dress is a little bit crime drama, a little bit "chick lit," and a whole lot of British humor. Lauren Henderson's writing is reminiscent of Nick Hornby ? if Hornby got a sex change and started writing mysteries. The main character, Sam Jones, is an artist with horrid taste in men and a way of being at the wrong place at the right time. This novel is very funny, and a great choice for those who want a more cheeky chick lit.
