Champagne Chic Lemonade Money by De-ann Black

Bee works as a dressmaker in a vintage fashion shop in Glasgow. Joyce, the owner of the shop, has hired Bee and another dressmaker, Alma, to help her repair, upscale and make vintage dresses, skirts, tops and other accessories. The dress shop also has a vintage haberdashery selling bargain fabrics, yarns, and sewing and knitting patterns.
When it comes to make do and mend, Bee, Joyce and Alma offer gorgeous vintage clothes, patterns and fabrics for bargain prices. The shop enables customers to look great for less - Champagne Chic for Lemonade Money.
As the demand for their beautiful vintage clothes and fabrics becomes increasingly popular will Bee make time for romance?
Gilles the handsome owner of the coffee shop next door who bakes traditional cakes, scones and bread, vies for Bee's affections against a mystery man who regularly goes past the vintage dress shop's front window.
In Bee's world of vintage dressmaking, patterns, fabrics, romance, knitting and sewing there's only one thing for sure - there's more than one way to stuff a robin.
From Goodreads.

This was not as good as the previous books I have read by De-ann Black. It was still cosy and a few people have quite interesting pasts. I also think it is the first book with a scary character and that might be what I didn't like.
