The Paris Seamstress by Natasha Lester
This is about a young dressmaker who flees from France to America when the Nazis invade the country in World War II. She was a spy in the couturier houses in Paris. In other words, she copied the cut of the new styles and sent them to America for them to copy. She arrives in America and comes across an American lady who looks exactly like her, who could be her twin sister. Her name is Estelle, who became the head of a dress designer for Americans to wear that did not cost an arm and a leg. It is really a romantic mystery that you will not want to put down until the end.
