Every Bride Needs a Groom by Janice Thompson (Brides with Style Series #1)
Janice Thompson writes fun books that make you giggle, and this one is not an exception with the start of this new series. Katie loves working in her Dad's hardware store. She isn't quite your typical gal. However, she won the wedding dress of many girl's dreams and the cover debut of The Texas Bride magazine! That is kind of life changing don't you think? Especially since Katie planned to marry another one of her small town boys grown into a small town man. After all, that is why she entered to win this contest. One not so small issue. She wins, and he breaks up with her. She is literally ready to be all dressed up with no where to go. No isle to walk, no groom to marry. Could Brady, a ball player who is taking a break from it all be the one to make her dream wedding and life come true? Funny, cute, sassy and sweet this new series is starting off nicely. Carol :)
My copy came from Revell in exchange for my honest review and nothing more.
Somewhere in a sea of tulle and taffeta, satin and crepe, Katie Fisher needs to find a key ingredient of the perfect wedding--the groom. Small-town girl Katie Fisher is busy planning her fairy-tale wedding. Sure, her boyfriend hasn't managed to pop the question just yet, but that doesn't mean she shouldn't enter a contest in Texas Bride magazine to win the dress of her dreams, right? Anyway, she's sure he'll be getting down on one knee any time now. And a one-of-a-kind designer dress doesn't just fall out of the sky right when you need it. But when Katie's boyfriend takes a job in another town and breaks up with her--on the very same day she wins her dream dress--her world is turned upside down. Dare she go to Dallas to claim her prize? And will the hunky pro basketball player who runs the beyond-swanky bridal shop--yeah, you read that right--discover her humiliating secret if she does? "Every Bride Needs a Groom is one to savor over and over. This compelling tale keeps you hooked and ignites your heart.
