Every Bride Needs a Groom by Janice Thompson (Review)
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?
This book starts a new series, Brides with Style, by Janice Thompson. This was a light fluffy predictable Christian chick lit romance book. It was a fast read and held my attention from the beginning. It was definitely over the top. It is set in a small town in Texas called Fairfield and part takes place in Dallas. It has all the crazy family members. The book is not really realistic but if you suspend belief its enjoyable. The supporting characters and her family were interesting. There was a side plot of what happened between her grandmother and Aunt Alva years ago. As is this author's style the chapter titles have special meaning. In this book they are based on of Loretta Lynn songs. So overall a quirky funny southern chick lit book. I enjoyed reading this book but it is not my favorite. Weddings by Bella is still my favorite series. If you enjoy this genre then you might like this book.
