  • Katie Fisher is ecstatic. Pro basketball star Brady James has proposed, and she can't wait to start planning their life together. She's confident she'll make it down the aisle this time--but it still may be easier said than done. A high-society Houston bride has Katie and the Cosmopolitan Bridal team scrambling to get the perfect dress done in time for her spectacular wedding. Meanwhile, Katie finds herself bombarded with everyone's competing visions regarding her own special day--and she's beginning to worry that her own ideas will get lost in the crossfire. Will she ever manage to settle all of the details for her perfect day? Or will bridal shop chaos and overzealous friends and family make a mess of everything?

    Fan favorite Janice Thompson gives readers what they've been clamoring for: another funny, romantic romp with a Texas twang.

    My Review:

    This was a fun Christian chick lit book. It is third in the Brides with Style series. The plot is continuous throughout the series with Katie and Brady being the main characters so I recommend reading them in order. You will enjoy this book more. Poor Katie just wants to marry her sweetheart, Brady. Unfortunately when you get married everyone has an opinion on what your wedding should be like. Her well meaning people include the people she works with at the Bridal shop, her church family, her family, and her future mother in law. The secondary characters are hilarious. The author really developed the personalities of them. The backbone of the story is Katie and Brady. They are both down to earth people even with Brady being a famous pro basketball player. Katie is a small town girl who moved to Dallas, the big city, to work.  There are many laugh out loud moments in the book. The spiritual element is there and developed even with the book being mostly light hearted. I enjoyed reading it. Recommended.
