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?
My thoughts and giveaway:
I needed this book. It seems I have been reading a lot heavier stuff lately and sometimes you need a book that has fun characters, a crazy family, a cozy grandma and romance. That’s what I can always find in Janice’s books and her newest release did not disappoint.
As soon as I opened the pages to Every Bride Needs a Groom I was drawn into the life of Katie and her desire to be married. She was so set in her ideal and how things should happen. Nothing could sway her from how she thought her life should play out. Not even wise, sweet Queenie, her grandma.
But soon Katie finds out her life isn’t going the way she planned at all and she gets swept up in the contest she won. Now what? How will she get out of it? And what about this handsome basketball player hinted at in the back cover blurb? If he thinks she’s getting married how could anything happen between them?
All of these questions will be answered if you pick up this book. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed, I know I wasn’t 🙂
