Every Bride Needs A Groom by Janice Thompson

Every Bride Needs a Groom by Janice Thompson

Small-town girl Katie Fisher is planning her 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? But when her boyfriend breaks up with her and takes a job in another town--the very same day Katie wins her dream dress--her world is turned upside down. Should she claim her prize? And will the hunky former pro-basketball player who runs the swanky Dallas bridal shop--yeah, you read that right--catch on to her humiliation if she does?

Janice Thompson designs a romance sure to delight, with plenty of fish-out-of-water moments, a hilarious supporting cast, and more of the wedding biz world her readers adore.

Janice Thompson is a seasoned romance author and screenwriter. An expert at pulling the humor from the situations we get ourselves into, Thompson offers an inside look at the wedding business, drawing on her own experiences as a wedding planner. She is the author of the hugely popular Weddings by Bella series and the Backstage Pass series, as well as Picture Perfect, The Icing on the Cake, and The Dream Dress. She lives in Texas.

Here's my review of this Sweet Love Story:

First, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Janice Thompson and her publisher for sending me a copy of "Every Bride Needs A Groom" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.

“Every Bride Needs a Groom” by Janice Thompson is a beautiful love story about a bride-to-be, Katie, who wins a wedding dress by a top-tier designer in a contest.  Brady James is the son of the dress designer who just happens to manage the dress shop while on medical leave from the NBA after a major knee injury.

This novella is humorous and lifelike and thickly slathered in faith as you’ve come to expect from Janice Thompson’s books.  Her characters, even the minor ones, are multi-dimensional and each is a welcome addition to my imagination.  At first, I was a bit put off by one character’s issues with other denominations of Christian churches, but even that topic had a purpose in this work.  This is an enjoyable book that I will recommend.
