Review: Every Bride Needs a Groom by Janice Thompson



About the book:
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:

Every Bride Needs a Groom is the first book in Janice Thompson's new series, "Brides With Style", and a good read if you're looking for a light, chick-lit story with some humor. I felt like the first half of the book moved slowly and it didn't grab my attention...but I really started to enjoy the book towards the end.

For the most part I liked the characters, although there were times things they said/did rubbed me the wrong way. I thought the ending was cute and not what you expect when starting Every Bride Needs a Groom.


All in all, a nice read. I liked the story.
