What it’s about:
From the publisher:
“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?”
I enjoy Janice Thompson’s style of writing and fun, quirky sense of humor so I was excited to read this book for review. Every Bride Needs A Groom is the first book in a new series. I love the title of this, it shows the type of humor that the book contains. I did feel the first half of the book was a bit slow. It was still easy to read with this author’s easy writing/reading style, but I was really happy when it picked up about half-way through and I thoroughly enjoyed the rest of the book until the ending. There are a lot of characters to keep track of, but each with their own strong personalities, that it was pretty easy to do. After reading some heavy-hitting books, this book was a nice little “vacation for my mind” type of book that was a fun little getaway.
I give Every Bride Needs A Groom 4 out of 5 stars. I recommend this book, especially to those who are looking for a fun, light read.
I received this book in exchange for my honest review.
