"Every Bride Needs a Groom" is Book one of the “Brides With Style” novel series by Janice Thompson.
From the first Southern chapter with things like Peach Queen, sweet tea, buffets, Dairy Queen dates, WOP=pers (you’ll have to read the book to find out what they are) small towns and more, I thought I was in Georgia instead of Texas. Now I know they are pretty Southern out there or “over yonder” as my granny might say.
Names like Jasper, Beau, Dewey, Lori-Lou, Queenie, Aunt Alva, Gilly, Madge had me LOL or laughing out loud and yes, smiling, as I thought I was watching a rerun of Hee-Haw in my head. So many other reviewers have touched on the essay contest, breakup, Bridal Store, football hero who turns out to be the perfect Christian example of manliness for Katie, that I won’t go there. Except to say it was a very engaging story and makes me want to read more in the future. Especially when I take my annual “fiction vacations” in the summer when I’ll reread this.
The only thing that seems a bit off was the cover picture as it wasn’t what I would’ve thought a Loretta Lynn wedding gown would look like as described in the book. But it did look a lot like the gown I bought my daughter Amber, who already had a groom by the way. I’ll give it five stars and look forward to reading more from Janet Thompson.
Thanks to Revell for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
