I’ve just recently started reading some of Janie Thompson’s books, so I was really excited when I saw her new book Every Bride Needs a Groom. This story was a cute, quick read about Katie Fisher. She lives in a small town in Texas and has always dreamed of and planned her perfect wedding. She cannot pass up the chance to win the wedding dress of her dreams, even though she and her boyfriend are not engaged. She is sure that he will be proposing to her at some point in the near future. When Katie wins the contest and the dress, it doesn’t exactly work out how she planned. Her boyfriend dumped her and is moving to another state! Now, in order to claim the dress, Katie must face the dress designer, and her son who owns the bridal boutique, the handsome basketball player named Brady. She really questions if she should get the dress or not, as she feels like she is being deceitful toward Brady and his mother, since she does not have a fiancé.
I liked all of these characters, and I felt like Katie could be someone I know personally. She was funny and seemed to be like people I know in real life who are always planning their weddings, no matter how far off they may be. I cannot wait to read the future books in this series, and I am excited to share this series with my sister, who loves anything and everything that has to do with weddings!!
