Katie Fisher is ecstatic. Pro basketball star Brady James has proposed, and she can’t wait to start planning their life together. She’s confident she’ll make it down the aisle this time– but it still may be easier said than done. A high-society Houston bride has Katie and the Cosmopolitan Bridal team scrambling to get the perfect dress done in time for her spectacular wedding. Meanwhile, Katie finds herself bombarded with everyone’s competing visions regarding her own special day– and she’s beginning to worry that her own ideas will get lost in the crossfire. Will she ever manage to settle all of the details for her perfect day? Or will bridal shop chaos and overzealous friends and family make a mess of everything? Fan favorite Janice Thompson gives readers what they’ve been clamoring for: another funny, romantic romp with a Texas twang.
PRAISE FOR THE BRIDES WITH STYLE SERIES:
“Readers will fall in love with Katie.”–Library Journal
“A feel-good romantic comedy of subverted expectations. . . . Readers will laugh and sigh along with Katie as she comes into her own, discovering a life and love beyond her dreams.”–Booklist
“Romantic comedy at its best. I highly recommend it!”–Cara Putman, award-winning author of Shadowed by Grace and Where Treetops Glisten
“A delightful mix of romance, inspiration, and humor.”–Judy Christie, author of Wreath, A Girl in the Wreath Willis series
Every Bride Has Her Day is the third addition to the series. While I didn’t read the first two, it was still fairly easy to jump right into the rambunctious mood of Katie’s life. This book is so quirky and down to earth. I throughly enjoyed it. Katie’s excitement shines through when her boyfriend Brady proposes to her. It isn’t long, though, before everyone in her life suddenly has an opinion and wants to ‘help’ her plan the wedding. I honestly had flashbacks of my own family drama when reading Katie’s struggles with taking control of her own wedding. I too have been experiencing wedding roulette and it made it all the more hilarious and easy to connect to these characters. A big family with even bigger opinions can be difficult, but in the end they have big hearts that only want a happy ending.
I loved Katie’s relationship with Brady and their strength in each other. In fact, all of the couples in this book had their own uniquely wonderful and strong relationships and it was refreshing to read a romance book with conflict between something other than the couples.
I loved the moments where Texas truly shined through this book. Having lived in different parts of Texas, it was really easy to fall into the style and laugh at the Texan quirks of the book. I rated this book so well because I genuinely laughed out loud at parts. Any book that has me smiling and reading pages at lightning speed will definitely get top marks.
