Every Bride Needs a Groom {book review}

Every Bride Needs a Groom book review


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?

Every Bride Needs a Groom is one to savor over and over. This compelling tale keeps you hooked and ignites your heart. What an intriguing way to visit the culture of a small central Texas town.”–Eleanor Clark, award-winning author; motivational speaker; and Fairfield, Texas, resident

“Thompson launches a new bridal series with a contemporary, joyful Cinderella story that is filled with good humor and old-fashioned Southern style. Readers will fall in love with Katie and the rest of the well-drawn Fisher clan. This swoon-worthy tale will appeal to aficionados of humorous romances by Rachel Hauck and Lisa Wingate.”–Library Journal

My thoughts:

I love a good romance read but this one was especially good.  I mean what could be better than a girl who assumes her boyfriend is going to propose so she enters a contest to win a wedding dress of her dreams.  Especially when said boyfriend actually puts their relationship on the outs when he moves away?  

This book is so fun to read and had me laughing so much.  I loved the little fued between Katie’s grandma and her sister.  Who would have thought two sisters could fight for that many years over a man?  Wow.  And then there is the hunk of an athlete that is running a dress shop for his mother.  The same hunk that Katie keeps finding herself with, who also thinks she’s engaged!

This book read very quickly for me.  I was engrossed.  I wanted to know what happened to Katie. (personally I related to her cousin a little too much, hello morning sickness you stink).  I wanted to know if she’d end up with the hunk or back with her old boyfriend.  I wanted to know if she’d go back to her small town or grow wings of her own and spread them to the city.  But most of all I wanted to know if she’d tell everyone the truth about her missing fiance, mainly that he didn’t exist.

You’re going to want to read this book.  I’m going to want to look for more books by this author as she is a delight to read.  Make sure you come back and tell me what you thought of the book too!
