I love the small town setting and the unique characters. As I was reading this book with its twists and turns, I was smiling and the storyline is a delight. The bride won her wedding dress but lost her groom. You never know what will happen next. Author Janice Thompson was excellent in writing a marvelous novel that not only captivated me, but was fun to read. Every Bride Needs a Groom is Book One in the Brides With Style series. I highly recommend reading this book and looking forward to Book Two in this series.
I received a complimentary copy from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. This review is one hundred percent my own opinion.
An Old Fashioned GirlMinnesotaAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5A funny story out of an embarrassing predicamentOctober 16, 2015An Old Fashioned GirlMinnesotaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Oh the horror--the embarrassment--the dread! I can only imagine that horrible, sinking, pit-of-the-stomach feeling of winning something so incredible as a multi-thousand dollar wedding dress, only to suddenly have no prospect of a groom. And to have to explain why you can't accept it? [shudder]. It is a situation I'm glad I should never have to face.
But the story is definitely focused on the humor of the situation, not the drama. And there certainly is humor!
I enjoyed the family dynamics, from the romantic (but a little crotchety) grandmother, to the overwhelmed mother-of-three cousin, to the three annoying brothers, to the estranged great-aunt, to the mother who's a little too protective of her full-grown babies . . . It makes for a humorous cast. But I liked Katie most of all, who tries to be honest about her situation and has trouble not letting everyone push her around. She's a great narrator, grasping the humor of the situation, but still honest with herself.
And to put a very masculine man in charge of a prestigious bridal shop--inspired. Just because a guy is good at sports doesn't mean he can't be good with brides too.
It's a cute story. I could almost see it ending there, if I didn't know there was a second book to the series.
Thank you Revell and NetGalley for providing an e-copy to review; I was not required to make the review positive, and all opinions are my own.

KatrinaWestern KyAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Brides With Style #1October 13, 2015KatrinaWestern KyAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a beautifully written story about dreams and unfortunately reality.
It is a book that will keep a smile on your face even after you finish the last word written. It is full of humor, love, heartbreak and trust.
Most all little girls not only plan, but dream of their weddings from an early age and Katie Fisher is no different. She's a 24 year old woman who has been planning her wedding since the age of 6. She works in her small town at the family owned hardware store.
When cousin LoriLou calls to tell her about the contest to win a wedding gown designed by Nadia James who owns Cosmopolitan Bridal in Dallas without much thought she sends her entry into the contest.
She's not engaged.
Of course she has been dating Casey Lawson for almost 8 years and has basically known him all her life so she knows it's just a matter of time before he proposes.
She won the contest.
On June 1st Madge Hamilton with Cosmopolitan calls to inform her she has won the contest. Now how to get Casey to pop the question.
Casey informs her that he feels his future is in Tulsa, Oklahoma working for Chesterfield Oil & Gas.
I could go on listing obstacles for Katie, but there would truly be too many. Katie decides that what's most important is that she is upfront and honest with Cosmopolitan and inform them that she is neither has a boyfriend or is engaged.
What a wonderful plot and one that will keep you turning the pages until the end. I loved Katie's character. At the beginning of the story she makes a gets caught up in the excitement of the contest, makes an assumption and ends making a bad decision. I like how she takes responsibility for her mistake and tries to make amends.
This is a wonderful romance interlaced with lots of humor. It's a delicious tale as characters find things more complicated than they ever imagined. It's vastly entertaining. It's definitely a clean, feel good romance that I would recommend to anyone.
