A Brides with Style Novel
April 2015/368 pages/$13.99
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

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
If I want a book that will cheer me up and make me smile, I make sure that Janice Thompson is the author! She kicks off a new series with a fun story set in a small Texas town along the interstate between Houston and Dallas, and she has captured it perfectly. Although it's been a few years, I've been there many times and eaten at Sam's--thanks to this novel, I felt the years fall away! I loved Katie and her family. Katie's dilemma is simultaneously amusing and embarrassing! Once again, Thompson has created a wonderfully eclectic yet authentic set of characters for this tale. A couple of folks from her previous series either pop in or are mentioned, making the story that much more enjoyable. The tension between the small-town and the big city are well portrayed, with the positives and negatives of both equally noted by various characters. And the decades-long stand-off between Katie's grandmother and great-aunt was perfectly depicted and such a reminder of how much time is lost in relationships that fracture over misunderstandings. Janice Thompson remains on my list of favorites for light-hearted reads with a subtle faith message. Grab your copy of Every Bride Needs a Groom today!
