I love weddings. Everything about weddings. I’ve been a wedding coordinator for years and I thought I had probably seen and/or heard it all until I read “Every Bride Needs a Groom.” Ms. Thompson has found a new twist from all the bridal/wedding stories on the bookshelves today. Her bride, Katie, actually has the wedding dress (and if it’s anything like the dress on the book cover, it’s stunning), but there is no groom to be found – anywhere. Well, almost anywhere.
Laced with humor throughout, this book was a delight to read. Ms. Thompson did an excellent job with all of the characters. I felt as if I were a member of the family, living in Fairfield, Texas. And what a fun way to incorporate country music than to name each chapter after a famous country music star’s songs. You’ll have to read the book to find out who that star is and if Katie ever finds her groom.
I was given a complimentary copy of this book by Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group. The opinions expressed in this review are mine alone.
