Katie Fisher is certain her long-time boyfriend is going to propose soon, so she enters a contest in the Texas Bride magazine to win a designer dress of her dreams. But Katie’s life does not quiet go as planned: her boyfriend breaks up with her on the same day she finds out she won the dress. Disappointed, she travels to the big city of Dallas to awkwardly try to explain her situation and reject the dress, instead finding herself swept into the designer’s visions, realizing she does not have the heart to tell the woman she is no longer planning a wedding. And her life only gets more interesting when she meets the wedding shop’s manager, a tall and handsome pro basketball player. Her interactions with him and each kind member of the wedding staff only make it more and more difficult for Katie to admit her deepest secret – that she no longer has a groom.
This novel certainly has its share of spunky characters, each one adding a unique quality to the story. The relationships among their diverse personalities are fun to read and the spunky nature of the author’s storytelling makes this book enjoyable. However, the novel is very predictable and there are no real plot twists or intrigue that make the book impossible to put down. The romance is a bit unbelievable as well. Yet even with the limited complexity of the story, the novel is a fun, light-hearted read, suited for those who enjoy simple contemporary romances.
I received a copy of this book from Revell Publishing in exchange for an honest review.
