EVERY BRIDE NEEDS A GROOM
When Katie Fisher enters a Bridal contest just before the midnight deadline, she never imagined she would win. After all, her long time boyfriend was going to pop the question any minute. He had disappeared on different days. They lived in Fairfield, Texas. It’s only a one hour and a half to Dallas. Had he ordered the ring and gone back to pick it up?
This small town girl working in her dad’s hardware store drove to Casey’s house to tell him about the contest but he had news too. He was moving to Oklahoma. He didn’t want a long distance relationship. She stormed out of his house.
Her grandmother, Queenie had sage advice. Throughout the book Loretta Lynn in Cold Miner’s Daughter is used as an analogy. Why can’t Queenie reach out to her sister, Alva?
Katie Fisher goes to Dallas to tell Nadia and Madge the truth. No engagement, no husband and no wedding dress designed for her. But that isn’t what happens. The person that helps her most is a Maverick’s basketball player named Brady James.
There is humor, secrets and hope in this book. Along with grace of God staying with Katie all along, she enters a fairy tale life. This is also a new series by Janice Thompson, A Brides with Style Novel. I bet you can’t put the book down until it’s finished.
