The Dream Dress: A Book Review

About The Book:

Big dreams take big leaps of faith . . . but what if you trip on the way?
A lowly seamstress at a swanky bridal boutique, Gabi Delgado dreams of doing more than ripping out seams and fitting dresses to doe-eyed brides. She wants to see her own original dress designs gracing the young women of Texas. But when Jordan Singer, reporter for Texas Bride magazine, visits the shop to do a feature, Gabi is humbled in his influential--and unnervingly handsome--presence. 

Convinced she'll never get her dreams off the ground now, Gabi needs lots of encouragement--especially from her friend Bella Neeley--to take a chance and start her business. And as she gets to know Jordan, she discovers that she may have to take a chance on love as well.

About The Author:

Janice Thompson is a seasoned romance author and screenwriter. An expert at pulling the humor from the situations we get ourselves into, Thompson offers an inside look at the wedding business, drawing on her own experiences as a wedding planner. She is the author of the Weddings by Bella series and the Backstage Pass series, as well as Picture Perfect and The Icing on the Cake. She lives in Texas. Visit for more.

My Review:

Reading Janice Thompson's book always make me laugh, smile, and allow me to live vicariously through her super fantastic characters! I have had the pleasure to read The Weddings by Bella series and Backstage Pass series both and they were fantastic. Weddings by Design is the third wedding themed series from the author, and The Dream Dress is book three in the series. 

The Dream Dress is a fantastic combination of new characters and favorites from both Weddings by Bella and Backstage Pass series. And although there are previous characters in this book, do not be concerned you will be lost. There is no need to have read the previous books to understand these adorable and fun-loving characters, although after reading The Dream Dress you will be reading them I am certain! It is a clean, fun and quick (i read it in about three hours!)  read with many funny interactions and I felt like I was part of each scene as I read. The previous books in this series are Picture Perfect and Icing on the Cake. Book Four: Bouquet of Love is coming soon (I can't wait!). Also, though part of a series, The Dream Dress is a great stand-alone novel as well!

The story line is fun, not serious and takes you into the world of wedding planning and design. There is a little bit of everyone for all who read it and I would say it is appropriate for teens and older!

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!

BUY IT: You can purchase The Dream Dress at your favorite book retailer from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group
