Dream Dress Book Review


About the Book
A 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 dress designs gracing the young women of Texas. When Jordan Spencer, the editor of Texas Bride magazine visits the shop to do a feature, Gabi is devastated to lose her job in his very influential 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. Could it be that she'll have to design her own wedding dress soon?(Goodreads)

 My Review

Typically these types of present day love stories are not books that I select to read. What makes these books special is the author. Janice Thompson has such a fun way of writing that I really just enjoy her books to no end. Each book has fun titles and quotes that relate with the story and the characters really come alive. This book, while not her very best, is still very good with solid characters. Gabi is a seamstress but on the side designs beautiful wedding gowns. I thought it was a unique perspective on the life of a designer who is trying to prove that she is creative. Of course there is a predictable love story full of humor and random incidents throughout the book. I also really enjoyed the secondary characters they really help Gabi in her situation and show her that God is someone that needs to be in her life. 
Overall this is a short fun read with a Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers flare.
I rate four stars.

"I received this book from Revell for free in exchange for an honest review."
