"Every Girl Gets Confused" by Janice Thompson

About this book:

  “Katie Fisher and Brady James may be a match made in heaven, but that doesn't seem to guarantee them a happily ever after accompanied by angelic choirs. In fact, the sounds being heard at the bridal shop where she works are on the contentious side lately, as a bride- and groom-to-be try to mediate the growing rivalry between their basketball-obsessed families in the middle of play-off season. On top of that, Katie's parents are nagging her to get out of Dallas and come home to tiny Fairfield where her former boyfriend Carson is waiting for her, ready to rekindle their relationship. Oy vey! What's a girl to do? And will she ever be able to wear that gorgeous wedding dress she won?
  The breezy fun continues as Janice Thompson throws everyone's favorite small-town girl into big-city bridal chaos--and makes her choose between the love she thought she lost and the love she stumbled upon in the aftermath.”

My personal Rating-

I’m grinning from ear to ear, I so enjoy Miss Janice’s books. With this one, however, while I still enjoyed it, it felt that there was a bit more sexual hints & mentions then the previous book in the series. Still much cleaner than other books I’ve reviewed and still as hilarious as her other books, though. Fantastic Spiritual Content, which is refreshing. :) Janice Thompson makes the characters come alive on the pages. I really do enjoy her books. Hey, Revell! Do me a huge favor and publish more books by this wonderful lady, alright? Please and Thank you! ;)

See y’all on Wednesday with a new review!

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
*I received this book for free from the Publisher (Revell Publishers) for this honest review.
