The Dream Dress by Janice Hanna Thompson ~ Revell Blog Tour & Review

The Dream Dress (Weddings by Design #3)

Lucie's Review:

 A lively adventure and look into the wedding business.

Gabi Delgadi has always admired Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, but she believes that Fred didn't appreciate Ginger as much as he should have, in fact Gabi has a pretty low opinion of men in general. Gabi is a gifted bridal dress designer, who's dream is to see her dresses gracing the women of Texas on their special day.
Enter Jordan Singer, reporter for Texas Bride Magazine, and witness to the "flying éclair disaster" that cost Gabi her job.
Can dreams still come true, even when everything seems to be falling apart?

Jordan was a great hero, with a commitment to telling the truth. He appreciates his family and wants to be a good father, I loved how he always was gracious and kind even when Gabi's grandma called him by accident, which was one of my favorite scenes.

The humor was one of my favorite parts about this book, as well as the cast of characters and the deepening friendships between the group of ladies from the previous books. There was a lot of good relationships between the characters, and Gabi's journey to faith was an integral part of the book. I loved how supportive her friends were, and how they respected her need to take time to understand and accept.

Overall this was a fantastic read, I loved how the author brought this book to life by including details about sewing. I especially loved Mimi Carmen, I could totally relate to her concern for her 1967 singer, as I learned to sew on a small black signer with a wheel and treadle that you had to pump! A fun, engaging read that is sure to put a smile on your face :)
