Picture Perfect


Feisty wedding photographer Hannah McDermott has dealt with her share of difficult brides. But none can compare to the ultimate Bridezilla she's dealing with now. Still, she's trying desperately to impress Bella Neeley, Galveston Island's most sought-after wedding planner, so she can take the top spot in Bella's list of recommended photographers--a spot currently occupied by her arch-rival, Drew Kincaid. What she doesn't count on, however, is falling head over heels for the competition.

With her contagious humor and cast of quirky characters, Janice Thompson gives readers more of the bridal business drama they want in a brand-new series all about those long-suffering people who make beautiful weddings happen. Readers are desperately waiting for more of Bella and this new series brings her back in a big way, while introducing new characters fans will love. Fans will laugh out loud as they experience this breezy and entertaining novel from a great storyteller.

My Review:

Picture Perfect is the perfect book for readers who enjoy a liberal dose of humour with their romance. Thompson excels at the snappy quips and awkward moments that accompany the perilous path towards true love. Be prepared for lots of laugh out loud moments. And Bella Neely and clan (Weddings by Bella series) make liberal guest appearances throughout the story. A hearty dose of Irish proverbs add to the madcap feel of this light-hearted read. But for all the hilarity, there is a serious inspirational thread that really touched me as Hannah struggles with how to measure her value. I think many readers will relate to this heroine's issues and consequently be uplifted by her journey.

    I can get why this story would be full of humor and warmth. It looks it and there's a Bridezilla involved. Thankfully I haven't had to deal with one in real life.
