I really had fun returning to the Brides with Style series. Every Girl Gets Confused is book two in this series, however, I think it could be read alone. I do believe that having read book one made book two even more enjoyable.
I liked the lighthearted feel that the author captured. There are some topics that are heavy, such as one of the main characters battling feelings of depression when facing the possibility of the end of a dream. But, the author does a very good job of keeping this an uplifting story.
There were so many fun moments in the book, especially revolving around the small town wedding preparations. Aunt Alva had many comedic moments. The sweet, the fun, & the romantic moments combined wonderfully to create a very good story.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
ABOUT THE 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.
