Weddings By Design book 1
by Janice Thompson
-From the back cover-
She's trying to focus on her future.
How can one man make everything feel so...fuzzy?
Hannah McDermott has successful photography studio. She'll soon be featured in Texas Bride magazine. And she has a celebrity client whose Galveston ceremony will be her ticket to the top spot on wedding coordinator Bella Neeley's list of recommended photographers. But it could all come crashing down around her because of one man: archrival and photographer Drew Kincaid.
As the competition between Hannah and Drew heats up, Hannah is surprised to find that it's not the only thing getting more intense. She just can't get the handsome man out of her thoughts – or even out of her line of sight – and the job of her dreams is turning into a nightmare. Will everything she's worked for slip out of her hands? And can she see past her pride to find a picture-perfect love?
With contagious humor and a cast of quirky characters, Janice Thompson gives you a crazy bridal-business drama, sweet romance, and a satisfying dose of laughter.
Romantic comedy at it's best! What the movies we chicks love to watch SHOULD be like!
Sometimes a reader just needs to sit back and enjoy a book that will make them laugh. Picture Perfect fit that bill perfectly for me. This book was a delightful read, like a breath of air!
This Book earned a 4.5 Bark rating.

Hannah's life is flowing steadily on, hardly a ripple, her business is doing well. But not matter how hard she tries she always seems to come out second best. Everywhere she goes she finds her “Jacquie Goldfarb”, the girl that bested her in high school, and the name she nows uses as euphemism for person or situation that beats her or leaves her feeling inadequate. It takes an Italian family, her grandfather's wise sayings, and three ladies from Splendora to help set her aright. Of course a handsome guy and a wonderful best friend don't hurt either. Hannah has to learn to trust God and to stand up for herself with His power.
One of the things I just loved about this book were the chapter headings, all Irish proverbs. I found some familiar and favorite ones “May those who love us, love us. And for those who don't love us, May God turn their hearts. And if He cannot turn their hearts, may He turn their ankles, So we may know them by their limping” (Chapter 2), and some new ones that will become favorites “Blessed are those that can laugh at themselves, For they shall never cease to be amused” (Chapter 21).
This is only the second Janice Thompson book I have read, the first was Fools Rush In, and not only will I be looking for the 2nd and 3rd Weddings By Bella books but I am anxiously awaiting the next Weddings By Design book, The Icing On The Cake. Janice is a master of the Romantic Comedy genre and I am definitely looking forward to more.
If you are looking for a light and absolutely fun read that manages to slip in some valuable lessons about faith and trust, this book is for you.
Tell Tale Book Reviews gives Picture Perfect by Janice Thompson a 4.5 Bark rating.
