The Dream Dress {Janice Thompson}

The Dream Dress {Janice Thompson} | #bookreview #weddingsbydesign #christianfiction
A seamstress at a swanky bridal boutique, Gabi Delgado dreams of doing more than ripping out seams and fitting dresses to doe-eyed brides. She wants to see her own dress designs gracing the young women of Texas. When Jordan Spencer, the editor of Texas Bride magazine visits the shop to do a feature, Gabi is devastated to lose her job in his very influential presence. Convinced she'll never get her dreams off the ground now, Gabi needs lots of encouragement--especially from her friend Bella Neeley--to take a chance and start her business. And as she gets to know Jordan, she discovers that she may have to take a chance on love as well. Could it be that she'll have to design her own wedding dress soon?

If you haven't noticed by now, I love Janice Thompson. And I love, love, love the Weddings by Bella and Weddings by Design series. I want to be Bella Neeley's best friend.

We met Gabi Delgado briefly in Picture Perfect as the designer of Hannah's wedding dress. She also made an appearance in Icing on the Cake when Scarlett's bridesmaid dress was too large. In The Dream Dress we get to really know her and become a part of her life.

Gabi sees herself as a real life Cinderella, locked away in a closet doing the hard work while someone else gets all the credit. It's by chance that she catches the eye of the amazing Jordan Spencer, and things really begin to turn around for Gabi.

As Gabi becomes more involved with Scarlett's wedding, she also becomes a part of the circle that is Bella Neeley. One of the things I love so much about Bella is her willingness to tell anyone about the love of Jesus and what he can do for us. So of course Bella gets a hold of Gabi.

It's at that moment in Gabi's life that things really begin to turn around. Just a Cinderella found the perfect life, the perfect life shows up for Gabi as well. I won't tell you exactly how perfect it all becomes, but I can promise you - you will love it!

I'm so excited that I have an ARC of Bouquet of Love, the fourth book in the series, on my tablet. I can't wait to get started.
