~Book Review~ A Bouquet of Love by Janice Thompson

IMG_1402.JPG

Goodreads Synopsis:

Cassia Pappas has found herself in a nearly impossible situation. She wants to spend her time immersed in her new job at a Galveston Island floral shop, arranging blooms and brightening occasions with her lovely creations. But her huge Greek family–especially her father–has other ideas. They’ve all relocated to Galveston to open up a new family restaurant location on the Strand– directly across the street from the Rossis’ popular pizza place–and they want Cassia’s full participation.
To make matters worse, as Cassia is trying to develop a strong professional relationship with Galveston’s premier wedding coordinator, Bella Neeley, her own father is intent on stealing all of the Rossi family’s faithful customers. Not exactly the best way to get into Bella’s good graces!
Still, at least Alex, that hot delivery guy from the nursery, is always hanging around the flower shop . . .
Fan favorite Janice Thompson gives readers one more romp with Bella, Galveston, and the bustling wedding biz in the final installment of her popular series. Anyone who loves quirky families, loads of laughter, and tender romance will find themselves hooked.

My Review:

This book was really good! Probably one of my favorite books I have read this year. I have always liked family feuds especially between 2 hot headed families as the Rossi and Pappas families. They are Italian and Greek which means they both are going to do everything they can to win. This story is about the coming together of 2 families but with a lot of headaches along the way. Another thing about this book I likes, was how Cassia loved Judy Garland and the musical “Meet Me in St Louis” which is one of my all time favorite musicals. I give this book a five out of five stars.

~Book Review~ “The Dream Dress” by Janice Thompson

The Dream Dress

Goodreads Synopsis:

“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?”

My Review:

I loved this book! I have always loved everything about weddings and this book went right along with that. I seen the wedding dress on the front and thought, “this is going to be a good book” because it was so pretty and I was right. I loved the Cinderella storyline and the characters Gabi and Jordan had so much chemistry from the very beginning. The Fred and Ginger aspect was also neat. I give this book a 5 out of 5 stars.
