The Dream Dress

Author: Janice Thompson
Publisher: Revell
February 2014
ISBN: 978-0800721541
Genre: Contemporary romance

Big dreams take big leaps of faith . . . but what if you trip on the way?

A lowly 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 original dress designs gracing the young women of Texas. But when Jordan Singer, reporter for Texas Bride magazine, visits the shop to do a feature, Gabi is humbled in his influential--and unnervingly handsome--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.

THE DREAM DRESS is the third book in Ms. Thompson’s Wedding by Design series, but it easily stands alone. Fans will want to read Picture Perfect and The Icing on the Cake to get Bella’s and Scarlett’s stories.

I enjoy Ms. Thompson’s fun stories, and THE DREAM DRESS is the best of her’s I’ve read yet. Quirky and fun, it has some laugh out loud moments and others where you just want to weep when everything goes wrong for Gabi.

A fun, light-hearted story that is sure to delight her old fans and win new ones. 5 stars. $13.99. 336 pages.
