Book Review: Picture Perfect by Janice Thompson
Hannah McDermott has a 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 extraordinaire 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 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 crazy bridal-business drama, sweet romance, and a satisfying dose of laughter.
I’ve been excited about this series since I first heard about it. I loved Bella and the whole Galveston-Splendora crew! I also loved Janice’s Backstage Pass series which included a couple of the characters from Weddings by Bella. I’ve been looking forward to catching up with Bella, DJ, the Splendora Sisters and everyone else.
Janice doesn’t disappoint.
In fact, immediately after reading this I posted the following on Facebook:
Janice Thompson’s first offering in her Weddings by Design series is, quite simply, Picture Perfect.
Or something to that effect anyway ;).
I absolutely loved Hannah. I loved Drew. I loved Hannah and Drew together. I loved their families.
I really, really loved seeing Bella and the gang.
But Hannah is like most of us. She wrestles with insecurities much like the rest of us. Some from high school. Some well-founded. Some completely groundless. Through it all, she learns to trust God. She learns that not everyone has it as all-together as they seem. She learns to “let go and let God”. And when she lets God, everything seems to turn out all right.
The Bob and Bing Party is fabulous [and Janice will be having one on Facebook soon! See my post from last week for more details].
Everyone, it seems, learns to step outside their comfort zones and into the life God has planned for them.
If only I could learn that lesson as well ;).
