"Picture Perfect " in Weddings by Design Series #1 by Janice Thompson

About the book: Known for her contagious humor and cast of quirky characters, Janice Thompson gives her fans more of the bridal business drama in a brand-new series all about those long-suffering people who make beautiful weddings happen. Picture Perfect is the first in the new series and brings our favorite character, Bella, back in a big way, while introducing new characters readers will love. Fans will laugh out loud as they experience this breezy and entertaining novel from a great storyteller.

Feisty wedding photographer Hannah McDermott has dealt with her share of difficult brides. But none can compare to the ultimate Bridezilla she's dealing with now. Still, she's trying desperately to impress Bella Neeley, Galveston Island's most sought-after wedding planner, so she can take the top spot in Bella's list of recommended photographers--a spot currently occupied by her arch-rival, Drew Kincaid. What she doesn't count on, however, is falling head over heels for the competition.

Review: A talented photographer, the older unmarried sister, living at home with parents, feeling she's "been passed by" in many ways gets the opportunity of a life-time to photograph the wedding of the year. But then she realizes that her "competition" is going to be getting in on some of the action. And yep! It's a "he." And It's a "Handsome he"! And he's a nice person, too.

Fasten your seat belts and get ready for a delightful, fun read of contemporary fiction that deals with the ups and downs of wedding planning, personality clashes, business competition, etc. Janice Thompson writes a light, fun story that will tickle your funny bone and capture your interest. 

I felt the book was well written and filled with interesting well-developed characters (you will love her father). Though not a genre I typically read, I enjoyed it and would give it a four-star rating. Not a five-star, you ask? No, and only because I felt there was not a lot of depth to the story. But then maybe if light hearted reading is what you need and crave, it would rate a five-star.

About the author: Janice Thompson is a seasoned romance author and screenwriter. An expert at pulling the humor from the situations we get ourselves into, Thompson offers an inside look at the wedding business, drawing on her own experiences as a wedding planner.
