Another Delightful Romance from the Queen of Romantic Comedy
Katie Fisher is ecstatic. Pro basketball star Brady James has proposed, and she can't wait to start planning their life together. She's confident she'll make it down the aisle this time--but it still may be easier said than done. A high-society Houston bride has Katie and the Cosmopolitan Bridal team scrambling to get the perfect dress done in time for her spectacular wedding. Meanwhile, Katie finds herself bombarded with everyone's competing visions regarding her own special day--and she's beginning to worry that her own ideas will get lost in the crossfire. Will she ever manage to settle all of the details for her perfect day? Or will bridal shop chaos and overzealous friends and family make a mess of everything? Fan favorite Janice Thompson gives readers what they've been clamoring for: another funny, romantic romp with a Texas twang.

Deep in the Heart of (Outdoor) Wedding Planning
Guest Post for Lone Star Literary
Janice Thompson

There’s nothing like a Texas wedding. We know how to do it up right in the Lone Star State. And there’s nothing like an outdoor wedding reception when you’re not sure if the weather will cooperate! (Can I get an Amen?)
A few years back I was asked to bake a cake for a friend whose wedding was set to take place outdoors in a field. Talk about nervous! In my imagination I pictured my lovely wedding cake melting under rainy skies. Or, worse. I wondered if the cream cheese frosting would slide off of the yummy concoction as a result of the crazy-high Texas temps. Fortunately, nothing I’d worried about actually happened. This sweet shabby chic wedding was so fun and everything came together seamlessly, and the cake survived! (The warmth of the sun gave it that “fresh from the oven” flavor!)
I had this beautiful outdoor event in mind when I came up with the idea for Every Bride Has Her Day, the third and final installment in the Brides with Style series from Revell Publishing.
Picture a sweet outdoor reception on the courthouse lawn in the quaint, small-ish town of Fairfield, Texas. Now picture all of the townspeople in attendance. Now imagine that half the people in the town aren’t talking to the other half. If you can picture all of that, you’ve got the gist of my story. Katie and Brady, the bride and groom, are deep in the heart of wedding planning while those around them are deep in arguments and chaos!
Maybe you can relate. Maybe you’ve tried to put together a big event and no one seemed to get along. If so, then you’ll really enjoy this wacky, chaotic story, set in a sweeter-than-peaches town you’ll grow to love. Watch as the chaos morphs into something beautiful. Look on in wonder as Katie and Brady witness hard hearts softening before their very eyes. Then, with the rest of the wedding guests, enjoy the outdoor reception of a lifetime! Spend time sipping lemonade, nibbling on wedding cake and watching the bride and groom ride off into a glorious Texas sunset together. You’ll be glad you took the time to stop by, I promise you! This will be one outdoor event you’ll never forget.
