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.

I thrive while reading Christian Historical Fiction, and Janice Hanna (aka Janice Hanna Thompson, Janice Thompson) can write in any genre, contemporary or even nonfiction and have my eyes and mind captured to the page. This time in the third book of the Weddings by Design series also related to two previous trilogies of Weddings by Bella followed by Backstage Pass.
It was bittersweet starting this book, and commonly today books end in trilogies. And… while this trilogy is related to two other trilogies it is still hard to get enough of Janice’s stories. So… I was elated when I discovered there is to be a fourth book in the series! It’s a saga, not a trilogy!! Yay! A Bouquet of Love is set to publish in August 2014.
This book, this whole series!, has been an excellent distraction from life and if anyone can make me enjoy contemporary it’s Janice. I’ve loved the Galveston world of Bella and wedding friends since book one in the first series and now two series later I’m still enthralled and love them all from Weddings by Bella, to Backstage Pass, and now Weddings by Design each character is real enough off the page and entertaining to boot.
Gabi Delgado and Jordon Spencer might just be my favorite Galveston couple yet. So many innocent confusions and things to bring them together. Gabi is so quirky and melodramatic in a way that I can definitely relate and see bits of my personality. Especially in the since, that she is “completely normal” while the world around her is “off their rocker insane”. Getting to know Gabi and seeing her mold into the Club Wed family with characters I’ve come to know and love over the years of reading has been such a pleasure. 🙂
As I’m organizing my shelves I’ve noticed Janice Hanna Thompson seems to be taking up quite the amount of space. Her books are keepers. I have not just enjoyed but practically loved every book of hers in which I have read and I’m starting, a wishlist for those I’m missing.
