Shannon’s summer just got a whole lot more . . . Amish?
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.
Ms. Thompson is one of my absolute favorite Christian fiction authors! I have loved her since I read her Love Me Tender and Stars Collide books. There is just something about her writing that never ceases to amaze me. That said, this book is just another one of the great ones filled with lots of humor, loving characters and messages of faith and hope through out!
Gabi and Jordan are both wonderful characters! They both had an inner struggle with wanting to follow their dreams but being stuck doing what they feel they need to do. Watching them grow not only together with their feelings but in their faith and dreams, was truly a wonderful experience! I loved every minute of their story!
I absolutely loved getting the chance to see Bella again! I loved her in her Weddings By Bella series! Bella just lends the perfect charm to the stories!
I definitely recommend this novel to all! Ms. Thompson will have you smiling, laughing and wanting more. This is most definitely worthy of 4 stars. I can’t wait for the release of another wonderful Janice Thompson book! Bring on the next!
