I received this book from Waterbrook Press/Blogging for Book. I received this book to give my honest review of what I read.
Eleven Bridesmaid Dresses Don’t Lie
Since she was just a little girl, Jessie Stone dreamed up hundreds of marriage proposals, doodled the romantic ideas in her journal with her treasured purple pen, and fantasized about wedding dresses and falling in love. She’s been a bridesmaid nearly a dozen times, waved numerous couples off to sunny honeymoons, and shopped in more department stores for half-price fondue pots than she cares to remember.
But shopping for one key component of these countless proposals hasn’t been quite as productive–a future husband. The man she thought she would marry cheated on her. The crush she has on her best friend Blake is at very best…well, crushing. And speed dating has only churned out memorable horror stories.
So when God shows up one day, in the flesh, and becomes a walking, talking part of her life, Jessie is skeptical. What will it take to convince her that the Almighty has a better plan than one she’s already cooked up in her journals? Can she turn over her pen and trust someone else to craft a love story beyond her wildest dreams?
Never The Bride was originally written by Cheryl Mckay as a screenplay and Rene Gutteridge wrote it into a novel. Never The Bride is an entertaining story about Jessie Stone a romantic whose biggest dream is to find Mr. Right and get married. She had over 100 journals and in those journals she has many different scenarios for proposals. One day God appears in human form to her and tells her she needs to share her ideas with others. She quits her job and starts her own business helping men plan and execute the perfect proposals. Jessie and her sister, Brooklyn work together. God asks Jessie to trust Him to write her love story.
I enjoyed this book a lot. I found myself laughing out loud and other times tears. This story truly shows what happens when you lean on God instead of yourself. Our authors show God’s unconditional love and what happens when you put your faith in Him. This was a well written story with a lot of emotion. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a story that is funny and romantic.
