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.
“Readers will fall in love with Katie.”–Library Journal



“A feel-good romantic comedy of subverted expectations. . . . Readers will laugh and sigh along with Katie as she comes into her own, discovering a life and love beyond her dreams.”–Booklist



“Romantic comedy at its best. I highly recommend it!”–Cara Putman, award-winning author of Shadowed by Grace and Where Treetops Glisten



“A delightful mix of romance, inspiration, and humor.”–Judy Christie, author of Wreath, A Girl in the Wreath Willis series 





Interview #2 with Janice Thompson,

Author of Every Bride Has Her Day


What kind(s) of writing do you do?

Because I’m a full-time freelance writer, I’ve crossed genre lines to write contemporary romantic comedies, historicals, cozy mysteries, inspirational romances, and even non-fiction devotionals. I’ve also written dozens and dozens of magazine articles and hundreds of blog posts. I’m perfectly at home in every genre, though I tend to thrive with romantic comedy.


What cultural value do you see in writing/reading/storytelling/etc.?

Story-telling is an art-form that has been passed down from generation to generation. I recently spent time with a good friend who’s eighty-four years old. She has the most amazing family stories. Wow! I love listening to her share about her great-great-great grandfather and her four-times great grandmother, etc. She tells her stories with such effervescence that I can’t help but be drawn in. That’s that I hope to do with my stories, too. I share about loud, wacky families, and most of my books deal with culture clashes (what fun!). If nothing else, these stories explore very real (albeit funny) issues that crop up when you throw a ton of VERY different people into the same scene/situation. In my case, humor abounds. Craziness abounds. Good times abound.


How does your book relate to your spiritual practice?

My faith journey is integral to my life. I could no more leave it out of my novels/stories than I could stop breathing! I hope it leaks through on every page. In every situation the characters face I have an opportunity to share nuggets of truth. Oh, what fun I have doing so!


What did you enjoy most about writing this book?

I love the (very real) town of Fairfield, Texas and I LOVE wedding planning. To set a wedding in Fairfield was a dream come true. I especially loved the outdoor wedding reception on the courthouse lawn. Boy, oh boy, did I ever have fun coming up with all of the vendors, etc. What a blast!


If you had a superpower, what would it be?

I would heal disease. We’ve struggled with a lot of it in my family. My youngest granddaughter has a neuro-muscular disease. My mom, as I said in the prior interview, has Alzheimers. I have autoimmune arthritis. I’d love to snap my fingers and make all of the pain go away.


What do your plans for future projects include?

I hope to write a dog rescue series soon and I plan to keep the Bella novellas going as long as the readers are interested in hearing about Bella’s wacky wedding-planning adventures!


What is something you want to accomplish before you die?

I want to go to Italy.
