I had no idea when I began reading this book that I would be diving into a hilarious romantic comedy. A Bouquet of Love by Janice Thompson is a page turner and truly belongs on the big screen. It is fourth in Thompson’s Weddings by Design series, and a must read for this year. Get out your “to read” list and add this title and the other three of this series!
I love the characters in this hysterical story about a frustrated daughter, a controlling father, and a very attractive delivery boy from the wrong family. This story is somewhere between My Big Fat Greek Wedding and Romeo and Juliet, but unique with its own flavor and dynamic. There are plenty of eccentric characters to keep you laughing along with believable, subtle romance to capture your attention. In fact, you might get so caught up in the story, you find yourself up way past bed time.
My favorite “supporting cast” members in A Bouquet of Love, were Aunt Twila and her best friends, Bonnie Sue and Jolene. I lived in Texas many years ago and I am positive I have met these women! Teased hair, glittery tops, and so much make-up you need something stronger than Noxzema to remove it might just describe their look.
I so enjoyed this book by Janice Thompson. It really was outside of my normal pick, but I will definitely be coming back for more from this author. I was given a complimentary copy of Bouquet of Love from its publisher, Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group, in exchange for an honest review. I have not been compensated and all opinions are my own.
