Picture Perfect ~ Review

About the Book:

Feisty wedding photographer Hannah McDermott has dealt with her share of difficult brides. But none can compare to the ultimate Bridezilla she's dealing with now. Still, she's trying desperately to impress Bella Neeley, Galveston Island's most sought-after wedding planner, so she can take the top spot in Bella's list of recommended photographers--a spot currently occupied by her arch-rival, Drew Kincaid. What she doesn't count on, however, is falling head over heels for the competition.

My Thoughts:

This is my first time to read a book by Janice Thompson and I really enjoyed it! Picture Perfect is a feel good story that captures perfectly, the love and joy of family, falling in love, and the ups and downs of discovering who we are! Bella is a very successful photographer, however, she feels in life she may never get past the disappointments and the "almosts" that she has faced and recalled endlessly in her mind. It seems with every amazing opportunity she is given, she always seems to fall just short of where she should be. It doesn't help when Bella is given yet another phenomenal opportunity to photograph a wedding, but also in the running is her #1 competitor, Drew Kincaid, who also happens to be oh so handsome! Will Bella be able to believe in herself or will she come up short yet again??

Janice Thompson introduces us to some awesome people and families that would be a blast to spend time with! I could just hear the clanging of the dishes, the laughter and conversations as they all sat around the dinner table and I felt like I could just see the beautiful shots Bella captured through the eyes of her camera. I truly appreciated Bella's journey and how her awareness of who she is in Christ was portrayed. She shared her feelings of doubt and like so many of us, it took time to believe just how much we have to offer and how very special we are in Gods eyes!

I recommend Picture Perfect for any and all! If you have any teens that love to read, this would be a GREAT series for them to begin!

Thank you Donna and Revell books for allowing me this complimentary issue in exchange for my honest review!

I loved this one. I have loved all Janice's books and it was so fun to revisit the Rossi family.
