Book Review

Every Girl Has Her Day

27066857Katie’s determined to make it down the aisle this time–but it may be easier said than done.

Katie Fisher is ecstatic. Pro basketball star Brady James has proposed, and she can’t wait to start planning their life together. But it’s hard to focus on her own happily ever after when her calendar is filling up with celebrations for friends and family. Beyond that, it seems everyone around her has an opinion–and a strong one at that–on what Katie’s special day should look like. Will she ever manage to settle all of the details for her storybook wedding? Or will her overzealous friends and relations make a mess of everything?

I have so enjoyed getting to know all of the characters from this series since the first book and was excited to watch how the ending of their stories would unfold. Not to mention, that Janice Thompson is always such a fun author to pick up. I love her quirky storytelling and references to hollywood legends or country stars.

Unfortunately, I felt a little let down with this third novel. To make it short, the story didn’t feel like it really had a plot. It might have worked for a novella length story, but as a novel, well, let’s just say I had a hard time wanting to pick it back up.

The story still had some of the same fun humor that you find in many of Thompson’s stories, and the characters were lovable. But there was just something about this one. So many of the characters got engaged or got married in the course of the book that it became a bit over-the-top and unbelievable. It seemed as if nearly every chapter involved something.

The book is still light-hearted and an easy read. But, I would have been perfectly content leaving Katie and Brady’s story where the second book ended. This one just felt like an overly long epilogue.
