I really wasn’t quite sure what to expect from the premise. A 30 something woman who can’t fall in love embarks on a romance with God – in the flesh – here on earth!
Could the authors pull it off??
This book is fantastic! So good in fact I want to read it over and over. What I loved so much is the authors never put words in God’s mouth. All the examples of what God did in the story can be found in scripture as relating to the God we serve.
As a young woman who is a hopeless romantic and can sometimes wait most impatiently for Mr. Right, I wanted to fall deeper in love with God. “Never the Bride” pushed me to trust and love deeper with my God, to give my love story writing back to Him.
I wish I could go on and on! The book has humor (I haven’t laughed this much from a book since Janice Thompson’s Bella), it has character, it has charm. And the HERO?? Ladies, take my word for it: this is one awesome hero.
And not only that, it has a message the young (and maybe not so young) hopeless romantics need to read.
Who can’t help but fall in love with a hero as amazing as our Lord and Savior??
This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to the publishers for my copy to review.
About the book...
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?
