We review books. Most review books have been provided by author, publisher or public relations firms.
We are not required to write positive reviews. But we try to find positives in each review, and we pick books that interest us.
We receive no compensation for reviewing. Some folks consider a book to be compensation, so, we need to disclose that we receive books to review.
It would be difficult to review a book without the opportunity to read it.

Janice Thompson's Every Girl Gets Confused ~ Reviewed
Katie Fisher and Brady James may be a match made in heaven, but that doesn't seem to guarantee them a happily ever after accompanied by angelic choirs. Katie's almost-fiance Casey is back in Fairfield, ready to rekindle their relationship. And there's nothing Katie's parents want more than for their small-town girl to leave Dallas and come home for good. But can she really leave Brady behind? And will she ever be able to wear that gorgeous wedding dress she won?
I appreciate that Janice Thompson put her characters through a little reality check in Every Girl Gets Confused. Now Katie is every bit of the hopeful bride. She is immersed in bridal smells and sounds and lace every day in her job as the go to girl at Cosmopolitan Bridal. But Katie takes a few bumps along the way. Take Brady for instance. The man who has stepped in to help heal her Casey-crushed heart. But even Brady, as nearly perfect as he is, has a few struggles that put Katie’s mind in a spin cycle of confusion.
And have Katie’s brothers all found true love? Then even her grandma? Katie’s still hoping for a ring on her finger but it seems as if maybe her happily ever after isn’t going to come knocking on her door any time soon. Her parents are suddenly experiencing a second honeymoon kind of a lifestyle with adventure and trips. Casey begins to contact Katie every once in awhile to reminisce about the good old days. Brady is so caught up in his own epic challenge that sometimes Katie just feels real alone. Can she weather this storm and hold out for the real deal versus the counterfeit that keeps being dangled right in front of her?
There’s more, of course, plenty of drama for all involved. Even Doris Day gets in on the action. Needless to say, there is a satisfying ending as well as the promise of another book to resolve all the frayed and loose ends of all of Katie’s friends and families.
If you love your romance as big as Texas and sweet as wedding cake then you probably need to check into this series.
