Title: The Wedding Dress Yes
Author: Amanda Tru
Major Themes: Romance, Women’s Fiction
Synopsis: When London, a wedding dress designer, decides to help brides who were not served well at a bridal store, she doesn’t realize the trouble she will get into when her help is found out.
I haven’t read any Tru books before, although I’ve wanted to take time to do so. This time, though, I got to read The Wedding Dress Yes, which was in a collection of the same title. What a fun book! It is lighter than some I’ve read recently, but has a few fun elements I haven’t seen in other books that easily made this book a four-star read for me.
London Hutchins’ business is doing well. If only she could say the same about the business she works next to—from her observations, the woman who owns the bridal shop is more out to boost her own ego and get her way with the brides choices than to help them. When she feels like she needs to do a little more than just listen in and wish things would change, London works behind the bridal shop owner’s back to help the different brides. However, this backfires pretty quickly, and she’s in even worse trouble. The worst trouble of all, though, is that the one man she had hoped to never seen again appears suddenly in her life, wanting to revive a relationship she was ready to be done with. What is God’s will for her life? What should she do about these brides who need help?
This book has just a hint of mystery, and it also has an unusual setting with a sweet romance. For me, it came at a time when I was wanting a lighter read, so The Wedding Dress Yes was just perfect. I also loved all the dressmaking terms that were in here—it felt quite realistic. Overall, though this book doesn’t have a very deep plot, I really enjoyed it as a break from heavier reading, and for that it was quite worthwhile to me.
I received a free review copy of this book, and this is my honest opinion of it.
