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.
After loving Janice Thompson's Weddings by Bella series I could not wait to read her new wedding series! Sadly it took me until now to finally get around to reading this first one, but thankfully it did not disappoint in the least!
Once again filled with the humor I've come to expect from Janice's books, a fun family dynamic, and a cute love story, this book had all the right ingredients for a great story!
I loved both Hannah and Drew and their romance was sweet even if it seemed that some parts moved a little fast. Their profession of photography was pretty cool and I loved seeing the little moments that they caught through their lenses.
I also loved the fact the Bella, DJ, the Rossi clan, and the Splendora sisters from the first series were in this book a lot! I knew that they were going to be in it but I thought it was going to be a lot minor than they were! I enjoyed their big family antics once again and it was especially fun when you mixed their big Italian family, the Splendora crew, and Hannah's Irish family!
So needless to say I loved this book and I immediately was ready to dive into book two!
