Review: The Dream Dress by:Janice Thompson
About the Book:
A seamstress at a swanky bridal boutique, Gabi Delgado dreams of doing more than ripping out seams and fitting dresses to doe-eyed brides. She wants to see her own dress designs gracing the young women of Texas. When Jordan Spencer, the editor of Texas Bride magazine visits the shop to do a feature, Gabi is devastated to lose her job in his very influential presence. Convinced she'll never get her dreams off the ground now, Gabi needs lots of encouragement--especially from her friend Bella Neeley--to take a chance and start her business. And as she gets to know Jordan, she discovers that she may have to take a chance on love as well. Could it be that she'll have to design her own wedding dress soon?

Gabi's dream is to design her own dresses, but that is not what chosen job is at the moment. She works for a well-known designer, who usually pushes her to the brink of insanity. But with the news of a reporter coming, everyone is running around like crazy, all accept Gabi. She does help and usually helps to design the dresses but what does she care if a reporter is coming to write a story on her boss and not her. Well, that is how she felt until she laid her eyes on this man who looked as if he could be related to Prince William. After she seen him it was like she didn't remember his name, her name, or what she was suppose to be doing.
Jordan likes working as a reporter, but not a reporter for weddings. How does a guy like him, have what it takes to report that? But if denying this opportunity means the lost of his paycheck then he will gladly write about weddings. Upon arriving at a famous designers store, he is surrounded by talk of weddings and proposals. But the one thing that caught him by surprise is the beauty of one of the employees, and after talking to a friend of hers, he finds out that her ultimate dream is to be a designer but hasn't had a chance to start out on her own. What could be stopping someone like her?
