Every Girl Gets Confused

by Janice Thompson

How can she choose between the love she thought she lost and the love she stumbled upon in the aftermath?

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-fiancé 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?

Every Girl Gets Confused is romantic comedy at its best. A sweet romance. A wonderful band of supporting family and friends. And enough humor to keep me smiling on each page. I highly recommend it!”–Cara Putman, award-winning author of Shadowed by Grace and Where Treetops Glisten

“A delightful mix of romance, inspiration, and humor, woven together with Thompson’s trademark Texas storytelling and a happily-ever-after ending that will make you want to swoon.”–Judy Christie, author of Wreath, A Girl in the Wreath Willis series

“Janice Thompson tosses her readers into a humorous whirl of romantic possibilities with characters I swear I’ve met in small-town Texas. Fun!”–Julianna Deering, author of the Drew Farthering Mystery series.

 

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

Anytime I see a Janice Thompson book, I know I am in store for a wonderful, fun, romantic and humorous read. And Every Girl Get’s Confused was no disappointment. I loved the delightful and  charming characters, the small town family feel, with the big city lurking around as well. Ms. Thompson does a fantastic job of moving back and forth between the big city life and the small town family life. Most of this story involves around the romance of Katie Fisher, with a lot of pleasant surprises in between. Katie has a choice to make, will she choose her now boyfriend, NBA player Brady or will she go back home to her one time almost fiancée Casey?

Join Janice Thompson as you read her latest, Every Girl Gets Confused. You may even get confused with Katie as she tried her best to make this important choice that will sure change her life. This is one book that will not disappoint, and if you enjoy a good, clean, romance, this is the book for you!

The Dream Dress

About this book

Big dreams take big leaps of faith . . . but what if you trip on the way?

A lowly 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 original dress designs gracing the young women of Texas. But when Jordan Singer, reporter for Texas Bride magazine, visits the shop to do a feature, Gabi is humbled in his influential–and unnervingly handsome–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.

Praise for the Weddings by Design Series

“Funny one-liners and absolutely lovable characters combine with just enough romantic tension to keep the pages turning.”–RT Book Reviews on Picture Perfect

“This breezy, fun-filled romance is sure to please readers who have been eagerly awaiting the second series installment.”–Library Journal on The Icing on the Cake

 

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

Gabi is so frustrated now that she just can’t seem to design her dream dress like she had dreamed of for so long. But those around her will not let her give up, so they did whatever they could to encourage her to keep on designing. What she didn’t expect was to me Jordan Singer along the way. And singer just seems like a good name for a seamstress doesn’t it?

I have enjoyed Janice Thompson’s Wedding by Design Series because she just knows how to write a fantastic romance! As Gabi meets Jordan, I enjoyed following their journey. Though the story was pretty straight forward, but not a lot of twists and turns, I was still glued to the story, because I wanted to see if it would end like I wanted it to! This is truly a story for the romantic at heart! I think a young lady engaged to be married or just married would love to read this book and this series! Thus, I have passed The Dream Dress and the others books in this series along to my new daughter-in-law!

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

The Icing on the Cake by Janice Thompson was a really fun and entertaining book to read. The characters are just out of this world good, just as they were in the first book in this series. Scarlet was excited that she finally has her own bakery, but sometimes things do not run as smoothly as she wants, especially with her aunt, when puts some spice to the story. I also appreciated that Ms. Thompson has Scarlet face difficult personal issues that we all face at one time or another, because it makes the story seem so realistic. I have only read a few books by Janice Thompson, but I really enjoyed them all, and I always enjoy visiting characters from other books and series. The story just keeps going on and on, and these are characters that I would love to just keep reading about. I can’t want for Book Three in this series, I know it will by another winner my Ms. Thompson.

About this book

She’s trying to focus on her future. How can one man make everything feel so . . . fuzzy?

Hannah McDermott has a successful photography studio. She’ll soon be featured in Texas Bride magazine. And she has a celebrity client whose Galveston ceremony will be her ticket to the top spot on wedding coordinator Bella Neeley’s list of recommended photographers. But it could all come crashing down around her because of one man: archrival and photographer extraordinaire Drew Kincaid.

As the competition between Hannah and Drew heats up, Hannah is surprised to find that it’s not the only thing getting more intense. She can’t get the handsome man out of her thoughts-or even out of her line of sight-and the job of her dreams is turning into a nightmare. Will everything she’s worked for slip out of her hands? And can she see past her pride to find a picture-perfect love?

With contagious humor and a cast of quirky characters, Janice Thompson gives you crazy bridal-business drama, sweet romance, and a satisfying dose of laughter.

 

My Thoughts on this book

Just as the other books I’ve read by Janice Thompson, Picture Perfect is an enjoyable and fun read, with characters that you will grow to love.  Hannah is a fun character and wanted desperately to fulfill this opportunity that could boost her photography business, but it wasn’t as easy as she might have thought.

I enjoyed the humor in this wedding story, even though it wasn’t difficult to see where the story line was going. But not to worry about knowing what will happen, there is enough going on in this story to keep you interested and wanting to read to the end. If you enjoy light, heartwarming reads with a good bit of humor involved, you will love Picture Perfect. I highly recommend this for a wonderful enjoyable reading experience.

Queen of the Waves……by Janice Thompson

About Queen of the Waves

Two families on opposite sides of the globe are shaken by the rise and fall of the Titanic, “queen of the ocean.”

When pampered Jacqueline Abington makes secret plans to elope with the family gardener, she concocts a scheme for another woman to take her place on the much-anticipated maiden voyage of the Titanic. From a poor corner of London, Tessa Bowen has been granted the opportunity of a lifetime-a ticket to sail to America aboard a famed vessel. But there’s a catch: she must assume another woman’s identity. For the first time in her life, Tessa stays in expensive quarters, dresses in luxurious gowns, and dines with prestigious people. Then a wealthy young American man takes an interest in her, and Tessa must struggle to keep up the ruse even as she finds herself falling for him. When tragedy strikes, the game is up, and Tessa’s life is forever changed.

“I absolutely loved this novel. Janice Thompson captures the true heart of the voyage and makes us feel as if we are a part of the Titanic. She also makes sure God’s love shines through this tragedy and shows that He has better things in store!”  -Cathy Peeling, great-niece of Edward Smith, captain of the Titanic

“Janice Thompson has concocted a tale I couldn’t put down. Queen of the Waves is a deft weaving of deceit confronted by truth, shame confounded by love, and guilt swallowed in forgiveness. Beautifully written, this is a very different take on Titanic’s many stories-one you won’t want to miss, one you won’t forget.” -Christy-Award winning author Cathy Gohlke

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

I’ve read several books on the Titanic this year so I was excited to read Queen of the Waves for another story about this time in history, which I’m surprised because I really didn’t care for the movie that much. But I really like Janice Thompson’s story of Tessa and Nathan, alone with the other characters involved with Tessa being on the ship in the first place. Tessa is such a sweet person with a personality that rubs off on those around her, as we see in the story. Throughout all of the horrible tragedy with Titanic, this is a story readers can really enjoy and appreciate. And the vivid details of the time in history leading up to when the Titanic set sail, and as the story unfolds until the end, well it is just an awesome history lesson.

Of course this book is only fiction, and these things didn’t happen aboard the ship, but I loved imagining what it was like, with all of the rich and famous, and imagining what it was like to be there during the  horrific tragedy. I thoroughly enjoyed Queen of the Waves and highly recommend it for your reading enjoyment. You will not be disappointed.

Director’s Cut by Janice Thompson…From Revell Publishers

The Director’s Cut

By Janice Thompson

About the Book and Praise for Janice Thompson

The one thing she can’t direct is her heart.

Tia Morales is used to calling the shots. She’s the director of the popular sitcom Stars Collide, and her life on the set is calculated and orderly. Well, most of the time. Life outside the studio is another matter. If only she could get other people to behave as well as her stars do! When she starts to have feelings for handsome cameraman Jason Harris–with whom she’s been butting heads for months–it’s enough to send a girl over the edge. Will she ever learn to let go and take life–and love–as it comes?

Full of the humor and crazy family dynamics Janice Thompson fans have come to love, this colorful story gives you an inside look at Hollywood and a healthy dose of romance.

If you want more of Bella, DJ, Brock Benson, and other favorite characters from Janice Thompson, you’ll love the Backstage Pass series.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK!

This is a wonderful ending to a wonderful and fun series that I thoroughly enjoyed. Tia is a fun but determined young lady, well, she was just plain out a control freak. Being the director of the hit TV show Stars Collide wasn’t always easy and it wasn’t always easy to stay in control of things, which is what Tia thrived on.

Mia’s life took an interesting turn when she started falling for cameraman Jason. Does Jason have his work cut out for him trying to calm Tia down enough to enjoy life?

Knowing nothing about behind the scenes of a TV sitcom, I was fascinated buy the inside information I read in Director’s Cut. And I enjoyed getting to know both sides of the characters, the on and off screen. And Janice Thompson pulls the story together beautifully.

In the summertime it’s nice to find books that are a nice light, fast, fun and exciting read to take you away for a few days, and The Director’s Cut is just this read! Grab a copy to read and enjoy for yourself, or to take on vacation so you can have some nice ‘you’ time.

Hello, Hollywood!

“Thompson writes an enjoyable story that will make you want to adopt the Pappas family as your own.”–RT Book Reviews

“I love Janice’s writing and this book is no different. From start to finish, I enjoyed reading more about Athena and her life story. She is a character that I really connect with and enjoy.”– TheNearSightedBookworm.blogspot.com

“Janice provides an upbeat and engaging story and her readers will adore Hello, Hollywood!.”–RelzReviews.com

“Faith, romance, hilarious quotes about Greeks, Zeus the possessed dog, and an entertaining story will have you hungry for more Janice Thompson!”–FiveStarBooksandMore.blogspot.com

“This fun entry in Thompson’s comic Hollywood series (after Stars Collide) features humor, romance, and breezy dialog.”–Library Journal

 

Stars Collide

“An eclectic mix of the sort of zany characters Thompson is known for adds levity to this modern, star-studded romance. Glimpses into a Hollywood television studio and a series of lively comedic events make for a contemporary low-key inspirational romance that will appeal to readers who enjoyed the setting and humor of Rene Gutteridge’s Occupational Hazards series.”–Booklist

“A fun novel of love, paparazzi, and family, Stars Collide is a read that won’t easily be put down.”–Midwest Book Review
