Eleven Bridesmaid Dresses Don’t Lie
Since she was just a little girl, Jessie Stone dreamed up hundreds of marriage proposals, doodled the romantic ideas in her journal with her treasured purple pen, and fantasized about wedding dresses and falling in love.  She’s been a bridesmaid nearly a dozen times, waved numerous couples off to sunny honeymoons, and shopped in more department stores for half-price fondue pots than she cares to remember.

But shopping for one key component of these countless proposals hasn't been quite as productive–a future husband. The man she thought she would marry cheated on her.  The crush she has on her best friend Blake is at very best…well, crushing.  And speed dating has only churned out memorable horror stories.

So when God shows up one day, in the flesh, and becomes a walking, talking part of her life, Jessie is skeptical. What will it take to convince her that the Almighty has a better plan than one she’s already cooked up in her journals?  Can she turn over her pen and trust someone else to craft a love story beyond her wildest dreams?

This was nothing what I expected and absolutely a delight to read!  This book reminded me in some ways like Bridget Jones Diary.  (Only a lot cleaner).  It was very funny to read.  I absolutely love the way the author told the story.  The voice of the main character was absolutely perfect; I felt as though I was listen to a story told by one of my best friends.
I wasn't sure what to think about having God as a main character in this story. In past experiences, the stories that feature God as a character either come off as holier than thou or offensive.  The authors did an absolutely fabulous job of creating God as a likable character and having respect for Him.

I can't say enough about this book- it was so good!  I think Christians and non-Christians alike would love this story- it was so incredibly well crafted!
