Review | All Dressed Up in Love

amazon Christianbook.com Goodreads
Walking into the bridal shop Tara Simonetti knows she’s found a home. Well, at least until she finishes her law degree.

First, there’s room after room of every Barbie dream come true and Tara can’t help be to be enchanted.

Second, there’s Greg Elizondo, the new owner who’s absolutely adorable and completely in over his head.

Luckily, Tara still has her common sense to remind her she’s got three years of law school debt to pay for and Greg is really a lawyer who plays with the big boys not the helpful one Tara dreams to be.

But can Tara live with her dreams when they beome her reality?

Hott Review:

I REALLY enjoyed All Dressed Up in Love! I loved Tara. As a person, she is really fun and I do love stories about wedding dress shops. They seem so romantic.
Plus, I really seemed to ‘get’ her marketing suggestions and how she was able to make it work. They reminded me of stuff on my to-do list and long forgotten memories.
Sometimes these stories are difficult to review. They’re obviously well-written or they wouldn’t be in this set, yet, I want to give readers a true account so they can decide whether it’ll be a book they’ll love.
All Dressed Up in Love is another book for my keep shelf!

Author Bio:

Ruth Logan Herne loves Charlie Brown Christmas trees, rooting for the underdog and people who go the distance while others see the path as too long or broken! She loves God, chocolate, writing, dogs and is blessed by a sprawling family, oodles of grandkids and a sweet old farmhouse in constant need of work. She’s sure that clean rooms are over-rated, snakes and possums should mind their own business and buy their own farm and puppies and kittens and babies are about the cutest things on Earth. A “pull-up-your-big-girl-panties-and-move-on” kind of gal, she is blessed to be married to her high school sweetheart (although it wasn’t as if THEY WERE KNOCKING DOWN THE DOOR to challenge him for her!!!), work with young families who allow her to exploit their sweet children on blogs, and rock babies on a regular basis. An author for Love Inspired Books and Summerside Press, she lives in upstate New York.
