Wow! It’s bad enough that Mari isn’t chosen by her own sister as the maid of honor but, too find out she was specifically chosen because she was the right height for the fourteen year old groomsman.

Wait! This is about her sister, Crystal’s, wedding, not her own dreams. Mari can do this. It’s not a big deal, right?

Hott Review:

What I liked: I really enjoyed Mari. She’s really a great person. She has a servant’s heart. She’s not thinking about guys. She’s just into being a great child of God and a great family member.
What I didn’t like: Honestly what I didn’t like was that this is the first book in the entire series that I felt like the cover and title misrepresented the book. It was like the theme was more important than honesty. Sure they were minor details but, they irked me.
I also had issues with Crystal. Sure, everyone kept saying how wonderful she is but, honestly, I just didn’t see it.

Author Bio:

My name is Janice Thompson. (You will find me published under Janice Hanna, Janice Hanna Thompson, Janice A. Thompson as well.)

I’m a Christian freelance author of novels, non-fiction books, magazine articles and musical comedies for the stage. I live in the Houston area, where the heat and humidity tend to reign, regardless of the season.

I’m the mother of four beautiful daughters, (Randi, Courtney Rae, Megan and Courtney Elizabeth. Yes, I really do have two daughters named Courtney! Long story…) I also have the three prettiest granddaughters any Nana could hope for – Madysen Lynae, Avery Rae and Peyton Renae. Grandbaby #4, Ethan Ames, was just born in the winter of ‘09 and baby Boston Craig just arrived in the spring of ‘10. Another baby girl is on the way – baby Brooke!

Our family is extremely active in local ministry. My oldest daughter, Randi, leads worship in the Houston area, Courtney Rae leads worship at her church in Montana, Megan works with children at our local church and Courtney Elizabeth sings on the worship team at her church in Michigan. I’m thrilled to have four grown daughters who love the Lord (and several granddaughters who one day will)!
