All Dressed Up in Love by Ruth Logan Herne
Zondervan Publishing, Feb. 2015
This was such a sweet read! I completed it in an evening. The setting is Elena's Bridal shop in Old City Philadelphia. (BTW, I have an upcoming release set partially in colonial Philly!) Tara Simonetti strides into the store and takes attorney Greg Elizondo by surprise when she proposes to work in the shop. She's an answer to prayer, but he doesn't understand that at first! His mother has owned the exclusive Elena's Bridal for decades but when his mother passes away he realizes the store hasn't been keeping up with changes in the industry in order to keep competitive.
The bibliotherapy element I got out of this novella was how to face up to the fact that God has other plans for your life even when you think you've invested too much time and money to change. In this case, the heroine is a third year law student but clearly is best-suited for running a bridal shop. Lucky for her, the hero owns one. He has to realize that his plans for a big city job in NYC might not be best. But will they realize these things in time? Do they really have a chance together?
