Jessie Stone is one girl who is absolutely determined to get married! She feels like her time is running out and very much comes off as the desperate girl looking for a guy. She actually goes speed dating on Valentine's Day! No staying home eating chocolate for this girl. This book combines humor, love and a wonderful blooming relationship with God. (although it's not at all what you'd expect).
The only thing I have to be honest about is that I had to look at this book more of a comedy than a serious awareness and relationship with our Father in Heaven. The way God is portrayed is not respectful enough of how I think of my Heavenly Father. I do agree that He knows and loves us better than anyone, and there are great lessons to be found in this book. A very light and enjoyable read with a twist at the end that took me by surprise!
Jessie Stone has spent thirty-five years fantasizing about marriage proposals, wedding dresses, and falling in love. She’s been a bridesmaid eleven times, waved dozens of couples off to sunny honeymoons, and shopped in more department stores for half-price fondue pots than she cares to remember.
But shopping in the love-of-her-life department hasn't been quite as productive. 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 God has a better love story than one of the thousands she’s cooked up in her journals? Will she trust Him with her pen when it appears her dreams of being the bride are forever lost?
A romantic comedy with a spiritual twist, Never the Bride is what it means to lose control—and getting more than any woman could ever imagine.
