When a dressmaker who values beauty tangles with a liveryman who condemns vanity, the sparks begin to fly!
I started reading A Tailor-Made Bride immediately after I finished Head in the Clouds. Though nothing could send Head in the Clouds toppling from it’s place at the top of my favorites list, A Tailor-Made Bride certainly catapulted onto that list, as well.
Just as hysterically funny and well-researched as the other, A Tailor-Made Bride is an engaging read that will leave you thinking about the characters long after you’ve turned the last page–which in my estimation makes it the best kind of book.
Hannah loves to exercise. She’s energetic and I really liked that about her. She’s also devoted to her dream, which easily made her a heroine to cheer for!
Jericho isn’t as easy to decipher, but he’s male, so I understood that. Witemeyer did an expert job at pulling me inside his point-of-view, though, and making the process tons of fun.
The love story unfolds like a rose at times and other times whirls like a waterfall. The clashes between the characters made me smile and laugh (I’ve discovered that the author’s witty style has a way of coaxing those reactions from me). Also, the bit of intrigue woven in, though it ended somewhat anticlimactically, certainly added a dash of adventure.
I heartily recommend this book to those looking for a light summer read, as well as those who like a snippet of suspense stirred in. The Christian undertones to this book are thought-provoking…I loved how both Jericho and Hannah worked through their prejudices.
Also, the romance? The book ended too soon, but with a happily-ever-after worthy of a western fairy-tale.
