From the description on NetGalley :
A plus-size Texas gal has designs on an old crush in New York Times bestselling author Carolyn Brown’s exuberant, bighearted romance.
In the small town of Celeste, Texas, Mitzi Taylor has never quite fit inside the lines. Nearly six feet tall, flame-haired, and with a plus-size spirit to match every curve, she’s found her niche: a custom wedding-dress boutique catering to big brides-to-be with big dreams. Taking the plunge alongside her two best friends, she’s proud they’ve turned The Perfect Dress into a perfect success.
Just when Mitzi has it all pulled together, Graham Harrison walks back into her life, looking for bridesmaid dresses for his twin daughters. A still-strapping jock whose every gorgeous, towering inch smells like aftershave, the star of all Mitzi’s high school dreams is causing quite a flush.
For Mitzi, all it takes is a touch to feel sparks flitting around her like fireflies. She can just imagine what a kiss could do. Graham’s feeling it, too. And he’s about to make that imagination of Mitzi’s run wild. Is it just a hot summer fling, or are Mitzi’s next designs for herself and seeing her own dreams come true?
My review :
What a perfect little love story – and I’m not just talking about the romance.
This book is all about self-love, which is so refreshing. As women, being confident in our own skin should definitely be a priority, but sadly (at least in my case) it doesn’t seem to be.
Friends and family can make us feel like we are less than simply because of how we look – regardless of how we treat people. But it’s how we see ourselves that is the most important factor.
This book, and all the characters embrace who they are – inside and out. I really appreciated that. Tie that in with some sweet romances, and you’ve got quite a great book.
