Never the Bride
by Rene Gutteridge And Cheryl McKay | Genre: Fiction
Release Date: June 2009
 

Since she was just a little girl, Jessie Stone dreamed up hundreds of marriage proposals, doodled the romantic ideas in her journal with her treasured purple pen, and fantasized about wedding dresses and falling in love. She’s been a bridesmaid nearly a dozen times, waved numerous couples off to sunny honeymoons, and shopped in more department stores for half-price fondue pots than she cares to remember.

But shopping for one key component of these countless proposals hasn't been quite as productive–a future husband. 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 the Almighty has a better plan than one she’s already cooked up in her journals? Can she turn over her pen and trust someone else to craft a love story beyond her wildest dreams?

great fun, easy read! | Posted October 06, 2010
I'm a girl, but not too girly. I've never really been the type to read romance books or watch sappy love movies. I found this book in Barnes & Noble one day, because the title caught my eye. Never The Bride? Hmm. Sounds like me!

I picked it up, and immediately identified with the main character, Jessie. She's secretly in love with her best friend, has a crazy job, and after being a bridesmaid seven times, is still not married. The man she was supposed to marry cheated on her.

One day, God appears in her life, and becomes a part of her everyday routine. He encourages her to hand over the pen to her love story.

Along the way, you see Jessie's doubts. You see her fully put her trust in God, but you also see her struggles.

When I was reading this book, which only took me three days to complete, I felt like I was there. It was fun!

I also found out that this novel is a screenplay! So one day it could be in theaters :)
