Eleven Bridesmaid Dresses Don t Lie
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.

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 marrycheated on her.The crush she has on her best friend Blake is atvery best well, crushing. And speed dating has only churned out memorable horror stories.

What will it take to convince her that the Almighty has a better plan than one she's already cooked up in herjournals?Can she turn over her pen and trust someone else to craft a love story beyond her wildest dreams?
